i have a 2005 zx3 automatic with a basic magnaflow kit. a friend of mine has a 2006 model and took off a few bolts out from under the engine which disconnected something and now his motor sounds like a beast so we did it to mine.

i dont know that name of the part that was disconnected but does anyone have any idea what im talking about? so now my focus way louder then before but im worried

my main question is can it cause and problems to the engine or tranny?

hook it back up. if u unhooked something from the exhaust, it prolly sounds like ass. the magnaflow kit sounds great.

You have the flex pipe unbolted from the rest of the exhaust. This means you have no resonator or muffler at all, just the manicat and the flex. I would hook it back up so that you dont damage the flex by leaving it hanging. Plus the magnaflow exhaust sounds good already...no need to draw any more attention to yourself.[thumb] [thumb]

yes, definitely bolt that back up. Your nice Magnaflow is good for nothing when it is completely unbolted.

i would def. hook that back up! MagnaFlow sounds great anyways! i'm actually saving up for one

running with not exhaust probaably sounds like pure ass anyways.

and like what was already mentioned, do you really want to attract that much attention to yourself?

I would like to join this hunt, Count me in. I cant believe how stupid some people are. Is it just me or does that tip look way to small for a magnaflow, also I thought the magnaflow was supposed to be 100% stainless and that resonator is not stainless, but then again I dont remember if the magnaflow comes with a resonator.

It might be a "shop made" magnaflow.

now that i look at it, the first resonator or cat looks to be stock, it might just have a hacked off stock muffler and magnaflow installed in place.

The magnaflow system is a true cat-back, hence the stock cat is kept.

Jeez man.... I hope you get that hooked up again soon cause thats insane.

and don't let all the haters stray you away from the forums, we've all started off not knowing much about cars. and if you stick around and just check out all of the stickies and ask some questions after you've read them you'll learn a lot!
