the hole is probably to drain water... I have it too. it is in the lowest point of the box so yes... to drain out condensation.

As for the scratch... try scratch remover but BE CAREFUL with black!

Yep, one of the by-products of combustion is water. So a tiny drain hole would be smart in my opinion. Saves the muffler from rotting out.

The hole is absolutely a water drain hole. Prevents water from sitting there, and causing corrosion.


Use polishing compound to remove the scratch, and then wax the area.

Yea it's a drain hole, but they do not drain very good, So if you hear noise under the rearend more than likely it's the water moving around. Glad I got rid of my old exhaust.
