Blender - can't thank you enough for your post. I received my exhaust last night...scheduled the install for Friday. I too have AWD...saved me a big headache! Magnaflow is covering return shipping.
Glad to help! Sucks because I was like a kid Christmas morning waiting... hopefully they get me this prototype sooner rather then later!Blender - can't thank you enough for your post.

That's awesome! Man that makes me so disappointed that it didn't work out for me. I'm hating the sound right now since we had to weld my stock exhaust back on, and I don't think the shop I had working on the exhaust was the best at welding so I don't think it's that clean of a seal.. sounds like a old Honda Civic with a rusted out exhaust pipe right under the passenger seat!My 2019 Blazer RS FWD was used by MagnaFlow to make the prototype that is pictured in the post above. After purchasing the vehicle and driving it home from the dealership I noticed immediatley it had an ear piercing tone at cruising speeds when in overdrive. It literally gave me a headache, not to mention figuratively gave me one because of the $2,000 cost the dealer added.
The great news is I am close to MagnaFlow and they took care of me immediately and added something to quiet it up. Also it originally made the the rear floorboards vibrate. Ever since I LOVE the sound at all RPM's and speeds and no vibrations. I am pretty sure it added to the performance. I test drove the exact stock vehicle, then immediately drove mine and I could feel more low end torque and it has more PEP off the line. My wife who has the 2020 Traverse V6 calls it a "race-car". This was after teasing me about my "teenager exhaust".
I drive with a bit of a lead foot but I am pretty sure my mpg has dropped? The trip meter says I'm getting 17.1mpg average after almost 6000 miles but it seems like less than that??? I did a full tank freeway only test and got 24mpg while driving at speeds over 90-110MPH (at times) so all is not lost.
FYI, for those with a trailer hitch, I was concerned it would not allow me to add a factory hitch but it worked great.
I thought something looked off. No driveshaft going to the rear diff, lol.
Looking forward to seeing and hearing the final installWell after 2 weeks of no responses from Magnaflow and finally I decided to call once again and leave a message that wasn't that nice. This finally got me a response back, that my exhaust is scheduled to ship out today for the AWD. We will see how accurate that is as they failed to email me for 2 weeks.
so you returned your other complete system ?....I was tinking in my mind that the only difference would be the connection pipe around the rear drive to the Y pipe ... but really never had a good luckNevermind… I got to my installer over my lunch break and when we got my car on the lift and opened the box... They didn't supply me with any mufflers.. waiting on a reply back from Magnaflow now.
You are correct. He forgot I sent back the whole system. But now on the phone it sounded like they didn't have stock of the pieces I need to finish. Said he was going to give me a call back sometime today with an answer for me.so you returned your other complete system ?....I was tinking in my mind that the only difference would be the connection pipe around the rear drive to the Y pipe ... but really never had a good luck
That is the one I originally purchased. They failed to acknowledge that they only made it for the 2WD Blazers. I did get a call from Magnaflow that they are sending me out another system today and I should see it on Monday.
