Default Disappointing

Just got a new flowmaster super 40 put on.... SI/SO. Down right disappointing. Not much louder and not deep at all on my 4.0.

Give it a couple weeks.... they "break-in"...



The Super 40 was my very very close second favorite muffler. It landed just behind the Super 44 as far as deepness and loudness.

Correction.... The muffler is marked INLET on the same side the pipes goes into the muffler. Thanks STL. The muffler is installed in the correct direction just upside down.

Just got to give it time! I dont care what anybody says they truly do "break in". I had the same attitude, just keep driving it and you will notice a difference and remember its not a V8 lol.

I bet if you look on the other side of the muffler. The flowmaster name will be right side up.
