finally the flowmaster is gone!

well, the flowmaster was starting to get annoying because people in my apt complex were *****ing about loud cars, and when i stay late at people houses it always wakes everyone up.

anyways..

me and my dad cut eveything off today and put on a muffler that was laying around from a mustang.

you can see how bad the old flange was in the one picture, it was leaking and about to fall apart.

i still have to get a tip for the exhaust, so it looks kinda funky right now.

over all, its really quiet at idle, but it gets louder at WOT.

I'm REALLY glad that I don't live up north, because I wouldn't be able to live with a rusty undercarriage. The underside of my truck is so clean, I could almost eat off of it.

Good for you....

If you keep up on it though, it wont rust very quick. Hell, my 2004 had 93,000 miles on it when I sold it and there was almost no rust at all....

thanks, its the perfect length also.

idk what way i want the angle to be, the tip is slant cut at the end.

i might make it so its flat with the side of the truck but im thinking it will look best if i just make it normal.
