Re: need it louder

Headers, H or X pipe, and mufflers of your choice. I like Flowmasters on 5.0's, they just drone a little, but I don't mind it. My vert has Mac shorties, H Pipe, Flowmaster 40's, and it's dumped at the axle. Nice and loud for me!

What if I just got mufflers on my exhaust as it is no x pipe or anything would that do anything or should I stick with getting the x pipe

Re: need it louder

if an axle back isnt cutting it (and they are the little round mufflers) you can either take the cats off or remove the mufflers all together~ on 05+ no mufflers isnt to bad.

Before my project build on my 94 5.0, at the time was 90% stock with Bassani Headers, Bassani X-pipe with cats and flowmaster American thunder catbacks and it has an awesome deep sound to it!

1. wouldn't taking off the cats cause the check engine light to come on? I have an 07.

2. I've heard that for the GT's an H pipe will give you a much more throaty sound at idle and on the go. So when I can afford it, I'm going with the H.

You get the MIL plug in to get you CEL to turn off.
