Loud exhaust

Hey guys. I already had a "dual exhaust" which was really just a y pipe. I bought the h pipe conversion kit you guys recommended but haven't put it on yet. I was wondering if something like the slp loudmouth would make it louder or if I should just get a flow master muffler. I want it to be pretty loud but also a low grumble.

How does an x pipe sound ricey? It performs better over the h. The only "ricey" thing is it is more raspy. I have no rasp really with chambered mufflers.

On a v6 it sounds ricey. High pitch.

Look up some exhaust clips that use a prochamber midpipe, i think that sounds the best. The mufflers are up to you.

Loudmouths will be loud but be careful with the v6.

You have a V8, it will be naturally deeper than a V6.

Stay away from x pipes and y pipes(if you waste your money on y pipes you don't deserve to drive a mustang) I got straight pipes with flow 40s and honestly mine gets raspy at 3k as well. Can't really do much about it that's just what happens with a v6. But if you really want to make it sound as good as possible put a cam in an some long tube headers you'll get the best sound you can get.

There are a Buncha guys on here who say a prochamber with flow 10's is the best set up for the v6. While it's expensive, it's also loud and sounds amazing (according to them, I've never heard it)

Does a pro chamber mess with your emissions?

I believe they're ONLY catless, but you CAN put cats on it, a shop can do it, or if you know/have the tools to cut/weld them on, then you could do it yourself.

+1. It's an off road prochamber, which means the removal of your cats

I have a question, I'm running Mac dual on a stock Y pipe and I love the sound, I bought the H pipe adapter and a used slp loudmouth 2 that I'll install soon, will this combination give me a better sound than the Mac on the Y pipe?? I'm not looking for a very loud sound but I'm afraid that the slp on H pipe will be bad!

Go with X

H pipe sound better with chamber mufflers

X pipe is better for free flow mufflers ( built)

A O/R mac prochamber, mac long tubes, with flow 10's and 2 1/2" tubing and you will love it. Cam it too and you will have a nice loud aggressive exhaust that'll give you a stiffy every time you start it, and even more so once you hit 2500 rpm.

I couldn't find an x pipe ready to bolt on the v6, I believe I need to get a GT one and fabricate it in the shop to fit, I have to keep the cats for the state emission.

I paid 279.00 for mine. I would pay triple that in a heartbeat. They are a must. I went through half a dozen different setups.

1. All cats on, flowmaster 40s, 18" × 3" rolled tips, stock size piping, 2 1/4". ( slightly more aggressive and a little louder than stock )
2. No cats, divorced pipes, flow 40s, same tips, same tubing (a good bit louder than stock, but sounds like an 80 year old tractor)
3. No cats, h pipe, flow 40s, same tips and tubing ( same as above, but less tractor like )
4. No cats, h pipe and slps, same tips and tubing ( louder, but sounded like a 1987 Toyota Corolla with a rusted out exhaust )
5. No cat, h pipe, flow 40s dumped before the axle (worst sound, no burble, horrible cabin drone, and sounds like it had a fart can )
6. No cats, prochamber, flow 10s, all tubing upped to 2 1/2", same tips. (Best sounding setup bar none)

Wow you went through a lot of different set ups.. Haha glad you got it where you want it now. I have the Borla Stinger catback and have the Mac Prochamber coming in the mail today. Hoping it's not obnoxiously loud but is just right!

#6 ftw. But doesn't the 2 1/2" tubing make less power?

No noticeable difference in performance, just changes the tone. If anything it does better at 70+ mph
