I'm going to need a new muffler and thinking of either the Walker Quiet-Flow SS or Sound FX muffler. The Quiet-Flow SS has a life time warranty and is stainless steel and the Sound FX has a 1 year warranty and is aluminized which I have no idea what they mean by this. If anyone is using or has used one of these Walker mufflers, can you tell how good it is. Also how does the life time warranty work?

Rickorino and Doug D,

Yeah I hate doing muffler work over and over again. I put a Walker steel muffler about 3-4 years ago and it is now sounding loud when accelerating. The last time I check under that area it looks like it is starting to fail as it's rusting and the weep hole shows quite a bit of it. I'm thinking of stainless steel because in the long run I'll probably save more money doing the job once instead of every 3 to 4 years.


Aluminized means it has a coating on it to prevent the steel from rusting. Steel mufflers don't last as long as the SS ones, I got well under 20k on my last one. The outer casing cracked along the weld line at some point during the winter and let road salt get inside, which rotted out the interior, which looked like mild steel. Come to think of it, I believe it was a Walker.
Was it an aluminized steel or a stainless steel muffler? Also should I stick with the Walker brand?
