Muffler Installation

Muffler Installation Services in Davie, FL

Making your car “better than the rest” requires you to take a step back and think about the various ways how to make your vehicle look, perform, and sound different from the pack. At G Exhaust, we value individuality just as much as you do, and we want to make sure you achieve your goal of being more than just another car on the road. Installing an aftermarket muffler is pretty much a no-brainer and hands down gives you the most bang for your buck. Not only does it enhance the engine’s sound, but it can also help alleviate backpressure issues giving your car more power, and lets you show off your style with upgraded tips made of steel, carbon fiber, titanium, or chrome. Most stock exhausts are inherently restrictive and reduce noise output, but we know that’s a sacrifice you’re not willing to make. Airflow is the name of the game, and much like your respiratory system, optimizing your engine’s “exhalation” leads to a better “inhalation” and is the perfect complement to an air intake. Commonly referred to as a “catback” exhaust, aftermarket mufflers have skyrocketed in popularity, with an enormous variety of models to choose from. Although muffler installation is not a DIY project, it is for the most part a straightforward procedure, given that you are simply upgrading the old exhaust, and not engaging in the more laborious duty that is necessary if the current system suffers from extensive corrosion or is full of holes. After taking your budget into consideration, determining your desired volume level, and preferred material finish, all that’s left is installing it. At G Exhaust, we pride ourselves on our expertise and guarantee we will get the job done perfectly every time.


Step 1:Choosing The Right One

When purchasing your muffler, make sure it is made to fit with your vehicle’s Make, Model, and Year. Different cars have different diameters piping, so you’ll want to make sure you get that right. We can custom fit to mismatched pipes if you buy one with an incorrect diameter, but it’s still not the recommend path. You’ll also need to answer this key question: is it loud enough for you? You may also want to remove the resonator (if your car has one to begin with). The internet is your friend here as there is an endless number of videos where both manufacturers and enthusiasts post clips of the exhaust system you might want to install.

Step 2:Preparation and Precautions

Safety is first and foremost, and we follow all the guidelines to make sure our workers and your vehicle are never placed in harm’s way. We make sure the car cooled down so that there is no risk of touching hot metal. Then we raise the car on our hydraulic lifts to get the right angle of attack. Becuase the exhaust system is made of metal components that break or rust, protecting the eyes from debris is necessary, so we make sure all our employees wear goggles and face-shields during welding.

Step 3:Removing the OEM Muffler

We determine which areas need to be unfasted and apply oil to ease the process. Next we unfasten the U-bolt and any additional bolts at the back of the exhaust. If it doesn’t come right out, we might have to loosen it with a pry bar. With the muffler detached from the main piping, we gently remove it out to protect the remaining system.

Step 4:Inserting the Aftermarket Muffler

Before we insert the new muffler into position, it’s important to check if the rubber straps are still useable. Then we slide the new muffler into place and refasten with a new U-bolt.

Step 5:Welding

Then to make sure everything is airtight and sealed, we spot weld the new muffler to the piping. We do this by welding in small areas around the clamped tubing. Welding heat is quite high, and prevents the tubing from warping and getting bent out of shape. With the spot welds in place, we go for the final seal and weld the entire union to stop any leaks from forming.

Step 6:Tail Pipes

The finishing touch is adding the end pipes to improve the visuals. There are many different diameters and materials to choose from, and we finish by screwing in the tail pipes to the muffler and lightly apply some weld to ensure the best fit possible.

Now go and enjoy your new exhaust, just don’t wake up the entire neighborhood!
