Finally got the Magnaflow in this morning. The shop I went to thought I was crazy putting it on a Taurus but nevertheless they got it on in under 30 minutes for only $50 so I was happy with that.

At first I was dissapointed because it is a bit loud and deep but after a couple of miles I started to like it.

I got to meet Andrew (MikeHawk) at our School, we had a 20 minute mini meet and we both recorded sound clips of our respective setups.

Overall, I'd recommend the magnaflow to those who want a real deep and mean growl. It's not as quiet as I was expecting but I'll get used to it.

On to the pics, video is the last link, we were filming in a garage so take that into account and the mic on my digital camera sucks. I'll try to get better recordings with a tape recorder or maybe a mic hooked up to a laptop soon.

Looks great!!!! I'm on my laptop, so listening to the exhaust on the piddly speakers won't do it much justice.

Is that really a problem? I mean, I can get anyones plate driving down the road.
What's the difference? ;)

Sounds nice. :thumb: Car looks great, too! B)

on a side note... what did you use to remove the "trim level" lettering from your car? It looks like you got it off really clean. :)

Looks great and sounds wicked. Where did you end up getting the Magnaflow from and what kind of price range was it? Very jealous...

Sorry it took so long to answer your questions guys, I just got through Hurricane Jeanne. Luckily no damage to my car but no power or phones. Writing this from work shhhh ;)

Jason8225:
To remove the lettering I used dental floss then WD40 then used clay bar, polish, and wax. Looks like it was never there.

hotwater:
I got the magnaflow from PeformancePeddler.com, look in my previous thread for the link. The muffler was 139.00, install was 50.

SEL2000:
My car is an SE Comfort it was a very early 2000 so it was before they had SEL's and such. Currently it has 36,000 miles on the clock. My paint looks pretty good, just did clay bar, cleaner, polish and wax about 2 weeks ago.

Just a final note on the muffler, its starting to sound a lot better after driving a few days, I'll post some new soundclips as soon as I get power.
