Default Series 40 questions.

On my 3.0L V6 I was planning on swapping out the Muffler with a Flowmaster Series 40. Would it sound good with the stock pipes? What size are those pipes and is it a hard mod?

The pipes arent hard, Just get adapters. I got the 40 series, I thought it would be a little louder once it broke in but it wasnt. Don't get me wrong, It sounds good but I just wanted a bit louder

You can still pass emissions right?

I don't think sound is going to change new or old. And I don't think that it can break in. There is no material baffeling to muffel the sound, just plates of steel at varying angles. I suppose if the steel angles rust/rot, it would change.

I have had two on my ranger, the weld rusted thru on the exit pipe on the first one, I put the exact same one back in and there was no difference in sound from a 3yr old one to a new one.

Basically like an inspection making sure your truck doesn't spit too much harmful stuff into the air and what not. It's why dumping your exhaust or running straight headers is illegal.
