My jba catback came ups yesterday and the box was damaged bad and looked to be taped up by the shipper. My question is what does the jba muffler look like is it oval or round? The one I got is oval 22" long and with a dent or two and also scratched up from not being wrapped. I thought the jba was a round muffler. The muffler I got has not one marking or number on it. I have a call in to jba bit no response yet. Just want to make sure im not being ripped off.

It's supposed to be oval. The round one pictured online isn't the actual muffler

The old JBA catback came with a 7" round K&N muffler. The newer sets have an oval muffler.

Here's my JBA with the round K&N muffler:

That was never determined by anyone. The 7" round is louvered inside and has K&N stamped on it. The interior pics I saw of the new JBA oval looks pretty much like a Magnaflow design.

Finally got to talk to a rep at JBA and he comfirmed I had the right muffler. He also stated the same thing about the round muffler was the old K&N and the new was oval and 22" long. I asked him if it was a magaflow and he hesitated and said they had a manufacture build it to thier specs...lol Its probably a magnaflow. I only paid $254 to the door for it and may get more off due to the dents and dings which arnt bad just cosmetic. By the way I love the sound not too loud just right.:)

From what I can tell by looking @ the pic, it does indeed look like Magnaflow at least manufactured it. Or at the very least, someone veeeeery similar. I know their Evol mufflers are made by IMCO. Seen them first hand @ their Schulenberg plant, along with the Cherrybomb line.

Sound is good......highway drone is pathetic though on the JBA system.

highway drone is barely noticeable. it is very subdued. on the other hand, city driving drone can be annoying at times.
i do love the start up, idle and wot sounds.

Drone must be from the headers. I notice it being louder in town on acceleration but drone isn't bad. The s&b cai is just as loud if not louder than the jba.
