Final Choice: FLOWMASTER 50 Series DELTA SS

Dave, Gotcha...
Well, I ended up at a place called 'Mighty Muffler' where the owner, Mel, was the only one who took the time to answer a few simple questions over the phone and seemed to be fairly knowledgeable with mufflers, etc...
I had him install a FlowMaster 50 Series Delta Stainless Steel on the D90, along with a custom aluminized tailpipe and a stainless steel tip for about $250. A little more than I wanted to spend, but not the $500+ I was originally planning.

Impression so far... nice idle, a little louder than I wanted speeding up out of 3rd gear... not bad ... The guy said if I didn't like it he'd switch it out no problem.

Thanks again to everyone...!!!

Nicholas

Final Impression of FlowMaster Delta

This muffler sucks the big one.

I ordered a OEM one from Mohammed at RoverCity today for $250, and be done with it.

I can't believe any of you guys like the sound of the FlowMaster, and the 50 Series delta is supposed to be quieter than the 40 because of the added 'chevrons'..... the muffler sounds like a tin can, and backfires beyond belief, and does NOT sound good when increasing speed
...
I'm getting the thing off Monday when I get back in town from NJ and my new Land Rover muffler has arrived.

ugh...

Nicholas

Nicholas, real sorry to hear about that. I think you got some pretty impartial advice, but sorry that it didn't work out for you. I have that muffler, except not stainless, and have been pretty happy with it for over a year. Hope you enjoy the stock muffler better!
