New D90 Stock Tailpipe

I have a stock tailpipe that has never been used. For those of you that want to upgrade the sound/performance of your exhaust from the Cat-Back this is a econimical way to go about. I've personally used a stock tailpipe and a FlowMaster 50 series muffler combo and have been really pleased. $75 plus shipping from Zip 20165.

Exactly. Beats the price of Borla which is key. My buddy broke down and bought a Borla Cat-back system and paid $600, plus shipping and installation. Total cost was almost $800 beans. This is third of that silly cost, and sounds just as good.

I grew up in Waldorf and live in northern VA, BTW. Shipping of this can't be too much so let me know if you want it. If you do send me the shipping address. I'll mail it to you this weekend and you can send me a check after you get it.

did you just cut out the old muffler and weld the FM in place (either of you)?

Yep. Cut and reused the old flanges. I used Midas Muffler who charged me $140. Go to their website and print a coupon for $10 bucks off, BTW.

Hell if it's that simple, I may give it a whirl in the driveway. Know off hand what the dimensions of the FM were (2.5" sounds right for some reason.)

as i recall the stock muffler is approx 14'' and the FM 50 is 17'' so no extra pipe was necessary. i cut the exit end of the tailpipe just as it starets to turn left, about an inch from the hangining bracket. looks nice in a sawed-off shotgun kinda way and will nicely avoid future mud buildup.

sorry, Potomac Falls is west of Reston just off Route 7. zip 20165

Tony, I replaced my muffler when it rusted through at the outlet pipe. I was driving down a powerline road, checking out the new (to me) rig and after a bump or two, I noticed that the exhaust was sounding much more "open". Stopped, checked under the truck and found that the pipe had broken all the way off, then got caught on a rock, was pulled back and under the axle. Looked like a friggin hairpin! So, I took the truck, with a Summit bought FM50 to Meineke and had them weld a new pipe and the new muffler. The "pros" there didn't take into account any wheel articulation and now, with the massive flexing of my (near stock, haha) suspension, it gets pinched.

Clay, if this pipe isn't cut off at the back end, and Tony doesn't need it, I could come out this weekend and pick it up. Tony, if you need it or might need it, we can talk. It's not a terribly pressing thing for me.

The tailpipe I have for sale is not cut, it's new and never been used. However, another d90 from Arlington, Brian? has promised to pick it up tomorrow at 11:00. If things fall through for some reason I'll follow up with you guys on Monday.

Clay, BoyRico will be out to grab it tomorrow. Ken, he pulled much the same maneuver you did with his tail pipe, though embarssingly he did it on the access road to the cove. He already has a FM sitting in my garage, so he should be good to go with Clay's tail pipe provided he plies me with enough beer to weld it on for him.

Aside: finally got the right alternator today(3rd times a charm) so the truck should be running by noon tomorrow.
