Default Anyone hear of VMS Racing Mufflers?

Was about to buy a magnaflow 14" muffler and came across VMS which is basically a magnaflow knockoff. Looks pretty legitimate, all stainless and essentially the same thing, for half the cost. So was wondering if anyone has heard of them?

I'd really love to hear any feedback on these mufflers myself. They look very similar to the Magnaflows in construction and quality. snrusnak, I saw in another thread you bought one. How's it sound? Power gain? Would it be too loud for a long highway drive or towing a small boat up the mountain?

Hey I haven't yet installed it. I have everything I need just waiting on some time. I'm pretty busy, hopefully I can do it one of these weekends in nov or dec but we will see how that goes... I will say the quality is surprisingly good. It IS stainless steel(I even tested it by putting water on it and it hasn't rusted after all this time since I bought it. Welds are decent to good. And it is a straight through muffler, so performance should be roughly equal to magnaflow. I'm really happy with it, only bad thing is made in china which I didn't realize.

Thanks for the reply!

I'm really leaning towards this. I've listened to some youtube vids with these on and they sound good. I think you are right about performance. The China thing does suck but I have a hard enough time getting my wife to let me spend MY money on myself without paying twice as much for parts.
