Welcome

If you want deeper as well as louder, steer clear of magnapacks or SLP loudmouth

Flowmasters always sound decent, but most rustangs use flowmasters... I found a set of shorty headers made a nice sound difference on my ex-02 GT (wish I still had that car heh)

Borla/magnaflow aren't bad choices either...

// others ought to chime in soon

Re: noob needs help upgrading his exhaust

personally, i prefer flowmasters. they have that optimal sound for mustangs, IMO.

Does not have the same affect on a 4.6... causes way too much drone inside the car..

Magnaflows def sound good I dont know how different they will sound on a 4.6 though

Re: noob needs help upgrading his exhaust

Forget the chokemasters and get some magnaflows. I am about to put some on my 2002 GT this week (they just came in today)...I went with the standard magnaflows instead of the magnapacks...can get a sound clip for you later this week when they go one.

That would be a sure thing type of bet. not many systems sound worse that chokemasters...or rust out or collect water as efficiently as chokemasters. :box:

I pick up the fagnaflow for the 02 GT in my driveway tonight...will get sound clips of it this weekend.

Actually, I don't like ****...but I like them on the GT because they will be quieter than borlas like I want to put on there...and since she drives the car...I will keep it toned down for a while. Plus, the **** are cheaper than the borlas. lol
