Default Magnaflow 18 questions

I've listened to clips, read many reviews and think I'm sold on the 18" Magnaflow. I just have a few questions -

Do I just need the muffler to get that beautiful sound and if so are there really any performance gains?

Are there any local or semi local members that can suggest an install shop?

Thanks Ramheads!

Little to no performance gains. Maybe some throttle sensitivity/response gain. But yes just a muffler swap can give you the sound.

Installing a muffler like the Magnaflow 18" will give you some performance gain but to maximize it's potential, you should also put in an aftermarket CAI along with it. The better your system breathes, the more performance you will see.

I was looking for the same kind of shop here in the Des Moines Iowa area. I just started calling around and found a shop who carried the mufflers in stock. Good luck!

(and by the way, Ball State is in Muncie, Indiana...just northeast of Indianapolis)

Thanks for the responses everyone

Ball so hard university is a Baltimore Ravens thing, really thought I had Baltimore listed in my profile.

I do have the S&B cai so wanted to give all that extra air an outlet. Any Maryland, DC or VA members that can recommend a location for install or share any tips would be great Thanks again.

I'm running the 18" Magnaflow muffler ad love it! My setup current is Edelbrock Shorties > Stock Cats > Magnaflow Y-Pipe > Duals exiting behind rear tires (Rumble Bee so I have the cutouts in the ground effects).

If your getting the Mag Muffler I would get the Y-Pipe as well. It's worth every penny IMO.

The Mag gives a nice idle and really growls good when you step on it. The Mag and Borla are the only 2 mufflers that are worth anything on the Hemi to me.

I found my shop through Yelp. They had almost a 5* rating (theres always one person that thinks they were screwed over at any shop). I would recomend this since exhaust shops seem to be popping up on every corner.

Good luck!

If you wanna drive down to Stafford, VA I have a very reputable exhaust guy. I'm about 1 hour 45 min from you. But I'm sure you can find a shop closer. Google custom exhaust shops in Baltimore.

My dad is form Baltimore, I got the ball so hard reference

You can check out HHP in Delaware. I dont think its that far from you, maybe an hour and a half to 2 hours and they might be able to do the install. I would give them a call first though to make sure but they are supposed to be a really good shop in that area.
