Helpful Hints

EMPI Header and Muffler Compatibility

EMPI offers a number of different header and muffler combinations. For any given header there are commonly a number of mufflers that will bolt up to it directly. However, some of the header and muffler combinations are not interchangeable.

EMPI standard, 1 o'clock offset flange mufflers will only fit EMPI standard, 1 o'clock offset flange headers.

EMPI Premium, 1 o'clock centered flange mufflers will only fit EMPI Premium, 1 o'clock centered flange headers.

EMPI 12 o'clock flange mufflers and headers are not compatible with 1 o'clock mufflers and headers.

EMPI 12 o'clock large 3 bolt flange mufflers will not fit EMPI's Tuck-Away Header.

Mufflers & Headers from different manufacturers are not interchangeable!

EMPI headers and mufflers are not compatible with other manufacturer's mufflers and headers. Do not mis-match headers and mufflers from other manufacturers such as a Bugpack header with an EMPI muffler. The muffler will not sit at the correct angle on the back of the vehicle and will either hit the body or hit the ground. If you do not know which header you have you are better off replacing the header and muffler together to ensure a proper fit.

EMPI mufflers will only fit on EMPI headers
Bugpack mufflers will only fit on Bugpack headers.
