Expert Answers about MagnaFlow

  • What is the Difference Between a Resonator Exhaust Tip and a Regular Exhaust Tip
  • A resonator exhaust tip can be considered as a cavity resonator in which the design causes the air to vibrate a certain way in a hollow cavity which produces a certain sound. They can be used in some systems to work with the muffler to reduce noise. But at the tip, a resonator exhaust tip will produce more noise versus a regular exhaust tip. That loud, high frequency, reverberation sound you hear on import tuner cars is resonator exhaust. If that is the sound you are looking for, then...

  • How Many Catalytic Converters Are Installed in 2002 Lexus ES300
  • The 2002 Lexus ES falls into the 4th generation of this design and if equipped with a 3.0L V6 engine it has three catalytic converters, according to my contact at MagnaFlow. The front converter is part # MF50821. The rear converters are parts # MF26214 and # MF50260. These are all bolt-on products; no welding is required. None of these items are approved by the state of California. I have linked each of these parts, but please note that the product images on our web pages are not...

  • Which MagnaFlow Exhaust for Deeper Exhaust Note on 2013 Chevrolet Camaro 2LT With 3.6L V6
  • The MagnaFlow Stainless Steel Straight-Through Universal Muffler for V6 Camaro, part # MF14277, is a weld-on dual outlet muffler designed specifically for the V6 Camaro with a single transverse muffler. My contact at MagnaFlow indicates that the muffler for your Camaro is part # MF14226. This is a single-inlet, single-outlet muffler made of 100 percent stainless steel and offering unrestricted flow for increased horsepower, torque and fuel efficiency, along with a deeper exhaust tone....

  • Will a Resonated Exhaust Tip Make Exhaust Sound Louder on a Truck
  • Using a resonated exhaust tip such as # PM-5104 would make the exhaust sound more crackly, for lack of a better term, than the stock exhaust and it might be a little louder. If you want to keep the exhaust note the same then a tip like # MF35212 would be a better way to go. It fits a 2-3/4 to 3 inch diameter exhaust pipe. If you want a deep and louder sound then you would want a cat-back exhaust system. For that I would need to know the year, make, and model truck you have, bed length,...

  • Difference Between Metallic and Ceramic MagnaFlow Catalytic Converters
  • I contacted our representative at MagnaFlow about the differences in the metallic and ceramic catalytic converters. The representative informed me that the metallic catalytic converters, like part # MF59956 are a bit stronger and would be good for applications where the catalytic converter is close to the header as they can handle more heat. The metallic ones are usually used on OBD1 applications. The ceramic catalytic converters, such as part # MF99659HM, are not as strong and usually...

  • Recommend Replacement Catalytic Converters For 1996 Ford Explorer

For this we have the MagnaFlow Stainless Steel Catalytic Converter, part # MF23313, (49 state approved) which is a direct fit replacement. If you have the V8 5.0 liter motor, you will need to replace a total of 4 catalytic converters. For the driver side...

  • Is the Outlet Diameter Measurement Listed for Magnaflow Mufflers Or is it the Inner Diameter
  • The inlet/outlet/tubing diameters listed from Magnaflow are OD, outer diameter, not ID, inner diameter. If your tubing is 2.5 OD you will have to butt-weld the muffler to the exhaust tubing, the exhaust pipe will not slide into the muffler. Any muffler shop can do this. The MagnaFlow muffler, part # MF10416 is not designed to be a slip fit muffler. Your exhaust tubing would need to be designed for slip fit mufflers and have band clamps to apply sufficient pressure to seal the system....

  • What is the Direction of Flow for Universal Catalytic Converter # MF53004
  • I spoke with my contact at MagnaFlow and found out that the universal fit catalytic converter is reversible so it does not matter which way the flow goes. If you can tell me the year, make, and model of the vehicle i can tell you what converter options we have that will fit.

