    Exclamation 845 Group Buy - Cat Back / Axle Back 2.5 / 3 Muffler

    If you place a deposit (30% of total (around 175 USD for a 2.5" axleback)) by November 7th, 845 will give you 25$ off the price of your muffler.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...dgI/edit#gid=0

    So for anyone who isn't on the facebook group, and has been interested in a Cat back / axle back exhaust, with dual exits, here you go!.

    IF the group buy is successful, you will get a dual exit catback/ axle back exhaust, with a CUSTOM muffler, based on a similar vibrant brand.

    If the group buy isn't successful, 845 said they will still make the exhausts, but it will be using a vibrant brand muffler, which will make the costs more than what you see here.

    https://www.facebook.com/bmcinerney2...6732858687326/ - This is a video of the exhaust in action. If you aren't a member of the forte group, you totally should become one :P ***NOTE **** This is the Downpipe, cat / resonator delete mid pipe AND muffler in action. Just the muffler will be quieter than this.

    So, if youre interested at all, please sign up! Just add your name to the google doc.

    845 needs 30% up front to get everything in motion, then the rest is due when its done, OR, if you contact them they may be able to get you on a payment plan.


    If anyone else wants to weigh in, or anyone form 845 needs to make any corrections, please do! We need this!!

    *** I do not represent 845 Motorsports, I just want there to be a Cat Back available for us to enjoy! ***

    Trocko, what are you expecting to pay for shipping to NS? I have a feeling something like this is gonna be astronomical for Canadians. Add insult to injury with our dollar and a simple axle-back exhaust is looking at close to a grand.

    Well, I am trying to sell my current muffler delete.

    I made a box to fit it, and its looking like 300 CAD to ship it to the USA.... so, assuming that 845 has some slight shipping deal since they are a company, and maybe if they use a v band flange near the muffler to reduce package height, I am expecting to pay around 150 USD for shipping... which is like 200 Cad....

    Total cost, estimated for me is $850. Just for the axle back.

    I spent over 500 Cad on a muffler delete, getting all the SS parts and stuff, then took it to a local shop, who I thought knew what they were doing. They made a little mess of it, and Its just not what im looking for. My Kia dealership told me they have a KR (Kia Racing) exhaust that they could get in for me. Axle back, 3" full mandrel bends, TIG welded, dual muffler, very nice looking exhaust. 1500$ installed......

    So looking at it that way, 850 isnt that bad at all, and it wouldn't be hard to do up a mid pipe once the warranty is gone.

    845 hasn't given me an exact quote for shipping yet, but I assume they will soon. As soon as we have 12 people they are going to place the order to have the mufflers made. ALSO, If you put a deposit down before SEMA ends, they are taking 25$ off the price of the muffler, to entice people to join

    And my last tid bit haha, 845 said they may be holding a tuning event in Toronto, and would try to ship mufflers from there to reduce cost for us. I for one, am willing to wait for that if it saves money. lol

    Why is the smaller the diameter the more expensive? Isn't it less materials?

    Who's car is in in the clip? What was done to the exhaust to get that sound? I only have a muffler delete right now and I'm growing to like it but since this is coming with a muffler so I'm confused why it sounded so aggressive in the clip.

    it shouldn't be, 2.5" is 500, 3" is 550.

    It's Brian's car, he had a 3" DP, 2.5" Catless, resonator-less mid pipe, to the 2.5" axleback above. With just the axle back, it would be quieter, as long as you keep your cat and resonator. Once you start taking those off it gets that loud lol.

    Yeah, I found my muff delete had CRAZY cabin resonance (drone) around 3k rpm and it was driving me nuts. I think this muffler will HUGELY help that with the rest of my exhaust being stock.
