Muffler/Exhaust

I have a 5.0 1990 Ford Bronco. What is the stock muffler inlet and outlet configuration is? According to Flowmaster it is a center inlet and a offset outlet. I never really checked my oem muffler, but it seems like it would be a center inlet and outlet, since it was a tube-shaped. Anyways, what made me think of this is, after my Flowmaster muffler was put on the exhaust pipe comes real close to my frame and the exhaust tip is closer to the body. Does anybody have a oem muffler and could tell me what the inlet and outlet configuration is? Any help is much appreciated.

Re: Muffler/Exhaust

The OEM Ford truck muffler, is a round unit. The inlet and outlet are on the side and not centered. It is also much longer then most aftermarkets. The center inlet/side outlet is as close as they get to fitting. The OEM's are about $100 around my way, so $30 for a muffler, some clamps and a short pipe is a much cheeper way to go. My system fit strange also, I just had to loosen the clamps and reposition everything so that it fit correctly.

SlowTarget, thanks for the backup. I thought I was the only person who had that problem. I'll try messing with the clamp and see what happens. Thanks again.

Re: Muffler/Exhaust

I had also called Flowmaster and had asked whether or not they could tell me the part number, if I had told them what kind of car/truck I drive. They said yes. After telling the guy over the telephone that I drive a Bronco, he told me to get a muffler which has a center inlet. He was dead wrong. When I received it from the mail, I could tell immediately that the muffler was really close and maybe wouldn't fit. I asked a exhaust mechanic if he could do it and he said I needed an muffler with an offset. I was pissed off of course. After returning that muffler I decided to get a Dynomax kit ($100) for the F150/Bronco. It included the muffler with the RIGHT inlet and outlet, clamps, screws and a pre-shaped exhaust pipe like the OEM exiting to the passenger side rear. I would recommend it, their was no thinking involved. Removing the old muffler was a bitch but installing the new one took an hour. email me at toughluc @ yahoo.com if you need the part number. I cannot find it now.
