K&N Intake
Magnaflow muffler

The intake made a dramatic difference
I really liked the pedal response
Went for the Magnaflow- improvement seemed negligable until I went back to stock- yuck! (had a rattle I was trying to cure)

If I put the magnaflow back on I know it will be an improvement
BUT- will there be much difference going from that to the Injen Catback system?

I don't wanna blow $530 on ebay if it's not gonna be much better...
Anyone been there? Is the change from a performance muffler to injen akin to the performance improvement from stock to performance or am I hitting the law of diminishing returns?

Also considered the RBB intake mod- any experience there on a Manual Transmission?

Thanks!

to your question about switching to an Injen, it all depends on how your exhaust was put together.

-what size pipping?
-mandrel bends?
-how long is the muffler?
-resonator? (not the stock one, aftermarket and the same ID as the pipping)

I doubt you will feel any difference switching to an Injen catback, unless your exhaust actually subtracted your current hp and torque.

Resonator is stock
Stock pipe was cut to fit aftermarket muffler (magnaflow- same size as stock)
Stock pipe diameter throughout
