Just the Muffler?

Hey guys,

I've poked around quite a bit regarding this and haven't seemed to find anything specific to my inquiry. I apologize if this information already exists elsewhere on the interwebs but has anyone just swapped out the stock muffler for a Flowmaster or something like that but left the rest of the exhaust, cats included, stock? Would it even be worth messing with without going at least full cat back? I'm not overly concerned with radical horse power gains.

I've seen threads where guys dump the cats and remove the muffler all together but sound wise its not quite my cup of tea. I think ultimately I'm looking for something not quite as obnoxious and raspy as a straight pipe but a little more beefy than stock. I usually just go Borla with most of my vehicles but I wasn't impressed with that oval thing they replace the exit pipes with.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, folks have just changed the muffler, even stopping by your local i.e. Midas for such changes

You are talking about where it comes out the rear of the truck right? If you want to switch the muffler no need to change anything just swap the muffler out

Well the oval comment was more in reference to if I decided to get a catback system and went with Borla. (Sorry conflicting thoughts).

Basically what I want to know is if I went with a hiflow performance muffler and left everything else bone stock, exhaust wise, would I notice a difference in sound? I can't seem to find any sound clips on Youtube for such a thing.

You will probably need 2 mufflers depending on what you go with. Midas near me was like $200 just to change out a muffler

I dont think you'd like the Borla setup if you dont like raspy sounding exhaust. That exhaust gives you a ton of crackle and pops and screams as the rev's build. It is basically a straight pipe exhaust with a resonator on each bank. I like the sound personally.
