    Muffler shot..no new to be found..

    My muffler is shot and nowhere to be found new....
    Can anybody tell me if the muffler of a 3 gen. Prelude (1988-1991) will fit my 2 gen. Prelude (1984-1987) ? It is also a dual tip muffler. Have searched all over the world and had some orders refunded already.
    If you know a place where i can still get them please let me know.Need a fix for mot-check.

    Auke.

    You can't have a local muffler shop weld a universal job in there?

    Well,i guess everything is makeable,but I prefer original above anything. I might have no other option though,except maybe an all handmade stainless steel exhaust copied of the original.But that would cost me about half of what I paid for the car a year ago. Collecting some info right now.

    Auke.

    Honda will probably not carry mufflers anymore.

    However, you can maybe get a BOSAL muffler. Bosal is a supplier of replacement exhaust parts for manufacturers around the world.

    The one you need is the 278-163. This happens to be the same muffler for the 2G Accord hatchback.

    There is currently one on Ebay

    So, did it fit? I recently bought an 89 Prelude and have been trying to find an A pipe.

    I ran into a similar issue with my 3g hatchback. Availability was slim to none around my area in addition to the part cost. It forced me to build my own and im glad, i upgraded the whole exhaust to a 2.25" mandrel bent tubing, also had a new Catalytic converter, resonator, and muffler. Ended up being cheaper than the actual replacement, may want to consider just having it fixed at a muffler shop unless you have access to a welder.

    Just an update, my entire BOSAL exhaust purchased from Rock Auto fit like a charm, so the stock exhaust including 90s downpipe, mid pipe & muffler all were a straight bolt on.
