Smile Replaced Muffler with Magnaflow (check out old muffler)

I had the original muffler replaced with a magnaflow today and was shocked about the condition of the original muffler-with only 4k miles, the metal was distorted and had a purple hue on the back side, it looked like it was plugged up or something.
My new magnaflow is great, sounds good for a v6 and has defiantly given the engine some extra power combined with my CAI. The magnaflow muffler is #12286 and is worth it.

Yeah my SRT as a warping mark too. When you shut the truck off, after a while did you hear a BING sound?

Here's a pic of mine.

Did you get yours replaced under warranty? or did you get an aftermarket one?
The factory muffler must have too much restriction to cause the warping and the discoloration and i noticed it faintly would glow orange at night. When I had my magnaflow installed today, I immediately noticed the truck holds speeds better up hills and has much better acceleration.

Re: Replaced Muffler with Magnaflow (check out old muffler)

I replaced mine at 39k with a Magnaflow and the old factory one came out looking great, I still have it so i'll have to take a pic, it looks like it might only have a few thousand miles on it tops.
