Newbie muffler replacement
Hey all, this is my first truck and my first attempt at replacing a muffler, and I have a few dumb questions. Bear with me as I struggle my way through this! I want to replace the stock muffler with a Magnaflow, I'm looking at #11266. Obviously, this 18" muffler is a lot shorter then the stock (somewhere around 36" overall length?). I don't have access to welding equipment so I was planning on clamping all the pieces on. The cat and pipe have previously been replaced to about a foot before the muffler.
Do I need to buy a longer intermediate exhaust pipe to span the extra distance and fit into existing pipe? If so, does anyone have a part number? Can I just buy a length of 2.5" exhaust pipe and fit it on somehow? Does anyone have a good how-to guide for aftermarket muffler installation? Thanks, obviously I'm completely in the dark here. Any help is appreciated!
Yes. All you would have to do is buy the normal 2.5 pipe. Doesn't have to be name brand. If you want my advice though, I would take it into a shop and have them weld the muffler on. My first aftermarket was a magnaflow 44, and two times that deep rumbling bastard vibrated it's way out of the clamp. At that point I welded on a muffler delete pipe.
