Whats everyones opinion on maybe throwing a Magnaflow 14861 on my 2011 SX? Is it going to look or sound like a cheap ricer? Im new to all this and just looking for honest opinions.

I'm not sure about that specific muffler but I've had a single magnaflow on my '10 koup SX, it was 12865, and I loved it. I then upgraded to a cat back system and just didn't like it and now I'm sporting 2 magnaflow mufflers for my dual exhaust and don't regret it at all! I'd say go for it man!

NO, the Magnaflow mufflers do not sound ricey in any way, shape or form. I have a 2010 SX and my Magnaflow has a nice, deep, loud tone to it. I love it. It makes me want to upgrade my entire exhaust system!

Honestly, I though the TK cat back with the high flow cat sounded ricey for my taste but the Magnaflow(s), like EsEcks said, have a nice deep tone to them.

IDK if magnaflow is worth it to be honest. I know its cheap but I went with a universal muffler from ebay and my car has that deep tone and doesn't sound rice at all. if you want i could try and pot a video. i only paid 30.00 for mine, plus 80 to get it welded on.

It may not sound like rice, but it'll look like rice for sure. Fart can = RICE.
Especially if you have it sticking out from under the diffuser...

cheap ebay mufflers wear out in a year or less. fact. my magnaflow has 35k miles on it and is just a little louder than it used to be, still has a little life left in it. and thats 3 yrs for the average driver.

And that doesn't effect any warranty other than for the exhaust, or does it even do that as long as you don't touch the cat converter?

Yeah it was a quick fix untill I get a cat back if I do. But the badge was costume made. This guy can craft metal into whatever with the use of a computer so I gave him the stock badge for measurements and asked him to make them for me.

But I've heard magnaflow is a nice smooth tone. I doubt its ricey. Go for it if you wants.
