    Oh, okay. Liking the magnaflow? I loved mine on my v8 jeep. Sounds smooth and deep, especially after the cat was removed. I had flowmasters on a mustang, never again. The baffling rusted out in less than two years.
    And I just thought that it might have been done at ESH because of the straps in the hanger, they did mine like that for the mustang.

    Yea after day 1 I like it a lot. To be honest, I liked the sound of my Flowmaster as well. The only reason I switched because I thought it was hurting my truck more so I switched to the more straight-through design in the Magnaflow.

    Yea interesting way my muffler guy went with. But I asked him to see if he could make a hanger to "cradle" it for more support and I guess this is what he came up with :p

    :eek:

    Well, I asked him to "cradle" it near the tip and he said
    he didn't have a long enough hanger so this is what he
    came up with I guess :notsure:

    It's holding strong but if it acts up, I'll have him fix it :D
