Ok, let me start by introducing myself! My name is Tom, and I have a 2008 Impala SS. :beer:

Ok, so I just joined here for many reasons. But number one reason, I wanted more options/expense wise, cat-backs for our cars, as well as catless downpipes. I have a company I have used before, they make EXCELLENT exhaust systems. Here is my problem. When I contacted them about my car and wanting to purchase a system from them, they said I need to gather 10-15 people and they will make a kit for our cars.

This is the company: Mandrel Exhaust Systems - Featuring Mandrel Bends - Catback, Downpipe

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!! Email them and advise them you would like a catback for your 2006 and up V8 Impala's too!!!

They use magnaflow, borla and corsa mufflers and then use there own piping. Catbacks usually got for $300 shipped!!! That totally beats paying $800 for name brand magnaflow kits.

I would be so down if I didn't already have a magnaflow. Im sure if you could get some clips of what it would sound like you could have some luck. Maybe ask that company if they have any other GM 5.3 V8 mufflers and search for sound clips of those or see if they have em

No sound clips available because they don't make one for our car yet. However, it would sound the same as the company's out there now(magnaflow, borla, and corsa) because they use their mufflers, but make the rest themselves. And yes, this is would be a complete cat-back system with tips included. I don't work for this company. I just really want an exhaust and they sell them for a great price!!! Name brand mufflers without name brand prices!!!!

If they use the same kind of piping as the big companies they'll sound the same, but if they use cheap shit and slap some MF's on there they'll sound different.

Just sayin




It does sound like a good deal though.

Yes, stainless steel tubing will be an option. They also use aluminum for cheaper price. However, they do great work and do not use cheap crap

You could always go to a shop and have them fab one. That's what I had done. $300 installed.

Seems sketchy.. what part of chicago are you from
How the hell is it sketchy???? I'm from just outside of Chicago in the northwest suburbs. I am not selling these exhausts. I am trying to rally up 10 guys who want a cheaper option for a cat-back because I refuse to pay $800 for a magnaflow exhaust. I submitted the link to the shop that makes the exhaust in my first post.

Let's not get hostile, everyone has a right to be skeptical. You came on here and then post this as your first post.
