I got mine from Walck's and it was, I believe, made in Canada.  That make it an import?
 
I had to cut a foot off the tail pipe [no it did NOT have five toes and a size 12 Reebock attached to it]
 
I had to add 6" to the long exhaust pipe in order to reach the curved pipe that attaches to the manifold.  I was lucky, I had a piece of pipe that fit.
 
All in all, I found the muffler/pipe issue to be somewhat less than a perfect experience.  However, it was the first thing I ordered, and I might have given some wrong information.

Can't speak for durability, but when I ordered mine from Walck's I was going to go with the US made one so I asked Carl what the difference was and he said "price". He said he stocks them because some people don't want imported stuff. I went with the import kit and other than having to cut an inch off a couple of pipes for a better fit, it went on fine.

For those that have purchased the complete OA? exhaust kits: were you satisfied with the quality? I see Walck's also carries US made pipes as well (also twice as much). I dont want something that will fall apart after a couple years of normal use.
