I have a private muffler shop with a good rep in mind for the custom installation but I am just worried about the noise. S80's are sooooooo quiet stock, so I definitely want to give it a nice, deep tone.
I just don't want it to be too loud, since I do a pretty good amount of highway driving. Will Magnaflow mufflers be a bit too loud with this setup or what do you all recommend? Should be fine, I'm a Magnaflow fan. If you go with a cat, make sure it's metal core.
Be sure the piping is mandrel bent and good luck. I'm still learning the he technical aspects of it, so bear with me. For the catback, are you saying two 3" for each side? I don't know the exact mechanics of it but would going from 2. And I'm guessing that I would just have two Magnaflow mufflers, one for each side.
How did your stock setup have two mufflers and what do you mean with adding three? Well, the Vivaperformance downpipes are a bit too much money for me so I'm just looking for something custom.
But if I was going to do a custom job, you would recommend this then? If this sounds okay, what kind of Magnaflow muffler would you suggest? When I'm just browsing through their website, the amount of mufflers they have is a bit overwhelming.
I'm looking at the stainless steel with tips street series:. I spoke with the guy at my muffler shop and he said that the only problem is fitting a muffler in the channel in the middle. He didn't think that there were any Mangaflow mufflers that could fit into that space without being too low the stock one that is on there is basically flattened at the bottom. I see Hondas, Acuras, Eclipses, etc.

I have to check on the actual dimensions again but you said that an 8 inch muffler would be okay in the channel? If so, do you have any links or ideas of one that would fit? I know that EST and Heico have exhaust systems for the S80 so they must fit it in somehow without being too low, does anyone with these or other exhaust systems on the S80 have the dimensions of the muffler that goes down the channel?
By the way, did you find a somewhat different tranny that could fit the S80? Or did you just order a stock one, and how much did it cost you? Performance Modifications Search In.

If you are told at the garage after doing a maintenance or MOT that the chassis is rusted then of course you are very frightened.
The rust is created by the design of the chasiss rails that Mazda has chosen. The Mazda MX-5 has 2-layer chasiss rails, which is good for the firmness in case of an accident and the stiffness of the chassis. Let me start with how, in our view, it absolutely NOT should be repaired. With this method you postpone the problem and you will most likely have problems next year during the MOT. This is a bad patch and not a solution.
Partial repair: Cut away the rusted part and weld a new plate into it. The rust has probably been largely replaced but again it is not the solution. There are still parts with 2-layer steel that will rust through sooner or later. As indicated, it is important that all rust is gone and it cannot come back.
The solution is to remove all the 2-layer steel from the front chassis rails and replace it with a repair panel which, just like the Mazda MX-5 NA, consists of only 1 layer of steel. With this rust repair repair of the chassis rails we start by disassembling the front bumper, crash beam, headlights, wheels, radiator, power steering and many other things that get in the way.
During the repair, the engine can stay seated but many attachments are removed. Next, the engine and fuel lines will also be packed with a flame retardant welding blanket. Safety is key with this repair. After most of the parts are disassembled and the important parts are packed, the cutting can begin.
This can look rather intense because a rather large piece will be cut out of the chassis rails. What is often even worse than grinding is the rust that seems to be fine from the outside but is already quite advanced inside. Then everything needs to be cleaned properly so that it is free of old coatings or wax layers. These easily catch fire and also make for a bad weld.
Again, you have 2 ways to do it. A weld where you put the panels over each other or put them against each other with a gap of about 1mm in between. We always choose the last option to have good welding, nicer looks and the steel is only 1 layer thick everywhere.
To spread the heat during welding, short welds are made each time and then you jump back to another point. This prevents warping and there will be less heat in the paint layer of the engine compartment.Volvo XC70 T6 AWD KT4 Performace downpipe test/ exhaust sound test
After this, the weld can be sanded flat with a flap disc on the right-angled grinder and finally the most important step; apply a good moisture-resistant coating both inside and outside Inside the chassis rails we use Dinitrolthis is a hollow space coating and on the outside a robust Dinitrol anti stone chip coating.
