2 days ago? Really? The exhaust is rusting. Look at your pictures. My Magnaflow Catback exhaust is stainless steel. I've had it for 5 months and it still looks brand new.

First and foremost my wife wouldn't go anywhere near that rattle canned engine bay of yours. 🤪

But in all seriousness, I don't see how "your exhaust guy's employee" could screw that up. The Magnaflow catback comes as a complete set. See the image below. Everything comes packaged from Magnaflow all in one big box. There are no corners to cut. It just all bolts together. I think you are possibly being bamboozled. Those parts ARE NOT 2 days old. I can see where the muffler and the exhaust tip were welded to the pipes. There's too much corrosion on the exhaust tip and the muffler to be anywhere close to new.

My exhaust looks like this:

290529


The catback exhaust system above cost $780 direct shipped from Magnaflow with free installation by myself for comparison purposes. If they didn't charge you anywhere close to that, your probably being bamboozled.

I hope you can get things worked out. I'm interested to see pics once you do.

UPDATE YALL! After cussing this muffler guy out ended up swapping out the "Wicked Flows" muffler with Spintech 9000 series muffler...Considering I only paid $225 for a muffler/resonator delete with the muffler install I'm pretty happy!
Also just installed:
ZZP billet Westgate
ZZP Coil Pack Cover Plate
Forge Atmospheric BOV


Please grab some refreshments and enjoy the Movies.

Comments please!

I'm glad that you got what you paid for. Let me know how you like the wastgate actuator. I've had one for months sitting in a pile of parts for my engine build.

That looks about 70 F degrees warmer than where I'm at. It's 3 F degrees right now.

I'm confused. How do you know what those figures are if the turbo isn't on the car?

Is that a Dorman turbo?

Cool. My E85 kit came with injectors and injector harness adapters as they did not plug directly into the injector harnesses. Who did you get your E85 kit from?

ZZP DP>ZZP MIDPIPE CAT>20" MAGNAFLOW RES>9000 SERIES SUPER STREET SPINTECH MUFFLER...EXHAUST IS FINISHED AND SOUNDS GREAT.

AS FOR MY E85 KIT, I THINK IM GONNA GO WITH ZZP'S V3 BIG TURBO, THEN WORK ON SUSPENSION. I JUST INSTALLED THE FRONT UPPER STRUT BAR AND THE STEERING IS AMAZING...

WHAT DO U ALL THINK?

I think the exhaust looks nice. Didn't you say in a previous post that you bought a new turbo?
