Exhaust is driving me crazy, cant find much on exhaust for 67

Like the title says I am having major difficulty choosing an exhaust for my 67 Mustang. Car has a built 289 bored 40 over with 292 circle trac cam. I am looking for a good rumble without a lot of rasp and popping. I am planning on putting some cutouts right after the header at some point. I am pretty stuck between choosing Borla and Flowmaster, I generally love the sound of borla but I have never heard them on a cammed 289. What are your thoughts or suggestions?

Borla>flow master.
Better quality better sound

Can't go wrong with H-pipe and borla exhaust

My uncle has a 289 with a cam. I am not sure what muffler he uses but he does have a x pipe. When the car is idling it shakes. Sorry, I do not know his exact setup.

Well........ tried to start my car and there was a loud clank. Sent a chill up my spine. I feel numb. This sucks. There are a lot of wires that are not hooked up, like a red one from the ignition. Im praying my engine didnt just seize up.

Sounds like starter is hitting a brick wall

Whenever you get back to your exhaust issue (hopefully soon and as cheaply as possible
Hahaha) I have the header back American thunder kit from flowmaster with the super, 44's. It's a smooth deep tone at idle and when cruising but when you flat-foot it and the revs climb it gets that nice throaty growl

I really hope so too. Awesome, I am a fan of the 44s. Is there any drone with it?

I have the super 44's, I've posted on them before. They are the BEST for our type of cars. I think borla is very good but better on some more recent mustangs...I've had so many compliments on my exhaust at car shows: " bro! That's the best old school sound!!" Is what I hear all the time. You can't go wrong with flow master.

I am still stuck between flow master and borla. Could you put a sound clip of your set up with the Super 44's? I do think those are the best flow masters. I am pretty worried about the drone. I've also heard they sound better with H pipe than borla and I want to run an h pipe for sure. I am worried the H won't sound as good with brola.

Not sure of the brand but I got the specs of the cam. I find it a little sluggish on the bottom end. After about 3000rpm it opens up good. More for drag racing than road tracing. I'll change it one day for sure. If u want the specs I'll post them...

I was just curious on what size you had. I have really aggressive one on my 289 and I'm worried about drive ability on the street. But your 390 could handle a bigger cam easier I'm sure. Yours sounds good though. Nice classic American growl with a little kick to it.

Oh ya for sure, look I shouldn't complain. The 390 is full of torque but what spec do you need for he cam? It is an aggressive one also.

I don't really need any specs. I was just curious if you knew the size. I have a 292 circle track on my 289. It rocked back and forth haha

Lol, I think I'm gonna keep this 390 in for now and I have another BB390 that later on I'm gonna send to an engine builder....aluminum heads and intake. I wanna build a 390track monster!!! Everyone told me to stick to a small block crate motor, but I wanna build that 390 to run circles around some of the deuch bags at the track.

That would be awesome. I am looking forward to seeing that when its all done. Im sure a 390 is capable of big power. I'm about to get mine rebuilt. It needs it. I'm hoping to rebuild/build it to around 300 hp.

A little of both. Mainly street with the occasional track driving. But I am on an extreme budget and the engine has been built already. Just don't know how much power it has. And it needs a rebuild. So I figured while it's being rebuilt if I can add heads or something to get me to the power I want then I might as well.

I get it, something I should of done from the beginning. The engine has about 350-375hp right now, but when I first picked up my fastback I didn't think I'd want to put it on a track....oh well.

I hope you take your time and get the setup just the way you want it.
