Magnaflows or Magnapacks?

I need input form those that have experience with these. Are the Magnapacks too loud? Is there a significant difference betwen the two? What would you compare them to? I just don't want to go too loud. Thanks guys.

I just put on the magnapack catback with my x-pipe and it sound bad a$$. Louder than 2 chamber flows and keep getting louder. Ilove it.

You can visit www.staphonline.com for a few vid clips (multimedia section) of an O/R X-pipe w/ the Magnapack catback..

IMHO, the Magnapack sounds really wicked when mated with an O/R pipe, but might be a tad "too loud" for a daily driver....I'm sure the Magnaflows would be ideal if you are worried about drawing unwanted attention, but you can't go wrong with either catback. They are both high quality pieces! The droning of chambered mufflers doesn't appeal to me at all

Just my .02, goodluck

MagnaPacks with a Catted X-pipe sound great, I would say it isn't too loud, But if you get MagnaPacks on a catless pipe, it sounds like crap.

Thanks guys. I'm leaning toward Magnaflows with a catted X pipe. Don't want to piss off the neighbors when I come home late at night. I'm sure the sound will be better than stock either way.

I've got the catted X and Magnaflows. When I first installed them, I wished I'ld put the packs on. Now after 3,00 miles and a couple passes down the track to blow them out they are just right. And I like it loud. Ever get to Nashvegas? I'll let you hear them.

Also, check this site out, we have some Memphillians.

I have the MagnaFlows and I am very happy with them. Fit & finish are top notch and I love the way they sound, kind of quite at idle but really scream at WOT. If you do alot of driving I would recommend them.
