No problem, like new is much cheaper though. Either way, I'd get a Magnaflow muffler or entire kit.

What do you plan to get? Just the muffler or entire kit?

No, it's up to you depending on what you want.

The Magnaflow kit is 100% stainless and includes the muffler, pipes, tips, and clamps. The downside is cost as the kits are roughly $600. The upside is that the kit can be installed yourself.

The muffler alone is about $175, but then you have to have the pipes bent and buy tips. Although this means the system is welded, not clamped. The downside is that your pipes probably won't be stainless. A custom stainless set-up is outrageous. In the end, you will probably have about $300 to $350 invested going this route.

hm....well i dunno about stainless steel all the way down haha, the bottom is not the best looking. mostly rusty and dirty looking haha. so i dont know how that would look haha, but i think friends have it where just basic pipes and all then tips put on, probably because its cheaper. think it cost a friend like 100-150 bucks for them to do the install and new piping. he supplied his own muffler though.

EDIT:80 series is the only one im seeing with the dual i think....then again i dunno wtf im looking for
80 series was designed for F-bodies. It has an inlet and outlet on the same side due to clearance issues. The shop here charges $350 I believe for the muffler, pipe, tips, and labor. I purchased my Flowmaster and tips off Ebay and had the the shop install. Muffler was $60ish and the tips were new but scratched. They only cost me $20 for 3'' angle cut. Shop charged me $150 to put it on so I had less than $250.

My 98 had a 3.0 auto b4 I did 5.0 swap and I was told by countless mechanics that ford v6 likes backpressure to run better? Was told by muffler shop if I wanted it louder he would gladly put duals on it, but I better be ready to lose power. the 5.0 runs pretty goid and I have dual glass packs running to rear diff but at certain speeds she doesn't sound all that great, just loud. I might put tailpipes on it to see if that helps.
