Hey all.

Went to a "performance muffler" shop and they're telling me if I swap the stock muffler to a Magnaflow 22" muffler, I'll get good HP and torque gains. No change in the other piping mind you, just the muffler. I'm a little skeptical.

Any opinions?

That's what I'm about to do ... the reason I'm about to do it though is for the sound. I do believe that it would help with HP and TQ since you are helping airflow but not messing with piping diameter. Just my .02 cents!!

That looks like a Flowmaster to me ... no Magnaflow looks like that.

Just getting the muffler and removing the resonator. So it should give me a few ponies and sound much better.

Newbie first post. I pick up my 01' 430 Sport tomorrow from the dealer. They sold it new and it had all its scheduled maintenence.

Please let us know how your muffler turns out. I would love to hear a little rumble from my V-8. Has anyone hollowed out the dual cats or removed them altogether? Just wondered if it had been done?

Look forward to learning from this site!!!![^]

Hey Kirill,

WHY do this at all???

From your musings above it seems like you already have some reservations.

Any you have a perfectly nice C300.

As the saying goes: 'If it aint broke don't fix it' :)

ps.

This section of the Forum is for the ML (W163).

The factory ML muffler looks huge. Something half the size would shed some weight.

How much extra HP are we talking 10HP? Also, are we talking about a performance "muffler" or a free flowing muffler? You know the muffler you can see right through. like a glass pack. That would really be loud. :)

no way changing the muffler will net 10HP.. 2-3hp max. I bet timing and ecu mapped for 93-94 octane fuel is the only way to get 10-15hp out of a NA engine like this.
