Question WHAT is the DIFFERENCE between MagnaFLOW and MagnaPACK????

I keep seeing threads about Magnaflow exhausts and Magnapack exhausts....

Within the same thread, people seem to be talking about (2) different products, but the same parts!

Can someone please tell me what is the DIFFERENCE if any between the MagnaFLOW and MagnaPACK systems????

Is MaganFLOW made by MagnaPACK and visa versa???? Are these the same companies, but (2) DIFFERENT exhaust systems being offered by them?????

I'm getting confused with these threads! LOL!

Also, what does the MagnaPACK exhaust pipes look like? Do they look just like the Flowmaster/Dynomax set up, where the pipe is a uniform size, such as 2.5" from the tip over the axle - OR is it "ballooned" at the tip, then thinner after the tip as it goes over the axle?

I've seen the MagnaFLOWs and I'm not too impressed with the "ballooned" tips, since the tips can be seen clearly from the sides on my Cobra (no ground effects to hide them like the 99+ Mustangs).

So - can someone PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAASE clarify any differences, or confirm if these exhaust systems are even different?????

THANKS!

I felt the same way when I first heard about these mufflers.

Magnaflow is the name of the company. There standard muffler is called the magnaflow, and the louder version is called the magnapack.

Magnaflow


Magnapack


Cat Back


Hope that helps.

Ok cool - thanks for the explanation! LOL!

One more thing, can you buy just the MagnaPACK mufflers by themselves, or do you hav to purchase the whole cat-back system?

I'm not crazy about their tailpipes/tips... UNLESS - are those for the 99+ Mustang GT/Cobra's??? I can see if those were for those newer Mustangs, because of the way the factory rear bumper cover/ground effects are made (to hide the rest of the pipe behind the tip)

Any ideas if the MagnaPACKs come with the COMPLETE SS pipe/tips like what Flowmaster/DynoMax has to offer for the 94-98 Cobra?

Any thoughts on this? Where is the best place to buy the mufflers, if possible?

Thanks again for the clarification!

The difference seems to be that the Magnaflows are loud when you get on them wheras the Magnapacks start out loud and get louder as you gas it. Not ever unbearable, IMHO.
