jba or magnaflow

I know jba uses a magnaflow muffler in there catback, but is it the same one magnaflow uses in theres. The reason i ask is i found a jba for pretty cheap, its not stainless steel. Magnaflows catback only comes in stainless steel. My question is will the jba one sound just like magnaflows.

if the pipe is the same diameter, the muffler case is the same size, and the tip is the same they should sound the same.

ive heard stainless sounds different then aluminized tho.

it says 2.5inch with 3inch tip, i heard sound clips of the magnaflow, and want it but just dont want to pay 400 dollars. the jba cat back is only like 280. Isn't all the cat backs that people got done at local muffler shops aluminized and not stainless.

I just got my JBA exhaust put on over the weekend and I LOVE IT! It has a great sound, the only problem I had was the holes on the pipe that bolts to the cat were too small for the original bolts as the kit didnt come with new bolts so I had to have the holes torched open to fit the bolts correctly.
One thing though, unless you found a system thats ready to be shipped, I had to wait 2 1/2 months to get my exhaust as JBA only produces 5 of them at a time from what they told me and I ordered mine right after they finished makeing a batch.
Oh ya, I got the stainless steel system, Ill take some pictures of it tomorrow and post them for you to see. The reason I went with JBA was becouse It came with a magnaflow muffler, Ive read some people say they pulled there muffler out and right there it said Magnaflow on it but mine didnt, honestly I cant tell you if it is a magnaflow muffler or not but it does have a great sound, you wont be disapointed.
