Shouldn't be any big deal. They had to do that kind of stuff on mine as well. This is where buying a complete cat-back would have a slight advantage but really I don't see how you would ever notice a difference. The air flow might be ever so slightly restricted but again it's not going to be anything you would feel or see on a time slip.

Depends on who your welder is. If they are any good they won't need to use a smaller pipe.

First they should spot weld it, then line it up, then fully weld it.

Good deal.....

I'm still happy with my setup. I have noticed a slight drone at about 1800 rpm in 5th or 6th gear if the car is under load (ex: trying to go up a slight hill on the highway). Not that big a deal to me because you either back off the gas a little or give it a little more gas and it goes away. I think this is common on most of the systems.

Another thing I did and would suggest is painting your exhaust. I did it to cover up the welds from the muffler delete plus the welds on the factory hangers were already rusty looking and you could see those from behind the car. I just happend to have a can of VHT 1700 degree Aluminum colored paint I got at a parts store. When I had it on a lift one day I just used a little cardboard as a protector to not get paint everywhere and shot the section of the exhaust that you can see from behind. Took like 5 minutes. Now it looks all nice and aluminum shiney from behind.

Good luck....I don't think you'll be disappointed. Let us know how it turns out.

i will man. did you paint it silver or what?? i'm wanting it black to blend in, the ugly mufflers, though straight through design, are bugging me and really behind why i'm doing the exhaust in the first place.

There isn't a whole lot of the pipe visible with the muffler delete. Actucally the main thing that shows is where the factory hangers attach.

I used VHT brand 1700 degree paint. The color is called "Aluminum" and said something like "with ceramic". It looks like a nice aluminim color.

Go with a flat back 1700 degree paint if you don't want it visible at all. Just wait till you have it back fromt he muffler shop and then see what you think.

Is the X pipe/resonator really an X pipe? Does it cross over on the inside?

I have the Magnaflow street catback and I'm assuming that's the same resonator I have. I believe the Magnaflow Street uses the same resonator/xpipe/muffler along with two extra mufflers near the end.




I believe the part number is 11386. If you go on the Magnaflow website it says its a dual inlet/dual outlet muffler. I doesn't say anything about it being an X pipe.

I'm just hoping it is an X pipe of sorts and not just a dual inlet/dual outlet muffler.

I'm not sure on that system but if it is using the 11386 it is a x-pipe. If you look at my pics in the begining of this thread you can kind of see it but it was definately an x-pipe on the inside. It is preforated as well.

I'm pretty confident its the same thing. It's good to know it's an X pipe of sorts. I looked at the pictures, but I still wasn't sure. As mentioned, Magnaflow doesn't say anything about part # 11386 being an X pipe. They should mention that in the description of the part.
When I get a chance, I'm going to call Magnaflow and ask them if 11386 is also used in their Steet Catback.

The 11386 is the same exact piece used in their catback system. And when I did my research on the Magnaflow website it said the muffler had an x-pipe. That was awhile ago but they called it a Tru-X muffler.

got this exhaust put on the other way. it sounds nice, but it's not really loud at all. i was really hoping it'd be a little louder than it is, but for now all i can hope is that the magnaflow will 'break in' and get louder. the car feels a little bit more powerful in the upper rpm's. the only thing i'm slightly dissappointed in is the sound, as from the vids it sounds loud, when on my car it's not. thanks caverman for your help. btw i painted my exhaust tubing black, blends in well

I think it's louder on the outside than on the inside. When I took video of my brother going through the gears I was alot more suprised at how it sounded from the outside. Wait a couple weeks and then get someone else to drive the car by you or ride in a car behind it. I think you'll be suprised that under WOT it's not that quiet outside.....nothing over the top though.

It might get a little louder over time but I wouldn't think by much. If you want it louder you might have the options to do a couple things. One is that they say the non-resonated Tru-X pipe is louder because it's not resonated. Another options is headers....but I heard it really makes it loud then. Third option is to either remove the rear cat (that's what I did and it was a little louder), go with an off-road mid-pipe (requires a tune), or maybe wait and see if something like the High-flow cat system that SOLO is trying to develop would help.

Post back after a while and let everyone know what you think about it.

i'm probably going to do shorty headers to the hiflo catted mid pipe(if it ever happens), but thanks man. the car does seem to pick up a little more in the high rpms, you said your car only had 35 miles on it when you changed over, mine had 11k and i felt a difference in upper rpms, so it was worth something. only have the 86 bucks shipped for the x-pipe and 150 for the muffler/resonator/h-pipe delete and install of resonated x-pipe, so for 236 bucks, a little rumble and a little more pick up in the upper rpms, i'd say it was well worth it.

I wish that Magnaflow made the 16580 kit with the tru-x pipe. That would be PERFECT!!

I did this back in February as well. I removed the H Pipe and installed #11386 and I have the Magnoflow #16582 Axel Back. I love the sound plus I am getting a mpg more.

Are you running the factory resonators? How does it sound?

FWIW I just replaced stock resonators with the Edelbrock non-resonated X pipe connected to Solo Performance Quantum axleback. Louder than the axelbacks by themselves, loud and somewhat annoying hum @ 2200-2400 rpm. Don't know if you'd call it drone or just a loud exhaust hum. Cheaper than a complete cat back by about $300.

Hmmm....if you ever get some headers I would love to hear that setup.

LOL....I would be intrested in that as well.

Video and a before/after dyno for all the nay sayers would be perfect as well.

So I finally pulled the trigger on a set of LT headers, 3" exhaust, and tune....done by ADM Performance. While it's there they did the pre-install dyno and I thought those of you intrested in doing the muffler delete, rear cat delete, and x-pipe would be intrestested in the dyno result.

Here is the stats on the car at this dyno.
About 3,500 miles
Magnaflow resonated x-pipe
Muffler delete
Rear cat delete
Halltech Yellow Jacket CAI

375 rwhp / 375 rwtq

Here is the video......an YES I now the headlight is out. The ballast must have gone out and I'll have it replaced.
