We had an awesome time last weekend at the latest MagnaFlow Meetup at our headquarters in Oceanside, California. Locals, family and friends gathered on Saturday morning to enjoy some awesome vehicles, fresh coffee and beautiful sunshine. We had something for everyone, from raffles, cool vehicles and snacks to exhaust installation demos.
The theme of the meetup was off-road performance, and boy did the attendees deliver! Here’s a selection of some of the awesome rides that we saw at the event:
The Camburg Road Show
Jerry Zaiden from Camburg gave us a rundown of several of our MagnaFlow x Camburg vehicles we had on display at the meetup.
The star of the assemblage was the new Ford F-150 Raptor R, which is in the early stages of its life as a project build. Jerry and his team started with one of the most important modifications, in the form of an early example of our new cat-back performance exhaust system for the Ford F-150 Raptor R (#19651).
The vehicle is also now running on 37” BF Goodrich tires on KMC Impact Forged beadlock wheels that they’ve had anodized in gold. The coming Camburg suspension parts, kinetic upper control arms and rear links will also be anodized in gold. A set of King shocks, coilovers and bypass tubes are also on the horizon, to name a few of the planned upgrades.
Camburg’s Ford Bronco was also in attendance, which is running Camburg billet upper control arms, billet rear links, FOX DSC coilovers front and rear, Go Fast Camper on a custom Camburg roof rack, Baja Designs lights, Optima Battery, Rugged Radio and Scosche mounts. The Bronco also sports a MagnaFlow Overland Series performance exhaust system for its improved off-road capabilities, performance and overall refinement.
Camburg’s 2nd gen Ford F-150 Raptor was also there, which runs rear Deaver springs, a 2.5” bump stop kit, Fox live valve internal bypass shocks in the back, full Camburg long travel kit up front, Baja Designs lights and Black Rhino wheels on 37” BF Goodrich all-terrain tires. Like the other Camburg vehicles, the truck also rocks a complete MagnaFlow cat-back performance exhaust system.

Jason Denney’s 1972 International Scout II
MagnaFlow friend Jason Denney (Ig: @tacodust) of RIGd Supply brought his ’72 International Scout to the meetup, which some of you may recognize from its appearance at our SEMA booth last year. He started the build as a tribute to his father, who owned a similar Scout back in the day.
Some of the major modifications to the Scout include an LS swap, 4-speed automatic transmission, Dana 44, 37” tires, forged beadlock wheels, Anything Scout Workman front bumper, Warn winch, Yukon Gear front and rear lockers and a custom trophy truck style Camburg rear end to name a few.
Last year we helped Jason build a custom exhaust solution for his Scout. The end result is a work of stainless art that includes one of our modular xMOD Series Universal Performance Mufflers (#14006/#14009).
The goal with the project was to maintain the stock look of the truck as much as possible while creating a 4x4 capable of modern performance and a vehicle that will make for an awesome family heirloom down the road.
Rockstar Garage’s “Rok Bugy”
Next up is a Frankenstein’s monster of a racing buggy project, this time from our friends over at Rockstar Garage (Ig: @therockstargarage). What started on a whim with an old ’70 Volkswagen Beetle and a modified Jeep frame has become a highly capable freak of nature that Beetle and Jeep fans alike are sure to either adore or scoff at.
The beast, known as “Rok Bugy” (Ig: @rokbugy), sports an LS1 out of a Cadillac that sits in front of what remains of the Volkswagen’s shell. It tames all that power and sound with the help of a custom true dual exhaust with MagnaFlow mufflers that help shape the sound while maintaining performance.
