Magnaflows were an OE option for the SAP...Corsa cat back is nice too...definitely no resonance with Corsa...not too loud but more than stock...

"old fart"? You mean not a "hey everybody I'm a kid please look at me" one? Magnaflow or Borla are two of the best with a pleasing sound.

I'm getting ARH headers with cat backs, x pipe and magnaflows. Getting them installed next week. Should not get any drone with that setup.

Also, while the exhaust is out getting a Spec Twin Disc clutch installed, B&M rip shifter as GMM rip shifter is nowhere to be found, external bleeder kit and GM slave cylinder.

Good luck with your exhaust system!

Just wanted to add my two cents in, I just got the Stainless Steel Magnaflow 11" body mufflers put on my 04 GTO a few weeks ago, and Im kinda glad I did. They fit in the factory locations on a 04, so most of the stock piping was used including the tailpipes and its not super loud, but can be heard with windows down or up if you bring it up into higher RPM's but when cruising down the interstate with windows up, and music on its about as quiet as stock. That's with a whole stock exhaust system besides mufflers. I think it will reach the sound level I want when I install LT headers and catless mids, and cut the tail pipes off then dump the exhaust right after the mufflers. I've got a lot of comments on the exhaust tone since I've had them, its not raspy, not a lot of drone and has a nice tone.
