I need some advice

I just took off my muffler on my mustang and it sounds ok. But between 1 and 2k rpms it sounds like a tractor. But after that I love the sound. But now I'm thinking of taking off the whole mid pipe off where the manifolds come together. I'm goin to leave the cats and everything I just want a new sound. Will this hurt my car in anyway? Is it a good idea?

Re: I need some advice

I'm thinking it might not be a real good idea doing that! Why don't you get axle backs or all new exhaust system?

Depends on your budget and what they want for it.

I've went threw the same situation when I first got my 09 v6 but I found out that taking ur muffler off with kill ur mpg if that matters to u an it lowers ur torque also but i don't by how much an it will also mess up your calibration in your ecu ... I didnt experienced that when i toke my muffler off but that's what my ford dealership told me so if your going to run it at the track I'd leave it on for the torque because depending on your bolt on mods you maybe have 225-265 hp an your going to need all of that unless your running some rice rockets an even then some of them r really quick sometimes too ... Your best bet is to leave it on unless u r just trying to show off then if that's the case I mean do what you want it's your car but if your around anyone who knows what there doing they will know right away what your running an dont get me wrong I have a 09 v6 I got it in hs an I have every bolt on possible for it except a supercharger (that I'm about to order ) an actual motor work like cams an heads an I have maybe with my 93 oct tune 300 hp an that's kinda pushing it a little bit ... I'm not trying to be a ball buster but it just will never have that v8 sound trust me I've gone threw 4 exhaust systems an the closest one is the magnaflow competition gt exhaust :/

Well thanks for the help. It's hard to know what something is really like until I do it or talk to someone who has done it.

20s are good for looks because they look good on the stocky figure of the Mustang but 18s are best for performance.

Yea because your switching from a 2 piece drive shaft to a. 1 piece an it will have a faster rotation an if u want more power like turbo or supercharger you will have to upgrade it because your stock one Won't hold up to the hp an am doesn't I look when I was upgrading mine but I had my local speed shop custom make me for 500$ which was a lot better then the one that I found on the Internet for 700$
