Magnaflow Cat-Back (16583) Installed on 2013 1LT RS

Just finished installing the 16583 Magnaflow Cat-Back system on my car. Sounds great so far and I can only assume it will get deeper in tone after some carb build up.

Overall the install was easy as hell, I even pulled the entire stock exhaust out in one piece.





Here is a video of the sound just start-up, idle and revs. I will be doing drive by's shortly.

Sounds a lot cleaner than the stock exhaust and no rasp, you going to add Solo HFC?

Looks and sounds great! This is by far my favorite setup for the V6.

Best regards,

My car currently has the K&N CAI and the Cat-back system. I will be adding the VMax ported TB once it arrives.

Yes HFC are in the future as the stock cats restrict the hell out of the exhaust. The current sound is great and the drone isn't bad at all. It is only really heard when driving up some fairly steep hills.

Just to re post this... I can feel the difference and obviously hear the difference since adding these. The car's sound at idle is perfect, not to loud but aggressive. Has a perfect purr to it.

Honestly... you can't hear the stock exhaust, that is what I hated and the ultimate reason why I got these.

I know Magnaflow makes great products with high quality... and I couldn't turn down the massive deal on got on these.

I have the exact same setup with the Vmax throttle body and love it. I do not see a point in the Solo Cat's, it sounds great and is very responsive just as it is. Let me know when/if you get the cat's. Would like to know how much of a difference they make, other wise I'm going to spend the cash on ACS T5 splitter and skirts.

Congrats on your new exhaust.

However, I have read a number of comments around here that the stock cats are not very restrictive at all, and that until you're moving a lot of air, ie, forced induction, that the entire stock exhaust flows quite well. This is why people don't see any real HP gains from exhaust mods with these cars, at least while NA. Just sound improvements.

Yes....don't buy it. Go IPS TT or IPF SC.

You'd just need to be absolutely sure they can tune it. They made yet another change to the ECM from the 2012 to the 2013 model year, and I'm not sure if there are tunes yet for the 2013.

Good to know... by the time I am able to pull the trigger on this, I am sure they will have a tune for it.

Just a FYI... I have been letting the Carbon build up as honestly the tone is already getting a bit deeper. I will give it one more week and do a full run of drive by videos.

They are on the list... but I would have to find a killer price on them to pull the trigger.
