Default Magnaflow Install questions

My truck needs a better sound and I was thinking about going for a 18" magnaflow http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/s...ne=all&id=3552 My question is how easy is the install? I have very little to no experience working on cars and trucks and was wondering if this is something I could do myself or if It would be better to pay someone to do it?

I don't know about that exact one... it looks similar to one i put in on my truck

Its really straight forward, not tough at all, i don't have a lot of experience and i did it easily.. it just takes a bit of time lining it all up perfect in the end, and getting the hooks in the rubber hangers was a pain in the butt, but doesn't take an expert

that's really great news...now I'm not so scared to purchase a more expensive exhaust system because I could knock it out myself. How was removing the old system?

Well my old system was only a month old haha so its a totally different story

I found a website with a reallllly cheap magna flow exhaust system on it, then i went to auto anything and they price matched it, i don't know if they carry yours or not, but if they do you should do the same thing! i got over $300 off with price match!

Magnaflow is usually straight foward install, or you can get a universal muffler and bring it to a muffler shop to install it. Either way magnaflow is a great producf.
