DOOOOOOOO IT!!! I love it!! After having a magnaflow, a flow original 40, flow super 40, glasspack, dynomax ultra flow oval, Super44 beat 'em all. DOOOO IT!


Deep, powerful, loud on the outside, nice mellow tone at idle, it fit all my wants for a muffler. and...sounds AWESOME when following it or seeing it drive by or pull away. I liked it so much, I reused it when I redid all my piping.

Install is really up to you. Hack the old muffler and tailpipe out, clamp or weld the new muffler on, need to get a hanger in there since you just eliminated the stock muffler hangers.(see pics below).

Me personally, I believe in adding larger cat-back pipe..bump it up to 2.5. Bigger pipe aides in breathing better and changes the tone too...deeper. I originally had a single 2.5 done up a few years back...then made seemingly constant muffler changes til I found one I liked. lol. Ran it dumped(nothing behind the muffler for like forever). Then I did a full new setup with 2.5" incoming pipe into the muffler, then dual 2.25" tailpipes. I used a 3" in/dual 2.5" out Super44.





Get an offset in muffler definately.

Here's what your setup could look like.....all my old mufflers went to friends and I installed as follows....used a $2 hanger and a 3/8" bolt through an existing crossmember hole....then some $1.50 clamps....Stock pipe should be 2" for your truck...IDK if you can get Super44's in 2"...so you may need to use a reducer to make it all work like below...

eBay seller PerformancePeddler is always cheapest. Definately get an offset in. outlet is up to you really....center is best for single. If you want duals down the road, order the dual out. BUt I think you're stuck with 3" in/dual 2.5" if you want duals.

stock pipes for your truck, which is virtually identical to mine, should be 2". IDK if super44's can be had in 2"...so look at my above post to see how you can make something work using reducers from an autoparts store.

OR....if worse comes to worse, you can always hitup an exhaust shop and they'll hang it for ya for a small fee...probably reuse your existing tailpipe too.
