X-rated x-pipe!! Who would've thunk it??
I guess that you are right again !!

Save your Camaro and buy a Catback. You dont want your car to be
alcoholic !!

Do you?

Hey man. Sounds nice. These cameras do not do the exhausts justice in my opinion. They sound better in person. I saw your videos but I was bothered by the idiot who commented on your video. I had to leave my jab at him there so I hope you dont mind. Good job.

Have you had any acceleration problems since the install? Every once in a while, while accelerating very slightly, I get what seems to be a little bit of "goose" of acceleration from the computer (not from me). It's annoying but I'm thinking I might just need to reset the onboard computer so that it "adjusts" to the new system.

You know, I think I might have had that happen to me a couple of times in the last two weeks. Just a couple of quick blips. I was thinking of unplugging the battery too.

I dont know about everyone else, but I love the MF cat-back. I bought it purely because fishtail made a convincing approach on his posted videos (I could hear the sound fine). Everything as just as he says it is too, so i'm completely satisfied. With the airaid as well it sounds beautiful even at idle. few little more mods and we'll be good to go in terms of sound.

I feel the same way. The Magnaflow Cat Back is a quality product and sounds very nice on my car. Mine took about an hour to install by myself, and it looks like I have a quick alignment to do for one of the clamps.....might have slipped a little due to heat and such.

The Tips look great and make the stock one's look tiny in comparison.

At first yes, give it about 500 miles and computer adjusts to new exhaust

I agree ! I also installed street series cat-back from MagnaFlow and I LOVE IT !!!!!! no raspy sound, just pure deep sound, unlike the flowmasters that in my opinion sound like crap, personally the MagnaFlow cat-back has a much more modern deep done, but if you are into the old school muscle car sound then flowmasters are the way to go , to each their own and lastly, if you got a V6 with ground effects ( which is what I have ) the 4 inch tips will not fit, but thank goodness for that because I hate OVAL tips sticking out of a SQUARE tips diffuser

Sounds good and this weather will break, someday. Got to see your car and hear it in person! Oh yeah, I think I'll keep the 2-1/4" intermediate stock pipes and not go 2-1/2".I have everthing else but bigger pipes may get more voooom inside and lose some bottom end and only 1-2 on the top as a gain but who knows I fixed the drone, seems to have been the airaid not sealing all the way even though it looked like it did. Now little drone as before and loud from 2500 rpm on up!!

Hi

Does Magnaflow V8 Cat-Back competition series fit to V6?

Im very interested of Magnaflow Cat-Back part# 16580.
Gives me straight pipes, but also can easily add axle-back mufflers if needed.

Fishtail, Thank you for posting your set-up. After hearing yours I did some research and dropped the hammer on the Street Series Cat back system. I placed the order Friday and received my system yesterday with the discount and the free shipping offer from Jordan at www.magnaflowplus.com.

My wife thought I was crazy, we put our daughter to bed around 9 and I started installing it It took around 3 hours taking my time, being very careful and only using jack stands in my garage. I could not be happier with the sound, much deeper, calm and subdued when you need it to be and like a beast when you lay into it.

Thanks Fishtail and Jordan you guys were a great help

Not with the resonated x pipe that comes with the catback. I did a custom axelback first with 14" mufflers for a deeper sound and they were way to boomy for us and to loud on the freeway. Resonated x went in and boom reduced way down and not much drone on the highway, if any.Very quiet system though and muted in sound on my car at least. Someone with a full catback can help out a bit here.

Its a resonated X pipe to contain the rasp no more so you shouldnt lose hp because Cat back doesnt really add much hp anyway!

No hp loss. Allegedly more bottom to mid range power per MAGNAFLOW, maybe 1-2 on top?
