Exhaust Help for 2V

Recently a post went up about what is the best sounding exhaust system for our modular motors. However it seemed that most everyone that responded had a 4V and that doesn't really help me since I'm not fortunate enough to own one... SO what is the best way to go for a 2V??

Imo, if you stay catted, you can run whatever. Theyll all sound somewhat similar. I have flowmaster, with stock manifolds and h pipe. Sounds super clean.

And dont you dare say you arent fortunate enough to have a 4v. At least you wont be blowing head gaskets!!

The 2v's can make power, its the bottom ends that cant handle past 500rwhp. : /

I have a 2v and there's a few types that sound good, it's just up to u on what u like. 40's flows are a really good sound with an off road midpipe. Mac exhaust is kinda like flowmaster except cheaper. If u want something raspy and loud then slp loudmouth, pypes violators and are alot like slp, borlas are my favorite, best sound there's is on both 2v and 4v. Magna flow the sound is good and really muffled but produces great power. My advise to u is, go on YouTube and listen to exhaust clips and found out what u like...

I have an O/R H with borla Stingers, Sounds killer at idle, and when you are really on it, she sounds exactly like an old muscle car....

Go with steeda. Deep and somewhat quiet at idle. Open it up and they get pretty loud but not obnoxious. Ive had everything on the last 7 mustangs ive owned and never had compliments like i get with the steedas. I hear they are made by borla as well.

Depends on what you wanta spend, steeda is good stuff but expensive. I got my whole setup for the price you would pay for just a cat back if you went with steeda. Long tubes x pipe and mufflers and tail pipes for 650 from MAC.

Re: Exhaust Help for 2V

It depends on the sound you like....I never cared for Magnaflow on my 2V.

I'm partial to chambered mufflers on a 2V....something like a MAC.

Another GREAT sounding option is Bassani.

Right now I'm running stock manifolds, cats and h-pipe with dual flow super 44's. I love the sound but would like just a little more deep rumble. I'm considering switching the h-pipe to an off road H

Get an X pipe, will sound better. And defiantly off road if you have no emissions. Will need mil adapters if you go with the off road one.

It's a matter of opinion...

If you have emissions you will have to keep a catted pipe on the car. Do not buy anything offroad.


You will get as many different responses to this as there are cars on the road. I'd recommend listening to clips online and decide on a setup from there.

My wife has offroad H and quite borlas on her car. It's not unbearable driving down the road and definitely opens up when you get on it.

I have bassani catted x with bassani mid length headers and flow 40s and I think it's awesome. Loud as hell when you want it to be but under 2k sounds comfortable.

As far as emissions, if its like here they won't tail pipe test your yr car. Will be done through the obd2 port. I have no cats and pass every time. Just get mil adapters to turn the check engine light off.
