Magnaflow Cat back cut out ?

I already ordered a Maganaflow catback for the wife. I see most people install the tips just under the rear bumper. Any reason beyond cutting the bumper that I couldnt do the cutouts like a GT and raise them up a bit?

all v6 exhausts will sound worse compared to idle up top~ it just how it is. The new 05+ though do sound pretty good compared to the 3.8.

You haven't ever heard any good 3.8s then.

Re: Magnaflow Cat back cut out ?

when i had my v6 i just went with some magnaflow catbacks at idle it was a real quiet rumble and when i took off it was a soft roar which was exactly what i wanted i wanted a little sound but i didn't want it to loud because i knew it would sound raspy and i never regreted it.

That's exactly what you want with a v6...quiet and mellow. It doesn't matter what exhaust brand, type, or method you use, it's still going to sound raspy or have a good amount of drone in the higher rpm's as Spector said.

Anyone who uses an o/r x-pipe is just asking for a high pitched raspy sound.

The best way to minimize, (not eliminate) but minimize raspiness and drone is to buy chambered mufflers, an h-pipe, and have the exhaust dump with turndown tips.

Re: Magnaflow Cat back cut out ?

i personally despise magnaflows on a v6! had the guy at the shop con me into giving $300 to make mt stang sound like a honda civic for the weekend! that was on a thursday by the monday the embarrsment was enough to go back to my regular shop and get my flowmasters put right back on for MORE MONEY! the biggest waste of $350 when said and done!

I personally like my stock gt mufflers, sounds stock on the interstate & a little rumble on the gas.

Yah the GT mufflers do sound pretty good on the v6's, plus if you get the takeoff system, you retain the 2.25" piping and won't have to worry about back pressure.

Installed them today and I gotta say, it sounds great, nice rumble at idle and a little louder at speed. Just what momma wanted.
