I had these on my 300 and now on my 400. A bit too quiet on my 400 but it's well worth it for the money. They are no-named on ebay but i'm pretty sure they're the Top Speed Pro-1 axle backs.

No complaints on the quality here. Best $285 i've spent on the car.

Yeah, those are the Top Speed mufflers, with updated dual-wall tips. I had the single wall tips before, same thing - sounded good at first but eventually got that annoying drone. That and all the muffler pairs I've seen were never even - yours looks the same (look at the gap between the muffler tips and the bumper). Not bad for the price I guess, but you get what you pay for. Ended up buying a full cat-back and selling my old Top Speed mufflers for a buck fifty lol

Yeah I noticed the gap difference, its not much, I havnt had a chance to see if its just the mount thats crooked or the actual exhaust is? But Its not to bad if I cant straighten it out lol.

Sure dude, just send me a PM or something and I'll be glad to tell you how they are doing

I Typed in eBay this exact phrase "SC400 Exhaust -universal"

The "-universal" will make the search remove all of the universal crappy exhausts. I guess its against policy to post a link?

304 stainless should be decent (it is a good designation). Boating requires 316 stainless for most things and still shows some rust in areas of contact, etc. Still, I look forward to seeing how these age. Right now they look incredible.
