Cheap source for Magnaflow DI/DO muffler

Hello All,

If you are looking for the Magnaflow in 2.5" Dual In/Dual Out, PerformancePeddler.com is a great source. You will need the part # of the muffler you want. Summit is a great place to research different mufflers on a point and click system for different setups you may be thinking about. All facts are not posted, such as this particular muffler has an internal TruX pipe which saves you having to put one on (and pay for it). I should add that this muffler is polished Stainless Steel. I got the information on this particular muffler from Rod (racecougar). Here is his thread that gives his system specs:

http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=54520

Here is the link where you can see his system:

Beyond my needs but I love the muffler setup. Sits right in the tunnel with room to spare. Truly awesome! Anyways, here are two links so you can see the cost of the muffler Rod uses. Magnaflow, on their site, posts a list price of $255. Check these out:

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

http://www.performancepeddler.com/de...CT_ID=MAG14468

The trick is, with PerformancePeddler, put in a best offer. I offered $100 shipped. The offer back was $110.64 shipped. I took it! Maybe I could have negotiated lower but seemed darn good to me. I thank Rod for the direction he gave me and look forward to putting all the parts on I am gathering together with the help of the talented people in this forum. Hope this helps someone still searching for the true duals.

Thanks for the link. My 01 4.6 truck sounded awesome with a Magnaflow DI/DO setup. I want to do something similar for my 05 5.4 truck.

Is this a replacement for the resonator thats inbetween the cats and the rear mufflers? If so will replacing just this part be possible by a home mechanic and will it offer a gain in HP or any performance (not just sound)?

Thanks for any responses. I really do not want to go and get a whole new exhaust system if I am just going to be doing small modifications (all I have done so far is the intake mod with a cone K&N) + the whole money thing. I rather change my tranny fluid and put a tranny cooler in to ensure reliability than spend 5 times the cash on an exhaust. Priorities first :/.

if you can weld you can do it.

This muffler is a Duel in and Duel out, so if you have duel exhaust it would work better for you, if not you'd need to take it to a exhaust shop and have some customizing to make this work.

The flowmasters had a little louder and deeper idle, and a little smoother sound to them, sounded great i thought. The Borlas have a tad quieter idle, but the two Borla mufflers are louder than one mid mounted DI/DO Flowmaster that i had before.

I really like the way the borlas sound driving and especially when you get on it, its alot more agressive sounding. just driving around and all theres a diffrence for sure. But idling, the flowmasters sounded much nicer to be honest.

I can weild but need someone to let me borrow the equip lol . Thanks for the response!

And btw I have the false dual setup. I believe this is where the left and right cat go off from thier own pipes than combine into one pipe. This single pipe goes into the resonator and than it goes out in one pipe, splits into two and than goes to the two rear mufflers.

I just do not want to spend $500 for a performance gain that is going to be maybe 5 horse power sine I have a pretty stock engine except the intake. Now if I had pi cams, heads and intake maybe it would be worth it because the new exhaust would be needed to take full advantage of the modifications. But i am getting ahead of myself.

Anyway thanks again for all the help guys
