New car, upgrades?? 07 4.0

I bought a 2007 4.0 yesterday and it's a virgin car so just wondering if I should go intake or exhaust upgrades first. They will only be a few months apart. And what setups have you had the best luck with? Not wanting to break the bank with "ford racing" just for the name. All suggestions appreciated. I'm looking for the deepest throaty sound I can get out of a V6

Since I have a V6 would I be better staying with a single exhaust to get better back pressure and keep my torque? I know if I go true duals with headers, high flow cats/ mufflers I will see gains in HP but I would rather keep my torque up. My end goal is to get to 235 - 240 rwtq and hopefully see 200-210 hp with it. Anyone have these numbers that can share advice?

Duals or just a single flowmaster? My 2006 I had 4 years ago had duals but I'm considering going single this time around

Its single right now but a lot of people suggest going dual because you get a little deeper sound out of it

Do exhaust first.

Forget the whole back pressure thing with a single, go duals. Pypes makes a $500 conversion or something but everyone says their fitment sucks and modifications has to be done to install it correctly.

I had the Ford Racing True Dual Exhaust and it was great, worth the $680. Except eventually I wanted louder sound so I bought Borla Stingers for $420 and bolted those up. Exhaust ain't cheap but it's worth it.

Is there anyone who can show me dunno numbers before and after swapping out ONLY the exhaust? I would really like to see a sheet from duals and one from single with a good muffler and high flow cat. If I can get any extra torque rather than any extra HP I'd rather have torque

If you want to put that power to the ground evenly I would recommend getting a Limited Slip. Right now you have one wheel spinning which leads to embarrassing burnouts and a little slower acceleration.

Hello,

Congrats on the car! As I have recommended in all exhaust threads I have posted on, I would do MAC all the way on the V6. I have spent hours and hours researching exhaust, listening to clips and the comparing price; MAC is the deepest and throatiest out there for the V6. If you look on YouTube you can find many clips with the Y-pipe and MAC mufflers and they are deeper and throatier than any of the others and that's without a H-pipe. I bought the MAC GT mufflers and am having a custom H-pipe and pipes going over the axle done so I can be louder, throatier and deeper. I will post results as soon as I get it all done. The quality of the mufflers is great and the 4in tips are to die for visually. That is the product of my hours of research and is what I recommend for you.

Thank you,

Aventador97

I'm looking around at the auburn LSD and then upgrading the driveshaft and gears but I have been looking on Craigslist for 8.8 rear ends to swap in too. AM also has a fully assembled ford racing 8.8 rear end for like $1200 that sounds pretty nice. Haven't decided yet but all I know is I want to upgrade and soon.
