Cadillac CTS-V - kooks headers + magnaflow catback (stock setup)=problems
06-29-2009, 11:04 PM
I just put on kooks full length headers and I also have the high flow cats for them, also I have the magnaflow catback system. the magnaflow is way off as far as fitment. I was going to go to the muffler shop in the morning and have them cut up the x pipe but wanted to see if there is any better advice. the magnaflow is evidently for stock manifolds. unless someone in Dallas wants to trade the magnaflow x pipe for one made for Kooks!

Just replied to you over in the other forum, the stock exhaust would require the same cutting/bending that the magnaflow does, it is all the exact same piping (just resonater vs. x-pipe). Bring it to a muffler shop and they will take care of you in under an hour.

thanks for the tip...I was hoping that would be the case. Its semi quiet with the cats on it so I'll drive it like that. driveability is not great with the cam until I get it tuned but man I can't wait!

Semi Quiet??? I ran open headers for one mile with a stock LS6 and you have H/C! You must be used to some LOUD cars!

haha, ya I have had some loud ones in my past....I'm not saying its quiet, but the cats helped a lot. I think I should atleat be able to make it to the muffler shop without getting a ticket now!
