The muffler is in...

Well it's all back together and running great. Last nights problem with the alt./fan have been remedied. This morning I finished the outlet bends, trial fitted about a dozen times, and installed the tips. The ones I bought with the magnaflo muffler didn't show up with the muffler. So, I went to the local Redneck-Auto and found a pair of very nice looking Stainless Steel tips in the "ricer" section. No kidding. And they are EXACTLY what I was looking for. And the really cool part? ...only $6.99 a piece.

Here is a test fit shot before the outlets were installed:



Then after marking and removing everything again, it went over to the bench for more welding. I am not really happy with the flux-core wire. I can't get it to pool and as a result, can hardly get a decent looking bead going. So, please don't laugh at the welding work.

Here is a shot of it on the bench after the tips were installed:



And a close up of my $6.99 SS tip



And another:



And a happy Porsche owner:



And the results:

COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's the first time I got to see that car Lee...
SHWEEEEEEEEEEEEET!
Why is the pipe layout different from mine? Are those SSI's?

I can't wait to get mine going again Once I do I may have to go to scruffy the duck to wash it for me. Unless we get a warm day this Feb. My car is so filthy from all the work I've done on it and around it in that garage... yuck cough cough hack cough cough...
Damn I might have to put the flowmaster back on...

It is not as loud as I was thinking it would be. Which is nice. I can remember the flowmaster on my old SC shaking the wall of the kitchen when I fired it up in the mornings. I can hardly detect any resonance with this pipe. There may be a "smidge" (if that is an acceptable word for describing muffler noise) of resonance at about 2500 rpm, but not much at all. Not anything compared to the old Frankenmuffler.

If anyone wants to hear a short sound clip, I just need someone who is willing to host a short mpeg to email me.

Of course... it just isn't the same without being under a load. Just goosing the throttle doesn't sound as good as when you punch it at 4K after leaving an intersection.

MIke it is a different layout due to the SSI's. It was actually a bit more complicated this way.

NO worries... my car is filthy too. And all the car washes are closed. Even the indoor ones!

Leland, did you use the Magnaflow 11386? Do you still have the model number laying around anywhere?

Mike, this is the frankenmuffler. Custom exhaust system (A love story.

Not the Flowmaster on your car.



I'm too cheap and there aren't any places around here that can do ceramic coating.

Oh well.

Thank you, I think so too.
I am going to keep the factory style muffler just in case I need it in the future.

Sadly, Frankenmuffler had to be scraped for parts.


Total cost:

$75.00 for the Magnaflo dual in dual out

$36.00 for three pieces of mandrel bends (Two J bends and one U bend)

$3.65 El-cheapo exhaust hanger banding from local hardware store

$14.00 Two Stainless steel exhaust tips

$15.00 Two 2 hole exhaust flanges

$36.00 Argon bottle refill


TOTAL: Less than $180.00

(Note: this does not include the amount I spent on the original frankenmuffler... for that goof, please add another $65.00)

I wouldn't think you need to spell it out for them.........considering the size of the round leaning against the side, I'd think they'd get the idea......

Great job on the muffler, one would only hope it improves the "masculine" image of your car, considering it's rather coloured past.....
