      Delivery was prompt and it looked even better than the picture on the website. I got it installed the very next day after it came and I am very pleased with the results. It sounds great!

      • Q:

        Just wondering how much if any modifications are required to install this system over OEM direct fit (Bosal) cat back components, ie. hangar locations, mounts, spacial fitment, etc...
        These Magnaflow components look like more tradition exhaust componets, which are quite a variation from say the VW rear resonator.
        I would like to install myself

          With reference to your question, the MagnaFlow Stainless Cat-Back System Performance Exhaust Kit for Volkswagen Beetle - Part No. 15648, Please follow the instruction to install; 1. Disconnect the vehicle's battery before removal of the OEM exhaust. This will allow the computer to reset itself with the new system, and prevent electrical accidents. If the OEM exhaust system is one piece, you will need to cut the tubing between the resonator and the torsion beam to remove the system from the vehicle. The tunnel cross-member will also need to be removed. Do not damage or discard the OEM fasteners or rubber insulators as they reuse to mount the new system.
          2. Install the new resonator assembly by fastening it to the catalytic converter using the OEM clamp. Leave all clamps and fasteners loose for final adjustments of the complete system. Install the new mid-pipe using the supplied gasket and fasteners and by fitting the welded hanger into the rubber insulators. Install the new muffler assembly in a similar fashion.
          3. With all components mounted loosely, adjust the system for overall aesthetics and clearance of frame & bodywork.
          4. Once a final position has been chosen for the new system, evenly tighten all fasteners from front to rear. The supplied 7/16" fasteners should be tightened to approximately 35-40ft-lbs. Inspect all fasteners after 25-50 miles of operation and re-tighten if necessary.
