Magnaflow video WTF!!!

Why does the magnaflow video for the WK2 Srt sound like crap yet the regular 5.7 wk2 video sounds pretty good?

I normally Love the magnaflow sound but this thing sounds like crap! Like something is wrong.
Am I the only one that thinks this?

Re: Magnaflow video WTF!!!

I think I am going to call them and see if there is any better videos. I just cannot believe that my favorite exhaust company would have something this crappy.

Funny I thought the exact same thing, so I just cut the resonators off. Sounds awesome.

Thread dig

Just to mention

I have the magnaflow

It sounds absolutely nothing like these videos

It's really nice to be honest

I'll post a video when I get a chance

Re: Magnaflow video WTF!!!

I have recorded a video where it sounds great, reluctant to post as number plate is visible

I'll record another

And I read a post where someone said its a pointless exhaust that sounds like stock etc...

It sounds nothing like stock

There no thong slapping crackly sound like stock, it's smooth as butter with a very deep woof rather than a little dog bark

That said its not loud, it can be, but at wot it's not something that you can hear from 10miles away

Re: Magnaflow video WTF!!!

I've now spent two weeks with mine and it's perfect. The rumble is pleasing and the drone, while still present, is now more like a soothing bass sound.

The only downside is that it hums a frequency that makes the switchgear rattle, in the front doors. That's just cheap switchgear hardware. I'll have to address that now.

Re: Magnaflow video WTF!!!

Do you still have MDS?

I have a tune with MDS turned off, it's heaps better

I found it has made approx less than 0.5L/100km difference without MDS active overall

Was a tad more efficient with MDS, but now it's much smoother and a tad more powerful

For example the power gauge now reads 375kw in metric and 500hp where as before it'd only get to 334kw or 472hp in US, not scientific but it feels a bit less lethargic than I'd did at times with the factory tune

What is MDS? Is it the cylinder deactivation function?
