Ah okay lol. Kooks and arh are the best quality and spendy because of it. Personally Jba is the cheapest one I would get. Quality is great.

The top quality brands/fit are (no particular order):
Kooks
ARH (American Racing)
Stainless Works

I got my Kooks and off road x-pipe from Marylandspeed ( Welcome : MarylandSpeed.com- Your First Stop on the Way to Performance! ). Call as I think phone orders give you a better price.

Pacesetter Long tubes , Pacesetter Mid pipe.. for a affordable setup.

No use spending 1000+ on exhaust.
That could go towards more things imo.

Just beware the pacesetter stuff is a rust fest if you drive in any sort of weather.

You can always just get the pacesetter exhaust heat coated or ceramic coated if your worried about them rusting up ..
It'll still be cheaper than most brands.

Yep but price that all out for the pacesetter stuff and call around and see what a good blasting and coating will cost. Locally for me for just longtube headers was $330. Plus the mid pipe is going to be probably another $100 at least. This is for a full legit blasting and inside/out ceramic coating. You might as well buy SLP at that point if you are going to look at the least expensive in the end Ceramic setup plus the SLP is stainless.

Also remember that the pacesetter/bbk/mac and even the SLP are not equal length primaries. This means no scavenging which means you aren't really getting any benefit from them except a little more free flowing. If you are getting longtubes, and going through all the trouble for them you might as well get a legit equal length primary set of stainless coated ones. This means ARH or Kooks. That is why you spend "1000+ on exhaust".

People always have the money to do it right the second time...

Lmao that last part... This is why I went with Kooks after seeing a set of pace setters my buddy put on his truck I vowed to never cheap out on this mod. I mean his pace setters paint was already chipping right out of the box...

Well yeah the Pacesetter paint is actually only there to keep them from getting damaged or corroded during shipping. It will burn off/flake off shortly after install. It is not meant to hold up on the car.

Lots of people on here do. But for shorties you really won't see much gain over the stock manifolds. The stock manifolds on the 4.6L are not really restrictive like the stock headers were on the 95-down cars.


Good basic exhaust combo is to leave the stock manifolds alone, do an aftermarket mid pipe and a catback of your choice. Cost effective, good power boost, good boost in sound and will only take a few hours with hand tools and minimal swearing to install.

What about a shorty h-pipe and long tube headers. Or is it not really worth it?

It's definitely worth it to go long tubes and your choice of mid pipe. Rule of thumb is to go with the company that makes your long tubes to go with their mid pipe as well. As in most cases mix matching long tubes and mid pipes won't mate up if from different companies.

Best budget exhaust that works great and sounds great and installs in an afternoon is the stock manifolds, UPR X pipe and catback of your choice. Looking at about $500-$800 total depending on what you get and if you need cats. I got the catted pipe personally because I don't feel like giving a cop any excuse to be a real prick although the military ID usually keeps that from happening.
