Honestly don't do anything half assed. If you gotta wait a month to get what you actually want wait it out. In the end you will be far more satisfied

Good advice. I'll learn.. How should I hunt for a magnaflow? Could I go used or is it best to buy a new one?

Re: V6 exaust...didn't know what to do.

Good luck, Have fun with it. You will enjoy it, and then you will want more. Chances are that you will be questioning all aspects, combinations possible and posting that you will have a complete system that you dreamed up and it sounds awesome. Its all good. Probably my favorite, most gratifying work I've done to the car so far. Good Luck!

Re: V6 exaust...didn't know what to do.

I just put in true duals with Spin Tech Pro Streets. It sounds pretty good if I say so myself. The only mistake I made was I didn't put in an H pipe. I would like it to sound a little deeper. Spin Techs are very loud, which I like, and sound great up to 1800-2200 RPM's, but get a little raspy at the higher RPM's. And now that I have a 4.10 rear end the RPM's run a little higher (2700-2800 @ 70 mph). I am going to keep the cats on because I drive the car daily, and I heard bad things about the odor without the cats. I have a guy willing to just place a pipe between my exhaust. He says that's the same as an H pipe. Someone else says that's not so. Any opinions or advice? Thanks guys, Vic.

I wouldn't go magnaflow...they sound way too high pitched and raspy on the v6 mustangs. Plus most magnaflows are straight thru designed mufflers, and that's half the problem. I'd look into a single flowmaster, Pypes, Borla or other chambered muffler.

With the v6's the flow advantage and pressure equalization doesn't apply like it does for the v8's...but many hve said that the sound does get deeper, with long tubes. I don't know how much of a difference sound wise the h-pipe would make with the stock headers. You might just want to have the divorced dual piping welded in to save money. But if you plan on doing long tubes, I'd look into the MAC exhaust options and get the h-pipe that fits with the longtubes.

With stuck headers and divorced pipes with flow 40's mine sound barely acceptable, but under load or a quick rev and it's inner weed eater was screaming, the h made leaps and bounds of difference for me, but results will very. Two stangs can have the same mufflers, but where the h is put and how the pipes are routed could give you two different sounds.

So im guessing the H pipe sounds better on the v6 than the X?

I dont really know if it sounds better. If I go by the x setups I hear on YouTube then yes I think it sounds better. I think the h sounds good on mine and would do an h again given the choice. But that is what I like, you may think otherwise.

How much louder will longtubes actually make your 6? Very noticeable?

I disagree. I have dual magnapacks and it gives it a deep raspy sound. I love it. I would actually highly recommend them.

go slow when your dead

I've heard both on a 6 and BORLA sounds way deeper and mature.

There are some vids on YouTube with borlas, I'm not a fan, but I'm also not a fan of most setups on the six even my flows, they don't sound as good as my 5.0 with stock exhaust does

Lol. Well that goes without saying. If I could have a v8 I would. Unfortunately insurance is too high.

I can't use that excuse, I have USAA an it's a very small difference in price for me. My explorer and mustang both with full coverage only costs me 85 bucks a month.

I got the six be because is was cheap and only had 60k on it, and was the color I wanted. 99% of gt's around here have at least 150k and people want waaaay too much for them. Hell there is a 95 gt with 247k bald tires and faded paint for 6 grand down the street from me, it's been there for the last 4 years.....just sitting price, hasn't changed
