Hey guys. I just wanted to show you my new exhaust system. I put a Magnaflow high-flow cat and a Magnaflow performance muffler on it. Then I ran 2.5 in pipe out the back. I love it and I am already getting much better gas milege. It has a really deep tone to it and isn't overly loud. It gets attention when you are getting on it but it isn't obnoxious even then. It has a very nice purr at highway speed. Cool







later this week: air intake Finger

Cool.. I love the way the Magna flow sounds...

Keep an eye on it though cause I tore the crap out of two of them... They are not as strong as I would like..

Thats why I run a Flow master now... They are loud and resonate and every turd head has one on his busted ass Z71 (LOL>. personal joke.) But they are indeed very tough...


Extra points for the chrome tip... Mr. Green

Magnaflows are cool. Close to stock, not too loud. I've had a Magnaflow w/ high-flow cat on my 4.0 ZJ for years now, and still love it. At idle it sounds sorta like a stock V8, and it doesn't get too loud when you're on it. One thing I did notice, though, is when bringing home "long things" from the hardware store with the ZJ's tailgate open, the drone does get a bit annoying.

The main reason I chose the Magnaflow over the Flowmaster this time was that the Magnaflow had a lifetime warranty. The Flowmaster only came with a one year warranty. I put dual flowmasters on my old truck and loved it, but this will be a little more subtle.

I like my flowmaster 50, nice low growl with the v8. I taunt the crappy little tuner punks around here that only think they have a good sounding car.

I added on my new air intake today. I am pretty happy with how it looks. I didn't have time to take it for a drive yet. Just thought I would share the pics.
