    Magnflow cat back drone issue on '05 6.0 litre

    Greetings,

    has anyone installed the Magnaflow cat back exhaust on the 6.0 litre escalade?

    There is a severe droning of exhaust at 2000 - 2400 rpms, Magnaflow stated there is an issue with the exhaust valves and that there is nothing that can be done, except for replacing to stock configuration.

    Thanks,

    Stratos

    My good friend installed it on his 04 and it was the worst drone I've ever heard. He called Magnaflow but didn't get much out of them. Riding in his once made my decision much easier to spend the money on Corsa.

    yes,

    Magnaflow has a bad attitude, their repsonse is we have a Technical Service Bulleting regarding the 6.0 litre.

    Is the Corsa stainless steel?

    Had the Magnaflow, endured the drone til the system needed replacing ; went with the Cherry Bomb Votex muffler incl. 2-1/2" duals nice sound , decent flow & best of all no drone! yeah, it's not stainless but installer claims I should get four years out of the system.

    I've got the Magnaflow cat back on my 02 Escalade 6.0, and the drone SUCKS. I called Magnaflow also and got no response other than "with performance exhaust there are trade offs....." I'm very dissappointed with Magnaflow, especially since this is my 4th system I've put on my vehicles in 3 years.........first complaint with them. Now I'm going to join the Corsa group.
