For those of you who have already installed a performance 2 1/2" exhaust system on your 70-83 Z or ZX, and just need a replacement muffler, these are the same type as the performance mufflers used in our complete 2.5" performance exhaust systems. Both inlet and outlet are 2 1/2". The overall length, from the tip of the inlet pipe to the tip of the outlet pipe, is 18 1/2 inches. The body of the muffler is 14 inches long by 9 3/4 inches tall by 4 1/4 inches wide. The size and configuration over the years were generally the same. May be slightly different in overall dimensions from much older systems, but should fit with all 2 1/2" performance systems we've sold for 70-83 Z/ZX through the years.

Manufacturers do change dimensions slightly from time to time (and generally do so without any notice). However these mufflers should always be close to these sizes, and easy to make fit without significant effort or modifications.

Application Note:
These are only for Motorsport Auto 2 1/2" aftermarket exhaust systems. Stock pipes are significantly smaller, and other aftermarket systems may not be close enough in dimensions to fit well. See Related Items for a 70-78 stock replacement muffler.

Installation Note:
Oval performance mufflers should be positioned at an angle for a proper fit on 70-78 Z-Cars.

Some parts may not fit every version of every year listed. See product Title & Description for any application breakdowns or customization options, and contact us with any questions.
