    Hey guys, i got a new muffler on my blazer. I was really looking forward to getting a stainless steel magnaflow. I had called the shop and everything because i have had a hole in my muffler. I get there today and they tell me they dont have any stainless steel magnaflows so i went with the delta flow 40 series. I cant keep my foot off the gas now but im sort of mad because it was more than what they quoted for a magnaflow. What you all think of the delta flows? (im just glad it was stainless steel or i would have been really mad!)

    I have V-Force on my truck, which are a rip-off of FlowMaster. I like them. I get worse MPG now, but only because I run the snot out of it to hear that cool sound! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Performance is better with a MagnaFlow, personally I don't like the sound of the delta flows. I would only go with a Super 40 or Original 40.

    I just recently went with a Super 40 and it sounds great, much louder then the MagnaFlow that I used for four years. Next time I'll go back to the MagnaFlow, I just wanted to change things up a little bit.

    I bet the shop neglected to tell you only the body of the muffler was aluminized on the MagnaFlow, the internals are stainless, and all MagnaFlow products have a lifetime warranty (with the exception of the XL series) so even if it were to rust (which it will not) it would be covered and you would get a new one for free.

    I have a lot more Flowmasters returned than I do MagnaFlow, probably like 10 to 1. If not more then that.
