How can you make a 2006 Ford Mustang rumble and sound tough?

I just got a 2006 Ford Mustang for my graduation present. The problem is, is that it is automatic. Can I make it sound tough maybe with a dual exhaust or something even though it's automatic? What other parts could I use?

No matter what you do with it, a domestic V6 is always going to sound as bad as a swarm of Imports with trash can exhausts. Don't do it.

The engine you have will have more to do with the sound than the transmission.

For it to have the rumble you want, it has to have a V8.

If it has a V6, you won't get the sound you want. It will always sound like a six banger no matter what you do.

If it has a V8, go with a Flow Master Cat Back system. If you are on a budget, you could go with a Cherry Bomb glass pack.

I love Ford, but I have never heard of a 5.1L V6 lol. Dunno where that motor came from but anyways, the V6 will truly sound like garbage any day of the week. I think it actually sounds worse when custom mufflers are on it cuz it just doesn't have the rumble of might V8's. The V6 will be fine stock, don't spend all your money upgrading it. Save it and get a GT, but if you must modify the V6, then I gues go with the Ultimate in exhaust, the Kings... Flowmaster.

You neglected to include what engine you have. Regardless a larger exhaust with a free flowing muffler(s) setup will improve the tone coming out of the tailpipe. Borla and MagnaFlow make nice exhaust systems with a good note.

The Exhaust you have a link to is for a Shelby or GT both are V-8s and already are piped for Dual exhaust. You'll need to get a kit specifically designed for your V6. Below is a link to MagnaFlow's site that details what is available for your car. Make sure you look at the V6 stuff!

keep it stock, don't embarrass yourself trying up grade a v6, especially w/ exhaust, v6's w/ exhaust sound like crap. sell it and buy a little bit older GT w/ some power.

and never put glass packs on a ford, they sound like crap as well.

That exhaust is for a GT.Go on ebay and look for a Borla exhaust for a v6.I have a Borla on my 06 GT and it sounds great.

Just take off the muffler, that'll make it nice and loud, course there might be a legality issue with that, depends where you live =D Cheers

Im guessing you got a v6. Well if you dont care about legality you could chop off the exaust right after the headders.

Custom exhaust and a cold air intake. Go to Lou's Custom exhaust. Check out there website where you can hear different exhausts....
