    I just need some more editing time but have more video coming ... I have 5 angles with the GoPro including interior on the headrest.

    ----------

    It is a minor sound change on the inside and no drone at any throttle position. Nice feedback and NOT invasive at all. I'll post video soon.

    I have used a Sedan kit on a friend's wagon and all that they had to do was lengthen the tips. You might want to call in to MagnaFlow's tech line and create some noise to let them know you are interested.

    I have given some thought to buying the parts from Magnaflow. I would remove the existing stock parts from our exhaust system and replace them with the Magnaflow parts. I would have to check the diameters to see if they match up.

    To replace the factory rear mufflers, the 2.25" in/out let mufflers should suffice in a 4 x 9 x 14 offset/center for the best sound. 4 x 9 x 11 will fit better but more interior noise will be observed.

    Don't replace the center section muffler in the wagon unless you replace with some kind of crossover (preferably X-pipe but a well placed H-pipe will help too) and add some 4" round resonators to the midsection. You could place a dual in/out let muffler but ground clearance becomes and issue with lowering.

    One of the nice parts of the MagnaFlow kit is the mufflers are less visible than the stock ones from the rear and the pipe profiles don't sit any lower.

    Sounds great, very different than the Borla Axleback system. This sounds deeper. When I checked the Magnaflow website, they do not have one available for AWD.
