Out the back definitely.
The others make to many weird noises and blow up dust and debris.

Re: Exhaust cat-backs?

out the back, my opinion the best. i have heard alot of arguements on turn downs being louder but they just seem to echo off the road and dull out and dont sound to good. and out the back looks ten times better then off to the side

If I sold them for $30-$35 a piece plus shipping you can prob get them new or Maybe spend $20-$30 more and order them from summit I think they are $54 a piece new !!

turndowns are louder but resonate more so they are more annoying inside the vehicle, and if your car runs right it can cause the inside to smell

If you drag race or spend ALL your time over 4Grand turn downs work well. Especially if you are spraying it. From someone who had turn downs on a daily driver for a couple years these guys are right about noise, smell, dust etc. The worst part is if you don't have serious mods beyond bolt-ons the low-end power will suffer greatly b/c of back pressure loss. It will feel GUTLESS! the positive is that you can leave the line alot harder at the drag strip. *my personal exp*

Nice! You may consider 3" pipe over 2.5"
To alleviate some of that tire shredding low end I'm sure you have! Just a thought as 3" maybe too big, and 2.5" maybe kinda small. Would be fantastic if 2.75" were available.

Actually run a 2.5 mid pipe and a 3" cat back, it's almost as much hp as open headers.

Some one hacked my stock mid pipe and welded in 2.5" hand built pipe with no equalizer pipe. It's like that past the rear end and the stock pipes have been off in favor of some gigantic 3.5" tips from the rear end back. Sounds "ok" but looks like turd(whole system). I will be purchasing an off road H pipe, and some stock tail pipes. I feel like my car, an automatic will benefit from the back pressure the stock tail pipes will add V. 3.5" 'Redneck chevy truck pipes'. Thoughts? Opinions? I have CAI, 160Degree thermo, and that programing selector are the only mods I know of.

Cars do not need back pressure, it actually hinders performance. You want something that will scavenge the exhaust which alleviates back pressure.

In my exp this is only true to a certain extent. Example, un bolt your mufflers from your H or X pipe, let the tail pipes rest on the rear bumper. Then go drive around town. Your ride will sound wicked fast, but unless you have a built motor it will run like sh¡t. Especially around town in lower RPM. again this just my exp. when I put the turn downs on my first 95 you couldn't just let the clutch out normally and stomp it and smoke the tires like before, although once you got to like 4,500 RPM they would spin out from underneath the car. At the drag strip I went from launching at just over idle to control wheel spin to leaving at just under 3,000 RPM. not saying turn downs, open headers don't/can't make more power, I'm saying that it moves the power further up the RPM range. Where personally I won't be spending much time. Again just my limited exp. My 87 had worked heads and a cam. And turn downs did not affect the bottom end that I noticed.

They have tail pipes? Mufflers? I've been away from stangs for far too long. I see stuff on here, mostly companies that I don't recognize. Like AM I see people Mention alot. I'll probably end up at LKQ, and just hack some off a junker. I'm infatuated with the stock brushed stainless look.
