Magnaflow vs. MBRP Exhaust Systems

Event Date
May 9, 2018

If you're looking for ways to add power and torque to your ride, an aftermarket exhaust system should be one of the first modifications on your list. Not only do they improve your engine's performance, they also dramatically change the sound of your vehicle. In this article, we examine the details of each manufacturer's exhaust systems to help you make the best choice for your truck.

Magnaflow Exhaust Systems

Magnaflow carries a wide series of exhaust systems to accommodate daily drivers, off-road vehicles, racing vehicles, and more. Most Magnaflow exhaust systems are categorized according to the driving style or configuration of the vehicle in question.

When choosing a Magnaflow exhaust system, you will sometimes be prompted to choose which exit style you prefer. Choose rear exit if you want the exhaust to terminate at your rear bumper, or side exit if you prefer it exit from the side of your vehicle.

Performance Series.

Performance Series

Also known as the MF series, this exhaust system is designed to create a balance of interior resonance and exterior sound. This efficient design creates a slightly more aggressive tone than OE exhaust systems.

  1. Sound: Mild to moderate
  2. Construction: Stainless steel
  3. Warranty: Lifetime
Off-Road Pro

Off-Road Pro

Ideal for a truck that will spend most of its time on tracks and trails, the Off-Road Pro series is lighter than other designs. It is also designed to increased ground clearance and to accommodate modified suspensions.

  1. Sound: Moderate
  2. Construction: Stainless steel
  3. Warranty: Lifetime
Competition Series.

Competition Series

This design incorporates elements intended to maximize power and exterior noise: larger pipe diameter and a straight-through muffler design. The results, while impressive, are so loud and aggressive that they may not comply with local or even federal noise requirements. For this reason, this system is recommended strictly for racing applications.

  1. Sound: Aggressive
  2. Construction: Stainless steel
  3. Warranty: Lifetime
Rock Crawler.

Rock Crawler

This series is mostly found for Jeep Wranglers. It's designed to accommodate aftermarket rear bumpers and provides maximum ground clearance for vehicles that will see extreme off-road conditions.

  1. Sound: Aggressive
  2. Construction: Stainless steel
  3. Warranty: Lifetime
DPF Series.

DPF Series

The DPF series is designed for vehicles equipped with diesel engines and extends from the diesel particulate filter. It features intercooled tips to reduce exhaust gas temperatures. It is available in stainless steel, black powder-coated steel, and aluminized steel.

  1. Sound: Moderate
  2. Construction: Stainless steel, black, or aluminized steel.
  3. Warranty: Lifetime (stainless, black), one year (aluminized).

MBRP Exhaust Systems

With eight different exhaust systems available, MBRP has choices to suit any budget and driving style.

MBRP Pro Series.

Pro Series

Stainless steel construction ensures this exhaust system can withstand years of use. Available in single and dual exit styles for gas and diesel engines.

  1. Sound: Moderate
  2. Construction: T-304 stainless steel
  3. Warranty: Lifetime
Installer Series.

Installer Series

Designed for truck owners on a budget, the Installer Series is made with 16-gauge aluminized steel and delivers similar performance and features as the Pro Series at a lower price.

  1. Sound: Moderate
  2. Construction: Aluminized steel
  3. Warranty: 3-year workmanship
PLM Series.

PLM Series

This diesel-only option is one of MBRP's loudest exhaust systems. No muffler is included, so exhaust flows uninterrupted from the DPF to the exit.

  1. Sound: Aggressive
  2. Construction: Aluminized steel
  3. Warranty: 1-year workmanship
XP Series.

XP Series

Available for both gas and diesel engines, the XP Series is made of T-409 stainless steel and produces a rumbling exhaust note that isn't too loud.

  1. Sound: Mild to moderate
  2. Construction: T-409 stainless steel
  3. Warranty: Lifetime against workmanship
BLK Series.

BLK Series

Similar to the Installer Series, but uses a high-heat black coating for added style.

  1. Sound: Moderate
  2. Construction: T-304 stainless steel
  3. Warranty: 1-year coating, 3-year workmanship
Performance Series.

Performance Series

For customers looking for a raspier, more aggressive sound, the Performance Series is equipped with a smaller-diameter muffler to increase the pitch of the exhaust note.

  1. Sound: Aggressive
  2. Construction: Aluminized steel
  3. Warranty: 1-year workmanship
SLM Series.

SLM Series

For diesel owners looking for the most aggressive exhaust sound, the SLM is MBRP's best option.

  1. Sound: Most aggressive
  2. Construction: T-409 stainless steel
  3. Warranty: 5-year workmanship
Competition Series.

Competition Series

This exhaust system is intended strictly for diesel vehicles that won't see use on public roads. It is strongly recommended that a performance programmer be used in conjunction with this high-performance exhaust.

  1. Sound: Most aggressive
  2. Construction: T-409 stainless steel
  3. Warranty: 5-year workmanship
