Magnaflow vs. Flowmaster
I'm trying to decide between flowmaster and magnaflow. I live in NY about an hour north of the city, there's alot of road salt and harsh conditions that have been known to be hard on exhaust systems, I heard that Flowmasters rust and wear faster? I like the Flowmaster American Thunder alot, but if it's gonna wear faster I might go for a Magnaflow. Should I order it right from the company's website or is there a good place to order from online that anyone knows of? Any other recommendations? I want a kinda deep throaty sound. I have a 4.7 too btw. thanks!

Between those two I would go with Magnaflow...Off the top of my head I do not know any sites that sell Magnaflows a good price...But, just google it and look at all the sites you can, and compare shipping rates, with the price of the product itself...

I prefer Magnaflow. It's quieter but not silent.

Find the part number you need from magnaflow's site then search ebay. I got the full stainless system for my old truck for 280 from Ebay.

Or check out they have super fast and free shipping. They also carry Aero Turbine mufflers which are 304 stainless steel and have a liftetime guarantee. Just youtube the aero turbine 3030

Hey there,

I put a Cherry bomb muffler on my truck which is a typical knock off of a Flowmaster. The guy at the shop pulled the Flowmaster out of the box and the Cherry Bomb out and they were identical. I put the Cherry on cause it was half the price.

But you are correct with the saying that the Flowmaster will rot quicker. It will because 95% of the Magnaflow kits sold are stainless. My exhaust is not quite 3 years old and I doubt its going to hold together for another full year.

The salt and sand chew threw the aftermarket NON stainless stuff like crazy. For this reason I would definitely go Magnaflow. You can get a stainless steel kit for a super good deal if you look around. I will be going with a Magnaflow stainless catback system for my Ram as soon as I get the extra cash or this one rots off. Should be by next Fall.

Anyways good luck and maybe post some pics or vid once you got it all installed.

I had the american thunder cat back system on my truck and the muffler rotted out in about 3.5 years. I now have a custom magnaflow system custom bent by Lous custom exhaust and love it not as loud as the flowmaster but has a nice sound to it and should last alot longer

I really havent heard anything bad about either. Myself i want something with a rumble instead of real loud..............Thats all. Magnaflow is a little quiet compared to Flowmaster from what i understand.
