Default I Thought Our Mufflars

lasted forever. Yesterday I got the mail and was walking up the driveway and saw exaust shooting out of the bottom of it. I looked and it was coming out of a hole the size of a quarter. Its cracking and peeling all over as well. Well, I guess its time for a Magniflow mufflar.

Well, our exhaust piping is all stainless, but the mufflers and catalytic aren't...

I can say one thing that has been said numerous times. Hearing a video online does NOT do it justice at all.

I can say however from personal experience that now that I have tried the magnaflow on my 1990 SSE, and heard it on numerous cars, including but not limited to Jim W'* Aurora ( I have a video of while I was driving it), Seth'* ( smellbird) 97 SSE ( he drove me 4+ hours back home when I blew my engine), and a member of my Malibu Club. They all sounded great. it had a nice deep tone to it.


I know you will hear this sounds better than that, but I have heard them first hand and I know what I am sticking with.

Yeah but it was concluded the difference is pretty minimal.

Flowmasters are geared more to sound, at the end of the day it really doesnt matter. I've always had Magnaflow on my cars and been totally satisfied with the gains and sound.

My V8 sounds so incredible I love it.
