Magnaflow Street Series

The new exhaust should be here tomorrow. Went with the street series mufflers cat-back vs the competition mufflers. I want a little rumble, not looking to piss off the neighbors more than I already do.

At least now it'll sound like a proper V8.

That should be it until I get the truck buttoned back up and make some room for this thing to get ripped on.

As soon as it gets here, it'll be on the lift. Besides, it's easier to shave 30 lbs off the car vs the driver.

Magnaflow Street Series

I have the streets on my 14 and I love them. They have a great tone and are loud but not over the top. I like them even better now that I added the x pipe. I still have my cats on as well. You made a great choice

It's tasteful loud. I start mine in the garage everyday and my 3 year old sons room is right above it and it doesn't wake him up. You will be fine. X pipe mellows it out a bit also.

My wife will notice ANYTHING.

Last time I put the motor back together on the truck, after having it balanced, the first thing she says after 30 seconds in the truck, "It's a lot smoother than before."

When I put the trans mount bushing in the car, "Did you do something, it's a lot rougher than yesterday?"

If a bug gets smashed on the lower right corner of a fog light, she'll notice......

Put the exhaust on this afternoon. This was literally a 30 min job, took long to unpack the box....

I'm REALLY happy with the sound, it was EXACTLY what I was looking for....little but of growl, little deeper note, but not obnoxious. Inside the car is almost no noticeable difference, unless you lug the motor down low, you will hear some drone there.





Hate it when parts just fall off a brand new car. Holy crap that exhaust is heavy. It's easily a 30 lb drop in weight.







Really nice fit and finish. Only had one minor ding on the pipes and that was one of the connections....couple taps with the hammer and it was all good.

I'm loading a video now of how it sounds. The video really doesn't do it justice.

Sounds good. I'm sure it sounds quite a bit better on your end as we'll!

They sound amazing. I'm running the 3" catback. Does not draw unwanted attention around town.

They really do sound good. I got a video with a GoPro on the rear bumper and one in the car. I'm putting that one together right now.

That's what these are, the 3" cat-backs with x-pipe and street mufflers.

Just you wait

If you think they sound good now, Just wait until you get around 1,000 miles on them. When they carbon up inside they actually will sound much better.

Yeah, exhausts always mellow out a bit as they carbon up a bit. I'm just so used to all my turbo stuff that you barely need to muffle to make it reasonable.....except the Chevelle, that thing is just obnoxious. On the street it has 2 mufflers inline after the downpipe and it's not TOO bad. It's still loud, but it's bearable. For the track it dumps just behind the driver side front tire.....the thing is so loud it actually made the audio break up on the videos on the dyno. In the truck, it's barely louder than stock. If you didn't see the cage, ladder bars, drag radials......ahh, nevermind, you wouldn't think that was very stock. lol

Here's the inside and outside video from the GoPro's....

The little bit of rattling you hear inside the car is my radar detector against the windshield....I'm about to smack that thing with a hammer.

After driving it a bit more the only place I'm noticing any drone in the car is if you lug the motor below 1600 RPM's. As soon as you hit 1600 RPM's the drone cuts off like a knife.

The only time I'm really down that low is 6th gear and going less than 50 mph.

I like the sound! I just replaced the factory resonator with the Ford Racing X pipe, kept the factory mufflers, and it's as loud as my wife will allow. I also have a convertible and you hear more outside sound anyway.

Yeah, the wife hasn't been in the car yet since doing the exhaust. I'm just waiting for the ear full. lol

There are a few guidelines I go by when talking to guys about exhausts....

1- Are you married?
2- Do you have young kids?
3- Do any of them ride in the car with you?

If you answered yes, you DO NOT want a loud exhaust. There is no drone louder than the drone coming from the passenger seat when the wife is ticked off at your cool guy parts. lol

I always laugh when guys wanna do straight pipes on the trucks.

Soooo, let me get this straight....you're married, you have kids, you tow with a vehicle that generally stays in a low RPM range, AND you want to put a stack right by the back window?......okay, I'll be seeing you again in a few months....you'll either be divorced and loving your straight pipe or you'll be wanting a muffler so you're not dealing with the wife. lol

Even on my '06 which is pretty much strictly a track truck, other than driving it to the track for "street" races, it gets pretty annoying for that short distance. I'm not a fan of the stacks on trucks and the only reason I run one on the '06 is because some tracks require the exhaust to exit upwards on a diesel.......I don't understand why....lol

Sounds like you need to please her in other ways then. Or find someone who accept you for who you are vs changing you.

I never understood this anyway. My wife has been in my car like 2 times and never once driven it. The wife's car is always the family car! Lol. It's not even an issue because we never do family outings in the mustang. It's not practical for that regardless of how loud it is or isn't.

I had a buddy whose mother-in-law was visiting and they decided to go camping. Towing the trailer with the mother-in-law and kids in the back and the stacks right behind her head.....let's just say he was on the side of the road real quick disconnecting the exhaust. lol

I try to leave the tow rig fairly stock. It has a few toys, but it's the vehicle we travel in. Last thing I wanna do is lug 18k lbs behind it listening to diesel drone for 800-900 miles.
