Default 14in mufflex installed this afternoon

I installed the 14in mufflex setup this afternoon with the help of a couple of friends; miller lite, craftsman and wd-40. The hardest part of the install was getting the OEM muffler off. My truck has 7000 miles on it but it took all i had to get that clunker of a muffler out. After the OEM muffler was removed the install cruised through fairly quickly. After all said-and-done i thought it would be louder than it is. I like the noise but i was expecting more.

Happy Holidays Everyone.....

Give it like 800 miles and it will open up a lot. Take a video now and compare it after those miles and see what the difference is. Mine is probably 2x as loud or more since day one.

X2 , GohstR1der is correct they will get louder. Also you can expect a metal burning type smell for the first coupe days , dont be concerned its just the oil burning off of the muffler. It had me a little worried at first but after some reasearch I found out that they put an oil on the muffler, I quess to keep it shiny over time while it sits on display in shops . Whaterver the reason it had me a little worried but it was burned off and the smell was gone in a few days
