Exclamation "How to" (request) install a muffler

Hey guys I was readirng through all the how toos, lots on there, cool stuff, but I did notice that there is no how to install a new muffler. Some of you know how to do it, but for those of us who are oblivious, it would help. Anyone changing their exhaust soon (I know there will be some eventually) please take pictures and write up a "how to" perhpas one for a single muffler and one for a muffler with a single in and two outs (such as where do you pass the piping for it to come out the driver's side as well? thanks any write yup with pics would appreciated.

If there needs to be a how to. Basically you just remove the stock exhaust and put the new one on. It may need an extending pipe depending on the muffler. Then just weld and if you want it out the side just cut and weld out the side. ( I have it out the side). But I did mine myself with my buddy.

Did you have to cut off the oem muffler before putting on the new one?

lol you forgot a step or two lol


On a serious note, how much (an estimate) would it cost to have this installed and have it coming behind both rear wheels, am I looking at a small fortune?

for that? you're looking at around $350-$400 total.. thats with pipe bent, welded, muffler and tips. at least thats what the average is around here. i paid $300 for a y-pipe, and duals run out the back at 45 degree angles behind the rear tires.
