single to dual exhaust?

I currently have a single exhaust (v6) and want to go for a dual exhaust system in the future. I'm gonna admit I don't know anything about converting from a single exhaust to a dual exhaust so what am I going to need and how much am I looking at spending? Right now I only have an aftermarket muffler because I wanted to make the stock v6 sound deeper (I absolutely hated the stock sound, didn't sound like a mustang sound at all) but I was wondering if I could now make it deeper with a crackling sound to it (sort of like the dual exhaust sound you would get from a v8 but I know v6s won't ever sound like v8s but I want the crackling sound from the v8). So now that you know what I want to go for, what would be the parts I would need to purchase and how much am I looking at spending? I don't want to install anything not street legal (accidentally did it with the AM CAI without knowing it until I brought it into an auto shop and they told me it wasn't legal). Thanks

get a shop to custom make u an h pipe, buy some mufflers( flowmasfers imo) , and if u have a v6 rear bumper get your exhaust dumped after the rear axle.

Re: single to dual exhaust?

Offroad H-Pipe and a Magnaflow Dual Exhaust will make it sound better. Its very costly to make it sound similar to a V8...Go to AM they have true dual kits they run from like $500-700. I used to have the above listed set-up on my v6 and it sounded great at idle, revving, acceleration but the harder you hit the throttle the more you could tell it wasent a V8..

Re: single to dual exhaust?

uh...i can't really describe it. definitely sounds better than VTEC but not as good as duals. if i can, i'll get a video of it today and post the link on here. i'll just say that the muffler really makes it's difference at 1500 RPMs and 3000 RPMs, nothing in between, below, or above, just at those two RPM points.

lol i don't want my car to sound like a v8 though, unless the main point of the sound coming out from the v8s' dual exhaust was the crackling sound...

If u don't have a GT bumper dump it

You won't even see the pipe that bends downwards.
It's very slight, but like horseplay Said also

another question, if i could, if i could find a GT somewhere in my area, would it be worth to trade in this v6 for an older model gt (perhaps a year or two older) with lesser mileage? i'm currently at around 137,xxx miles with this v6 and I'm pretty sure there are GTs out there with lesser mileage but a few grand more.

Crackling sound is just hard to get with a v6.. What year do you have?

I just got a new exhaust setup a couple days ago. I too hated the stock exhaust. I went to a custom muffler shop and got a h pipe with two flow master 40s. He also put on really nice tips. It ran me 315$ the sound is great. Alot deeper an somewhat louder. It doesn't sound like a ricer. It's real clean. Look at getting something like this

Your not going to get that "crackle" from an even firing v6 motor.

Just to let you know.

What do you mean by an even firing V6 motor? Not even with a custom dual exhaust system? How come people on YouTube can do it then? Lol I'm confused
