MBRP has been making complete exhausts for off-road trucks and Jeeps for some time, but its recently delved into the universal muffler market. Now you can get the same great mufflers without an entire exhaust system. While the complete exhaust systems might be great for a vehicle owner with a supported application, it leaves out a lot of consumers who want to build custom exhausts and need only a muffler. That's why MBRP has recently released two new universal stainless-steel mufflers-a chambered muffler and a material-packed muffler-to better meet the needs of more customers. We had the opportunity to try out the chambered muffler recently, and added to a custom exhaust we were building on one of our recent project vehicles. 1. MBRP offers two new universal mufflers. They both feature stainless-steel bodies, but one has a chambered muffling design while the other muffler has a straight-through perforated pipe and is a glasspack-style muffler. They are 14 inches long, 10 inches wide, and 4 inches thick.1. MBRP offers two new universal mufflers. They both feature stainless-steel bodies, but o 2. We recently bought this old Cherokee Chief, and had some trouble passing the smog-emissions test. The muffler hung down low, was too large, and didn't sound great either. This was the perfect time to get some new parts welded into our exhaust system at Mesa Muffler in Costa Mesa, California.2.

Mesa Muffler had a new Catco 3-inch inlet/3-inch outlet catalytic converter for us to add into our exhaust system.3.

Since we were trying to keep costs down with this build and the Chief already had some decent downpipes on it, Bud at Mesa Muffler cut the exhaust before the old catalytic converter. He added our new cat and MBRP muffler in place with the help of some stands.4. Since we were trying to keep costs down with this build and the Chief already had some 5. Cherokee Chiefs have offset rear axles and a driver side-mounted fuel tank. This doesn't leave much room to run a muffler. Within the space we had to work with, Bud found that the MBRP muffler sat best in a tilted position.5. Cherokee Chiefs have offset rear axles and a driver side-mounted fuel tank. This doesn' 6. With the muffler, cat, and 3-inch tubing all lined up, Bud started to weld everything together. The MBRP muffler has clamp-on ends, but Mesa Muffler is a shop that believes in welding as many of the connections as possible.6.

After the cat and the MBRP muffler were welded on, Bud took some time to sculpt an exhaust tube to exit over our rear axle and out the back of the vehicle.7.

The chambered muffler we put on our AMC 360 V-8 wasn't too loud at all. In fact, it was fairly quiet until the throttle was floored. The chambered muffler gives a nice throaty rumble, but not like a completely open muffler would (give). The new catalytic converter and MBRP muffler package also helped out emissions immensely, and this old Cherokee Chief passed smog with flying colors. If you're on the verge of passing or not passing a smog emissions test, a new exhaust will many times make the difference.
