Today on this 1996 Acura Integra we are going to install MagnaFlow Exhaust part number MF15653 from MagnaFlow Performance. First off we will give you a sound test of the original Exhaust on there. Then we can compare it to the new one once we have it installed. First we will show you what is going to get replaced in our Exhaust system. Basically this is what is called a Cat-back or from the catalytic converter on back to the tailpipe. This is our converter right here and at this flange point we are going to unbolt right here and from here on back is going to get removed from the vehicle. On the bolts themselves we sprayed down with some penetrate and let it sit for at least an hour or so. The nut on the top is going to be a different size nut also. Leave that alone for now. 00:50 If these break we do not really care because this is all getting replaced anyway. Get this apart. Next spray down the rubber hangers with some more lubricant and we will pry them off. We do not want to damage the rubber hangers because those are going to get reused. The same thing is going to happen again with the muffler. Now if these hangers are already damaged from normal wear and tear you probably want to just replace them and this is going to be the best time to do it now. Now we have got our Exhaust completely off. What we are going to do is take any leftover hangers that had stayed with the Exhaust and remove those and put them back into the factory locations. 01:35 We are going to start installing new parts working our way from front to rear. We are going to slide on a new part. We are going to reuse the original factory nuts. We are just going to start one and get it started and hold everything into place and then we will slide on the rubber hangers. We will run all of these bolts down evenly and then give them a final torque. Working with the next section is going to S curve. Install the clamp, slide it on, and slide this on to the resonator pipe that we just installed. This does not really have anything to support it but the other half so we are going to slide it on for now. The approximate location of the original. Install the muffler and tailpipe and slide that into place. We will hook these up to the rubber hangers by the bumper. Put the S pipe next to the tailpipe itself. There is a little gasket that will go on here. Slide it into position and run the bolts through. This is hardware that does come with the kit and install the flange nuts. 03:28 Position the pipes the way that we want it and make sure it is not rattling up against anything that we do not want it to. Then once we have it the way we want it we will snug down the connections. The last thing we will do is tighten down the band clamp and that requires a specific torque range that is provided in the instructions. With our Exhaust fully installed the only thing we need to do now is turn the engine on and see what we get for sound. At about 20 to 50 miles, you probably want to go back underneath the vehicle again and make sure all of the fasteners are still tight. That sounds pretty good. There you have it for part number MF15653 from MagnaFlow Performance Exhaust.

Magnaflow "not so simple" bolt on Catalytic Converter - DC2 Integra LS
Needed a few modifications to get the cat in but still better than my old OEM unit. My biggest beef with the the unit is the direct bolt on claim. If I need longer bolts, PROVIDE THEM! I took it apart and couldn't install the new unit because of missing hardware. You might think fair enough, except needing extra hardware and needing to modify existing stuff was never mentioned in the instructions. So I had to reinstall, to drive to buy bolts, drive back home and wait an hour for the Exhaust to cool enough to work with it. Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining. I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)

MagnaFlow Muffler Install - 1991 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-magnaflow-1991-chevy-S10-MF10784-MF11226 .aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 1991 Chevrolet S-10 we are going to be installing part number MF10784 and part number MF11226. This is going to be a little different from normal applications because we are actually doing a little bit of custom work. We are actually going to be removing the entire Exhaust and replacing it with a MagnaFlow Exhaust cut out and a MagnaFlow wide open muffler. The first steps we are going to show you is how to remove the complete Exhaust and what we are going to have to do is remove it from the hangers and I will show you those locations right now. Before we remove everything we want to put a strap to hold up your Exhaust so it does not fall when you are removing the bolts and mounts. 00:38 The first location we are actually going to remove is going to be the rear most bracket here. That is going to be these two bolts right here. We went ahead and sprayed them down with some lubricant to help get the bolts off since this is an older truck. The second Exhaust mount that we are going to be removing is going to be the one at the back of the muffler which is going to be located here. It is also going to be two bolts holding it into the frame. After we remove the Exhaust mounts your Exhaust will be free hanging on that strap and then we are going to be removing these two bolts right here which will remove the Exhaust from here back and then we will start applying our applications. 01:15 We are going to get started on removing the Exhaust brackets. I just removed one, the other one was kind of rusted on there but we can actually just slide it back over. Then when we remove the Exhaust this will just slide off so we do not need to take out this other bolt. So now we are going to remove the Exhaust system. As you can see we are going to actually take the Sawzall off and cut it off right here. Since this is the factory Exhaust it is all rusted up and there is no way we are going to be able to slide it off so we are just going to cut right at the edge where the old Exhaust is going to be removed. As you can see we went ahead and put a second bearing strap so that when we finish cutting our Exhaust over here that it will not fall. 01:57 As you can see we have it off now so we are just going to maneuver it around our rear end and slide it up over the top of it. It would probably be best to have a second set of hands to help you as well in maneuvering. On this Exhaust cut out here they are provided with two band clamps but since we widened our diameter here they do not fit over the pipe any more so we went ahead and bought some after market pipe brackets. As you can see it just slides over like that and you will be provided those in your kit. On this application we are using these. We will put this on first and we will show you how to do that. Just take the Exhaust cut out and just slide it over our existing pipe and then we are going to take our bracket and slide it up over it and then we can tighten it down on to our muffler to make it a good seal tight. 02:50 Now we are going to put our MagnaFlow Exhaust in to place. You can put it whichever way you want that will best fit your needs. That is how you install this muffler and Exhaust cut out here. The way we did it, we are actually going to need to make an Exhaust hanger for it and you can probably just take your vehicle to any muffler shop and they can get one fabricated for you. It should not cost you that much. Now that we have it all installed we are going to show you a little bit of what it sounds like with the Exhaust. Then we are going to remove the Exhaust cut out and let you hear the sound of that as well. That concludes the installation for part numbers MF10784 and part number MF11226.
