    Will putting a new flowmaster muffler in trigger the check engine light? I'm only swapping the old muffler for a new flowmaster muffler not the whole exhaust system. Its an 09 4.0l V6 double cab. At the garage I stopped by at the guy told me changing mufflers would trigger the check engine light and cause other problems. Is this correct?

    Magnaflow muffler, TRD CAI.
    No the only way it will throw a code is if you remove emission parts from your exhaust system and the muffler is not an emission part.

    So I should have no problems with the engine running lean and triggering the light?
