    Magnaflow Cat-Back Exhaust - ATS 2.0T

    Just so you guys know, I just picked up my ATS from Magnaflow. They used my car to mock up a cat-back system. Should be setting pricing soon if not already.

    Now I just need a CAI. Who's got one that performs?

    I'd be interested to see what they did. Did they use one muffler or 2?

    Here you go guys http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PA11CIWXx1k

    To be honest I am not very impressed. My dad has an HHR SS and his stock exhaust sounds better than this!

    Sounds good. Exhaust tips would be sweet if they were similar to the stock ones.

    I wonder how their catback system attached to the car. Since there are no flanges or anything to do a bolt on install. After the cat it's all one pipe with welds.

    BTW here is my setup for your comparison reasons. Also magnaflow. Bear in mind I'm recording with a phone camera and not the best mic.

    It's all personal preference on sound. I'll admit that it was quieter than I expected but noticed that it has progressively gotten louder over time. Not sure why. For me if I wanted something obnoxiously loud I would have bought an STI instead. So this works for me.

    The exhaust is configured very similar to a G35 exhaust. One muffler, two separate chambers, two tailpipes. I'll post pics later.

    At the end of the day we are driving a Cadillac so it is a good thing it does not sound like a ricey Honda. I just expected a little more growl/throatier sound because it sounds a bit raspy right now.

    I hear ya...it is getting deeper and louder. I'll see if I can post another video on it. That was my car...so it'll be apples to apples.

    Very cool to see someone finally making a catback. Looking forward to more photos and pricing

    slip on connectors and butt clamps. Like every other aftermarket exhaust in the world.
