GT Exhaust Question

Can anyone tell me what to look for in an axle back system that will give me the growl that I'm looking for?

Re: GT Exhaust Question

Depending on the brand, the mufflers will be chambered. 2 and 3 chambered are most common. Straight thru are loud, but can lose backpressure. 3 and 4 chambered are the most quiet, flowmaster make 2-4 chambered mufflers. The magnaflow magnapack system is loud as all hell, it uses a round tube style resonator. That has a nice growl to it. It really is a personal preference.

I'd check some sound vids online. Your best bet is to try and hear some in person, becuase cameras don't always do justice.

Re: GT Exhaust Question

Much appreciated. I've listened to a few, and I agree that it just isn't the same as in person. Have you heard that the Pypes brand is an uneven install on the right pipe?

Re: GT Exhaust Question

I haven't heard anything about the axle back systems from pypes. I have heard a couple GT's with them and they sounded pretty good, not sure as far as install issues.

I have heard that some converter back/catback systems from them didn't always fit correctly on the 99-04 v6's, mine including, but nothing about the s197's.

Re: GT Exhaust Question

one of the best for the money is ford racing's setup, they are the same as the borla cat back (little round mufflers) and sound pretty good.

Re: GT Exhaust Question

I scoped out the video(s) online. That was okay-and actually helped me with the decision. I have previous experience with SLP, Magnaflow,Flowmaster and Bassani. I went with the Borla Stinger axle back. It took a little adjusting. I was getting used to the "quieter" factory mufflers-and had to regroup a little-right after the install. I appreciate them now-and have been asked by other folks-"is that a stock exhaust note-it sounds great"..Which only enhances my appreciation. You will not regret it.
