Anyone know the dimensions of a straight piece of pipe that I would need to replace the resonator with? I didn't measure my system before I had it installed. Anyone know cheap places to get SS pipe? Is it okay to weld two different alloys of SS together? (the system uses 409 according to a Magnaflow sales rep).

My mistake. Also, thanks for posting your success. It motivated me to call again and talk them into letting me buy a $500 exhaust haha.

4th time is the charm?

The coupon was given if you browsed magnaflow exhausts on amazon I think.

Yea, I had been for the different exhausts on their page for quite sometime without being able to make up my mind. Magnaflow was the one I had the most interest in so I naturally jumped on-board as soon as I saw the deal pop up in my inbox!

I'm happy to say that my car is in the shop Right now getting
a custom exhaust put on right now. He put it up in the air so can
Talk about what size of tube to go with. From the cat to the first
Resonator it's 2.25 then gos to 2.0 all the way to the muffler. I'm
Taking both resonators off and going 2.25 to a Magnaflow muffler.
This is my first performance mod being done to the car. So I'm little
Excited lol

Anyways, has anyone used this exhaust in combination with the FSWERKS 4-1 race headers? If so, how does it sound?
I second this question. Can somebody chime in?

Would be loud as hell, you could use it with minor modification to the hangers to header. But you would want to add an extra resonator to quiet it down.

Not familiar with headers, how would this affect the sound of the exhaust? The exhaust is still 2.25" with a resonator and muffler.
