The stock muffler is very restrictive. I saw a pic on here somewhere that showed what it looks like cut open, but I can't find the pic on this site now. The exhaust comes into the body, then has to bounce off the rear of the case, then doubles back and to an internal pipe that comes out the back...if that makes any sense... You might try doing a search for the stock muffler cut open. My Magnaflow 14" required two pieces of pipe to be added between the new muffler and the existing tailpipes. No big deal, had it installed at a local shop for $160 including the muffler. No increase in gas mileage tho...can't keep my right foot off the floor now!
