18" Magnaflow cat back installed (w/pics)
7 Attachment(s)
Finally, after much adieu thanks to a backorder from Magnaflow, I had my new cat back setup and y-pipe installed today. First and foremost, I have to thank BlackRamHemi for talking me into spending the extra money to do this. While I did not realize the savings he did, I am glad I went this route. So thank you BRH, the Kool-Aid went down smooth. Those 5" tips entirely make this mod and it was your thread that made me do it. Another shout out for 916Timmy because it was his great thread on exhaust that started me down this path months ago.

I have good news and bad news. The good news is I took a few pics for everyone. They are not the best but better than nothing and will hopefully keep the pic hos from beating down my door. The bad news is I do not have a video camera so I can't post a video...yet. I do plan to buy one soon and will update with a video later. I tried to take before and after videos with my digital camera and well...quite frankly they just flat out suck. So, more to come soon, please don't flame me now.

I did not do the install as I do not have the time nor do I own or know how to use a welder. A local shop did the entire install for $180. The system has less than three miles on it so the sound should improve with time. But I can tell you that in the short distance I drove it home, it is 100% AWESOME! I passed my wife and gunned it a little and she said it sounded good (and quite frankly, she could give a rat's fat, hairy butt how it sounds). So, I am pleased. I hope the pics at least bring you some pleasure for now.

Whoops! Just noticed I put this on the 2012 forum instead of the 2011. Sorry folks!

I wish I would have done this now, but mine works! I can switch later and waste some money :)

Does this setup give more performance than an 18" with a y-pipe? If so, how?

Razorbass 07-28-2011 10:54 PM

Too new for me to speak about performance but better air flow should help. Now that I have this installed, my next step is to put in the Volant CAI that is sitting in my garage. That, combined with exhaust, tonneau cover and higher octane gas should yield better mpg and slightly higher horsepower. Alas, I have no proof (yet), so I will allow others on this forum to share their experience. But below are two excellent threads by folks much smarter than me in hopes they may assist you as you compile info:

Thanks MD. That means A LOT coming from you. Of course, you could go ahead and hit them a brother out. :shy:

What a nice mod. Magnaflow is a great exhaust system. I hope you enjoy many REV'S and STOMPS from the HEMI to come. :smileup::smileup:
