Default Aftermarket muffler with stock piping?

I just bought a magnaflow muffler. I was wondering if it will be okay if I just cut off my stock muffler and weld on the Magnaflow muffler using the stock piping. I don't plan on doing custom piping until I swap in a motor in November. So will it sound funny and will there be any problem with fitment? Here's a pic of the muffler. It's has a 2.25" inlet with a 2.5" internal core.

I'm not really looking for any hp gains with my stock motor. I just wanted to know if it would sound alright and if it would fit.

Everything should be fine if you just weld it onto your stock piping. You probably won't see too much of a performance gain though. I would just wait until you swap your motor in and save yourself some labor.

Don't just weld on a muffler..... that is reffered to as "rice" around these parts.

a buddy of mine did this before he swapped too...it sounded nice, b/c he took out the resonator which made it deep not high pitched and farty...

Very doubtful. One, he'll be using very restrictive stock piping, and two, he's going to have that fat stock resonator. It'll probably be somewhat deep and pretty quiet. I ran a straight-through on my old Accord with stock piping, and you could hardly tell I even had an exhaust. It was fairly noticeable inside but not so much outside. Unless other drivers were behind me or near a rear quarter panel, they wouldn't be able to tell I had a muffler based on the sound. The tone was okay--nice deep rumble, nothing outrageous or anything.

haha,
I did that, you can't even hear it.

I had the muffler lying around from my old civic project and needed a new one on my hatch now (it just kinda fell off).

It has a little tone to it, but I wasn't concerned about that, I just needed a new muffler. I purposely just used some clamps, and muffler bandage because I want to use it when I put the LS in this car. I didn't make it ghetto as hell either, I made it so there were no leaks, but made it removeable too.

I have a few ricer friends that bolted on just a muffler. They all sound like angry bees in a coffee can. But, to each their own.
