WOW! I LUV IT!!!

I just got my Magnaflow exhaust cat-back system put onto my Titan, and I just can't get over how good it sounds. I went with the signe side exit because Magnaflow claims some potential issues with putting a dul rear exit system on a Titan equiped with the towing hitch, and as I tow I was not interested in "issues".

The part number is 15848, I have seen these systems for as low as $418.55, which is one hell of a bargin in my book. (http://www.magnaflowplanet.com/product.php?productid=6145)

My system of course cost me $000.00 because it is the newest addition for Project Titan of Nissan Sport Magazine. :bouncy:

Observations-
- the system requires the B-pipe to be cut, I was not able to do this as my garage is now filled with cars in storage and did not feel like doing it in the snow, in the driveway. I was able to convince my local Cole Muffler to help me out, even though their policy is to not install customer provided parts. What helped me out is they advertise Magnaflow systems so they had a high confidence rating with the instalation of these products.
- the sound is a nice deep rumble, clearly a tad louder than stock but not what I would call too loud.
- when you get on the throttle this things gets a good deal louder, but it sounds sooooooooo good.
- at 2,000 rpms in 5th, about 72-73 mph which is my general expressway cruising speed the sound is just a slighlt elevated rumble, I still think the wind noise is louder than the exhaust note.
- at 1,700-1,800 rpms in 5th, about 65 mph the sound seems to be a tad louder, but still if you have the radio on, it is in no way obnoxious.
- initial impression is the reduced back pressure seems to keep the tranny from knocking down to a lower gear under light uphill loads. I have several hills I drive every day, and I hate it when I'm almost to the top and my rpms go from about 1,200 to 1,600 because the silly truck has decided there is too much load for the lower rpms.

I have to say, I could not be happier.

Glad you like it, too bad they didn't put the new 16780 on your truck. It's for the 2007-08 Titan but will fit on the 04-06.

Sounds good! I have heard many good things about the Magnaflow exhausts. Good choice! So you're in a magazine? That's cool! When's it coming out?

I have the Magnaflow on my S2000, and because the Magnaflow sounds so amazing on that I decided I should give them a shot at projecct Titan too.

Nissan Sport is the magazine putting on Project titan. I have been in several issues already as I started out with some of the things I had done before this opportunity; the LazerLite tonneau, the Prodigy, the Weathershield floor mats, and some simple stuff like that. I also had a brief little story that explained my delayed next story, that was because of a $4,500 exchange between Bambi and Titan. The latest artice is about the new Hankook tires that should be coming my way, and the powdercoating I'm doing on four 17" OEM Off-Road wheels I got for $200 from a member here. Next up I'm not really sure, could be the Hellwig helper springs or the Bushwackers or one of the many other things on my wish list...

quad, do you think they would be interested in the write up i did about the bed extender/overhead racks? it's all oem nissan gear.
Not really, we have lots of different project vehicles that take up lots of pages. I'm covering off on the Titan as the build goes forward. It's a nice offer and I thank you, but we are good.
