No, it's just a regular muffler, just very, very small. Think cheese grader surrounded by steel wool in a can.
Here's a link to it on the magnaflow site:

Is this muffler on par with a cannon-type muffler? Aside from a big polished tip built in, aren't these equal in sound absorption?

call around next time, you should have been able to get 4 90s and 20' of sanitary grade SS for less than that plus your muffler and flanges.
Where do we find these stiffer hangers? I'm looking for some stiffer of the stock rubber hangers. Stiffer ones of these:

If theres no way to stiffen these, I'm going to have to make a bump stop type thing so the whole exhaust stops moving over and bumping on right turns.

Maybe you missed my post? Take some intake worm clams and put them around the hangers. Only way i've seen to stiffen hangers up is with crap tied around them such as worm clamps and zip ties.

Having no experience with cans, I'm going to say no - even from the outside the design of a can is much different than a strait through muffler (Which is what this is). I don't know about the internals though.

They are the only thing that rusts, and they rust quickly. As if they are mild steel but Vibrant has told me they are 409ss, will rust, are magnetic, and are 'consumable'.

Looks like yours are also 409 stainless. Hopefully they won't rust like mine do.
