V6 upgrades

I am looking to upgrade my stock exhaust to dual cat back exhaust and am wondering if I should go with Flowmasters or Dyno Max Super Turbos? I want something loud to wake up my neighbors early in the morning when going to work, lol. All opinions will be appreciated.

Not really because my neighbors stay up all night and party while I have to sleep. They don't get quiet until its time for me too get up for work. Again, what do you guys prefer if I want something loud, and do u prefer the sound of the super turbos over the flowmasters? I'd like an opinion about my mustang exhaust.

Off road x pipe, flow master 40 catback, cut the mufflers off. voila! loud and guaranteed to make them hate you.

I have a duel magnaflow set up, it wakes up all my nieghbors in the morning when I step on it going down the road. It sounds good too once you put headers and a intake on, I have been questioned before if I actually have a V8 in my car lol.

You could get exhaust cut outs too, that way it is really loud only when you want it to be.

Should I go with 2 inch or 2.25 inch? The guy at the muffler shop recomended that I should go with 2 inch instead. He said I would lose back pressure if I go with 2.25

back pressure is a myth, it is all about your exhaust gases from your engine getting out through the exhaust system as quickly and efficiently as possible, this creates . with that said, I believe if you any wider than 2.5" you're going to lose some low end torque. I could be wrong about the piping size though.

Stay with in 2.5 any bigger you will lose low end TQ
And yes back pressure is a myth your only trading low end TQ for upper end that's all

A shop by my house charges 650 for everything. Its not going to bolt on to the y pipe, I'm assuming that since it's not bolting to the y pipe, it's true duals. Correct me if I'm wrong. And is 650 for everything too much? The shop is called Sweenys Muffler and they have good reviews on yelp.

exactly, true duals you will have two pipes with either an x or h pipe. or you could go divorced duals, no x or h pipe. and two mufflers. 650 isn't bad but to give you an idea, it's different in different areas, but I got my cats taken off, divorced, and a flow master catback all for $400.

I would find a GT take off catback, have a shop fab it up so it can bolt up with true dual's modify the hangers and your done. See if you like it~ if you want more sound (louder is not going to be better just louder) then you can cut off and weld in new mufflers cheap enough.

Dude just get a new cat back and a H pipe from a junked GT and bolt it up your self just saying that's a lot for a custom made from a shop
Look: SLP cat back 499?? Why not do that?

And a H-pipe from the junk yard that won't cost more then 20 bucks
Just giving you options to save money and have a good exhaust

I guess that makes me old at 23 then lol, i prefer my exhaust to sound cleaner rather than loud. I bought mine with divorced duals and what looks like a cherrybomb on each side, and it actually sounds pretty good @ idle and up to 4k after that ofc is just like most of our V6's, the get a little whiny. I do get that nice little popping sometimes if i let off (someone once said that was hard to get in a V6 )

So I've been looking around and found another shop who will do the same work for 420. I will be dropping my car off there tomorrow morning and will have my flowmasters tomorrow afternoon. This shop has even better reviews on yelp than the first shop I was going to go to.

---------- Post added at 08:20 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:16 PM ----------

I was thinking of getting a CAI with the money I saved from American Muscle. After my exhaust upgrade I want to get a CAI, a throttle body, and a Tune. Can I get any added HP with these mods and are they worth getting for my V6?

Everything I've ever heard, dont bother with a bigger throttle body until/unless you are going up to forced induction. As for the other two, the first few things that are always suggested are (in no specific order) Intake, Exhaust, Tune, gears

Forced Induction (FI) means you have a supercharger or turbocharger, Naturally Aspirated (N/A) means you dont have a turbo or supercharger.

never be sorry about asking a question if you dont know the answer. Its almost always better to ask than to be in the dark.

I would definitely go with the flowmasters if your looking for loud sound plus quality. Also I believe they're louder than turbos by quite a bit. The neighbors will be jumping outta bed

with a good cam it can sound pretty close to big brother, the next power adder mod i plan on is SSMs power pack and 4.2/4.3 stroker kit, figure it'd be a good idea to do both at the same time rather than have to take the motor apart twice
