Magnaflow Offroad Pro Series Catback?

I am thinking on buying the Magnaflow Offroad Pro series Catback system for my 08 tacoma V6. Does anyone have the same application? If so, any opinions on sound and performance wise?

It's funny that they made an offroad series exhaust. That's just like my catback that I cut up so it doesn't intefere with my suspension.

Interesting. I'm guessing that the smaller muffler core could be on the noisy side. Too bad it's not 3" but it's probably not a big deal unless one is supercharged (maybe not even then).

Same reaction I had when I first saw it but it might sound good

bought it, sold it.

Edit: swapped the muffler for one that was not as loud. 14" round for 18" oval.

Even after I did some sound deadening in the rear of my cab, it was still to loud for my liking.

I bought it and love it! Its only loud when you put your foot into it... over 2000 rpm's is when it gets loud....other than that, its a nice low throaty exhaust....

So, if you have lead foot, probably not for you, if you take it easy on the gas and want the occasional sound and clearence.... great exhaust!

Hmm, seeing as I drive a 6 speed and change gears around 2500 rpm, should be nice and loud then!

Should sound good with that 6 speed man! Give it a few hundred miles to break in (a tank of gas or so) to get the real sound. Mine changed tones slightly to a deeper, throatier tone after a week or so... like it a lot!

Jaydirt: was it the magnaflow 18 oval from the 16625 kit? and how was that after?

I'm considering my options and your not the only one who had noise issues, some added resonators. I like the clearance of the 17115 kit, especially for a spare but I dont want unpleasant cab noise.

VancouverTaco: how did your install go on the 6 speed?

I love the exhaust. It is a little load at about 2500 rpm on the highway but overall not too bad. Has a really nice sound especially with the 6 speed

Alright, thanks.

For future readers info: I called magnaflow and asked a few Q's . the difference between the Direct fit (16625) and the Offroad Pro (17115)

Both should offer HP and torque gains. The offroad will be louder, the main reason for this is the dump is closer to the front of the vehicle which can bounce sound off the pavement and cause a noisier cab. Some have added resonator to their system, Perferated core resonators limit flow minimally but help sound, if that hasn't quieted your system down enough a louvered core resonator could be used. they can limit exhaust flow by 5% but are more effective at sound deadening.

Direct fit has an oval shaped 18 inch muffler, Offroad has a 14 inch round. According to Magnaflows Dyno test the Direct fit will offer 1 or 2 extra torque gains VS the Offroad adding 1 or 2 HP gains over the direct fit. In BC you may run into problems with Aircare if using the Offroad/ I assume similar for California

I'm going with the Offroad as my trucks a good ways from the ground and aircares on its way out, if anyone asks I can post a sound video once its done.

(perferrated core vs louvred core)

So because the offroad pro turns down towards the ground It makes it loader in the cab? At a certain rpm I have to plug one of my ears while driving lol

I have this exhaust on a 2009 AC V6 Auto.

Here is the deal...

1. The clamps it comes with are crap. Toss them immediately and go kick in for the U-bolt type. Preferably stainless.

2. It is a "fart cannon". It has a low growl at low revs and a Fast and Furious whine at higher revs.

3. Seems like there is not enough back pressure now. Initial pick up may be a little sluggy but there is a band there in the 3k range that is nice.

4. The compact design is awesome. However that is nothing that a hacksaw can't make.

5. Your neighbors will be pissed that you have it.

(This is in combo with a Volant CAI. Not the ram air.)
