Muffler setup
 
Ive decided im getting a Hooker Aerochamber muffler. But compared to my stock exhaust setup, what size muffler inlet/outlet should i get? And yes i know it looks terrible, but it was on there when i bought the truck. I dont even know what kind it is. And it sounded good the way it is until it something inside it started rattling.:sad: Incase you cant read the numbers on the picture, thats 2 3/4 in and 3 in.

do a 3" si/so....and is the muffler straight through? don't do a chambered one..

Looks like typical Flowmaster construction and rust to me. :D

I'd go with a 3" in and out.

^^^^ Times two!!!!

Well im not exactly sure if its straight through or not...whats a good straight through muffler? Ever heard of Miroso spiral flow?

Man, I sure love my Magnaflow. Used to be a big Flowmaster believer but after putting in a straight through Magnaflow, they're so much smoother without a lot of back burble, less bark and less raspy with a nice low rumbly tone. I think on any of the newer motors if you're keeping your cats in place, go with a magnaflow.

Well which magnaflow muffler should i go with? I want a deep rumble to my exhaust, not too loud unless i floor it

916Timmy 06-12-2011 08:05 PM

If you don't have resonators, I would go with an 18" or 22".

Raneman 06-12-2011 08:18 PM

Hmm, ok. And what kind of paint do I need to paint it black?

916Timmy 06-12-2011 08:31 PM

Any high temp enamel will work. BBQ paint is what I use....the Magnaflow mufflers are stainless steel though and won't rust! :)
