You've probably read over 200 exhaust stories and, right now, are wondering why we're doing another one. It's simple. An exhaust is usually the first or second aftermarket performance part anyone slaps onto their car. More importantly, a bolt-on exhaust system is a rather quick and simple install. And even more important than that, it makes power. Well, most of them do. We'll slap a Magnaflow after-cat system onto an '06 Honda Civic Si and see just how much power we can gain from a couple shiny pipes.

Long And StrongBehind The Scenes at the "Flow"You might recognize the Magnaflow name because it's been around for 25 years or because of their zany ads with Mario Lopez in them. What? He's not AC Slater? Who the hell is Mario Andretti? Did Nads go to school with him or something? Anyhow, if you're anything like us then you wonder about things like how these guys crank out so many exhausts every year. Well, we took a quick tour through the huge Magnaflow facility and grabbed a few spy shots for your curious minds. All that work's pretty easy, though, if you have hundreds of employees, mandrel bend machines, robot welders and metal stampers. What, you don't have all this in your garage? Weak.
