Hey I've been reading here and there about exhausts and all but im kinda on a budget. The only thing i want to do is change the muffler. I was wondering if anybody has changed only the muffler for like a bolt on or something and i don't even know if it can be done?

W/e im all confused right now and im a noob so plz help. Thx

1) Yes it can be done
2) You can pick just about any muffler you want
3) It will need to be welded in by a mechanic/welder guy
4) Shouldn't cost you more than 15bux+ the cost of the muffler for someone to weld it on.
:) Your welcome

I have a trubendz and I hadnt considered adding a muffler to it, but what kind/how much of a change might that make? I probably wont do it though because I shouldnt cut it up ans I like the tip's subdued look .

Not sure how the trubendz sounds but adding a muffler should quiet it down somewhat or lower the tone depending on the muffler. Kind of like adding on a resonator. Since I've gone the muffler delete route, I'm thinking of adding a muffler more for looks than sound but reducing the tone would be welcome.

i really love to find some sort of oval can muffler that would fit in place of the stock muff location. then delete the cat and stock res and add either 1 magnaflow 12640 (6 inch round 30inch long) resonator or 2 magnaflow 5inch round resonators. and a nice double walled 3inch tip.
