Exhaust questions

When changing to a new axle back exhaust, is there any brand or exhaust that doesn't sound whiny/ricey in higher rpms? I have seen many sound amazing at low rpms but immediately lose that tone past 5k. Is this a v6 curse or can it be fixed?

Magnaflow streets, Borla touring/S, stock mufflers (manual cars come with a different set, more pronounced sound than automatics when paired with CAI)

Pair em with shorties + H pipe and you're set.

I was thinking about the MagnaFlow competition setup - the one with quad tips. Either that or Roush - nobody I know has a 3.7 that I can listen to in person though. The only "H" pipe I can find is from MAC, and it's not catted. Everything else is an X pipe from what I can find.

Magnaflow competitions and Roush are gonna be super loud as fcuk!! Not to mention head shattering drone. Just saying.

You don't have to buy a H pipe from a vendor.. just find a stock 5.0 GT h pipe, you can easily get em for $50 or less. Or ask your exhaust guy to fab you one.

Would an exhaust guy charge more to fab one than just finding one?

I'm quite certain, since he will charge you for pipe itself + labor to into H pipe. It be cheaper to find a take off GT H pipe

There's a lot of options for our cars. Personally, I haven't heard any sound really great with just the axle back mufflers and that rice sound you hear at higher rpm's is usually always present. I just don't think you can get that deep tone with a V6.

If anyone feels otherwise, I'd sure like to see a link to a sound clip.

V6 motors are hard to make sound good. If you have a V8 you could buy hi flow mufflers at Walmart and they will sound good...

In my opinion, a loud exhaust on a V6 doesn't sound very good. It takes some time and money to find the system that's right for you. A loud exhaust on our cars will sound raspy,it's the nature of the beast.

I'm using a Mac axle back right now and I like it a lot. Eventually I will do shorty headers and maybe an h pipe.

The 5.0 runs 3" pipes OEM and the 3.7 2.5" right? I'd have to use some type of reducer right?

This is the best exhaust, (my opinion)

You only need a small modification and you are set.

Would those GT500 exhausts be difficult to weld in, would this potentially ruin the connecting pipe as well?

No they are not.

The only thing you have to do is cut the pipe and weld the one you have on your car now.

I have a video let me upload it and post it. Wait

In my opinion, All V6 Exhausts sound ricey.... That's why I had to ditch my Roush Axle-Backs. They sound extremely good on video, However at high RPM's in person they sound like the boom tubes that little hondas use....

I'm adding BBK shorty headers and ford racing x-pipe this Friday, But keeping stock exhaust... I prefer the sound of my engine anyways.

You say that because you havent hear the GT500

Nice rumble sound, 0 drone, 0 vibration and everybody thinks i have a V8. Lol

Those gt500 mufflers sound good, how much did it cost you in all? Did you order those from American muscle?

PLEASE do not remove cats completely. Hi-flow cats are just great for exhaust tone. It's my opinion, but keep asking and i believe the consensus will be have 2 hi-flow cats.
-One of my best exhaust systems for V6- Check out the videos all over, I hope you take the time to check them out-
~Longtube headers (ceramic), Hi-flow cats, MAC Prochamber, Spintech 9000 mufflers OR Flowmaster 10 series mufflers. (Today, I would not pass up Dr GAS FreqMod mufflers though!!)
Good Luck! Have Fun! Exhaust is the funnest mod.

Yes, I have. Check around the forum for same subject. Ask some of the elder members that have had V6 builds. Google "V6 hi-flow cats" or V6 cat-less, no cats exhaust". It makes a raspy tone to exhaust, it removes too much low-end torque, just generally sounds funky. -& No Offense To Those Who Are Cat-Less!) Make your own judgment listening to you tube videos out there, thousands of them.

Looks like you drive an SN-95 v6? I can tell you removing the cats on these new Ti-VCT engines will 100% give you more torque and horsepower because of the way the cams can be tuned to optimize the exhaust gas pulses, something that was not possible on the older models. The only downside (immissions nonwithstanding) to removing the cats is these exhausts sound God awful... i'm doing a lot of research on how to set up my Gf's exhaust.

BTW, i had an 01 V6 i worked on a lot, you just cant compare those old motors to these newer ones.
