magnaflow muffler and lunchbox delete only 2.0?

I am looking at getting a Magnaflow muffler from autoanything.com and just hopefully bolting in right in place of the stock muffler. I've searched and searched and cannot find anyone w/ that set up. Most people have a header, cams, 3'' mid pipe etc.

I currently have about 18'' worth of 2.25'' stainless pipe where the old "lunch box" used to be but everything else exhaust wise is stock.

Has anyone just bolted on a "bullet" style magna flow muffler in place of the stock one w/ the lunchbox delete that has a 2.0l duratec? I'm doing this purely for a little extra sound but don't want too much..

Cool. Yeah I am going to be buying one here pretty soon. Can you give me your opinion on which one of these would work best? Obviously I need a one in one out but I'm not sure if I would need an offset one or center, and also not sure which would be best an oval or round? Finally, is this a bolt on or weld in place situation?

You'll need a center in/out round muffler to fit behind your flex. If your trying to do this on the cheap= hit up your muffler shop. If you want a desent system get a fwerk's system. It bolts on easy, is 2.5'' mandrell bent pipes, & you install it & forget it & move on to other mods. You can get a magna-flow muffler & have a muffler shop weld it on for you, if thats all your going to do. Its all what your trying to do. Just do it once & be done w/ it. Pay me now or pay me later= Same thing, Add a magna-flow muffler on your stock exhaust system now & later on your redoing it.

I ordered magnaflow mufflers through my company and then had an exhaust shop custom weld it all up. I think it ran me just under $500 for parts and labor.

You make some very good points. I will not be doing anything else exhausts wise to the car though. I bought the car just as a daily driver and didn't plan on doing any mods to it but I have done the stealth CAI and the lunchbox delete and looking to get this muffler but I won't be spending the money for a performance cat back exhaust. I have a 2012 Mustang GT that all my money is locked up in mod wise. It would be cool to mod the Foci too but I just don't have the money to make it fast so I wanted to throw a muffler on there for a little sound to make it a little more fun to drive. I think around 100k miles when I would swap shocks, I'm going to purchase either the Ford or Eibach Pro lowering springs and shocks but nothing else exhaust wise.

Thanks for your input. I haven't been under the car specifically to look at the exhaust set up but would you recommend welding in this muffler in place of the "muffler" that is on there now. I think some call it a 2nd cat (basically right under the front seat). Or are you saying I should have them keep that in and weld in behind that? Keep in mind the lunchbox is gone...

Hit up a muffler shop & see if they can remove the small converter after the flex & the muffler & have them add a bullet or similar there, if all your wanting is a little tone. For springs & dampers= M-18000-zx3B for dampers & M-5560-ZXM1 for 1.5'' drop springs. That'll make it more fun to drive. Hit up Steve at Toulsey Ford, for these & your frpp's for your Mustang.
