Help! Im a beginner lol

I want to put a loud exhaust on my 2014 V6, but I honestly don't even know what brand to buy or where to find a good price? Do I just order one online and have a muffler shop instal it? I feel stupid, but someone please help!

Loud and good are usually mutually exclusive. You could just cut the mufflers off and it will be plenty loud. Search Youtube "mustang 3.7 exhaust" and find the sound you like. Then look at ordering parts. You could have a muffler shop install it, but axle-back exhaust should be pretty easy with basic hand tools and a jack/stands.

Most people go with borla, or roush. I personally went with the roush axle backs because I enjoyed the sound. As stated above YouTube is great for finding a sound you enjoy

Yeah, I think I like the Roush ones best! Are they all generally around $500?

Keep in mind though if you do any more exhaust work like headers and mid pipe the rousch might not sound very good anymore.

other ideas.....one of the loudest are Pype Bombs, but lots of people don't like them after a while but you can then score them used for a great price. I bought Bassani used and like them with what I call a European sound. Be aware a V6 will never sound like a V8. Used are out there and you can save along with installing yourself or with a buddy (offer lunch!) good luck and welcome to a respectable addiction.

Often you can find used Mustang parts for cheap on craigslist. This is an easy install, an hour or two tops. Spend the money on additional tools instead of paying a shop.

YAY Newbie! Welcome...(didnt see your post in the newbie section) anyway, here is a great site for you to "test" some Axel back sounds: http://v6mustangperformance.com/prod...p-compilation/
Most of them still work and it covers almost all the Axel backs that are out there.
Also a very knowledgeable member has created the perfect thread for you. Go through it, learn a bit. the 3.7 is not one of your typical engines to modify

Best exhaust mod is to put in a V8 j/k. I went with the Corsa for my V8 because I didn't want that 2500rpm drone. Best thing is to get feedback is what you are doing - get actual feedback from current owners.

Pipe Bombs are loud and sound good. The reason people don't like them is because they are loud inside the car.

Muffler deletes are nice, can get done at any shop. I put in glasspacks and am going to do an h midpipe next. Depends what sound you like. My current setup sounds like old performance 6's, no drone either.

Pretty sure there's a guy selling a used roush setup in the classifieds right now. I think he wanted $350 shipped

I will say, i have to agree with the Corsa, but thank God i was able to get mine used haha. When i was younger i wanted a car that was loud 24/7, but now its nice to be able to actually talk to the person i'm in the car with.

The Corsas really are something special, almost like an on/off switch. When you're cruising the car is almost silent (and i have headers with no cats), but even the slightest touch of the throttle and it roars to life.

I'm doing exhaust next on mine i think. my pick is the borla s-types. you'd probably like them. they're loud but not too loud. the borla atak are a bit louder though. check youtube for sounds.

is changing them yourself that much of a pain? I'll probably have my brother help me do it, as I'd rather do it myself instead of paying a shop to install them.... hmm. I have ramps, so that should be good enough right?

I was going to suggest that if she is thinking of installing the mufflers with a friend that she should consider ramps as the easiest and fastest way to raise the car 6" to 8". I use a relatively shallow set on top of short pieces of 2" x 12''s to get that extra couple of inches.

very nice. I've got ramps that look like that height. I used them on the front of the car to change the oil a month ago... so close to hitting the bottom of the bumper but it just misses it lol

Actually I had plasti-dipped the entire thing originally. Then one day I decided to expose the pony and stripes. By chance I removed the plasti-dip from around the pony first then decided to leave it like that for a while.
Actually I plan on removing it all and replacing the shiny panel with a new CDC deck lid panel.

If I was going to do just a flat panel I would go with the RTR deck lid panel. Something about that CDC one looks cheap. I think what you have in the pictures looks better than that

Ya... I have mixed feelings. I know many owners are going with the RTR.
Here are my thoughts...
The shiny panel is a dust magnet.
The CDC matches my license plate surround.
The RTR requires cutting a 5" hole.
If I had a black car I would do the shiny one.
I can always go back, if I ever wanted to.

Since you live in California, you have to use Shorty Headers, have CATS and see what Axlebacks are legal.

The Roush exhaust is really loud, but sounds really clean and at higher RPM it gives it that V8 sound. I had a Magnaflow kit on my 2006 that sounded nice as well, but I still like the Roush. It doesnt sound scratchy or ricey at all, even the idle rumble sounds nice. You are looking about $500 for the exhaust and then another $300 for install.

$300 for install of Roush AB?! Lol

I paid $80 to the dealer for my install, it's a basic bolt on part. With good tools it's maybe a 30 min job. I only did the dealer because if they sell and install the Roush parts, my dealer covers it under the factory bumper to bumper warranty.

You can do it yourself In About an hour in your driveway with basic tools and ramps.

The OP has a vert (i think). I think she should go with Magnaflow 'Streets'. Nice and low sound without being too loud. Just my opinion
