Fitting another model muffler to '00-'02 Magnum?

So I need to replace my muffler, want something factory.

The '00-'02 Magnum muffler have the unique 12:00 and 6:00 mounts.

Everything on eBay is $80+ and up.

Wondering if anyone has tried retrofitting say, a Sportsman muffler from another year or model, plenty of those on eBay that are way cheaper.

I looked at that when I put the 330 engine in my MOSE Magnum. There was not exhaust with the machine when I got it and I had gotten the exhaust for the 330. Problem I found was that the mid pipe is different to so not only would I have to manufacture new mounts for the muffler, but it would have to move forward to match up with the muffler. That would have put it too far forward for the plastic to fit.

Another consideration is that the exhaust is...well tuned for lack of a better term....for the engine. The right amount of silencing but leaving the best performance. Not sure a later sportsman would fit that bill. You don't say what size magnum you have but if you get a muffler of the same size displacement it might work.

My 2Cents, it isn't worth the effort for the little $ savings

Stave,

Thanks for the reply. It's a 325. Odd thing is, our muffler was fitted to everything from the 325 to the 500. Other alternative is the Kimpex Exsound??

So anything from a 325 to a 500 should work performance wise. And a muffler from any of those models should work with the exhaust pipe and be a bolt on. That's good news! I haven't looked at the Kimpex piece, but I know the company has been around for a long time. If they have something for the model, I would trust them.

1st Machine
2001 Magnum 325 with a blown engine; rebuilt 2004. Broke timeing chain 2016 rebuilt again and still running. Warn winch and Moose 60" plow

Wife's machine:

Completed Project machine:
2001 Magnum 325 MOSE with a blown engine. Transplanted a 2005 Magnum 330 engine. Committed suicide on the trail Oct 2016. Spun Rod Bearing after oild cooler line failure. Rebuilding Engine.

No...I never found an alternative in my price range.

I did though use Craigslist and found a stock muffler from someone parting a machine for $25!
