Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

on a 6 cylinder? a single exhaust WITH A MAGNAFLOW on a 6 cylinder will sound like A mean *** honda! Magnaflows should NEVER go in a 6 if your going for sound IMO

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

I'm running a single glasspack (Flowtech redhot) on my stock setup and it sounds just fine.... it's not raspy sounding at all and it's almost as quiet as stock inside the car... just a pleasant mild deep sound... total cost... $16 + $4 s&h and about 1/2 hour to cut out the old muffler and weld in the new one.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

I don't know about you guys but I like the tone of the 350/370 Z's I alway thought they had a nice sound for a 6'er. If I had a V6 stang I would try to capture the Z's sound if that's possible.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

Yah the pypes street pros (muffler made for the v6) have that sound. They give off a great idle, nice and deep, then when accelerating they give off a smooth, racey tone...not overly loud or droney, but crisp and unique. I like them, better than the flowmasters because the flows sound really bad imo in the higher rpms.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

First of all, as much as we like the sound of the 350/370Z we cant really capture it due to the engines being so different. Also one puts out an additional 100+ HP. However you can get a nice sounding set up. I preferably like my Mac Shorty Headers, Mac OFF road H, and my original 40 series that have been on my car for over 7 years. Yes a little raspy at or above 4K RPM, however very deep and throaty under that range. If you a mustang enthusiast you will always be able to tell the V8 grunt from the V6. Eventually when I do have a new daily driver this time next year the entire exhaust is going to be replaced for a turbo set up anyway, but for the time being I like it and am happy with the sound. Nothing wrong with a single exhaust set up and to tell you the truth a dual set up doesn't gain much more power (very negligible) than a single set up with a stock motor.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

Kinda what I was thinking, my stock muffler is shot, dont really wanna drop 500 bucks on a dual, so I think a single is the way to go, never said I expected it to sound like an 8my wife has duals on her 3.8 and it sounds decent.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

IMO running a single pipe out of the rear is UGLY. Now if you do a turn down thats different, but if you have pipes coming out of the rear go dual or dont bother. If your going to run a single exhaust pipe might as well throw a fart cannon on it.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

Agreed, turn it down or keep the stock tail pipe and attach it to the new muffler. Don't want it looking ghetto.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

Yah definitely get rid of that single turndown pipe if you just swap in a muffler. Either cut it off under the bumper or dump the s.o.b. right after the muffler.

If you can handle the added exhaust tone in the cabin, the turndown will give off a deeper tone under the car.

Go with the flowmaster kit. It is dual and sounds great and comes with everything needed.

I agree with Zebs here, I've heard Magnaflows on a sixer and the sound really ricey. I have a single exhaust with a Flowmaster Super 44 Muffler, it has a nice deep tone and it really starts to growl around 3000 RPM's. I'm currently installing BBK Shorty Headers so it should really growl when I'm done!!!

It's nice at cruising speed, it sounds good through the entire RPM range. It's not overly loud, it's a little quiet for my taste but it has a great tone and when you floor it it really comes to life, especially compared to stock. I can't wait to hear it with the BBK shorties I'm installing!!!!

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

this setup sounds nice for a 6, also for those that say a x-pipe sounds raspy. I always disagreed with those that say "H-pipe is a low sound and X is a high raspy tone" you can get a clean low sound with a x as well.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

I finally got the BBK Shorty Headers after waiting two weeks for delivery from Brothers Performance. Anyway, they sound nice, a little louder than stock and it has a nice deep tone. Overall the car sounds really good, the BBK's give it a nice tuned exhaust note. I'm definitely going with true duals for my next mod, I just want more volume that I just can't get from the single exhaust.

Re: Single Magnaflow Exhaust

As much as I like the 350z sound, its not one I would want coming out the back of a mustang. And as far as X pipes go they sound decent in videos, and at idle but if you ever find someone in person with an x pipe it sounds horrible past 2k
