Pro chamber exhaust thing for 2014

Hey guys, happy Friday! Keep em shots rolling.. Lol on a more serious note, I came across this Pro chamber setup that supposedly makes your exhaust think its a 180 degree tuned header (much like a GT).

From my understanding, its a mid pipe design right? MAC website says its not emissions legal and is meant only for off road purposes. Does it connect straight to your headers by getting rid of your cats?

Also, is there one available for our 2014 6ers? Does anyone have personal experience with it and know what sorta difference they've made to your exhaust's sound? I have factory muflers with CAI and tune atm.

Cheers! Enjoy the olympics lol

It depends on which one you get. There is one that connects to your cats and is emissions legal. Others require you to remove your cats and mount to either mac long tunes or shorties

My friend has one on his 2005 v6 and it sounds awesome. Sounds deeper at idle and sounds like a slight cam.

Yes, the pro-chamber is just another type of midpipe like x-pipes and h-pipes

The Mac Pro-chamber is still new, so most sites won't carry it yet. And the one that connects to your oem cats will require you or a shop to do some cutting and welding since the cats are part of the stock midpipe

I'm getting this mid pipe soon. I've heard it sound good on the 3.8 and 4.0. A lot of GT guys have them. Ever hear a GT kinda have that hollow roar to it, that's a pro chamber generally. AM sells the full length for $520 I believe.

From what I've read, there are two version available for 3.7 : one that connects straight to your headers (meaning catless), and the other one connects to your factory cats. It doesn't come with cats itself

Has someone had personal experience with this prochamber midpipe on their 3.7s? Did you notice any change in sound?

The GT version does not have a good history. Hangs to low for lowered cars, fittment issues, sound issues, quality issues.
I have not experienced the v6 version.

+1 on this. I would consider a catted h/x instead of the prochamber. I'm a Mac fan but not on this mid pipe.

They are both no cats. One is for the manifold back. The other is if you have shorty headers and replaced the cats and the entire mid pipe.

The pro-chamber is not a new thing.

They have been used on short track race cars for the past 50 or 60 years because they do help with torque at the lower RPM's.
I have not heard or seen any used on a late engined street car but I'm betting the sound would be great as well as inhancing performance at the lower RPM's
We had one on the race car with both pipes coming out of the box to the right side side.
( Look under the #17)
It worked very well and addied enough back pressure that we still had very good torque to use on the shorter tracks.


I'm sure these would probably be good on a street car as long as is does not hang down under the car to far to hit everything on the road.

Awesome, thanks! So 'theoretically' speaking, someone like me who would like his exhaust sound to be slightly deeper but not loud and is looking for a bit of torque in low rpms, these pro chambers would be a better idea than spending money on shorties and/or axlebacks?

It's really hard to say

Nobody seems to have one on a 3.7 V6 yet. All I can tell you is to go ahead and try it. Then you can let us know how you like it. I think the sound would still depend on what mufflers you have. My thinking is the car would sound good with the Magnaflow streets, Borla touring or Ford Racing Touring. All of these Mufflers are a deeper less raspy sound to start with. Adding the Pro-Chamber would probably sound great and perform really good with any of these mufflers. It's really hard to say anything until someone bites the bullet and gets a pro-chamber installed.
If you get it, Please keep us informed on how it went on and if it hangs down to low and sound /performance quality.
Ronnie

Also if you have shorties it deepens even more. I have flows and they are very raspy. Not the roush harsh rasp, just tamer. My plan is the Mac Pro chamber and shorties. It'll give depth

You know that I am a big fan of the ProChamber. Have one on the 3.8 and the 4.64V. Performance increase is given on any platform, how much depends on other mod factors. It simply sounds awesome.
The O/R ProChamber has room for hi-flow cats that usually measure out to 11", placed within the straight portion of pipe. MAC stopped offering catted versions due to warranty issues.
I just ordered 2 Thunderbolt hi-flow cats, 4 butt clamps, 4 Co2 sensors, Co2 extensions for the Cobra.
2 5" Thunderbolt Catalytic Converter High Flow Stainless Steel | eBay
Dynomax 33226 Dynomax Strap Band Clamps - Free Shipping on All Orders @ JEGS
I would LOVE to hear one on your engine. It will be the best sounding around.

If you delete the cats, the car will be LOUD.
And deafening as well..
Ask whitelightning about my car XD

I'm inclining towards buying it once I've my tax returns back. I'm sorta on budget atm since gears alone are going to cost me $800 (with parts n labor). My stock exhaust has become louder over the course of time and together with the rumble from the CAI, I LOVE it!! I guess pro chambers would be a perfect compliment to my ears

ProChamber produces a deeper tone. Flows great, sound is what most people go for.

Dyno runs show increased HP on any platform, how much depends on pipe diameter, cat/catless, and tuning programming. Too large of exhaust piping and removing cats can change peak HP ranges. Provides better torque & HP over other mid-pipes.
EXAMPLES of adding a ProChamber:

MAC Ford Mustang Cobra 4.6L V8 99-04 Off Road Pro Chamber to Stock

Here is one on the older 3.8L. Off road which is what it comes as from Mac. I'm a fan of the hollow sound. Throw some cams in and it'll sound Shweet.

Sounds good. I wonder how much different the 3.7 will sound with it. The 3.8 is a 90degree v6 and the 3.7 I believe is more like the 60degree v6. I know the 4.3 chevy 90degree v6 and the 2.8 60degree v6 have different tones.
