VIBRANT MUFFLER

Ok i have two problems (well i think there problems)
Ever since i recently got my exhaust installed which includes and vibrant flat black muffler, ive been seeing black stuff all over the rear of my car. Has anyone experienced this with that muffler?

And second. When my car is completly turned off like no key or anything, it makes a wierd humming sound and it sounds like its coming from the very top of the engine bay like directly behind the stereo. Could that be the antenna or something?

post a picture of how it is installed. if it is set too far back, it may be the exhaust gases damaging your bumper

Re: VIBRANT MUFFLER

^ yeah, same "problem" here...
its
a) new muffler flows better and throws crap more through
b) engine burns small amounts of oil (not that great piston rings) and it end up right there

Re: VIBRANT MUFFLER

My exhaust leaves remnants of oil patches all over the rear of my car as well. Been like that for a while and there's no noticeable damage. Just takes a little scrubbing to clean which is annoying lol