  • Will MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhaust System Part #MF16817 Fit 2011 Honda Accord V6 Coupe
  • The MagnaFlow Stainless-Steel Cat-Back Exhaust for the Honda Accord V6, part # MF16817, is specified by MagnaFlow to fit the 3.5L coupe for model years 2008-09. Installation instructions are included. My contact at MagnaFlow confirmed that their engineers have performed complete test fits for the 2008-09 model years but have not done so for the 2011 Accord Coupe. This does not absolutely mean that the system would not fit on your 2011 Accord but they are not able to confirm. It was...

  • Header Connections Needed to Install a MagnaFlow Exhaust System on a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro
  • As you have most likely realized, there will be some welding involved for the installation of the MagnaFlow Exhaust System, # MF15895, on your 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. You will need to find a flange that is compatible with your headers and have it welded to the front pipes that are included in the install kit, after they have been cut to the proper length. If your headers do not have a flange and you need to create one, you could use a ball flange. We have 3 sizes of stainless steel ball...

  • Recommendation for a MagnaFlow Muffler that has Agressive Sound for a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9 Liter
  • I spoke with one of my colleagues that has a MagnaFlow Muffler on his Trans AM with the LS1 350 engine and he says it has a nice aggressive tone, does not drone in the cab, and when you accelerate it is louder like most people want. The muffler you selected, item # MF12198 is the smallest Universal muffler that Magnaflow makes and on a larger engine, like the 5.9 liter, this muffler is going to be very loud and will drone. This muffler has a 3 inch inlet and two 2-1/2 inch outlets. The...

  • Cat-Back Performance Exhaust for 2004 Nissan Titan With 5.6L V8
  • Just about any aftermarket cat-back exhaust system for your 2004 Nissan Titan will produce a louder exhaust note than the stock system. The exact sound level and exhaust note will vary depending on whether the system you choose is a flow-through or chambered type. Generally flow-through exhausts like the MagnaFlow # MF15849 for the Crew Cab short bed Titan will be louder than a chambered system, but any other aftermarket products that are installed, such as an intake, also will have an...

  • How to Quiet Loud Exhaust Noise Inside the Vehicle After Installing New Dual Exhaust
  • Loud exhaust noise on the inside, with a deep drone, sounds like it could be a system with glass packs or another modified exhaust system that has a straight through type of muffler. If you switch the straight through mufflers with chambered mufflers it will take care of that issue. You will also want to check to see if there is a leak in the system somewhere, possibly ahead of the muffler and behind the headers. That happened to me once and it was horribly loud. A muffler shop should...

  • Using Exhaust Tips to Redirect Exhaust Away From Cargo Carrier
  • An exhaust tip that re-directs the exhaust gasses downward can indeed help protect items carried on a cargo carrier from excess heat. Using a carrier like # 63153 that has an angled shank to raise the carrier further away from the exhaust pipes also helps. If you click the provided link, you can see the various tips we have available. To choose the correct tip, you'll need to measure the outside diameter of your exhaust pipe. Most of the tips are weld-on applications, so you'd need to...

  • Does the Battery have to be Disconnected to Install MagnaFlow Exhaust # MF16500
  • You will want to disconnect the negative battery cable so that after you have the new exhaust installed, the computer can recognize the new part and calibrate itself as needed. You may end up having error messages and the vehicle may not run correctly if you do not disconnect the negative battery cable before installing the new exhaust. After installation, reattach the negative cable and start the car like you normally would. You may have to re-program the clock and radio stations but...

  • Error Code P0420 After Replacing Exhaust Manifold Gasket and Using MagnaFlow Catalytic Converter
  • The most common things that can cause a P0420 error code are bad oxygen sensors, engine coolant temperature sensor malfunction (does not seem likely given what you have said), leaking exhaust, or a bad catalytic converter. Since you had a manifold gasket issue, it sounds like there could still be a leak in the system somewhere. This can happen with gasket replacement if any remnants of the old gasket were still on the block or manifold when the new one was installed. It could also...

  • Direction of Exhaust Flow for Installation of the MagnaFlow # 23886 Direct Fit Catalytic Converter
