About MagnaFlow

Quality, Power, & Sound; This is the motto MagnaFlow lives by. This slogan has led the company on its steady path to success. They have been in business for more than 30 years, and is a market leader in exhaust systems. No other brand has managed to fulfill the demands auto enthusiast have on their exhaust systems, while still complying with emission standards.

MagnaFlow is constantly expanding their product line, introducing new cutting-edge technology and designs. Their exhaust systems have first class workmanship, and extreme attention to detail in both design and fabrication.  The stainless-steel pipes in a MagnaFlow exhaust system are mandrel bent, keeping their shape through the bends to avoid obstructions to the gas flow. The free-flow mufflers feature smooth necks, and a straight-through, perforated stainless steel tuning pipe.  That pipe is wrapped in stainless mesh wrap and surrounded by tightly packed acoustical fiber in a lap-joint welded stainless-steel body.  Furthermore, the muffler is finely tuned to dampen irritating pitch tones and allows for that iconic MagnaFlow sound.

Cat-Back Exhaust Systems

Cat-back exhaust systems will run from the outlet of your catalytic converter straight to the exhaust tips. The pipes included in your cat-back exhaust system can vary between manufacturers, but many would include a pipe from the catalytic coveter to the muffler, the muffler itself, and any pipes from the muffler to the exhaust tips, and the exhaust tips. With pipes starting after your catalytic converter, your vehicle will stay emissions compliant. There are systems that may contain a muffler delete, but depending on your states laws, you could run into some issues during emissions. Now that we understand what generally comes with a cat-back exhaust lets break down the benefits of them.

We all know the first benefit of a cat-back exhaust, sound. How that sound is unlocked is the true benefit of your upgrade. Cat-back exhaust systems generally have larger diameter piping. Good systems will also have mandrel-bent turns. Both larger diameter piping and mandrel-bent turns will help reduced the level of back pressure at the engine manifold, allowing your engine to breathe easier. This in turn creates more horsepower and torque, yay!
