would this be okay for exhaust?

so i was at a auto dismantling yard today and i came across a mustang GT with a cat back exhaust and some 40s on it all i would need is the h pipe adapter. but on the passenger side the muffler has some dents on it and also where it connects from the muffler to the flow tube towards the front of the car the welding is a little cracked

i wish i could have taken a photo to show you guys maybe ill go back and take some

so my question is is it okay to buy the muffler with the dents and can that crack be re welded? or can that muffler be cut off and replaced with a new one?

Re: would this be okay for exhaust?

if the tail pipes are ok then i'd just unbolt the tails from the mufflers (or cut them off if they were welded to the new mufflers) then buy two mufflers that are in better condition..go to an exhaust shop and tell them to install it all. they'll cut the y pipe off...make some flow tubes and put it all in there

One muffler is in good condition and ones not

So if i cut it off they would still be able to put a new muffler where it was? and if yeah where would be a good point to cut at?

yes they can weld in a new muffler like nothing happened if you cut out the old one...just cut the tail pipes off about 2 inches away from the old muffler. the shop will either be able to expand it there to weld to the new muffler or add in a few inches of tubing to fill the space. simple and easy...if you were near TN i'd just make you a deal on some of the tail pipes i keep down in my garage for those just in case situations lol

well seeing how most shops charge $50 a tail pipe for new tubing (in TN i can't even imagine the markup in cali) so $2.50 a foot is a great deal on good tubing...the mufflers are decent too if they aren't rusted out on the inside

How would you be able to tell if they are rusted out in the inside?

when you cut them from the flow tubes shake the crap out of the mufflers and see if anything comes out the outlet

Nevermind imma get the pipes and just the one flowmaster 40 thats in good condition. I just bought my car a while ago and i looked under it for the first time and realized i have a flow master 40 on my single exhaust.... WIN.

All i need is a h pipe and a shop to weld it!

I bought new cats and SLP loud mouth exhaust from AM and it was 100% worth the money.
