Shorty Mufflers Sizes
The Porter Muffler holds a unique place in the performance world. It is the original performance muffler, starting production in 1931, and remains the standard for performance, exhaust tone, and durability to this day. The Porter “Shorty” Muffler is for vehicles with limited mounting room as they have a 14″ body length and a 20″ overall length making them the perfect mufflers for tight installations. Porter Muffler “Shortys” are also the choice for those who want a little more volume to their engine’s sound effects, but still want a quieter cabin.
Porter Muffler’s “Shortys” give you a deep, throaty sound at idle that is unique, powerful, and unmistakable. When it’s time to press the “GO” pedal the straight-through design unleashes all the power and sound effects you’re looking for in a performance muffler, and once you are up to speed the sound effects taper off to a quiet background hum without the booming drone other performance mufflers create. Yes, even the “Shortys” will keep the drone away!
Porter Mufflers feature densely-packed stainless steel wool that eliminate the tinny sounds, the echoes, the resonance and the harsh noises that are common in other mufflers. All you hear is a deep, rich tone that makes your car stand out at the show and on the street. That stainless-steel wool is packed inside a 16-gauge case with 12-gauge end-caps made of either ceramic-painted mild steel or a polished 304 (austenitic) stainless steel for those who want a little more flash or durability. The thick case combined with the densely packed stainless steel cancel the drone and vibrations transferred to your passenger compartment so you can cruise down the road and listen to your radio or have a conversation with your passenger about something other than the heat and noise coming from below! Simple in design yet incredibly effective, other companies simply cannot match the performance of a Porter Muffler and that is why it is still the gold standard that every other performance muffler is judged against.
You’ve invested a lot of time, effort, and money into your car or truck so finish it off right! When you decide to give your ride its personality, its identity, its voice, don’t pick a muffler based on hype or marketing. Go with the legend, the one that set the standard, pick one based on performance and longevity. Put a pair of Porters on it and discover why they have remained the choice of performance enthusiasts and professional builders for over 80 years.
