I just bought a Magnaflow exahust with the ORP and it wont be here till tuesday of next week. I was wondering if the SVT has a flex pipe? If it does do I have to buy another one to fit the exhaust that I just bought[dunno] [dunno] [dunno]

Yes... the SVT has a flex pipe. No, I don't think you will need a different flex, I think the stock is actually a fairly large diameter... though I don't know for certain.

you should be fine, i have the magnaflow and a high flow cat pipe and all fit well. no problems at all and it sounds good, not sure on the the sound of the off road pipe cause mine has a cat still. i also hacked off the lunch box on mine.

isnt it the same size as the stock exhaust though. If it is souldnt I buy a little bit bigger one?

The factory exhaust is only a tad smaller than a magnaflow anyways. SVT did thier homework with the exhaust, the only real bottle neck is the cat.

yeah, just while installing the ORP make sure to smooth out the flange area of the header some. It'll help a bit.

for connecting the two. Great i will have to do that. Thanks

I'm fairly certain the stock exhaust is a tad larger than the Magnaflow kit. Others have reported quarter mile losses when switching to the Magnaflow kit from stock. The ORP will offset those losses, but you may want to keep your stock flex-back.

Yeah i have a Magnaflow and its smaller than stock Exhaust. I just bought a 2.5" flex pipe and 2.5 Exhaust and will see if i gain anything. but i wouldnt change to magnaflow just keep your stock one. Return the Magnaflow or try to sell it.

you'll see/feel the biggest gains from the orp.
03-09-2007, 04:11 PM
ya thats what they all say but I love the sound of magnaflow. Might be a tad loss but it is all good. Orp will make up for it[neener]

I love the Magnaflow sound, too... which is why you're better off getting a 2.5" Magnaflow kit from trubendz.com

I wish that I would have know that. it is also cheaper to buy it from them. Too bad that somebody wouldnt want my exhaust that I have coming in.
