I just put these on my 2006 GT and love them. They have a crisp, deep sound that blows the stock exhaust away! I could not be happier!

Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with, and I’m taking a closer look at Magnaflow’s Magnapack Cat-Back exhaust fitting the 05-09 Mustang GT, and GT 500. The Magnapack gets its name from these two Bullitt style mufflers which are a throwback to the classic glass packs of the 60’s and 70’s hot rod era, and the sound you get is going to reflect that and you’ll definitely hear that classic muscle car rumble. The entire system features full stainless construction including the 2.5” mandrel bent tubing, the straight through design Magnapack mufflers, and finally the large 4” brightly polished tips. Getting this catback installed isn’t really that big of a job and should take you roughly two hours from start to finish using basic hand tools. Now let’s hear how the Magnaflow Magnapack Cat-Back sounds compared to your factory exhaust.

Curious Im going to be getting an 05-09 GT soon and I've been looking on your site for a long time now and been trying to piece together the best exhaust. My question is, can this combo work with this Magnaflow Magnapack Catback? ---> BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers & BBK Shorty Catted X-Pipe. Thank You


  • You shouldn't run into any issues bolting up the BBK shorty x-pipe with this Magnaflow Catback or any other brand catback. The main concern when doing an exhaust upgrade with long tubes is to stick with the same manufacturer. So if you are doing the BBK Long Tubes, you will definitely want to stick with the BBK Shorty mid-pipe, which will ensure the best fitment! From the mid-pipe back, you can pretty much pick and choose whichever catback best suits your style! If you want any tips or advice on different set ups, give us a call! We'd be more than happy help you out!

Question Resolved

do i need a x-pipe or h-pipe with this product. do i need a tuner when installing? the car has a 5speed manual.


  • No you don't need either when installing this catback. This Maganflow Magnapack will bolt straight up to the factory mid-pipe without any modifications. That being said, if you were to upgrade your stock mid-pipe with an h-pipe or x-pipe, you would increase your total gains. Installing this catback with the stock mid-pipe does not require a new tune. Hope this helps!

Question Resolved

Will this work with the MAC H-pipe for a V6 dual exhaust conversion? I have an 07 V6 premium with the pony package and am looking to add duals in my car. I really love the magnaflows and am hoping they can capture that deep, classic, throaty exhaust sound of classic muscle cars. I would like to pull the factory Y-pipe and add a MAC H-pipe, keep the stock cats and then add this on for the true dual exhaust.


  • Yes, the MAC Cut & Clamp Pro Chamber Mid-pipe (05-10 V6) can be installed on your 07 V6 along with this Magnaflow Magnapack Catback. It would reuse your stock cats and would be a great combination. Hope this helps!

    I wanted flowmasters orignally

    I own a 05\' V6 Mustang, and had a professional install the GT magnaflows to replace my single exhaust mustang. I wanted flowmasters originally, but my mechanic told to to get magnaflows as flowmasters sound raspy on the v6. I unhappilly agreed. I couldn\'t be happier, now that its installed. Quite at idle (good, if a cop pulls up next to you), but has a mean rumble when I rev. Prob gave me 10-15 hp.

    Simply Amazing

    This catback system is simply amazing. The sound is so crisp and healthy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants their car to sound amazing. I installed them with BBK long tube headers and a BBK x-pipe. I noticed that after about 2 weeks of driving around, the exhaust has quieted down. It definitely isnt obnoxiously loud, but sounds so good that it turns a lot of heads. Would recommend!!!

    Awesome sound. Awesome quality.

    Paired this with Magnaflow catted x pipe. It's loud and sounds great. My car sounds deep and muscley at lower rpms, but in the high range it sounds like a race car. Would recommend to anyone looking for a sound and performance upgrade.

    magnaflow exhaust

    Bought this with the catted x-pipe and the BBK throttle body. The install took about 2 hrs. WOW what a difference this combination makes!!!! This exhaust is so much better than the stock. Not real loud at idle but if you get on it, it really sounds great.

    Awesome Sound

    I had this installed on my V6 with the help of Magnaflow Cut and Clamp X-pipe. Gotta say this makes the GT's around me sound like nothing. Its always funny going down the road and beating them with my V6. Its an indefinite head turner. Only thing I dont like about it is that it hums at a really high pitch around 2600rmps and gives me a head ache sometimes. Although its definatly worth it.

    Magnaflow exhaust

    Fit and finish is awsum. This is the 2nd exhaust I've put on the car and 2nd set of mufflers the last mufflers were flowmaster outlaw series axle back mufflers so I do miss the sound of the flowmaster I do like the magnaflow it sounds more like my stock exhaust if I could afford the flowaster mufflers. But the fit and finish is what u expect from magnaflow if it's good enough for Chip. Foose it's good enough for my 2006 GT.

    Awesome Sound

    I bought this Maganaflow Competition Catback Exhaust because I wanted more Air Flow for my 2008 CS/GT Mustang. I also added this w/a Pypes X-Pipe, JLT Air Intake, and Tune. Man did this make a difference. It has a nice Deep Rumble Sound. Everything is bolt on so it was quite straight forward and easy to install. I would recommend buying one.

    My 2007 gt, which i bought used, was equipped with the magnaflow catback exhaust, part 15881. The sound and quality were good but i desired a deeper exhaust note. Today, i just had magnaflow magnapac catback, parts 15883 installed. If you are on the fence on what magnaflow catback to buy, stop debating and get the magnapacs! Deep tone and with my automatic no drone. Deep growl of quality!

    Not too loud!

    I have owned a few performance cars and like my exhaust really loud! This exhaust didn't really get very loud but does have a nice exhaust note. It does just like they advertise. Nice old school rumble but not too loud and no drone. The fitment was great. Had this installed in under an hour! If your looking for extremely loud get the Pypes or Roush cat-back. If you don't want to be too loud this is the exhaust to get.
