Ford54191 I have gotten a muffler from my buddy, I needed to replace mine but got this one for cheap so planned on just replacing the stock one, is there any problems with this? Its just a 2.5" muffler, has two hangers...tell me what u think.

Stevick I have a Magnaflow muffler I replaced it with my center muffler and just left out the tail pipping all the way to the lunchbox so after my center magnaflow is nothing and honestly I really do like it it sounds really deep a little loud in the cabin, but not overwhelming you can still hold a conversation. If you want I'll post up some pictuers so you can see how I have mine setup.

GreySkorpion I have scuffed, primed and painted my luchbox flat black so it is much less noticeable. I hate the look of it, but I refuse to do the flexi pipe stuff that will just rust through in 6 months.

My options are a Flowmaster 40 series, a cherry bomb turbo, or a cherry bomb glass pack. I'm afraid it will sound like a Honda with the lunch box and aftermarket muffler attached. Any thoughts/opinions?
I have only one small resonator besides the manicat and its still pretty quiet ( nice low growl , no honda farts lol ) , when i did just the lunchbox delete it made it sound only a teeny bit louder and it was only at idle. Im sure if you keep the lunchbox with any muffler behind it wont be ricer/honda at all . Id go with the flowmaster 40 as well.

Btw im automatic too
