Exhaust/muffler DIY???

I just had my "service engine soon" light come on...I have noticed that my muffler has started making more noise, and I'm thinking it may be time to replace it...Is this something that can be done @ home, or would it just be easier to have a muffler shop do it? I'm hoping that my muffler going bad is what may have caused my SES light to come on, but I know I won't know for sure until I have the codes read.

Have the shop do it right. My muffler delete was $40 and I'm in love.

Yeah, I'm sure you're right...Doesn't your muffler delete make it really loud, though? I'm just afraid of getting ripped off by an exhaust place...They see BMW and see dollar signs....

Omg no man! I want mine louder but I refuse. Leave the resonators. Mine is a low straight solid magnaflow deep tone. It's not heavy. At all!
