      2012 S60 T5 Exhaust

      Hello once again Volvo enthusiasts.

      Newbie exhaust question here (I just got done searching through threads for an hour and I can't find an answer).

      Question 1.
      -Will purchasing an off the rack muffler from Magnaflow or Flowmaster affect the car's ECU or overall (longterm) operation? Note: I'm just looking for a louder, deeper tone. Not looking to squeeze out extra HP with larger pipes and a new cat or anything like that.

      Thanks for the input!

      No it wont affect anything. You will pick up a few HP because aftermarket exhausts usually are a little less restrictive than stock. I would recommend looking into a KPAX exhaust, I hear those sound fantastic and if intalled by an authorized dealer dont affect the warranty.

      I'd love to have a KPAX installed, I've read some great stuff. But with having a T5, I can't really justify spending that kind of dough. Maybe if I had a T6. Thanks for the info.

      Would installing an aftermarket muffler axle back, affect warranty? resonator delete, y pipe?

      Really interested in your review/video on the k-pax. (Details of the how and where would be great also). Chris@ss promised a review a while ago and I either can't find it or he hasn't posted yet.

      There were some shipping related issues with getting the system to my dealer last week. I expect to have it installed early this week, so I'll do my best to get something posted ASAP.

      Same here.. I went with the Magnaflow Camaro exhaust as it basically has the same set up as the S60.. It sounds great. Not very loud but it has a nice deep tone. Something similar to a G35.. It sounds great from the interior and awesome on the outside. I get small sexy backfires when down shifting or revving...

      Grrusmc,

      I like the nice beefy outlets. What portion of the exhaust was replaced with the Magnaflow?

    21. #19
      Just deleted the stock muffler.. Replaced with Magnaflow muffler, custom hangers, and he bent his own pipes leading to the tips..

      Who or what shop installed the muffler for you? I love the tail pipes.

      I have 2012 S60 T5 also and put a Magnaflow Camaro style muffler (part #12265) on it. Perfect sound, deep, no rasp or drone at all. Exactly what I wanted. It's actually a bit deeper then what the video picks up.

      Very nice! I wonder what this would sound like on my T6 S60 R... I'm thinking it needs a deeper rasp tone.

      Hey guys. Just got back from deployment and my baby sat in indoor storage for six months. Paid $90 a month to have it stored indoors, battery disconnected, and slightly driven about once a month. Not bad at all.

      Anywho, the exhaust still sounds great (as if it would change lol). I'm thinking about changing out the resonator soon as well.

      Btw, sorry I didn't reply to posts in the past. I was overseas and the Internet was absolutely dreadful.

      Thank you for serving and glad to hear you're back to enjoy the S60. My car doesn't have a resonator on it, so I'm guessing yours doesn't either.

      As you can tell, I'm rather new to my Volvo. I assumed there was a resonator.

      Anybody install the Viva or Snabb exhaust on their T5? They look to be the same system. Not the K Pax or Heico The one around $800.
