I replaced it in about 30 minutes. One cut with the sawzall and then pulling it off the rubber mounts took 5 minutes. Getting the new one back up and in place took a few more. I needed to use a 2" to 2" exhaust pipe coupler because cutting the old muffler out took out too much pipe to get a good connection with the new one. I used one clamp from the muffler to the coupler and a second one right behind it from the couple to the pipe.

My only problem is that the exhaust pipe bends right before the muffler so the seal is poor with just the clamp. I am going to have my mechanic weld it there. Even if I left it alone at this point I would be happy having spent a total of $68 to install it myself instead of $190 at Midas. I can live with a little "hiss" from the poor seal for $120 in my pocket.
