I plan on getting rid of the lunch box muffler/resonator on my SVTF. Im curious as to if it is really worth the $50 to have it done. Im not expecting any HP gains. Just curious as to if its worth the time and money.

i guess it depends on why you want to remove it. like you said, you won't see any performance gains. personally, i'd leave it on. spend your money on something else.

$50 is a downpayment for a real exhaust install, like a magnaflow muffler and a shop weld up... that shouldn't cost more than $200, usually a $75 muffler, and a $75 (give or take) for labor...

If you don't want performance, just a change in exhaust tone, then it would be worth it.

50 bucks? For what? Thier ripping you off. to cut one pipe, bend and weld one 12" section back in it's place, $20 bucks max! It'll sounds a bit different, but not much. No power gains.
