Magnaflow Exhaust comes in tomorrow......

Hey, my magnaflow exhaust gets in tomorrow and i'll probably get it installed this weekend. I wanted to do it myself but I've talked to a few different guys at muffler shops and they said that bolt on exhaust systems never go on right and they always have to slightly modify them. Do you think this is a bunch of crap these guys are feeding me.........If you installed your own system can you tell me if it fits right out of the box or not...........especially if anyone has maganflow.

I have magnaflow , they fit fine, but it's a 6th gen. But you can always install it yourself first, then if it needs modifying afterwards, just bring it to the muffler shop and have them work on it. That should make it cheaper in the long run.

Ditto. Do it yourself if you can. I'd suggest taking it to a shop and let them make adjustments and then have it welded. Welding it should make a big difference. Latr, C
Ps -anyone know of sites that have sound of what the exhausts will sound like on our cars? I really want to do an exhaust ,but I want the "Right" sound for me. I have yet to see anyone with a 2004 V6 coupe that has made changes in the PA area. Let me know!

i dont know if the magnaflow requires welding, but i installed my borla system myself, no welding, no problems with fitting or anything. it was actually really easy, and very secure now.... the pipes get so hot as it is that it pretty much welds itself anyway after like 50 miles

Did you use a tourque wrench to get the stock exhaust off or put the new one on? Also, did you have a lift to do yours with?

just wondering but i was going to get the magnaflow and contacted nopi and was told that the exhaust for the 7th gen coupe was discontinued, was told the same thing when I contacted magnaflow. So I bought the borla instead, anyone have any info on this?

I don't know man. I ordered mine from www.hottexhaust.com and they apparently had some. Then when i looked at the tracking page of my package it apparently looked like it had been shipped from a magnaflow warehouse and not from hottexhaust. I guess they either still have some laying around or thats just a rumor. Also for future notice I told the guy on the phone at Hottexhaust that I learned about their company through Google and he gave me a 20% discount !!!. I got it all shipped for $450 dollars in stead of $560 like it says on their site. Just a word to the wise.

When i installed the magnaflow catback on my 6th gen i didnt use a lift it is kind of harder without one, but if you have access to one it would be nice. To get the old exhaust off i would just spray some wd40 or pb blast to try to loosen the bolts on the stock exhaust. The exhaust should fit fine you might have to make some small adjustments to the mufflers to make then look straight.

No, but pretty much any wrench will work, a torque wrench will work good so that you can get some leverage on the bolts.

Z Dogg,

If you have the means, I would love to hear a sound clip (or see a video) of this on your AT. I have an Auto as well, and I'm looking for as many sound clips as possible. If not, then that's cool. Good luck with the install, and definitely post some pics. I'd love to see it.

Later

Yah dude I'll definately try to post a video when i get it. But I don't really know how to do that? I'm tell'n you man $450 for a catback exhaust system shipped is pretty good....If you do decide to go magnaflow you should get it from the place I did.

Hell yeah. I appreciate it man. I sort of put a catback exhaust on the back burner due to its high price, but a quality product from Magnaflow for that price sound too good to pass up. I'm going to consider it now. Can't wait to see that vid and pics too.

ALRIGHT GUYS !!! It finally came. Its alot different than all the pictures of magnaflow systems I've seen in the past. I guess since the addition of the coupe version magnaflow decided to put new mufflers on it instead. Anyway......Check em out.....and tell me what you think?

Personally, I think they look bad freakn' ass (pardon my language)

It doesn't work like that. You have to have a URL from where the pictures reside on the internet. If I were you I would just upload them to your gallery then point to them there. Right click on the picture after it's in your gallery, go to properties, then get the url from there. Hope this helps. Ignore this if you already know it. Just trying to help. I couldn't figure it out to save my life when I first tried.

I'll probably install it tomarrow so I'll let you know how it sounds (how loud it is, etc). The mufflers are alot smaller than they were on the first magnaflow systems for our cars. At least from the pictures I've seen and that moive on the exhaust comparison thread. Anyway......whats this about a downpipe? Do you know something we dont know?????

P.S. What company did you buy it from?

maaaan, i swear.. magnaflow keeps changing the look of their exhaust!

back when Silv_Accord_V6 first got the exhaust and showed us.... i immediately fell in love with them because i didnt want a big exhaust and at the time i only knew of Comptechs ($700) and the Magnaflows were at about $450.

When i went to buy them, they had two style available... The round canister with big round tip which i did NOT want and the newer version which was the Oval canister with Oval tip (the one silv_accord_v6 got). I bought them for about $450. Then about 5-6 months later... Someone said that their Magnaflows were different from mine... they had the Oval canister with round tips (which i liked even better) and it only cost about $350 then.

Then the Magnaflows came in for the 7th gen and i remember seeing people upset with them because they had bent down tips with oval canisters, sort of like the stock 6th gen exhaust which looked pretty ugly. and NOW i see that you have a round canister with straight round tips.

These guys just changed their exhaust without notice. But i guess thats a good thing, people didnt like the bent tips on the 7th gen so they made them straight and round. I guess people didnt really like the oval tips on the 6th gen so they made them round.

good stuff man, i guess i shoulda looked in the box to see what mine looks like, but i never even had the time...can't wait to see what u have to say...

as for the downpipe, it is completly custom, i bought it off Tman, who sold it when he was getting rid of his car, there are pics of it posted on this forum.
