completly new exhaust

Im going to 100% redo my exhaust from headers all the way back and i was going to get long tube headers with an h pipe.. but i was wondering how much extra piping would i need after i put on the mufflers or would the exhaust tips go back that far? Anything helps.

If you get a good cat back yes. Magnaflow magnapacks, borla, or something a little rumble nothing obnoxious

Get cats. They offer less power but sounds better with them. Sure people will say other wise but if you were smart youd get the four cats as recommended or two.

Get your headers and buy some cats and buy a cat back then go to an exhaust shop and have them fabricate your divorced pipes.

I bought MAC longtube headers, set of hi-flow cats, MAC ProChamber, Flowmaster 10 Series mufflers and tail pipes. The shop (Mustang Shop) kept the car for a day and a half to custom pipe in the new system this past spring. Not an easy job. Installation is one thing, correctly placing hangers and completely eliminating vibrations is a whole other job. Labor= $900.00

I had pypes offroad v6 conversion which means 2 points. One no cats so it was loud. And two pypes is the crappiest exhaust ive ever heard.

A set of ceramic headers are best bang/buck from either MAC or Pacesetter. I have a set of ceramic LT headers from MAC & really like them.

That'll sound great on your sixer, chop of the back two cats better flow and will still sound good.. Just installed a set of pacesetter long tubes on my buddies car not too long ago fitment was good no issues afterwards

He did the super 44's with h-pipe and no cats dumped at axle along with the LT headers and it sounded great honestly for not having any cats

I've heard yours robb several times on YouTube actually I listen to it a lot :/... Lol that's the exact setup I want it's the best I have heard.. Only difference is I don't know if I want mine dumped or ran out the back.. Not to much of a fan of the tips cause I know sometimes they like to hang and break
