I have flowmasters with an H pipe but mine is an 04 V6. I'm happy with mine and it sounds pretty mean. Yours being a GT, I would go x and flows. I think it will sound good.

No, but I've also only had H-pipes on mine. I've never owned one with an x, personally. Maybe because an x would be way too much on sixxer. I think GT's sound pretty good with them.

I have a xpipe but the H sounds better. The slightest of horsepower gains should not make a big difference.

Re: flowmaster

I've said it once and I'll say it again....Most Flowmasters sound like boats to me...but if you find a good one with a deep sound I say go for it!

Re: flowmaster

You got a v8, you can't go wrong any way you choose, except maybe straight pipes...that may be pushing it, lol.

My buddy has the same setup on his GT...sounds pretty good. He did have to replace a muffler though, it rusted out to the point of needing replacement. Other than that he's been happy with the system.

I've had flowmasters on my car with an x pipe....def a mean sound and very aggressive. My cons about flows are they are very hard to fit just right I always had a rattle Boise some were from them and they shifted and didnt know and the flows rubbed an indent on my axle.

I prefer MAC cutback and o/r h-pipe.... great sound. I get more compliments out of this system. Oh and MAC is cheaper to buy (TREperformance.com) cat back $313 and h $149 no shipping cost.

I have a bassani X pipe and Flow original 40s and it sounds awesome. Get tons of compliments. And honestly.. I don't even use the radio anymore because it just sounds so amazing. Haha.

But I've also heard nothing but good things about MAC systems.

It's just preference. The GTs all sound mean as hell with whatever you do. Just don't do straights.. Way too loud.

Mac prochamber is the best sounding exhaust I have ever heard. Bassani is also a great product

Re: flowmaster

I'll probably be switching my Flowmasters for Borla on the Vert. Love the way those sound.

Personally I've always preferred chambered mufflers like Flowmasters to the straight through mufflers like Borlas. I'll also second the Mac Prochamber as the best sounding midpipe. It has a very unique sound.

I've always felt the X-pipe and straight through muffler combo ends up sounding more like an exotic Euro car than a Mustang, but that's just me. I'll stick to my boat motor sound...

i agree with bbunt on the euro sound... ive got bbk off road x-pipe and mac cat back. it sets off car alarms just idling through wal-mart parking lot. however, i enjoy not sounding like everyone else's flowmastered mustang. flowmasters has become a staple in the mustang world, and i applaud anyone who has a unique exhaust note that is different than the typical flowmaster rumble.

also, i dont mean any disrespect to anyone who has a flowmaster system... i got sum 40's hang'n up in my garage now.

Me and Everett have been pushing Mac cat backs to everyone. Once you've heard them, flowmasters just don't cut it any more. I'm tempted to put a set on the cobra but I don't need a chambered muffler. Love the Mac system.
