What exhaust gives puts out best sound on a 01 v6

I have a 2001 mustang v6 an I want to put some true duel borlas. I'm not shore if it's the best thing I herd them on YouTube an I liked the way they sound but wanted some help choosing. I would also like to no if it's illegal to cam my car an if I should or not. If there are any other upgrades I should think about let me know thanks!!

Re: What exhaust gives puts out best sound on a 01 v6

Mac Off Road H-pipe & flowmaster 40 series mufflers with standard GT over the axle pipes and tips or just get MAC H-pipe and MAC catback. You can buy the mufflers for like $100 for two and have an exhaust shop bend 2.25-2.5 inch pipes, but I would recommend getting an H-pipe from either Mac or one of the other companies. All in all you will probably spend around $450-$500, but you'll like it. I'm biased to flowmasters so do your research on youtube and see what you like. Borla's are expensive as hell and honestly I'd only put them on a cobra. I think you mean can you take the catalytic converters off right? Not a cam? A cam is legal, but you shouldn't think about that until you have a lot of modifications. taking your cats off is not legal in most states, but your car would probably still pass emissions.

Get the MAC High-flow catalytic H-pipe (legal since it has two high flow cats), but I definitely recommend getting rid of the stock one as it is extremely restrictive.

Take off the cats. Will sound louder but not necessarily better.

Re: What exhaust gives puts out best sound on a 01 v6

The way to make your v6 the loudest is to get an off road midpipe and straight thru mufflers...BUT this will not sound the best, in my opinion.

If you are going for quality of sound, or the best tone, it's really going to be a personal preference. But I will try and guide you by suggesting you look into chambered mufflers...Flowmaster, Pypes, certain Cherry Bombs, etc.

Most straight thru mufflers like Magnaflow and Classic Cherry Bombs are going to be louder and even flow better than chambered mufflers, but won't have the tone quality.

Borlas are straight thru design, but somehow don't sound too bad on v6's.

Stick with some sort of catalytic converter, whether it's the stock ones or hi flows on an aftermarket h-pipe. They will keep the v6 mellow, which is what you want.

As said, replacing the stock y-pipe is a good idea as it is restrictive and shoots down any possibility of your stang having "true" duals. You can purchase a midpipe, either x or h, catted or off road (no cats), or have a shop weld divorced pipes in place of the y-pipe. Doing this will improve sound and flow to a degree.

Installing a cam is not illegal. Usually most v6 owners will upgrade their heads, intakes, and cams at the same time to utilize teardown time and gain more power, but some v6 vendors do sell cams specifically made for that lopey sound at idle. That will definitely improve the sound of the v6
