I checked the part reviews and it says nothing for the MagnaFlow Exuast System, I was just wondering who has this system?, and how they like it?

Oh, and is the Pacesetter system as bad as some people make it out as?, and does that bad rep reflect on the headers too?

Am I getting commission for this Matt? :wink:

*cough* http://www.bareend.com *cough*

He has a mandrel bent 2.25" exhaust system with a magnaflow muffler and chrome 2.25" tip coming out soon.

If Matt sells it, it's THE good stuff. :D

BTW, what is the status on the BEMS exhaust? If I were to go turbo, is that about the size I would want? I thought I heard a while back the whole setup was gonna go for about $300?

If you go turbo you'd want to go 2.5" or even 3.0" depending on the boost levels. The whole set up was about 350 or so I think, 460 for the stainless steel system which is what I wanted.

if you're going turbo, you want 3" from the turbo all the way back. no questions asked. preferably no cat, absolutely no resonator, and straight through mufflers (ex: dynomax race bullets).

On turbo cars, back pressure is the biggest enemy. You want that exhaust to FLOW.

Generally, it's like this on all 1.8's. My escort and my friend's miata both noticed CONSIDERABLE increases in power running a straight header.

The status is its ALMOST done. TRashknight has been very patient with us. Justin and my Schedules have been conflicting a lot so we haven't had a lot of time to work on it lately. Right now we just need a finish trial fit. then finish welding (just tacked right now) then some paint and its done.

I'd agree with james on the Cat. I am in the crowd that thinks it better to improve the environmental controls as much as we can. I'm all for highflow cats as apposed to none at all.

Ok. If I were to go 3", would it be detrimental to get the exhaust before I get the turbo? Will I lose performance?

Hey guys I have just won a free instalation on my car for exhaust. I am wondering though if I should skip the resonator, and if 2.25" is big enough.

yes you would lose power. But it won't hurt anything. If you are planning to go turbo I'd either get the 3" or wait until you are ready to install it to upgrade the exhaust.

I'd skip the resinator. What is the point of two mufflers? just get one with the performance/noise level you like best.

Also 2.25" is best for a NA car.
