Try YouTube searches. There is all kinds of people showing off their exhaust systems. See if there is a set up you like.

Re: exaust

are you wanting the sound alone? because not trying to upset anyone... but there are a ton of routes you can do this... if you want just the sound then yes i think that will get you close... but it will never sound the same... and are you wanting to do the look of the v8 with dual exhaust too? or are you just looking for the sound. Like stated above... google and youtube can be your best friend when it comes to exhaust sounds... and setups. Hope this helps.

Re: exaust

A lot of people have that setup and are very happy with it. I've heard a familiar setup in person and at idle it sounded real good. Deep and rumbly (for a 6). When accelerating in the lower rpms it was good but once it hit ~3000 rpms it got droney and raspy...but that's what is expected with the v6.

I do think the off road (no catalytic converters) midpipe did contribute to the drone and high pitched tone. Keeping the cats will definitely help in that department.

The "cats" are the catalytic converters in your exhaust system. They help with your CO2 emissions. I would take them off because it will make your care sound louder and more aggressive. Especially with an exhaust system. If they are take out hour check engine light will come on and you will need a mil eliminator from AmericanMuscle.com. Or buy a tuner to shut them off. As your car will no longer meet emissions requirements. I think it's a great idea to gut or take them off.

I've posted plenty of times about my old v6, go to YouTube and type 1997 mustang v6 flowmasters super 44s look for the video with the authors name that's branman2012, then check out my old 96 v6 with true duals and 40 series, it's on my page also. I liked the sound of the 97 alot! It sounded better than the 96 I think. Full exhaust details in the description.

That's alright, the only way to know more is to learn, and you're not stupid, we all started out at one time and learned more by asking questions and doing some research.

The purpose of catytic converters (our mustangs have 4) help reduce the toxicity of the gases/emissions that our engines create.

They also minimize the decibal output of the exhaust. A lot of guys will buy an off road midpipe (either h or x) that replaces the piping containing the cats. This will make the exhaust much louder, as it is basically like having straight pipes in that area.

For v8's it's a great option if you want loud exhaust...the sound is already good, it only gets better (if you like loud). But for v6's louder isn't always better. V6's are even firing engines and naturally get higher pitched, so having it louder will just make the raspiness more noticeable.

I'd suggest either keeping the stock cats or buy an aftermarket catted midpipe. They are more expensive than an offroad midpipe, but paired with longtubes and some flows you'd have a pretty nice, mellow sounding v6.

But it's your car, so the decision is yours. As said listen to some clips online, if you can listen to cars in person, that's the best way to hear exhaust.

I'm new to this forum but I do have a good sounding exhaust done on my sixxer. I have an offroad h installed with the AM SLP loudmouth II resonators welded in with turn downs. It's a noticeable exhaust and turns heads constantly, I personally prefer it over the typical 40 series that everyone put on the mustangs. The complete set up cost me 450 with labor.

I would go with x for more mature calm sound or H for louder less quality sound. I have X and I love it and get compliments all the time
