Default Bob's Mufflers in Raleigh

So I hope that I'm putting this in the right section. I was driving around NC State's campus and had to get a few things before work. I stumbled upon a shop on Tryon Rd named Bob's Mufflers. THESE GUYS ARE AMAZING! I went to go look at what they had for our cars and prices and was blown away. One of the guys told me that he could do gutted glass-packs for $88 a muffler and would only take about an hour to do. Now I am in no way a car guru, I'm just learning about cars and such but this seems like a good deal. I was just wondering if this is a good buy and would it effect my emissions passing? I was posting this in the Carolina Chapter cause I was wondering if maybe someone else has done business with them or even heard of them?

Any muffler should pass incpection granted it's not leaking, etc... I am not sure what they mean when they say "gutted" glasspacks... I see no reason to gut a glasspack. Anyway most glasspacks are around $25-35 + install. If you want an agressive tone, they are what you want. Skip gutting anything though.

Thank you for the information. I was incorrect in my description. They wanted to empty the glasspacks out from what I understand. I have done some research on this so that I limit the stupid comments but glasspacks normally get louder overtime due to the fiberglass not absorbing as much as when they are new correct? I just don't want the car sounding like a Honda lawnmower lol.

I've seen that shop, I know they did really good work on my buddy's 280zx. I remember him saying they seemed really strict on anything emissions related, so any work they do will definitely pass

Well thats good, I talked to a few people on States Campus and they have done a lot of trucks, but I haven't really heard much about cars. Plus, even if it didn't pass emissions....I have people

haha you don't even need people around here.. I got mine inspected last week at the Shell by Crabtree, and they passed it no questions asked, didnt even have to bribe them or anything. There WAS a suspicious $6 parts charge on the invoice, I think they knew what was up

HAHA nice, I love when lack of detail works for the common man. I'm just now getting to a place to save for my build that I ultimately want. I just need to find a local place to get parts and someone to show me how engines work and how to build. I could just pay someone to do it but I want the satisfaction of doing it myself and also learning a valuable skill.

Did you just move down here? As for a local shop, I would recommend Fastlane Motorsports, they are fantastic. They're a Mustang only shop, located in Benson (about 30 mins down 64 from here).

Well I was born and raised at Camp Lejeune. I moved here for when I went to high school. I didn't really didn't start getting into cars until I stumbled upon a classic muscle car show near base. I was an instant love and I want to be able to buy cars and restore them.

For simple stuff that doesnt take internal motor stuff just learn to do it yourself brudda. Its not hard. I am sure there are a bunch of locals who wouldnt mind helping...I know I would have no problems helping out on most stuff...I do all my own work...

THis last week we did the headers and x-pipe on my car in my garage on jack stands...was going to have Fastlane do it, but I was quoted well north of 400 dollars to have them installed so we bit the bullet and it ended up being pretty simple and took about 5 hours wrench time between me and a friend. I have never had a mechanic touch my car except for my friend and I....seriously, most stuff is pretty simple...its more a case of having the right tool for the job (and enough beer to see you through the entire install)

Fair Enough! I would also rather do it myself I just know that I will need help or even just guidance. So if there is anyone out there willing to help me learn or even if I can see some work being done on other mustang...That would be great.

Sounds good to me. Just PM me with the details so you don't have to put personal information on the forum if you don't want that stuff out there

First things first, get a shop manual for your car and take a look through it. Piedmont Custom Motorsports in North Raleigh is another local Mustang shop, some of us from the Raleigh area Mustang club had a dyno day there a couple of months ago.

well I picked up some mufflers from a guy that had a 01 Bullitt! He also threw in the H pipe just for helping him with some computer stuff. I was looking at the mufflers and was wondering if they would work with the GT? I got them for free so if it doesn't thats cool, but it would be nice if they do!

Crawl under and take a look man. You can take the stock off and match them up on the ground and see if the hangers are the same or not. It will be very apparent if they arent. I am pretty sure they will work though....just a guess that the 01 - 04 are probably the same.
