Magnaflow Competition exhaust

Does anybody have the magnaflow comp series exhaust with the 5" tips?
Or does anybody have any input/feedback on them? I'm thinkin about ARH LT with the comp series or Kooks LT with the comp series. Any input would be greatly appreciated.


Thanx

Looking to wake your new Camaro SS up without breaking the bank? This new catback exhaust from Magnaflow is just the ticket to great sound and value. This all 2.5" stainless system features OEM style hangers and great looking 5" double wall, polished, stainless tips. Due to it's lack of mufflers, this "Competiton Series" catback is the MORE aggressive sounding of Magnaflow's Camaro SS catbacks

Well first off, that is a canned description. It is the more aggressive sounding of the Magnaflow systems. We are obviously kinda limited in what we can put in our desciptions...and putting my personal opinion in there would be wrong. Plenty of people will buy that exhaust and love it..even if it is not my cup of tea.

All that being said, I sell plenty of stuff that I would not personally put on my car. It's not about what I want, it's about what the customer wants. Sound, and style are subjective, and there are customers who want a loud exhaust with 5" tips. They are gonna buy it whether I sell it or not, and guess what..I am here to make money. So if it's what they want, I will sell it to them, and give them the best service out there. However if they ask my opinion, I will also tell them that, which I did in my post above. Think of it like a shoe store. If you pick a pair of ugly shoes....it would be be almost wrong, or out of place for the shoe salesman to say "those are ugly" unless you asked their opinion first.

As a vendor you walk a line. A lot of vendors will tell you whatever you want to make a sale. If you ask me..I will give you my straight up opinion, and then let you make your mind up. I have put some people off because what they like is on the opposite side of the fence than me..but I would rather be honest then BS.

I would like to get the axel back system with the 5" tips. I would like to get the sound my brother has on his. His is the full cat back system I just don't want to spend that much on exhaust. Do the systems really sound that different? Is it worth the extra cash?

I've heard that the Street Series is somewhat quiet with the factory headers. However, add headers and you get the right combo.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54835

I've decided to go with the 3" Street Series and even though it will be quiet for a while, once I get the ARH LTs I should have what I'm looking for.

If you don't plan on getting headers then you should go with the competition series or maybe muffler delete.

Thanx
The first question I'd ask is what kind of HP are you looking for? What mods do you have planned aside from LT's and exhaust?

If you're planning on making 450+ RWHP I would recommend the AR 1 7/8" Short set-up part # CA201078SHW/C
with Magnaflow part # 16483. This will give you the LT's, Magnaflow Tru X-Pipe and rear mufflers which will be comfortable at highway speeds and when you get on it you'll know you have exhaust.

Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions.

Kind regards,

Hey mattc..I have the magnaflow comp axle back pipes that you are asking about and i love them..I am old school having many big block cars thru out the years and I can say that at idle you want even really notice the sound difference other than a little deeper tone at idle..now when driving she sounds awesome going thru the gears and they are some rpms at highway speed that it might get a littlle loud inside but it really doesn't bother me..my best advice would be to ride in a car that has it on it..if possible and check out the vids on you tube..the one with the L99 rtj car is very accurate to the sound quality...its really all in what the individual wants....hope this helped.

Magnaflow comp series axle back is a muffler delete (no mufflers - just pipes with tips on the end). It will sound OK all by itself. But if you later add
ARH Long tube Headers it will be ridiculously LOUD (way too loud for most people).

A number of guys that went with muffler delete ended up buying a quality catback exhaust after adding long tube headers. They had no idea how LOUD their muffler delete setup would get after adding long tubes. Trust me, its LOUD (cops hear you coming from miles away when your running wide open).

Thanx 4 all the feedback guys. I didn't expect to get this many posts. I have got lots of decisions to make. Finding the right exhaust is a major pain in the ass!!!

times 2 here bro! I did exactly what you mentioned. I installed the Magnaflow comp and after a couple mounts decided to go with LT's...idle is great, low throttle sounds awesome, wide open and you cannot hear yourself think! So now I am going back to the stock cans to see how that sounds with LT's and if not loud enough then I will search to find the optimal combo again....

Thing to note is that pre LT's, the sound was awesome with lots of complements and WOT was great too....if you plan to stay with the factory exhaust manifolds, CATS, and two resonators, the loudness of the sound will not be bad.

Way too loud? no it's not, I'm getting headers to make it louder. Drone? I don't have any. I really don't know what you are talking about.

Anyways, to the OP. I love the exhaust, i like the 5 inch tips and the sound is very deep and can get pretty loud...just not loud enough for me.

It's sweet when that you start up the car that it barks at you

Rice? no. In my opinion this exhaust kit sounds more like American muscle then the rest of them out there.

You want rice? get a fart can or useless wings.

Here is the link to the video of my car with the Magnaflow comp series axle back.

This is what a ricer sounds like.



I honestly do not hear a similarity between them.

The axleback Comp system on an L99 car is goinig to be a lot queiter than on the LS3. The L99 has that extra mid-resenator to keep it quiet.

That's what I want, louder the better, my two other Camaro's have Super Comps with 3 inch exhaust and flowmaster's, so I don't think this will be to loud for me

When I said rice..I mean 5" tips are too big for most. Manufactuers are putting them on on more systems, and then I get customers who buy them and call upset because the tips are too big, and in some cases make contact with the rear valance.

Well... here's the deal. I'm new when comes to all this camaro stuff. I drive a chevy pick up as my throw down ride. My 2010 camaro is not my daily driving car, not my main mode of transportation. So... that being said, i'm looking for just aggressive, nasty, noize. Louder, meaner is better. I've narrowed it down to a few exhaust systems.... what do ya'll think.

2" Stainless Works headers with the 3" aggressive cat-back or
1 7/8" ARH or Kooks LT with the magnaflow 2.5" comp series with the 5" tips.

Thanx for all the input. Everybody has been a big help.

If those were my choices I would recommend the AR 1 7/8" Short set-up part # CA201078SHW/C and Magnaflow 16580. The reason I recommend the AR Short set-up is because you will still utilize the Magnaflow Resonated X-pipe and it will take the harshness out of the system. If you went with the complete AR system you'd eliminate the resonated X and I can assure you it will be too loud.



I carry AR Headers as well as Magnaflow Cat-Backs if you're interested. Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions.

Kind regards,
