Default Magnaflow cats and x-pipe on stock manifolds? any opinions?

magnaflow sells a kit for direct fit cats that fit the factory manifold, as far as sound goes, it should make my car lowder and add a X-pipe as well.

im never adding headers to the car and mainly looking for alittle more noise and maybe a few hp as a bonus

anyone run this set up?

I have Corsas on my Vette but Magnaflows on my F150. They are mellow sounding and I just had a weld break on one of the hangers and Magnaflow sent me a replacement after I sent them a pic of the broken part. Pretty good customer service IMO - about a 7 on a 10 pt scale.

I have the Corsa Pacecar and love the sound. I think I would look into the Magnaflows if I would have seen this article before I bought the Corsas. I would love the hear the Magnas in person on a C5.

They show almost 16 HP gain with Magnaflow cat back and x pipe. That incredible!
