MagnaFlow "Black Series" Exhaust Pics & Vids?
 
I like the look of this by itself. Haven't found any pics of it installed on a jeep. Also looking for some sound clips of one installed if anyone has it.

This looks like a killer exhaust, hope someone chimes in with pics and sound clip. :popcorn:

Looks great, but expensive!

Giantsfan1984 04-08-2013 08:17 PM

i'm seeing prices of 500$ for that? yikes.

OrangeJeepGuy 04-08-2013 08:20 PM

I am a rookie. What is a good value throaty exhaust I could put on myself?

Giantsfan1984 04-08-2013 08:28 PM

i'm not trying to rain on your idea. it might be a good value. from my eyes, its a muffler with brackets and an input. i think dynomax makes something similar for much less.

Gibson has M/M black exhaust, video should give an idea of sound

If it was $350 or so I would jump on one as I think they are the best looking dual next to the Corsa DB.

Way overpriced for an axle-back, however, the FM ForceII is about the same price...

There is also a non-black Polished Stainless Steel one
It is almost $100 cheaper too! Another $100 and we are talking...

I personally don't like the way the Gibson (and don't like the sound) or the DynoMax when installed with the twisted muffler hanging down. The DynoMax also has the added bonus of one side hanging lower than the other, it is cheap tho...

Install is easy, a pry bar and maybe a BFH for the old one, 1hr tops

I would stick with Dynomax Super Turbo .. the original Walker OEM Corvair Turbo Muffler.

I agree... sounds like a ricer to me. Don't think you'll get the 'hemi v8' sound ever from a 3.6. Hope someone proves me wrong and I'll buy the setup :popcorn:

Nope... never.

I would simply run a 2.5" Super Turbo ... tuck and dump the tailpipe so it can barely be seen.

A 1965 Race Hemi came with single exhaust .. dumped in the rear.

Any 'cat-back dual outlet' system sound good? (No droning, look and sound better).

My head is getting filled with mods that I want to do now.

My Corsa DB on a 3.6, just a quick rev

I'm well past the age of needing a noisy Jeep. I was looking into a new exhaust strictly for clearance reasons...one that re-located the muffler in front of the axle. I almost bought one until I heard how they sounded. I ordered the muffler skidplate from Mountain Off-Road instead.

Barmanvarn 04-17-2013 08:56 AM

I'll go for anything if it helps me tuck the muffler up some. Hate the way that thing hangs down so far.

There are several "high-clearance, off-road" exhausts. Most of them re-locate the muffler. Every one that I heard was noisy and sounded as bad as every "non-offroad" design that I've heard.

Ill keep that in mind.

st1264 04-17-2013 09:42 AM

Yes, there will be more noise. Also the sound is a relative thing, one would love it, another hate it. I think the Rugged Ridge dual outlet exhaust looks good and sounds alright. Anyone buy that one?

I find the stock exhaust to be 'whiny' at higher rpm's. Think it looks and sounds like shit. Again, it's not that important. If people are putting on cat-back systems and it sounds worse, reduces gas mileage even more or lose torque I won't do it anyway. Just wondering if there is a "good choice" out there.

I just installed this exhaust on my 2013 JKU this weekend. Super easy to install once you get the stock system off. Less than an hour total. Sounds and looks great. Nice low tone on acceleration. Quiet while at cruising speeds.

Can you get some sound clips or video please? I had MagnaFlow on My Chevy Silverado when I had it and really liked it.

Looks awesome, sound clip PLEASE........

X2, want to hear how it sounds before I commit to it.

Is this black painted over stainless? or just aluminized painted black? I refuse to buy another exhaust that isn't stainless. My last aluminized system rotted out completely.

BigManAndy 06-11-2013 02:16 PM

I'd just be leery bashing the entire muffler or the tips on a setup like that. I mangled the stock exhaust tip on moderate trails. I'd rather get it out of the back completely and swap out the resonator for a muffler and dump it.

Oh and aluminized is JUNK. Old car of mine had a full custom exhaust, all stainless piping, except I went with Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers in the aluminized fashion and 2 upstate NY winters later the tops of them peeled back like a sardine can from rust. Loud enough to get me pulled over a couple of times. Thankfully they were like 35 bucks a pop so it was a relatively cheap repair. But I told myself if I ever went aftermarket exhaust it would HAVE to be a true stainless muffler.

It is stainless steel with a black ceramic powder coating. As for any worries re: bashing the exhaust tips/muffler, it all depends on what you are using your vehicle for. If you are going to be crawling, etc, a tucked system is obviously the way to go. For trail runs, camping, ski trips, etc, this will be no more in the way than the stock set up.

I had a Super Turbo muffler rust out... it was replaced for free! This was years ago, glad to see that DynoMax still warranties their stuff.
