2001 v6 exhaust help!

Okay so I drive a 2001 mustang v6, and I'm running true duals straight pipe, and I'm looking for a new system. I don't want the louud as heck ones just the exhaust that will get noticed I want a deep sounding exhaust that sounds goood from idle to acceleration. I need just mufflers and what kind of headers and what kind of mufflers need ideas I'm trying to keep the headers under 400$ and mufflers around 80$ a piece??? Any ideas

Re: 2001 v6 exhaust help!

You can get a set of MAC or Pacesetter long tube headers without the ceramic coating for under $400.00.
Alot of mufflers under $80.00. Consider Flowmaster 44's or 40's. Thrush Welded. Cherry Bomb Pro. Any of those, I can guarantee you'll love the results.

Re: 2001 v6 exhaust help!

you wont gain much with long tubes on an N/A 3.8L v6, but you may pick up a tiny bit (5rwhp-10 maybe if you have ported intakes etc)

GET AN X-PIPE - HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. LOUD AND ANNOYING WHILE DRIVING ON THE HWY. X-PIPE SOLVED IT!

Re: 2001 v6 exhaust help!

Our V6's have a few options for mid-pipe- 1) No mid-pipe, just divorce duals, 2) MAC ProChamber. 3) An "H" pipe. 4) An "X" pipe.
You will need O2 sensor extenders, a set of cats too.

He means no crossover. So you would have 2 pipes separate from each other.

Re: 2001 v6 exhaust help!

When you cut the cats... Did you gain or loose horsepower??? I have the H Pipe, I'm having a problem finding people that want to put it on my car.... I'm wondering if its even worth it... I want a little extra horsepower and a louder sound.

You mount the cats directly on to the headers collector pipe. Long tube headers and cats are put on regularly.
I'm one who has researched and changed up exhausts plenty last two years. The Flowmaster "40&44", Cherry Bomb "Pro", & the Thrush "Welded" sound great.

Keep the cats & go to a real auto shop who welds. They can put it on no problem for a price of $50.00-$200.00 depending on where you live and what shop you go to. You HAVE to maintain a certain amount of back pressure on the exhaust system to gain horsepower and not go backwards and loose low end torque. If you do not have a blower, try to keep the pipe diameter the same at 2.25" and gradually increase to 2.5" pipe.

~-~For deeper sounding exhaust note, you have MAC ProChamber, and then "H" pipe and "X" pipe is raspy but performs well/acceleration. Divorced duals are loud. Exhaust shops make their own mid-pipes all the time.
I've said it two or three times, maybe it's not posting-
Chambered mufflers deepen the tone. And again, you have FM 40's&44's, Cherry Bomb Pro, and Thrush Welded for starters../!`:'-_-
Go to YouTube and type in "Mustang V6 Exhaust" substitute Exhaust with a name of a muffler- There are thousands-

Re: 2001 v6 exhaust help!

It will sound the same, maybe better. Mufflers go in after midpipe. In order it goes- Headers, cats, mid-pipe, runners, mufflers, tailpipes, tips.

Re: 2001 v6 exhaust help!

Which one is in the video? It does not say what kind of exhaust you are listening to. It sounds great though, I like it. Nevermind, I see that it's the Pypes exhaust-

Hey, please post a video. I have only heard my car. I have no idea why no one posts videos of single chamber exhaust when they sound best and helps other people decide what they want. I want to hear yours-
