Magnaflow for WK2 5.7L installed
 
I have to say i'm a little bit disappointed. 1. I ordered (through local 4wheelparts) two months ago, finally shipped wed. 2. The x-pipe outter shell was <1/4" from protective pans on both sides. 3. They sent two left tips (the tips themselves are welding from Magnaflow to an elbow so there's one unique left and one right tip). 4. there's a drone with vibration between 1500-2000rpm under light load seemingly when it's being a 4-cylinder vehicle.

I chose Magnaflow because I think Borla and Corsa are too loud for my taste and that part of it i'm happy with my Magnaflow. It sounds just as I like it under load on acceleration and in all conditions except #4 mentioned above.

Sweet! You know what we need, pics and a video! Which Magnaflow did you go with?

Thats a bummer. I've asked a ton of people, they were happy with (drone-less) Corsa. I called Borla, Corsa, and Magnaflow and asked a ton of questions. I sourced the Corsa exhaust today, my dealer didnt care if it was Mopar or Corsa. For what it's worth, I believe Corsa is manufacturing for Mopar. Perhaps you could return it?

on the wk hemi, the magnaflow comes with a resonator and a muffler.

i dont know you guys stock setup but did you ditch the factory resonator if it comes with one?

or you will need to add one if you have to keep it. any good exhaust place can help with a reso.

attached the layout, i'll try to attach some photos later.

Another forum member posted his install and mentioned the same drone I experienced but said it was minor and barely noticeable. I agree with the sound part of the drone is easily covered up by stereo but there's a vibration I could feel. That's the bad part. I don't think I'll return it.

and as far as the correct right side tip goes, they're overnighting it to me.

So what was the outcome here?? Still a drone with the Magnaflow? I'm intrigued by the more subtle sound- but this doesn't sound great...

The correct tail pipe section was overnighted as promised and installed. drone is still there. i've gotten used to the sound of it especially with the radio on. none of my passengers have noticed it prior to me pointing it out. i suppose i may be a little really picky since i paid for it :). No plans to change anything at this point.

i wonder if any of the programmers in the future will be able to turn off multi-displacement. i'd love to try it to see if the drone goes away.

I saw this described on another thread - MDS can be disabled by engaging the ERS (range selector) by moving the shifter towards you once. #5 should show on the EVIC, which says you have full use of all 5 gears (like before) but with the MDS disabled. It's a manual step you would need to do after each startup, but it may help.

Wow and to think I was going to get that exact kit! Sorry for you.

Anyone else have any other experiences with the Magnaflow???

Tried it and BOY, what a difference! Every bit of the drone disappeared with MDS disabled. Will keep doing this for a tank or two of gas to observe effect on mpg. But since most of my driving are in town, I don't think it'd be a huge impact.
