Need to replace muffler on 1999 Alure

Our 1999 Allure's muffler is rusted out and needs to be replaced. No one in our area has any idea what muffler is needed. Has anyone replaced one and if so, can you let me know the make and model number? Thanks

I think you need to list the engine you have along with the model number of your MH. The chassis will help to.

Call Country Coach with your coach number and engine number.

If it will fit, I've been pleased with he Aeroturbine XL5050. That was on an 04 Allure with ISL. I did first validate the size of our piping, and bought the appropriate 5" diameter unit.

On the road, don't hear it, except when going thru tunnels, are when the exhaust is pointed towards retaining wall, like an onramp to a freeway. In idle out of campground mode, if louder at all, very minimal.

More power, better MPG? I think much depends upon the coach they are installed in. If the back end had higher back pressure with the OEM muffler and piping - then sure, the turbo should spool faster and yield some performance improvement. MPG? Suppose the same comment. On my rig, IMO, I think the OEM muffler was properly sized for our engine. So not a push you back into your seats difference! It probably has better breathing then the OEM, and thus probably helps the engine do it's thing. No long term difference in MPG.

Well built, and SS should last a long time...

Other mufflers are popular too, but this was on a good sale price when I got it, so it was not too painful.

Best of luck to you,
Smitty

The coach information is as follows:

40' CHSG "Chandler" Allure
Chassis VIN 4U7A5EJ11X1101051
Engine Serial # 45802174 8.3 Liter ISL 330 hp
CCI Serial # 30376

I contacted Country Coach prior to this and their reply was: Muffler is #15452, cost is $369.34, about a week to get and stainless exhaust tip w/rolled edge is #22914, cost is $200.00, and in stock.

This seemed a bit high to me at the time but maybe not. I have read other posts regarding the price of various mufflers and they seem a lot cheaper. I don't know if these are OEM or not. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I also have a cracked front brake plastic cap that is leaking fluid and need to order one of those.

Thanks for the replys,

Hoot

Hoot, you have an ISC motor. The mufflers are not OEM to Country Coach. Somewhere on the muffler is the manufacturer name. Use the name and part# to find a replacement on line. The stainless steel exhaust tip was made by a local Junction City machine shop for CC

Thanks Mike, I checked out the RyderFleet link and the size and shape are exactly the same as the existing muffler. I ordered it yesterday and await its arrival. Thanks again,

Thanks again Mike, I received the muffler from RyderFleet and its perfect. Do you know where I can find the mounting straps and connecting clamps for the Allure setup?

After you remove the old muffler. Remove the parts that you want to replace, and most trucking muffler shops will be able to set you up. Suspect NAPA would too. Just take the old parts with you, and let them poke around!

Best of luck,
Smitty
