Glad to see you got it sorted out! Good thinking posting the name of the shop for others in the future too!

I just had a Magnaflow attached to a new OEM tailpipe from LR...the combo is great...it is not loud (not wimpy either)...different than the original LR muffler...not weak...but I can hear myself think...but it does sound nice...not nearly as loud as the borla stuff...suits my needs.

The exhaust on my defender is in pretty poor shape too. The whole thing is welded together with no flange between the y pipe and the intermediate pipe. In addition, there is nothing after the resenoator (it has all been removed). The exhaust just blows onto the rear exle. Everything looks to be original or at least really old.



My question is: I have a '91 RRC in PA that I would like to drive out to CO and part out in early summer. It has a full NRP exhaust. Will the Y pipe from this truck fit the 90. I am pretty certain that it is the same part, but I am looking for confirmation...

It also has a front skid plate from Rovers North. Are the frame rails the same width on the 90 and the RRC? If so, then that should fit too.

Thanks

I just had a Magnaflow put on my truck since my stocker let go at the outlet. Its close to stock but definately has a lot more grunt but not bothersome at highway speeds. I reccomend highly.

Wanted to get the groups opinion on a quote I have from a local performance shop in Denver.
Defender 110 system
Stainless Steel 409
14 Guage., 2.5 Inch pipe
Mild steel welding at joints, zinc paint coated for rust proofing
Magnaflow SS Muffler to replace first muffler
Delete second muffler
Same bends as stock, replicating stock hanging points.
400.00 installed

Am I missing anything here?
How loud will it be if there is someone that has done this?
If its too loud, then would I add a smaller "second" muffler back into the mix?

Thanks!

that's a good price, it won't be too loud.

Price seems acceptable for a custom stainless system. Certainly less expensive than a Borla. Mandrel bent pipes would be a plus.

The Magnaflow is great, not too loud, but a nice improvement over stock. I don't have experience with a 110, but from a sound perspective, I don't think you'd find it necessary to run a second muffler. The sound is perfect on my 90 SW, IMHO.

To satisfy my primal purist instincts, I did have the shop install stock flanges on the Magnaflow, so that if I ever wanted to put the stock LR muffler back on, it's just a simple bolt on install.

I checked and it will be depression bends, using stock flange so I can go back into the OEM Y pipe at later date. THey also make sure the Magnaflow (Stainless) lines up with the stock heat shield.
Will try to post pics when complete. Using AA Performance Muffler, Jeff Corwin said they did good work! Thanks for the confirmations.

I used House of Mufflers in Denver for a complete stainless system on my RRC and can't say enough good things about the work. The increase in performance was suprisingly dramatic and completely exceeded my expectations.
Even though the shop website looks like it's geared more towards boy racer cars, the owner is a wheeler and did a great job routing the pipes up and out of harms way. I think it was around $900 and worth every penny.
I'm planning to use them again for my DD Passat W8's exhaust to get a little more growl out of the 8cyl

Steve - I have Scott's work on my truck too. They do great work at very reasonable prices. If you still have droning, the muffler comes in 14" and 18" lengths. Mark

The 18" is as quiet as stock I have this on the RRC. I have the shorter version on my Defender, the shorter version sounds good.

Exhaust Mount Photo

I just finished installing a Borla system on Junior and I have a feeling that my rear tailpipe hanger is bent, the one on the truck, not the exhaust. Keep in mind my previous tailpipe rusted off on the trial and wrapped itself around the axle. I think that mishap is what caused the mount to appear twisted. Does anyone have or would be willing to take a photo of that area on their truck? I just need a little looksy.

Also, the rubber part that hangs the exhaust is ripped and I was wondering if I can get that at Napa or someplace local?

Alex
