I'm sure it could be made to work since you cut it to fit your stock axelback, you could just do the same with this exhaust .. I'm hoping someone offers a direct replacement though ... I'm thinking someone will .. hint hint

I'm pretty sure it does. ADM had already done some of these. Call Andy over at ADM Performance (www.admperformance.com).

I'm pretty sure someone just posted that they had to get a custom pipe made to run the ARH with his Magna Flow exhaust. It was not a bolt on setup.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. But I don't think the ARH mate up with a Magna Flow catback. Some fabrication will be required to make it work.

I have the ARH headers and 2.5inch catback from Magnaflow. Yes, you're gonna need to have custom connector pipes made, but I doubt it would be hard for a good muffler shop to do.

I would suggest doing the ARH header install yourself, it's not that bad, bolting it up to the stock exhaust per the included instructions, then taking your car and the catback kit to a muffler shop. I wish I had done it that way instead of sweating underneath my car for 2 days trying to get the tips lined up in the bumper to no avail. ARH - 2.5 inch Magnaflow, bolt on possible, but I would really take it to a muffler shop. ARH - 3 inch magnaflow, you're going to HAVE to take it to a muffler shop.

Andy, is that a custom cat back with magnaflow mufflers welded in? That looks SUPER clean! Nice work!

I made it all,Lots of work to get perfect - 10-13 hrs fully tig welded mandrel bent 304 stainless.

The Magnaflow kits I have installed fit not so good and need alot of extra work as well...I spoke with them (my rep) and they will be looking into it.

Guys, There's axle backs that only use a small portion of the original pipes. With our system installed you'll need to use a small portion of the original pipes to connect to the axle back. I believe Magnaflow has this set-up already. I know for a fact that Borla has it. We installed a set yesterday for a customer.
