(1) Magna Flow Catback
(1) 14mm Deep socket
(1) 14mm socket
(1) 10mm socket
(1) Allen wrench (provided with exhaust kit)
(1) Six inch extension
(1) 10mm wrench
(1) 14mm wrench
This should only take about 2
hours and was much easier than Ken and I thought
it would be. We did it on a lift but it can also
be done on your back in the garage.
Ok you will get the box of
goodies. Looks like a lot of stuff but not too
bad. Here are all the parts.
You get four clamps, an allen wrench which is
used to adjust tip length and all the pipes. We
felt that these clamps worked just fine. First
thing you have to do is remove the old exhaust.
It requires you to remove 4 14mm bolts. Two for
each side of the exhaust.
Next you will have to remove the
pipes from the hangers. It can be
tough. Spray a little soapy water on the
hangers and they'll slide right out.
Now you can slide the exhaust
Once the exhaust is out, remove the hangers for
the tailpipe. This will make it easier to install
the new exhaust. With that out of the way, this
is what you should be looking at. If you
don't see that, cut back on your beer intake.
Alright time to start bolting in
some horsepower. Its the same for both
sides. NOTE: The first two flanged pipes
are different lengths, the short one goes on the
driver's side and the long one goes on the
First install the flanged portion
of pipe to the H-pipe. Don't tighten it all the
way down because you'll need to adjust it later.
Next install the Muffler. Make
sure to put the clamp on before sliding it on the
pipe. Just get the clamp snug enough so you
can still move it around. Next install the
long pipe with the hangers. Make sure you put the
clamp on the pipe before sliding it on the
muffler. You should put the tip on now.
In the picture below you can see
how the tail pipe hangs. That's why you remove
the hanger and bolt it into place later after its
already attached to the tail pipe hanger which is
adjustable.. all you do is tighten or loosen the
When you have completed all of
the steps above, it will look like this.
Now that the exhaust is in, line
everything up how you want it and tighten
everything down. Make sure both sides are level.
Thats it! Not too hard of a
job. I have to admit, even though I'm a GM
guy it sure does sound nice and looks really good
on the car.
Oops! how did that get in
