yep it does.... but it is basicaly a cheap peice of garbage so.....as long as you know your not gettign a high quality peice that is gonna be a "fart can" then that's cool...but other than that I'd look into a nice magnaflow....not a canister cause that is way played out....and looks stupid...

a canister style muffler is basicacly a big cylinderical shaped muffler....liek the r1 racing one....shaped like a can jsut get a normal looking magnaflow...like the oval ones I guess....get the piping for the entire exhaust replaced aswel with 2 1/4 or 2inch piping to see some actual gains in hp jsut replacign the muffler might give 1 hp.....but an entire "mandrel bent" exhaust with provide much better gains...keep you resonator or get a new one and keep your cat or get a high flow cat.....
