Got home from work to a nice surprise, Amazon shipped and delivered the catback I'd ordered within 36 hours. (this was purchased using an amazon promo.. 25% off all magnaflow products.. should have gotten a midpipe while I was at it, don't usually see their catbacks below $490ish, got it for 375 shipped)
Of course I had to change into some scrubs and have at it
(and ignore the ghetto jack stand setup, where I was lifting the car was tipping the jackstand on one side, so I threw another one under)
Yes, I know the garage is a mess.. It happens - it serves its purpose haha
The new stuff:
The flowmaster 40s tacked into place...:
The catback installed
Overall.. The magnaflow catback sounds a LOT deeper when on the gas, I enjoy the difference a ton.. And no more 25 MPH and 50+ MPH drone.. Definitely a fan, pretty impressed with the quality, though I had to file down some burrs on the cuts, and I had to clean a lot of shavings/cutting oil out of the pipes..
Doubt it helped much performance wise, but one can hope
With some fine adjustment/alignment all told took about 2.5 hours to install, well worth it..
Just disappointed that I had to cut the stock catback (thank god for sawzalls) I was able to get my stock catback off my fox without cutting anything
I'm sure I could have gotten it out with the struts and upper control arms out of the way, but not worth it
