Default Magnaflow

Just got my magnaflow installed. Sounds really good. Not sure if it'* increased performance quite yet(need to do some field testing). The guys at Midas were very excited about it, almost more than I was!

Sorry but I have no way of recording .WAV files so I'm not sure how I can share the sound with you all.

Glad you got it. I assume it'* the same one I have. I'm sure your tips help quiet the sound a bit too. I'll be taking my res out soon, and getting a hi-flow CAT. And some tips like you. I can't wait.

Mine sounds great. At idle, on a cold start it sounds better than my parents 2003 Vette (IMO). A very nice low grumble! But it gets quieter when it warms up. The resonator definitely quiets it down. At low rpms, going about 20-40, the sound is noticeable. At HWY speeds it isn't.

I still have to let someone else drive it so I can hear exactly what it sounds like outside the car...but I have to find someone I trust to drive my car. My brother therefore is out of the question.

I don't have a recording yet. Once I get a dig. camera will record it. But I'm very happy with it, and I don't even have my Hi-flow CAT yet

I'm thinking of getting a glasspack for my resonator replacement, i want something quiet but still there. Also emissions are ***'* here. You can deffinately tell its diff than stock thought right? Exhaust is such a touchy issue! It'* great lol, i love it.
