I have been looking for exhaust options for my 2012 AWD Coupe.. I noticed magnaflow and alot of other manufacturers say "excluding AWD".. Has anyone here upgraded the exhaust on their 2012 AWD Coupe? If so, what were the results (power gains) and exhaust products used.
Sad to say still no luck for my 3.6 AWD Coupe. I have contacted Corsa, Magnaflow, and Billy Boat.. Same response... Maybe in the future.. Everyone seems to be focusing on the all mighty "V". I just don't see why a 3.6 AWD version is so difficult to make.
Why don't you go to a custom exhaust shop? Buy a muffler you like and have them make you a kit. It's a lot cheaper then you would think.
True, but it would be an un-tested system... I learned my lesson the hard way years ago... Never install a performance product unless there is Dyno proof showing a reasonable gain for the $$$$$ spent.. And If a company can't post a dyno sheet for their product then there most likely hiding something... Either no gain or very little gain. If Magnaflow, Billy Boat, or Corsa ever should decide to come out with a performance system for the AWD 3.6 Coupe/Sedan there will most likely be a Dyno sheet along with the in house test results.
Someone had pointed out that the earlier CTS, no matter if it is the 3.6 or 3.0 AWD would fit! It was stock like pre 09 (duals). That is going to be my route. Im going to order a magna flow kit w/ duals for my 11 3.0 AWD and see what happens. Good luck!
I made a call to MagnaFlow's engineering department. The EXCL AWD does not apply to models equipped with close coupled AND under body cats. If you look under your vehicle and see two small 4" diameter cats that are about 6" in length the kit I am running on my RWD Coupe will fit.
