Looks good! There's no issues removing the cats? Isn't there an O2 sensor or something in that area?
No O2 sensors after the secondary cats. Only after the primaries - as long as you don't mess with those you're good to go as far as emissions are concerned.

Originally I wanted HCF's to replace the secondaries because I was gonna install primary downpipes with HFC's - I was concerned about overboost, so I figured having 2 sets of HFC's would prevent that. But since that's not happening, I think this will work just fine.

Looks good are you happy with the sound now?
Definitely happier with the sound. I still might consider installing something like the plates you have, but for the time being I think the sound is just right.

So I've lost track, what is your whole exhaust system made up of now? How much is/had to be custom made (besides tips)?

Stock primary downpipes. ARK midpipes. Magnaflow cat-back exhaust with custom tips. That's pretty much it.

Originally I had a set of HFC's welded in to the ARK midpipes, but they did a total noob job and they ended up leaking, so this guy cut them out for me and welded everything back together so now it's as if I never added the HFC's on the first place. I basically just wasted a lot of time and money doing that. 😣

Thanks. Well it looks great. I didn't see anything called midpipes on their website, just down pipes. Did I miss it?

I read that the biggest exhaust bottle neck is the primary dp and with just new plugs, 93 octane and a Lap3 Pro Tuner stock everything else you get the biggest performs gain for the money. 450WHP.that's good, right?

Midpipes = secondary downpipes.

I call them midpipes because, to me, downpipes are the ones that bolt directly to the turbo. So you can call them midpipes, or even secondary downpipes. You'll see those terms used interchangeably for the G70/Stinger.

Yup, the primary DP's and the rear section mufflers are the biggest exhaust restrictions.

Primaries are a pain in the ass for those of us that have AWD. RWD is still tedious, but not nearly as bad as AWD. Ask me how I know.

Got it! Thanks for the explanation.

Hah, probably will just keep the Helmholtz resonators on. I think I will get new custom tips welded, and I may put some plates on like @CoconutRob has. It's not loud, it's just super deep, like I've got some big ass subwoofer constantly pumping in the trunk.

Also, for the cat back exhaust, it comes in two pieces (as you already know). The section with the x-pipe had to have some material removed where the slip fit is, otherwise it would have been too long.

The midpipes I already swapped out for aftermarket ARK pipes. So I have a full exhaust, except for the primary downpipes which are still stock (and will most likely stay that way, because f*ck those, they're a nightmare).
Could you explain or direct me to a link I might have missed regarding swapping or the primary dp's? I was tt Lap3 and David said the stock one is the biggest bottleneck of the entire exhaust system and just by swapping it out, leaving the rest of the exhaust stock and getting the tune would be killer gains.

The primary downpipes definitely are a significant bottleneck, and I bet he's right in that they're probably the biggest bottleneck in the entire exhaust system.

The turbo flange studs and nuts are difficult to get to. Mine snapped when attempting to remove, and I ended up having to replace the entire turbo because of the significant galling on the flange threads that happened when removing the nuts (all the studs came out with them). If you decide to do them yourself, I'd get in touch with Nick Khar at Khartunerz - he's a really helpful guy and can give you a ton of good pointers.

I think if I were to finally go through with installing primary DP's again (I ended up quitting and sold mine), I'd loosen each nut/stud a little at a time, and give each one a good spray of penetrating oil after each turn to hopefully prevent galling. But even that isn't guaranteed to prevent the studs from sticking, and eventually snapping during the removal.

You will also need a few long extensions, and a really good U-Joint. Don't cheap out with a crappy one, get a nice one, like the impact u-joints. They articulate better.

Thank you very much for the information. Gives me allot to think about.

Welp, here's some unfortunate news for your winter day:

"I saw you called. I have some not so great news to relay. I spoke with my design team and they have put a hold on the G70 exhaust systems. Unfortunately, I do not know the reason why but I am hopeful for development of a system in the future. If the request opens up again you will be the first person I contact. Thank you again for your time and persistence, it is greatly appreciated." -Copy Spakes//Magnaflow

I guess it's time for everyone doing some Christmas exhaust system shopping to either pivot or mod a Stinger exhaust system

^Agreed, this is a major bummer. Though at the same time it makes me feel better about buying @FastEddie 's exhaust. Thanks man! (Both Eddie and OMG7O)

I sent another email to Magnaflow asking for a G70 specific version. Its such little work for them. If I can at least get an answer as to why the design team decided not to proceed Ill be happy. Not keeping my hopes up, but they need to know people are still interested

Yeah that's odd, don't they just need to change the tips out to fit the G70?

And shorten the length a bit, I believe. However, I did get the feeling that they may have been aiming for a different sound profile compared to the Stinger (though not sure how different).

Still no response from Cody on the email I sent on Feb 10th, but he has been a bit hard to reach before

At least magnaflow has good response times for emails: Thank you for reaching out to Magnaflow. Unfortunately at this time there is not a system that is in the design and development phase for that vehicle. Our systems are developed based on demand for that specific vehicle. Please feel free to check back with us in the future for updates on a system for that vehicle.
