All these mufflers have filters inside them to filter out the excessive CO2, fumes etc.

How much does it cost for the exhaust


Most after-market exhaust companies offer four types of components:
  1. Cat-back exhaust systems - anywhere from $300 to $1200 - The final cost will depend on steel thickness and type, as well as muffler quality.
  2. Axle-back exhaust systems - same as above
  3. High performance mufflers - $75-$300 - The quality of the muffler's materials inside, as well as the type of steel and thickness used, impact the final price.
  4. Exhaust system tips - $25-$150 per tip - Almost all cat-back or axle-back systems include a quality exhaust tip. However, if you're building your own system, you can purchase an exhaust tip to "dress up" your factory pipe.
The schematic below shows where the "cat" (a.k.a. catalytic converter) is in relation to the engine. While many companies sell high-performance catalytic converters, they are fairly expensive and usually don't restrict exhaust flow too much, so we're not going to worry about them here.
alt="Exhaust system schematic with notes">

This is a stylized schematic of an exhaust system.
On some vehicles, the muffler is mounted behind the rear axle. In this case, exhaust manufacturers sell "axle-back" systems. The only difference between a cat-back and an axle-back exhaust is the length of tubing - both include a new muffler. Therefore, there's not a lot of cost difference between the two. Both cat-back and axle-back systems include tubing, a muffler(s), and then all the hardware needed to mount the new system in place of the factory system. Most of the time, these systems use the factory exhaust hangers to make install as easy as possible.
Since a high-performance muffler is a part of a cat-back or axle-back exhaust system, buying a muffler by itself is usually the least expensive option in terms of parts cost. Keep in mind, however, that mufflers have higher labor costs. They're not necessarily less expensive by the time all the labor costs have been accounted for.
Muffler Only vs. Cat-back or Axle-back The biggest advantage in purchasing a full cat-back or axle-back system is that install is really simple. Many of these systems can be installed at home with basic tools. Conversely, installing a muffler at home may not be so simple - cutting and welding may be required. What's more, some after market mufflers require significant re-routing of your stock exhaust tubing...and that can get expensive very quickly.
The other advantage in a full cat-back or axle-back system is that they are often tuned to your specific vehicle and the included muffler(s). All things being equal, a cat-back or axle-back system will perform slightly better than a muffler only.
Stainless Steel vs Aluminized or Galvanized Steel The main difference between a stainless steel exhaust system and an aluminized or galvanized system is durability. Stainless systems will last a lifetime due to their ability to resist corrosion, with 200 300 series stainless systems being more resistant than 300 200 series systems (only the difference is slight). Some manufacturers will try and convince you that one type of stainless system (200, 300, or 400) has better sound quality than another, but there's no evidence we're aware of to support these claims. In fact, stainless steel tends to be slightly thinner than aluminizied steel. If anything, an aluminized system may have better sound quality.
Having said that, the muffler itself is the biggest factor in sound. The steel used in the system isn't as important as some make it out to be (at least in terms of sound quality).
When it comes to choosing between stainless and aluminized systems, it's important to consider your local environment. If you live in an area where corrosion risks are high (such as cold-weather areas that use salt to de-ice roadways), stainless steel may be a reasonable upgrade because it will resist rust. On the other hand, if your local environment is dry and the corrosion risks are low, the only reason to buy a stainless system is for looks.
Exhaust Tips There are probably thousands of different exhaust system tips available. Generally speaking, you get what you pay for. Stainless steel tips are very resistant to corrosion, but they don't shine up as nicely as chrome. Also, stainless steel tips are more likely to "blue", or change color during use. Titanium is also a material used to make exhaust tips - it's incredibly corrosion resistant, but just like stainless it's prone to blue during use. If you like the blue coloring, titanium is probably your best choice. If you want the shiny look, chrome is the way to go. If you want a tip that you can shine up every once in a while - but that's also resistant to the elements - stainless is a smart choice.
Exhaust System Labor Costs If you purchase a cat-back or axle-back exhaust system, labor costs are often very low. These systems bolt-on and use the existing factory hangers. In fact, many performance shops will install a cat-back exhaust system free of charge if you purchase it directly from them.
If you decide you want to purchase a muffler only, you'll want to get an install estimate from your local exhaust shop BEFORE you buy that muffler. Sometimes, installation is very straightforward and the cost is as little as $100. Other times, fabrication is required and the cost can be as high as $300 (or more). If the installation requires a lot of fabrication, you may be better off buying a cat-back or axle-back system instead.

Cutting out while driving with a bad smell from exhaust


Bad smell from exhaust usually mean your cat-converter has given up. Have you noticed a massive increase in fuel consumption too?

Ford expedtion makeing loud dryer noise


Hard to discern what you mean by dryer noise since you didn't say if it was coming from the engine, exhaust, inside or outside the vehicle. But I'm going to put my experience on a clogged catalytic converter. The pressure in the exhaust will back up into the engine and cause a very annoying wind noise. Like the sound of air from a high pressure tank being released. You local muffler shop will usually do a temperature check on the cats for a low fee or even free.

I have a 1996 Grand Marquis GS and I want to know if I remove my Muffler will that give it a Dual sound im looking for?


I have a 96 Mark VIII with the DOHC 4.6, and one 'performance' mod done by a lot of Mark owners is to chop off the two rear mufflers leaving intact the 'third cat' whick is really a resonator. On cars that have had this done, they sound great-but there is kind of a 'drone' at cruising speeds which might be objectionable to some drivers or occupants. These cars have a '2 into 1 into 2' exhaust, meaning the two pipes that come out of the engine anr y-ed into one, then split into two again out back with small mufflers (they are 40 lbs though!)-your design is different, and you have a 16 valve engine. I would think your's would be much louder, so you might just chop off the OEM muffler first and drive it around for a few days to see if you like it-if you decide it is not what you wanted, there are a lot of good aftermarket mufflers that you probably would like more-go onto the mustang forums and see what those guys like with their 4.6 SOHC's.

I can't see your exhaust system, but I do recommend that you have them show you the "why" of it. Generally the front pipe and the cat last a long time and generally don't need to be replaced very often. If the flanges are rusted and have failed there are "wrap around" replacements that can be used without pipe replacement. Most common is to change everything from the cat back. As I said, have them actually show you what is wrong...or take it to another shop and without telling them the original findings, have them look at it!!! Since there is very little involved except a visual inspection, most shops will not charge or will charge very little for this.

sounds like the manifold gasket is bad, or the exhaust pipe coming from the manifold head was not properly seated. Got back to auto zone and get a repair/maintence manual for your car , and it should help you get the manifold head gasket/muffler assembly back together.

I have a 1988 ford mustang 5.0 efi. I want to put an after market exhaust on it, How do I put my O2 sensors on it?


The O2 sensors are mounted into the headers. If by aftermarket exhaust you mean a cat-back exhaust system with midpipes and mufflers, then the O2 sensors are a non-issue - they won't be touched. If you are doing cat-back, headers, and maybe high-flow cats, the O2 sensors will just screw directly into the new headers - they'll be set up to receive them.

I have a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer,the check engine light is on and is now blinking,the car idles high,and the engine is loud,you can hear a put-put sound from the muffler,and a ticking sound when i turn it...


If the check engine light is flashing it means you have a serious miss-fire that may cause damage to catalytic converters. It is not recommended to continue to drive it in this case. Catalytic converters are very,very expensive.
Recommend to have it towed to a repair shop for evaluation.
