What exhaust should i get

I have a 1968 mustang that I'm restoring and I need to put exhaust on it. I want it to sound pretty good and be somewhat loud but not to loud. Any suggestions?

I ran 2 1/2" from the collectors out the rear with flex tubes, H pipe, and Flowmaster series 30's. Im very happy with how it sounds and looks.

Since it's a classic just do flowmasters I guess, or just run longtubes with straight pipes

Here is my car in it's current stage and I am pulling the motor And tranny out next week. It needs new mufflers for sure but I was wondering if I could just buy an entire kit that I can bolt right up or if I'll have to take it to a muffler shop to get it to fit. Thanks!

And so it's just already molded to fit? I shouldn't have to get a shop to bend them to fit? Thanks!

Only thing is you have to connect the pipe to your collector i think you gotta weld it together

I got the flowmaster American thunder series from cj ponyparts with supper 44 mufflers in all stainless... It was a little pricy but it sounds great and looks even better

i'm running hooker long tubes , X-pipe , flowmaster 40's . 2.5 in pipe, sounds good and not too loud. I used local muffler shop for custom fab, ( pre bent pipes may not work with aftermarket sway bars or other suspension mods) plus I wanted pipes tucked well out of sight. local shops often can cost less and you can choose good quality pipe.
