vid with the exhaust installed



Problems i ran into

Couldnt fenable the stock pipe off, ended up cutting the section behind the muffler

The bolt that comes to secure the muffler to the bracket was too short, subbed in another one

And those rubber pieces that hold the pipe to the car always tend to suck, lots of wd40 was the key on those

Lowering the spare tire helped me to have some more room

Did you try a torch? I heat my exhaust components when they don't like to agree with me loosening them up. Glad you didn't post "OMG I got like 14 more mpg and 30 more hp" like so many people say.

In order to get the entire exhaust off from behind the catalytic convertor you have to lift the chassis away from the axle to get enough room.

Sounds a little throatier but we need outside videos. I have the same kit on my 3.0 btw.

Nice set up i think... Considering you have the 4 cylinder, i personally wouldn't want anything louder, other wise it will sound ricey.. I say keep that, or if not switch to magnaflow.

Are you looking for a deep and loud sound out of it? I met up with SouthernMudSlinger a while back and listened to his 2.3 w/ the Flowmaster 40 or Super 40 and it actually sounded real good, not ricey at all.

ok so i found a guy on craigslist selling a flowmaster 40 original

the dimensions on it are
In/Out: 2-1/2''
4" Thick x 9.75"
13" Case Length - 19" Overall Length


the dimensions on the dynomax muffler i have are
In/Out: 2-1/2''
Muffler Size: 4-1/2'' x 9-3/4''
20" case legnth - 25 1/5" overall legnth

so the flowmaster is shorter which means my dynomax pipes wont bolt up to it?

ARGGGGGGGGGGGGH this is frustrating.

you could always just take it to a muffler shop and have them do it.. shouldn't cost a whole lot for them to cut some of the pipe..

i think im gonna keep this setup for a while. Im unhappy with the sound, but my gas miles have shot up 2mpg like everyone else said ... got 25 mpg on flat highway doing 70, and got 23 going up to the snow today.

I havent seen over 22 - 23ish in a while, and last time i went to the snow it got 19 lol
