Well, The Vacation is over and time to get serious about life again for a minute.
I had to get a new muffler due to the fact that my registration is up.
I did the install tonight and it went remarkably well. So well in fact, that I have that deep down feeling of dread you get when you just know something has gone awry.
I got through the whole install in less than 2 hrs and never got a speck of dirt or scale in my eyes. No busted or bleeding knuckles. I don't even recall bashing my head.
For those of you who have done their own exhaust work, you know exactly what I'm talking about!
I selected a Magnaflow 13254, 2" In/out, single offset, Brushed stainless, reversible
I ordered a new tail pipe and a new intermediate pipe. The intermediate pipe is back-ordered and didn't make it in time but the old one was still serviceable.
The old muffler and tail pipe almost fell out. Oddly the failure on the muffler was the seem between the inlet/outlet pipes and the end caps there was no notable rust anywhere on the body. I had to borrow a exhaust pipe cutter to separate the old muffler inlet from the intermediate pipe and that was the worst of the job. but it went smoothly.
I had the new muffler fitted in a jiffy.
The new tail pipe was clearly in danger as it jutted well into the departure plane.
The sawzall is one of those tools that you never know how bad you needed it until you have had one.
