HP Gains I have a 2012 Mustang V6. Realistically what can I expect to gain in extra HP?


  • It's difficult to say. What other bolt ons do you have? Elevation? Driving habits? Definitely you'll gain HP, my estimation at least 10. Less restrictive, you'll also notice better MPG, performance and of course- SOUND!

    Rattling and squeaking issues

    I like the tone of this exhaust. Outside of that I am not satisfied. If you want to get an aftermarket exhaust get it done at a shop and have them get the part. In my case, I purchased from American Muscle and had a mechanic shop install the exhaust. After a few months, the exhaust began to rattle and squeak when driving over bumps. I have since taken my car to Ford three times and had them try to fix it. I paid the same install price a SECOND time to have Ford align the exhaust. Now, after getting my car back today Ford tells me that there is an issue with a sleeve/clamp continually loosening. They recommended contacting the manufacturer. The problem is obviously the exhaust unit. However, it will cost me hundreds to have Ford or any shop take the unit off and either put on a new Magnaflow exhaust or my old exhaust since the part was not purchased through them. I love American Muscle. They have great prices and free shipping. However, I cannot see myself getting a large part like this again online. I now have a $700 rattling/squeaking exhaust (excluding the hundreds I paid for install/reinstall). I have spent thousands at American Muscle and I wish I could get a refund. I cannot afford to pay to have the old exhaust taken off and a new one installed. In summation, I would not purchase this large part again.

    What stock should sound like...

    First the install, like Fuel said in his review, a lift would be ideal but it can be done with a floor jack and two good jack stands. I had to put the jack stands on the highest setting and barely got the stock exhaust pipes out. The install was easy and straight forward, but ensure that the mid pipes are positioned properly or else when tightening the clamps it will cause your mufflers/tips to not line up with the cutouts in the rear bumper properly. This happened to the passenger side and we had to use a few washers to lower the rear hanger for proper fitment. As far as sound and performance, this exhaust sounds great. At start up it sounds nice and then quiets down to almost stock level after the car warms up. At cruise it is barely louder than stock, however punch and it sounds awesome. Definitely no popping or annoying ricer sound, only a nice growl. As far as performance, I think it might have added some power paired with the Airaid intake that I previously installed. Overall, I'm extremely happy with the exhaust and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants an exhaust thats louder than stock but not annoyingly loud with decent performance gain. Should have come from the factory this way.

    Love the sound, but

    The fit is not perfect. The shop had to cut the hangers and re-weld them as there was no way to have a gap of 1/2 inch from the plastic rear-end. Maybe i happen to have a bad batch, who knows. Also, the pipes after the cat, are AWEFULLY close to the axle, be careful to angle the pipes correctly as they will rattle against the rear axle. Otherwise, the sound is great, the tips look great. They are quiet while cruising, but can get very expressive when pressing the gas pedal. Perfect for me. They won't crackle/pop until you do the full headers (BBK LT)

    Poor Construction

    Once the exhaust was on it sounded great. However getting it on was an issue. The welded hangers, weren't welded on straight. The passenger side was welded at in inward angle and the drivers side wasn't welded on at a ninety degree angle. It took an extra hour or so to just adjust the hangers themselves. I expected better craftsmanship them that. I actually had to a cut a part in order for them to attach on. Sound is good, quality not so good.

    Easy to Install, Sounds Great

    It was harder to get the OEM exhaust out than it was to put the Magnaflow stuff in. I had originally installed Pypes mid-mufflers into the OEM pipes, and hated the sound (plus the muffler shop that did the welding really did a terrible job, and the system had a rattle in it that was driving me bonkers. It also sounded like a Honda to me at WOT. Then I installed some BBK long tube headers, and that made everything behind the x-pipe sound even worse. Combined with the BBK headers, this system has a great sound. Since the tips are resonator tips, I didn't need to install my Vibrante resonators at all. My only complaint is that the tips hit the top of the exhaust opening. I'm going to take it to a muffler shop and have them do a better alignment on it. Install note - I had to install the driver's side front muffler hanger onto the muffler and then install the assembly into the car. It was easier this way. I gave four stars for bank/buck because I think the system costs too much (actually all cat-back AND axle-back setups cost too much). Once again, the sound is awesome.

