We want you to get the most out of your muffler. These guidelines will help ensure longevity, and help prevent voiding your warranty.
Professional installation is highly recommended.
Improper installation voids the warranty.
Paradox Performance Mufflers are directional.
The inlet should be clearly marked on all Paradox Performance Mufflers.
Do NOT allow tailpipe to touch internal components.
If the outlet pipe/tail pipe touches the internal components, then sound quality will suffer greatly. Do not put pipe so far in the outlet that it touches the internal components.
Install your muffler as far back in the system as possible.
The shorter the length of pipe after the Paradox Performance Muffler, the higher the sound quality.
For more sound control, install two Paradox Performance Mufflers in-line, or add a high-flow resonator.
This is highly effective, and has a negligible effect on flow.
You may not need to upgrade the entire system.
More is not always better. Upgrading an entire system with (for example) over-sized pipes and “duals” could result in excessive sound volume. The more you upgrade the exhaust, the louder it is likely to become.
Beware of deleting emission controls/catalytic converters.
This is illegal for most street vehicles, and could result in undesirable sound and performance.
Elite Series (Does NOT Apply to Signature Series or Hot Tamale):
Do NOT attempt to alter the inlet/outlet size.
Because of its stainless steel construction, necks are non-expandable.
Do NOT use “Saddle”/”U” clamps
“Band clamps” and welding are both acceptable.
