For those who have purchased their own mufflers for their X, I was wondering which size you are using and why (I'm looking at Magnaflow). I know of at least a few people running 5x8s. I measured the stock piece - the thing is huge - and it seems like a 5x11 will also fit without pain. Magnaflow has some 5x11s that are designed for trucks and SUVs, and supposedly they increase flow but also have more noise suppression (I'd prefer quieter).

Suggestions/recommendations?

I'm using the larger of the two. I had them put on the smaller one and it sounded pretty good @ idle but inside the car you would lose your mind from the resonance @ anything over 1200 RPM. The larger on sounds a bit quieter and has no resonance until about 4500 RPM (really how often do we spend @ that RPM).

Nice, that's exactly what I was looking for. So you've got a 5x11 in there...what inlet/outlet diameters are they? I'm thinking of picking up the dual 2.5" / single 3" combo (or possibly the dual 2.25" / single 2.5").
