Don't forget that exit pipes and tips can affect power, sound, and DRONE (not the new flying kind).



Just something to think about

Like the rest of the world, I'm simply looking for a little idle burble, WOT throat, and highway silence. Minute, insignificant performance changes are not a concern - only looking for sound.

Considering 4"x9"x18" in either configuration. To avoid any unnecessary discussion (other brands, other sizes), only one of these two I've linked are in the running:

Chambered
Straight-through


Just an FYI, I have a 2010 CVPI and am on my 4th exhaust configuration:

1. factory - just plain boring
2. cut factory mufflers out and welded in straight pipes - the drone was RIDICULOUS
3. cut the straight pipes out and welded in glass packs - the drone was annoying
4. cut out the glass packs and welded in a set of magnaflows - maybe just a bit louder than stock. I have the exact same magnaflows (11254) you are considering. They are a perfect fit when you cut the OEM mufflers out. Seriously, it is NOT much louder than stock at all - pretty disappointing.

EDIT: I see now that you have resonators on your LX. Honestly, it will probably be OEM quiet with the magnaflows. My CVPI didn't come with the resonators. Just trying to help you not have 4 exhaust setups like I did and still be disappointed.

Wouldn't hurt to contact Magnaflow and see what they suggest.

Check out the Thrush Turbo mufflers. They're cost effective, well made, and will give a nice tone with all the rest of the stock components in place. I've got a buddy with that setup on his Crown Vic and it's a nice, low, throaty tone and doesn't drone on the highway. Just a little bit louder than stock
