Street Sprite Muffler

Postby Joe Schlosser » Sun Jun 22, 2014 5:22 pm

Looking for suggestions for a decent street muffler for my Bugeye Sprite.
New 1275, with Kent 276 cam and Maniflow LCB header, 1 3/4 inch pipe to the back.
Just put everything together and it is a bit louder than I would like for the street with the muffler that I was using with old setup.
Old muffler was adequate for the 1100 with a non race LCB header and 1 1/2 inch rear pipe but quite loud with the present setup.

Heartthrob makes a bullet style muffler that I have used with a similar setup to what you have. It has 2 perforated pipes inside the housing and it's pretty quiet, but a bit louder than stock. I don't remember the part number, but I think it comes in a few different sizes and pipe openings. I even found it at JC Whitney several years ago.

Looks like a good choice. There are a lot of places that seem to have this muffler.
Think I will go with a 1 3/4" setup. Have to check the overall length I want
