I bought Pypes l/t headers and o/r x-pype...from 2000-2500 rpm i love it after that it's too loud for me...If i throw cats on it will it go to the other extreme where you can't tell I did anything to it??
Thank for any help!!

If you throw some high-flow cats on there, it will definitely tone the exhaust down. However, it will be far form quiet. You'll certainly be able to tell there's more than a cat-back done to the car.

From what it sounds like, high flow cats will are your best option!

I'd try a muffler before you bought cats but it's up to you

No problem! Just to clarify, I'm not talking about buying a new mid-pipe. Just pick up some single/universal catalytic converts from Magnaflow or elsewhere and have them welded in. I had this done to my H/C '95 GT a few years back and it gave my Mustang the perfect tone, IMO.

Of course, you could always change the mufflers too, but there's Pro's & Con's to both options.

A.M. sells the pypes high flow cats....which should fit with the pypes l/t headers and pypes shorty x-pype I have...they are way cheaper than me trying to find mufflers...but are they high flow enough..to get rid of that ear splitting sound after 3000 rpms, but not to quiet it down too much??

Thanks

Alan

Pypes Catalytic Converts are great too. They Ceramic and very high flowing, which will give you a nice medium. I think you'll be happy with them, personally. Again, buying new mufflers is always another option, I just prefer the sound of high-flow cats!

That sounds like a good plan man just make sure they are good high flow cats don't go cheap in any way.
