06 GT Exhaust question

Quick question, so I have a 06' GT with stock headers, stock mufflers, but an offroad xpipe. It's already very loud but i'm looking for something more in terms of sound and depth. There is a whine in between 1000-2500 rpms which is quite annoying and i'd like an axle back that is going to get rid of the whine and make the exhuast deeper and sound better overall. Any feedback is appreciated

I agree. Magnaflow streets will not make it much louder but the sound and tone will be greatly improved. I used to have that setup (with long tube headers and offroad H-pipe) and it sounded really good without being crazy loud.

As for Magnaflow. One of the top quality exhaust you can buy for any platform really. All of their product and welding and fit is all top notch. And the price is right too.

Magnaflow is just as good, if not better than other manufacturers. Their quality is in the same wheelhouse as Gibson, Borla, Corsa, Flowmaster, etc.

Magnaflow makes a great product.

06 GT Exhaust question

Magnaflow is a great product. Though the only muffler I care for by them is the Magnapacks. Another muffler you can consider is Borla S types or touring. I'd say Flowmaster is out being the outlaws only sound ok on a stock exhaust system. And the chambered mufflers really need to be in front of the axle to sound good.
I have Roush Extreme and FR500S on both of my 3V's. Given the Extreme is resonators and the FR is a Borla variant. Very pleased with both.


Pick your poison.

Flowmaster got voted out of that house a LONG time ago. Their exhausts are mostly aluminized and flows are probably the most played out mufflers. I'm sad that my temp catback I have for my IRS car is a flowmaster setup but it'll only be temp till I get some Bassanis on there.

I never had any issues with flows other than the noise on the highway and the rust from them not being stainless except the tips.

My last experience with flowmasters on any car I owned was my 91GT in the early 2000s. I got home from a 2 hour drive and my ears were ringing. It was just headers, O/R pipe and 40s. Wound up selling that car shortly after for other reasons and my next catback was a Dynomax. That is another very underrated muffler, the Dynomax Ultraflow. Sounds like a combination of Fergi and Jesus and does not drone and is stainless.

The stainless Flowmasters are pretty decent. Have one on one of our cars and it's held up nicely. Even with a turbo sitting right in front of it.

Don't be mean to people in the forum please as a senior member. Flowmaster Outlaws are great and they're stainless steel now don't judge something based upon you having it 17 years ago that's just plain ignorant

While it's true that Flowmaster now uses stainless steel for their exhaust, they do still maintain their nickname: dronemasters.

Flowmaster has been around so long... For me, it's because so many Mustangs had them back in the day that I wanted something different. I think they still sound pretty good and really, many of the other catbacks out there drone too.

OP, I was going to buy the full size Magnaflow Streets (I think that was their name) for my Mach, but I happened to see Borla S-Types on sale on Summit Racing's site for $419 lol. I couldn't pass that up. That turned out great, but they are a little louder than I was looking for at the time. I knew I was going with an offroad midpipe with them.

I agree they're a little steep in the price but you can never go wrong with Borla if you have the money..