    Nice Exhaust thats not overly loud

    The magnaflow street exhaust is a good choice for someone who wants an exhaust note that sounds better than stock, but is not overly loud and won't attract any unwanted attention (from the fuzz). Install wasn't too bad, I did the install with the help of a friend, and it probably took about 4 hours. Having a lift is not a necessity, but it would definitely help cut down on the install time. I used a heavy duty jack and 2 jack stands and I was able to get the over axle pipes off, but you need to jack the rear of the car up pretty high or else you wont be able to twist them out( probably 18 inches or so). The hardest part was getting the factory mufflers out. Make sure you have some wd-40 and a rubber mallet to knock the stock axlebacks free. After the stock pipes were free, the magnaflows went in without much effort. In my opinion going with the full catback system is the only way to go. It increases the diameter of the piping from 2.25" to 2.5" for less back pressure, and helps cut a few pounds from the car (the stock exhaust is noticeably heavier than the magnaflow system). Also I noticed after removal that one of my stock pipes was squished a bit (which is bad for exhaust flow) After the install, I was very excited to start up the car to hear the difference. It now has a nice deep rumble. Its quiet when driving with a light foot, but when you punch it you can hear a nice throaty roar. (drive with your windows down and you will definitely hear it.) There is a tiny bit of drone in the 1.5k-2k rpm range, but not unbearable like I've heard from those who have the competition version of this exhaust. Just turn your radio up a bit and you wont have a problem. The only downside I've found with this exhaust is that the tips pretty much touch the rear bumper cutouts for the tail pipes, causing the rear bumper to vibrate, which causes my rear license plate to make an annoying noise. I fixed this by adding 2 more screws in the lower part of the license plate bracket. I'll probably play around with the exhaust this weekend to see if I can get it to hang a bit lower to stop the vibration of the rear bumper, but after adding the 2 screws the annoying sound is gone. Overall, I am glad with my purchase.

    Great sound!!

    Great sounding muffler. I have the bbk LT headers and an off road x-pipe and it sounds just like i wanted. It is a little raspy on the high rpm range but I believe that is the off road x-pipe. The fit and finished is good but the mufflers sit a little high. I might need to do some modifying to the hangers to get them to sit in the right place. Other than that everything was great. It was about an hour of work with a lift.

    Deep Tone

    The Magnaflow Street Catback Exhaust gives my car a great deep tone roar. I really happy i got it and was good price thanks to american muscle. It aslo has a nice shine to the muffler tips at the back of my mustang. It isn't to loud as the Borla ATAK but it meets my sound level. Compare to the stock mufflers i had taking a few pound off with the magnaflow mufflers. They are freeflow mufflers so i can see a bit power increase. As for when just cruising there is a bit of droning but crank a little music and you wont hear it at all.

    Worth Every Penny

    Everything about it is great. The shipping was quicker than I expected and the exhaust looks great! What really suprised me me was the engraving on the tips which look awesome. The only problem I have is that the bigger tips are right up against the bumper causing a rattling which is annoying but that might have to do with the installation. Definetly worth the money and the power gain is definetly noticeable. The sound is way better than the stock exhaust. The video doesn't show how good it really sounds.

    Amazing MagnaFlow Exhaust

    Wow! This exhaust is perfect for someone who doesn't want an annoying, droning exhaust. It sounds really good and was really easy to install. Just make sure you have a jack and a couple stands. I am very glad I purchased the street exhaus over the competition. My friend has the competition series on his 11 v6 and many people agree the street sounds better. The street is not as loud but the tone by far is better. If you are stuck between the street series or the competition series like, I was, I would really recommend getting the street series.

    Great Tone/Not overly Loud

    Hey guys, this is an easy install but beware. I had the car on ramps and there was not enough clearance to get the straight pipes around the rear axle and off the car. You need a lift. So, don't do what I did and get all the way to the straight pipes only to realize you can't continue because the car is not on a lift...otherwise these sound great and I can feel a difference in the top end. I hate the loud, obnoxious, headache inducing exhausts that are on the market and this is certainly not one of those. Great tone, NO DRONE WHAT-SO-EVER. If you want a sexy sounding exhaust, and not an annoying one, get this.

    I will start off by saying that this system surpassed my expectionations by a mile! After weeks of research i kept coming back to this product and could not be happier with my purchase. The loudness level is exactley what i was looking for a nice loud muscle car roar, that is deep and throaty. Ive heard some of the "loud" versions of systems such as the Borla ATAK series and in my opinion it sounds like its trying way to hard to sound "bad a**" this system just delivers! As well as volume the exhaust note is perfect, like i said deep and throaty. You loose that annoying hallow sound of the stick system....and the best part is there is NO drone that i have experienced when cruising. Really blew me away that they were able to achieve the best of both worlds. The fit and finish on this is also incredible. Top notch materials and parts that required no tweaking at all for install. The tips look amazing, larger than stick and really fill out the bumper cut outs to give it that aggresive and finished look. As for power gains it is hard for me to say because i installed an Airaid CAI at the same time. I will say the combo of the two makes your v6 jump right in there with the V8's. VERY noticable power gains throughout the whole spectrum. So overall if your looking for an aggresive deep sounding exhaust that will deliver good peformance gains, than look no further!
