Exhaust on a V6.

I was wondering what would be the best type of exhaust to make my V6 sound more powerful and turn more heads. Ive been looking at the ones on AmericanMuscle.com, but would like some more expirence(Sp) 'Stang owner.

Re: Exhaust on a V6.

I'd suggest searching for videos or sound clips on You Tube or Google for V6 exhaust so you can hear what different exhausts sound like.

Being a v6 that may not be a good option for you. Our 6s come with 2.25" and that's a 2.5 inch system. Possibility you may lose some torque with the decreased back pressure. I just found this out too. I'm about to be doing the exhaust on my v6 sometime next month. I'm lined up for a full cat back 2.25" custom system with an h pipe for the growl and two FM 40s. From what I have heard on YouTube that's what I like the most. Sounds very aggressive under about 3000 rpm but after that it gets a bit "revvy". Minus the mufflers which I got from a buddy's dad for 80 bucks. A local very reputable shop quoted me 200 smackers for the full system and instalation with two chrome tips. 280 dollar system doesn't sound too shabby to me!

Not a problem! Hey when I get mine done I'll definitely post pics and an exhaust clip for you to check out if you're willing to wait that long. I'm going to be keeping all the stock manifolds and cats so mine should be easily reproducible for low cost.

To make our v6s Sound good your gonna need a dual system. I have one flowmaster 40 on mine and it is nowhere loud enough.

Can you post a clip of yours? I'm curious what it sounds like with a single. Maybe a 1 in 2 out muffler will sound good without being over the top for my girlfriends?

How much would it cost to get a duel system installed?

Re: Exhaust on a V6.





these aren't my videos but the exhaust sounds in them sound exactly like my 2000 v6

my flowmaster 40 has a deeper sound than these videos though

It depends on what you buy... A prefabbed kit off AM is gonna cost you somewhere in the vicinity of 400+ and then add shipping and instalation at a muffler shop unless you plan on installing it yourself. My dad owns a fabrication company and I have access to any welder or tool you could ever think of and it's still well worth the money to just take it to a muffler shop. And have them do it for you in 20 minutes. The one that I'm getting on mine soon is going to be almost 300 out the door installed....

I have american thunder w/ an O/R h-pipe on mine... sounds amazing. very deep pitch, not too raspy... definitely not a ricer sound like many of the other brands...

Re: Exhaust on a V6.

I ordered a high flow cat'd X-pipe (be here Friday) and an American Thunder GT Catback from American Muscle (arrives today). It's getting installed on Sunday afternoon. I recently discovered the issue with different pipe diameters and I am concerned about torque now too... I already think I'm going to replace the 2-chamber Super 40 mufflers with a 3-chamber something or other

I'm giving one of my buddies $200 to install Pace Setter shorty headers, high flow midpipe, and the catback. Since we are chopping off the old rotted factory piping and welding in the new stuff, it shouldn't take too long. Not gonna bother with a before video, but I am certainly going to shoot an "after" video.

I have dyno time scheduled for Friday morning because I want to see what the Windstar on a stock single exhaust does. Afterwards I want another run with the new exhaust. Proof on paper!
