To those of you who have installed a Magnaflow muffer what did you or the muffler shop do about the aft attach points(hangers) on the stock muffler. Do you cut those off and weld them to the Magnaflow muffler or do you just not use those hangers. It seems alot of stress would be placed on the muffler weld points if those aft hangers were ignored.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

I have not done that on mine but some of my folks have them welded too with the hangers.

The guy that did mine just welded on some hangers. He also reused the tail pipe section of the stock muffler and had a tip welded on also. Best 150 bucks parts and labor I spent for a nice sound.

do you have any pictures of your muffler? i want to switch out my muffler for an aftermarket one because i really dont have money to spend the whole exhaust system. do you know the pros and cons of just replacing the muffler?

You will get nice sound results with a muffler swap. I suggest the 14" magnaflow, I have it and it sounds great. The shop removed the old and rewelded on the new. Stay away from larger than stock pipes and most suggest keeping it a single exit. The only other mod would be headers as our stock exhaust is stainless from the factory, I believe, someone correct me if I'm wrong. Enjoy the music...

hi, for just a magnaflow muffler install about $100.
give or take.
give it time for the inside to melt, for louder sound.
or go with the smallest magnaflow they make.
same thing wait until it melts.
you will like the sound.

It sounds great. I have mine dumped right before the axle. Check with local law enforcement and inspection stations to see if this is legal in your state.

The stock setup IS a CAI.

If you want to spend money and have a reusable filter just get a drop in. If you really want to spend money and change the sound you may want to go with the Volant. Best and closest to stock setup that I have seen. JMHO

No it isn't.

I went with Truflow but they went out of business within the last year or so. That one changes the tubing and uses the stock air box that draws air from the fender well. I have yet to actually install the tubing but I am using the reusable filter.

If you do some searching on CAIs on this site there are a lot of opinions on what works and what doesn't and at what RPMs. Some love the K&N and others pulled it off their truck after using it. Some good information and what people have actually tested.
