Crap. Not what I wanted for 2017.

Post by Jack Russell Racing » Sat Dec 31, 2016 3:43 pm

Not what I wanted for New Years Eve. The back side of my muffler just exploded whilst trying to start the truck tonight. Big huge backfire (my ears are still ringing) and the whole back of the muffler is buckled and peeled off.

Ugggg.

Bad news? The muffler is well and fully blown to bits -- and driving seems both noisy and dangerous to my lungs. Good news? Scott @ EI has already booked an outbound shipment with a new muffler and gaskets. :)

All that's left is to start soaking my nuts and gently massaging them.

I just ordered up one of their SS mufflers myself.

Whoo hoo! Now that was a whole steaming pile of fun. Passenger side upper muffler bolt is a cherry to remove, turning the wrench a whole 1/5000 of a turn at a time.

All done. Perfect fit. Thank you Scott @ EI !
