Am crispy new at this mod stuff so bare with me. Am planning to get a MagnaFlow Cat-Back exhaust system for my '01 Ford Focus Sadan. I need some help in how it would sound like. If you have any suggestions or even if you can post sound clips I would really appreciate it.

I'm thinking about a Magnaflow too, but would love to hear one first. I did a search, but only came up with sound clips for other systems.

I have the MAGNAFLOW on my 2000 ZTS and I love it all the way. The installer asked me if I wanted the resonator installed as without it he said that it would be LOUD. I'm glad I had it installed, because when I changed my ICEMAN for a COOLFLO, it is pretty SWEET sounding when you get on it and would probably attract John Law without too much of an effort. I love mine and the lifetime warranty is perfect. Good luck.

FocusGirl22, welcome to the jet. I've had the Magnaflow on my car for several months now and am so impressed with it's sound that I just installed another one on my wifes Foci. I don't have a sound clip but I relate the sound to the british cars of the 60's and 70's. Kind of a nice mellow purr, not at all raspy but yet you can tell it's there, it's got a husky sound to it and absolutely no droning. I've been to several g2g's and have heard most of the systems out there and I think the magnaflow is one of the quietest. We just installed a Bosal on another jetters car a couple of weeks ago and it's definately louder then the Magnaflow. Just my .02 - Again, WELCOME

FocusGirl,

Welcome to the 'Jet - Awesome to see some more Girls gettin on the 'Jet - Its great!


You will be very happy with the Magnaflow - I have heard it many times on many different Foci - It does sound just how Dan described it!


BTW - The Magnaflow is only being offered with a 3in Rolled Tip I believe - Who are you going to order it from?

welcome to the jet focusgirl ( wow, women get alot of replies rather quickly around here..lol )

i have had the magnaflow on for a while now, i love the way it sounds inside the car and outside. I bought mine form Black Diamond. they sent it out same day and i had it in less than a week. as for the install, did it in the drive way in less than an hour. I didnt recieve any hardware with mine so i went to the local hardware shop and bought some ss bolts nuts and washers ( a can of pb blaster is a good investment too ) if you really want it to growel consider an air intake and an absolute must have is the 65mm tb.

As you've already read, the Magnaflow exhaust sounds great! Nice mello tone and not ricy! I have it on my 2000 zx3 along with a Volant cai and FC tb! A good investment no doubt!
welcome to the jet


I'll try and post a video/sound clip tomorrow!

[shameless plug]Just to let anyone interested know, I will be putting my 1st gen Magnaflow Sedan Catback with the huge tip in the classifieds in the next couple of days. I still have the original box and all the hardware. I never put it on my car, it's still new! I'm going to be putting it up for $250+shipping or maybe even less depending how much shipping will be. So check the classifieds in the next couple of days![/shameless plug]
