installed Magnaflow 11256

So I have always intalled full cat back systems and used magnaflows and love them. So I decided this time id try and save money and install a muffler only. I decided to go with the 11256. 18" body wanted good ammihnt of sound but not too much. I bought some 2.5" aluminized pipe to fill in the space. Cut out the old with a sawsall... welded pipe to the flange and used u bolt style clamps to seal it all up... I must say it was a pretty easy install and it sounds amazing!!! Thehardest part was welding the flange to the pipe. But its all good and no leaks...

P.s. the stock tubing is larger than 2.5". My expanded 2.5" pipe to allow 2.5 to slide in was smaller then the stock pipig. So its probably more like 2.75" piping FYI

That's what I have and I <3 it! But I went from the cat back with 3 inch stainless to the tip...

Re: installed Magnaflow 11256

Ya I wanted to.do it cheap.... I got the muffler on ebay for $65 shipped, 2.5" aluminized pipe and clamps for $6. Did everythingelse myself. I have two polished tips from a 2010 camaro ss im gonna weld one on and maybe a dummy tip on the other side for now. I eventually plan on doin an str8 rear so don't wanna do to much now.

Re: installed Magnaflow 11256

Ya I haven't done the tips yet but will soon. Maybe this weekend. The hard thing about mine is I kept the resonator so I had to find tips that were 5-7 inches long to not look funny. These are like 3.5" outlets 2.5" in let so ill chop it a little and then weld in place... the other side if I do it will fabricate a bracket to be easily removed... ill tryamd post pics odor when done.
