MagnaFlow 14829 Recommendation Gone Wrong?

So I'm calling around trying to get a price on the Magnaflow 14829 mufflers. This one sales rep freaked on me and told me there was no way he'd recommend this muffler for the car. He said a 4 inch tip would touch the ground...

I checked the stats on the magnaflow site and I see where he got the 4 inches from:


Material: 100% Stainless Steel - Mirror Finish
Body Shape: 5in.x8in. Oval
Inlet/Outlet Size: 2.25in./4in.
Body Length: 14in.
Overall Length: 24in.
Core Size: 2.5in.
Position: Center/Center


Features and Benefits: The Street Series is designed for the souped up street machine. It features a high flow tuning tube, balanced to the needs of the high revving import engine. The Street Series emits a smooth, deep tone while offering improved performance over OEM equipment. The Street Series is recommended for street cars with bolt-on performance modifications and custom body kits.


I've also checked youtube and it looks fine on the car to me. I ain't no muffler expert, anyone see any justification in his statement?

FYI. I'm putting dual on my I4, leaving everything else stock and running a y from the resonator. Just wanted to put it on for looks since I have a kit on the car. If anyone knows of a better muffler for the I4 let me know.

I have 4" tips that came welded my Magnaflow mufflers and those dimensions sound exactly the same as the ones I have. So I don't know where this guy gets off cause thats not a very large muffler for an Accord.

On a side note are you getting a v6 bumper too to finish it off?

^ you dont need a v6 bumper. They are both the same. There is a cutout that can be removed with a few clips and a bolt or so.

yup there's 2 of those vinyl clips holding the plastic plate in place for the driver side exhaust. Can't wait to take those off, I can Finally replace a clip I broke on the engine bay, and I'll have a bonus one!

I got the Magna flows installed this weekend and let me say "WOW".
First off to get these installed we had to cut the rear bumper to get the tips to flush. Else it would get tucked and the muffler guy was worried I'd get a black build up on the bumper. I cringed as they cut it but definitely worth it. I also put the skirt on so it covered up the cuts on the bumper. When we put them on in the shop all I was getting was compilments on it. Its also turned alotta heads when I parked at the grocery.


So I had them installed after the resonator, spliced into the pipe bend to the original muffler. Performance wise I see a difference, my 4-banger has a better response now. It used to have a slight kickback on acceleration, its been significantly nulled. Noise wise its (low and purring) perfect for me complimenting the engine rev nicely. (In most cases you can't hear it before you see it unless I rev) and doesn't have that farting noise either. On the highway its barely audiable unless you punch it (which is when I want to hear it).

Love these mufflers so far, definitely recommend.
