Muffler Options?
 
I currently have a rusted out muffler on my 4.7 and it is to loud and it rattles way to much to just leave it the way it is. Time to replace it but I don't know what I should replace it with. I don't want anything that is obnoxious loud but I do want to have a mild rumble to make it sound mean. I also only want to change out just the muffler, I don't want a whole cat-back system. My price range is $100-$150. What are some of my options for a muffler I could buy off the internet and just take to a shop and have them weld it on for me?

i had the 50 series on my old 04 with the 4.7 and it kinda sounded like a mustang,not to loud but definitley border line in your case,i had the shop move it further back for more of a rumble

thanks for the input. I don't really mind the mustang sound cause i personally like it but what does it sound like inside the cabin when accelerating. I just don't wanna have the drone like i currently have.

I have a walker quietflow ss and I think it is great. I had a dynomax super turbo and there was just too much highway drone while driving. I could not stand it. So i read about this walker muffler and i think it gives a nice sound on acceleration but quiet while cruising. NO highway drone which to me is important since i drive 40 miles one way to work a day.

I bought it on amazon and the shipping was free at the time. http://www.amazon.com/Walker-Exhaust...ar=1&carId=005

And it currently looks like there's a deal of some sorts so you might want to check it out. Id seriously consider the quietflow ss if you don't want drone while driving.

how much would it usually charge for someone to weld it on?

I paid $225 for the muffler, and installation. I think the muffler is about $100, so $125 for labor I suppose.

I went to a meineke muffler shop in Chicago and i was charged 85 after taxes i believe for it welded in.

I was thinking about getting the flowmaster 50 series but the thing is it has a single in and dual outs instead of a single in and single out. Would it be hard for a shop to bend some pipe to make dual tips out of the back (any interference from the axel or spare?) I do like the look of the dual tips and it is cheaper than just the single out. I can get the dual for $85 shipped as opposed to $130 for the single tip. Whats everyones opinion?

My 50 series has a single in and single out. Just make sure you buy the right one.

You can do dual exhaust with no problems, but it'll cost you more.

I did see that one but it cost more than Im getting the duals for so I figured Ill pay a little extra to have two pipes coming out the back. Either one i get, they will both work, its all about how much money I want to spend I guess. How do you like your flowmaster? To much drone? To loud? Did you notice a gain in horsepower and MPG?
