Question type: Car Customization

I have a 3.9 the muffler is bad.  since I have to change it anyway, any suggestions for something that might help the gas mileage would be appreciated.  I wouldn't balk at it being a little louder than stock as long as it was mellow.

a freer flowing exhaust would help gas mileage, because the amount of air the engine can "breath" in is directly related to the amount that it can remove through the exhaust. but to actually increase mileage by modifying the exhaust would meen high flow manifolds, high flow cats, and what not. i would just get another OEM muffler if you ask me

this is correct. a muffler wont do anything to improve mileage. you will need to do the whole works to make a difference. just replace is with oem unless you like the sound of a certain muffler.
