Are Magnaflows quite at highway speeds (inside the cabin)?

It's pretty loud at highway speeds. The engine is loud enough itself. With an intake and exhaust, you willl have to speak louder than normal when on the highway. It's not loud as hay, but there want be any question that you have an aftermarket exhaust. You get used to it.

i find the magnaflow really quiet at crusing speeds.....it all depends on your RPM's. If you're drivin' 100 in 4th gear...then anything will be loud...but if you're in 5th..the RPM's are fairly low and the noise is minimal.

When I travel on the interstate, its usually at 70-80 in 5th gear. The rpms are just under 4k at 80mph. If you are traveling at 60mph or so its pretty quiet. Above that, the engine buzzes like crazy by itself. Anyhow, the mag is about the quietest thing out there. Trust me, it's not that loud, but you will hear it in the cabin at 70-80mph. When I say you'll hear it, I don't mean excessively loud, just a low to moderate humming. My daughter and wife are in the car for road trips fairly frequently so I wouldn't have anything too loud. At 80mph you will have to speak up a little though.

no wonder you think it's loud! your doing 80 at 4000 rpm?.... it should be 3400. i have it and i think it's the quietest catback available now. i like it quiet with deep tones tho. i can still hear my intake over the sound of the exhaust.

You are telling me that at 80mph your car is only spinning at 3400k????? Which model do you have and why exactly do you say, "...it should be 3400?"

Oh yeah and the magnaflow is pretty quiet just a low hum in the cabin
