Re: Magnaflow for WK2 5.7L installed

Found the Corsa droneless claim to be a bunch of marketing hype on a Z28 I owned, Have a friend who installed a Borla on his 5.7 Tundra and was very impressed. Easy install, great sound.
I know I am not quoting a wk2 system but do have direct knowledge of what I say for what it is worth.
I think we are all looking for a nice little increase in throatiness without it becoming obnoxious on the highway. That DRONE, UGH!!!!

I had 3" catback Borla on my WRX (3" turbo back, actually), and I know that this brand is fantastic. I had Magnaflow on my Eclipse before that, and am also impressed with this brand's sound. I am fully aware that you're going to have a louder tone while cruising on the highway, I mean you installed an aftermarket exhaust system, right? I just was looking to see if the tone drastically changed when the MDS turned on and off. Like does it go from that nice sweet exhaust tone to a wonky fart sound, or something like that. The more video clips, the better!

Re: Magnaflow for WK2 5.7L installed

I had Corsa on my Denali pickup.Really sounded nice.I thought 1200 to 1500 dollars was too much money so I went with deleting the resonators.BAD IDEA !!!! Sound is great when driving hard.At a normal pace the drone is annoying.Next thing I am going to try is putting small glass pack mufflers where the resonators were.I think this will work.I'll post results when compleated after new years when my exhaust guy returns to work.

Re: Magnaflow for WK2 5.7L installed

Has anyone who installed the magnaflow exhaust used any sort of heat shielding for the muffler?

Re: Magnaflow for WK2 5.7L installed

I have the Magnaflow on my 2012 GC Overland. Bought from a "certified seller" on the Magnaflow web page. I got the unit in two days! Paid $900.00 including shipping. It was perfect. Yes, there is a "drone" on the freeway at 65 to 75 mph when it drops to 4 cyl. Click the shifter from "D" to "6" and it disappears. Actually, it's of no notice with radio on. Overall, I'm very pleased. Quality of product is A+ and it fits perfectly.

It's a manual step you would need to do after each startup, but it may help.
Just hit the tow-haul button. MDS disabled

I would really like to see how the main muffler fits underneath and the tips.
Please

Newb question here, when you say resonators, you mean the two in the front part of the exhaust? I would like to try this, but want to make sure I modify it correctly! The sketch earlier in this thread shows the front two as resonators...

Re: Magnaflow for WK2 5.7L installed

I am currently running the magnaflow catback on my 2012 and hate the drone. I have to admit it sounds great when you get on it but for normal driving I experience in cab vibrations and a drone whenever MDS is on, regardless of speed. Experience is most unpleasant at highway speeds. Considering corsa now but just can't decide.
