    I am going back to my magnaflow mufflers, and I am going to dump the exhaust. I am tired of the way the tailpipes look on the car.


    What did you put on the end of the muffler to turn it down?
    Did you turn it down at all? MAybe turn it at an angle towards the side of the car?

    I looked at all the tips at the parts store today,and all the 45 deg. bends are crush bent. No point in doing that after I have put a full mandrel bent system on it.




    *****Paul is going to be soooooo happy when he hears I am ditching the tails!!!! :banana:*****

    O THANK THE LORD

    My tail pipes go over the axle and then come back down, and i unbolted them after the rear axle on the way down, dumps are bassically a 45 degree, or 90 degree curve you put on the end of the muffler to point the exhaust down to hit the ground, you will be ESTATIC once you do this and start it up.

    I thought you would be happy :) The magnaflow tails dont unbolt, and I dont want to cut them...Ill need them again once a year for inspections.

    I guess I just need to try and find a 45 degree bend that isnt crush bent?

    ive posted up in the visual body shop asking someone to do it, and nothing lol.

    what do you mean crushed bent

    mandrel bends are achieved through the heating of the piping before bending whereas crush bent just literally mean that the piping is bent entirely by force. However, the main difference between mandrel bent and crush bent piping is the ease of flow. Mandrel piping keeps the pipe at a constant cross-sectional area throughout a bend which makes exhaust flow easier.
    You can see the difference the crush bent looks stretched or wavey in the bends.

    This is what i have on my 79 f 150. [​IMG]Summit and jegs also have all kinds of different turndown tips such as these:

    Lots of choices (very few differences) and they will not hurt flow like the crush bent does
    I think i should have went with magnaflow instead of bassani. I am going to get an offroad h and see what that sounds like :naughty:

    F dumps, I'd go with Electronic cutouts FTW!

    It has nothing to do with being loud. I cant stand the way the magnaflow tips look. One of them wont stay on the hanger either, no matter what I do.

    Magnaflows are fairly quiet crusing mufflers,and I will have high flow cats too.

    But that has nothing to do with the sound waves bouncing off the ground and being trapped unerneath your car you will see what I mean when you do it ;D

    no tails here either but after a while the idle gets to you too deep of a tone
