Yes. If at all possible, Leistritz followed by Ernst, followed by that spawn of satan Jopex. You might find a suitable muffler-only from the Pelican Parts crowd, a simple enough modification allows you to use an early style 914 muffler.

I found a source that states the muffler/ exhaust for a type 2 bus will work on the type 4 - anyone know if this is true?

There were around five Type 4 BUS exhausts setups. Colin has an excellent illustration of the differences somewhere that I can't find. In a nutshell the 72-74 bus exhaust is close in size, shape, and mounting, but usually has a different tailpipe exit location. I can't honestly say if it's a drop-in fit or not.

Here is a 411/412 muffler picture I pilfered from this thread:
