Exhaust question and also noise problem , help ?
I have 98 mustang v6 5 speed , it has the 3.8 .
I recently replaced the clutch , pressure plate , throw out bearing , pilot bearing , resurfaced the flywheel , and put in a new transmission (used) .
When I replace all that I had to cut the exhaust pipe , and now I have no way to put it back together , so while its like that I'm thinking about just getting a new exhaust , something to make the v6 to sound mean , any ideas ? I really like the slp loudmouth , with off road x pipes and o2 eliminators . But I don't have the money for all that , so I might just do mufflers and o2 eliminators , since I hollowed out my cats .
But what are your ideas ?
And also , one the passenger side of my car , it makes a popping noise out the exhaust , like a back fire , or a miss fire ? Any ideas on what to do ? Or what could cause it ?
