stock 2012 v6 exhaust

how good is the stock exhaust that we get in the base model v6s ? is it worth upgrading to something different , or can you add or change something on the exhaust to add power without a complete overhaul ?

The only way your warrantee will be void is if Ford can prove the exhaust is the reason for the break down. It's the same if your heavy foot blows up your motor. Ford needs to prove it is your fault.

Re: stock 2012 v6 exhaust

From what I've read the stock exhaust is also heavy!

I think 40 pounds all together. If you take them out I bet you get better mpg.

Re: stock 2012 v6 exhaust

Hi GeePoons,

I did not like my V6 sounding like a Toyota Prius (totally silent) with the stock mufflers so I put on a set of Magnaflow Streets and now it sounds like a Mustang should. I just did the axlebacks only and I really like the sound and the weight savings not counting how good the tips look. I also put in a K&N drop in air cleaner filter.

I just went on a 2,103 mile trip and my total average for the whole trip which included a lot of stop & go traffic around Washington and Baltimore and running 75.85 a lot of the time was 29.637 MPG. Not bad considering my car only had a little over 700 miles on the engine when I started out. My A/C is always on full blast and I do floor it when leaving the rest areas which I have to stop often because my dog Mario was with me and he likes to stop at every other rest area.

If I had a magic pencil like Fultonboy09 I probably would have gotten much better MPG. I just used a normal paper & pencil to get my MPG average.

Re: stock 2012 v6 exhaust

It means that "NO WAY"" possible you actually got 40 miles to a gallon with a V6 Mustang.

Not even at 25 MPH on a flat road could that be possible.

You need to check the mpg again.

I'm not here to argue with anybody but mistakes do happen when checking MPG.

This is my opinion and if you really did get 40MPG I'm really happy for you. You have a one of a kind Mustang and should call Ford to let them examine your engine so they can up their advertised MPG.

Do you have a tuner? Have you straight piped your stang? Do you have a cold air? Do you drive 65 mph? Do you take it easy on onramps? No? Oh ok then get back to me when you have done these things! But please... dont call people liars.

Re: stock 2012 v6 exhaust

I did not or never will call you a liar. I do believe you when you say you got 40MPG with a V6 mustang.

All I'm saying is you are one lucky guy to get that kind of MPG when every other 2011 up Mustang can only get up to 34 or so MPG.

Do you constantly get that MPG or only if you really try?

If you drive your car in a normal fashion what do you get?

I'm happy with my 29.6 MPG driving without trying to save gas.

Go for it. It makes your car sound like a mustang. Just find a clip of one you like and go for it.

I must have misunderstood your previous comment as being serious... sorry....

40 mpg is hwy milage only. I get that on road trips. The stang gets daily driven everyday on city streets with demands of 1k-3k rpms. During these times i get around 23-27 mpg depending on how agressive i am. Now like any other mustang when i go all out i get 15-17 mpg.

It is also beneficial to know that mine is a manual with 2.73 gears too

Re: stock 2012 v6 exhaust

My last tank involved me traveling out some roads where the speed limit is 55 (so I went 60) with a mixture of city thrown in too. I averaged 28mpg. I'm not babying her all the time and I love pushing it from 1st-2nd a lot. I'm 100% stock with about 3000 miles on the clock now.

To fulton's credit, he appears to be in Missouri. Flat roads. I have hills and small mounts to contend with constantly. Flat roads cruising, you can easily get 30s no problem.
