Magnex or Ninja???

Hi All,

I want to fit a back cat system to my 99 impreza.

Question is which do YOU prefer Magnex or Ninja system? Also out of the two which is the quietest?

Cheers

the 'drone' is caused by the centre pipe having no resonator ie straight through pipe.

If you fit a resonated centre pipe it is ok

I have had both magnex and ninja on mine and would go for the ninja everytime - and mine is straight through. If you don't like the noise turn the radio up !!!

i agree with this. i'm running a full decat with ninja back box.....brum brum! awesome! there is drone only when you have the straight through centre pipe, otherwise (with just the back box) just a nice burble. go for it! money well spent!
(scoobyworld afterburner vortex are meant to be the loudest).

Hi Folks,

Thanks for all the advice, just a question on the drone of the ninja, and obviously this is open to your interpretation, how loud is this drone exactly, for instance will I need ear muffs and a loud hailer to talk to the Mrs?? Any Ideas???

Sorry to be a pain
