Muffler question

So I'm gonna put flowmasters on tomorrow. And wanted to know what the stock mufflers are made out of? Steel or aluminum? Can I scrap them for some cash?

I believe the cans are steel, not sure which grade. I had Flowmaster Super 44's welded on with the stock tips for awhile. Sounded pretty good with the stock cats. Don't think the stockers cut off are worth too much though.

You'll probably spend more on gas getting them to the scrape yard. But hey...it's worth a try. Let us know if you get anything for them.

Probably not worth much if they're steel. I got .66 cents a lb for aluminum rims the other day.

The cats might be worth some dough.
