Everyone on here is going to say offroad x and loudmouths....dont get that combo. If you feel like swapping mid pipe every year for emissions then go for an O/R H, a high flow H if not. Then either a flowmaster 40 or 44 catback. Had an H and super 44s on my 90 gt and it sounded great but didnt blow your eara out

Stanger27,

Could you give me a little more feedback about your current setup? Are you looking for a full exhaust system, or just a cat-back? I'm assuming your 5.0 has stock cylinder heads?

Get back to me and we'll figure something out based upon your application!

EVERYONE will give you a different opinion. It is all preference based. Go on youtube and listen to clips, talk to the guys at american muscle or late model resto (if you prefer)

what I had

On my first stang, an 89' LX 5.0 vert I had mac short tube headers, Mac 2 1/2" high flow cat H-pipe, and Dynomax Turboflow welded mufflers with 2 1/2" polished tail pipes. It had that classic muscle car tone but was not loud or offensive. It sounded so good cruising back roads with the top down.

Quiet under cruise so it doesn't drone in the car and when you open it up "ROAR"!!!!!

+1. They are great.


It really is about personal preference. Just take some time to do ur homework. It can get as loud and obnoxious as u want or be a silent predator when u hit the throttle.

Throw on a set of headphones and have a listen to YouTube videos. Sure there's lots there.

Do a single high flow conversion, so much more power when it's all packed and flowing more smooth through one long straight tube than being in even in two tubes

^^ don't really see the logic in doing single exhaust? From what I can recall they are not very good. And it will make his car look like a sixxer. Unless he is going to upgrade the sizing of the pipe but seems like a lot of work for nothing.

^^ and if he does upgrade the size of the pipe you might as well upgrade the size with the dual exhaust system. There is a reason they have been putting dual exhaust on sports cars for a long time.

Yes it needs to be about three inches all the way through and you really feel the power gain

Single exhausts can work effectively, ground clearance is usually the issue as well as overall sound level associated with large tubes. Going from 2 &1/2 in dual exhaust you would have to be slightly over 3in for equivalent performance, though with a single exhaust, scavenging can be improved.

Dual exhaust is proven for over 50yrs to create more power and flow...my truck had a single y pipe...as soon as I made it dual it ran a lot harder....

Dual exhausts hurt performance with single bank exhausts like 4-5 cylinder cars, I know we are talking about a V8 right now but I want people to be well informed and not talk in generalizations like dual exhausts = sports car etc

If u put a larger y pipe it would loose low end torque anyways...and sound worst but this is off the op topic anyways..

The headers and collectors matter much more than a Y, H or X pipe size for torque

Do you own a 6? And most sixxers I see sport the dual conversion, I'm no expert but most sport package cars come with dual exhaust.

You are correct I should have cleared that up. Most 4 cylinder sports cars come with single exhaust. And also for a lot of other cars it is cheaper for the company to make a car with single exhaust.

I have read that article before, as I was saying they are comparing two non equivalent setups. That's like saying an engine running with a 100 shot of nitrous oxide will outperform a car that doesn't have any modifications...

I am talking about a y-pipe of equivalent cross sectional area say 3.25in into a 3.25in muffler vs a 2in or 2.25in h-pipe into two 2.25 in mufflers

---------- Post added at 07:50 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:47 PM ----------

This is all besides the point. OP go on youtube listen to clips of different exhaust setups, go to car shows hear exhausts in person. Talk to the good folks at American Muscles. Those are the best ways to find an exhaust setup that fits
