    Re: Magnaflow exhaust owners

    You should get more information from the people on specific's of their CTS ... There is a difference in exhaust design in the last generation that has 2 emissions certs so one vehicle has 4 cats the other has 2. Sound will vary based on which vehicle its installed on.

    I have a 2012 Coupe and can say the sound is great and experiences no drone. The note is clean with very little noise change observed inside.

    I have it on mine... And I used to live in Ontario too. I don't really have a problem with the drone as mine's a stick so I just keep it out of the "drone zone". It's really not that loud.

    The LFX configuration is much different in a number of ways granted. For instance, we have no exhaust manifolds! A large pipe off the integrated head, and longer duration cams advanced at idle, then retarded later with variable valve timing controls - this is SURE to alter the output sound, and reflected in the exhaust note!

    Re: Magnaflow exhaust owners

    STAY AWAY from Magnaflow!!! I installed #15754 cat back on my Silverado Z71 june 2005 mileage at install 42,757, the exhaust rusted thru at muffler and the saga starts on Nov 16th 2011- mileage at rust thru 96,901. I had to pre-purchase the replacement exhaust then the lifetime warranty was denied for "not being in original box" (I should have kept that since 2005- what was I thinking), I took pictures prior to removal (this was my only proof- and good thing I did) as they still didn't want to cover the exhaust, lifetime warranty but not covered for rust thru????, I finally got my credit on March 6th 2012. The replacement Magnaflo is allready covered with surface rust. I realize there are different grades of stainless, spend a little more and save the headaches that Magnaflow will cause you.
    We had Borla on another car cat-back 8+ year, still looked great when we sold car (no rust at all).

    I'm very happy with it - quiet for sane driving but it demands attention when you floor it!

    It's especially fun when some Melonhead tries to box you in on the freeway and you plant it to get out first - people look at me like " holy $hit! What just happened?" Hehe

    Hahaha I'm glad to see you liked it. I am for sure leaning toward the borla now over the magnaflow after seeing your video. Btw I love that blue. Very few cts' have that colour.

    I will put together a video of the 2012 Coupe with MagnaFlow if you like ... video never accurately represents exhaust as the camera is always playing with the gain changing the relative volumes and most audio on non-professional recording devises is not the greatest.

    Re: Magnaflow exhaust owners

    Hey guys,

    So I currently have a 08 CTS AWD 3.6L sedan, I'm looking to stand out from all these senior driven caddys in my neighborhood. I've searching for a Borla exhaust system, however I can't seem to find it online. Do you know the specific size or part number that fits my 08? The Borla website only has it up to 07 than skips 08 and goes onto 09. Why is that?

    -Thanks
