Re: Magnaflow Catted X-Pipe

it might be high...but when you consider the costs of replacement catalytic converters ....its quite reasonable

Lol, it's not reasonable... They aren't replacement factory cats, they're high-flows. MRT sells a catted H for our cars for around $500. Most catted mid pipes on mustangs are around that price or cheaper. You can get a pair of high-flows cats for $200 or less.

Re: Magnaflow Catted X-Pipe

I wouldn't blame Lethal for the price as much as I would Magnaflow. How can Magnaflow justify that cost? This isn't the only seriously overpriced Magnaflow product I've seen. They make a muffler delete for the 3.7L and still want to charge almost $500 for it. WTF?!

Re: Magnaflow Catted X-Pipe

Come on,

The set is only $1,000 for two high performance cat's and the X-Pipe.
Add the tax and bend over for the """SHIPPING""" and you really have a deal.
I think I'll just stick with my H-Pipe

Do high flow cats void warranty?

Re: Magnaflow Catted X-Pipe

Hi-flow cats really shouldn't void the warranty, as there is a miniscule chance of causing damage to an engine by removing restriction. You're much more likely to cause damage and void a warranty by adding flame throwers to the exhaust or somehow increasing the restriction in the exhaust system.

That being said, if the restriction in the exhaust system is reduced too much, you could adversely impact your emissions. Modern exhaust systems are designed to maximize the scavenging effect that piston driven motors can have due to the alternating exhaust pulses. Too little restriction can cause an inefficient burn in the chamber due to remaining unburnt fuel and residual exhaust products.

So as to whether or not Hi-flow cats will void your warranty, well, that's kind of up to the dealership and Ford.

Wow. They are obviously proud of their products lol.

It seems like The Magnaflow stuff consistently has the best reviews on thier products. But their are many other companies that get good and great reviews at a much lower price.

BBK is almost 1/2 that price. Is Magnaflow twice as good to justify costing almost twice as much?

Peace of mind is priceless. If you really like Magnaflow, save your pennies and go that route. Atleast you know you will be 100% happy.

I love magnaflow but would never spend $1000 for an X-pipe. I plan on going to a shop and getting custom 2.5" pipes from the manifolds to my axle-backs with a set of hi-flow cats welded in. Would cost half the price and would be a full setup minus headers.
