Glass pack Weld or Bolt on Axle back system?

I want to change my exhaust soon. I want my mustang to be loud, very loud, my first GT and I want it to be loud and proud, I would like Glass pack since cherry bomb is making them like back in the day, I know its not a camaro which is usually the glass pack favorite but i want it to be unique. i don't see many mustangs around here with glass packs, all bolt on, all borla, just the same ol same ol. what id your guys opinion on this, personally id like to go with glass pack but i get mixed reviews on it. i am also gonna go with either black powdercoat tips or black chrome tips for the exhaust tips.

by the way, my car is less than a month old since ive purchased it,
2010 grabber blue mustang GT, V8 4.6L if you guys needed any of those specs to determine suggestions

A muffler delete is basically the same sound as the old school glass packs. The cheapest way to go would be to take it to a muffler shop, have them remove the mufflers, install straight pipe with 10" tips. Removing the cats will be a little louder, but it will sound like chit without a muffler.

JBA Mustang Off-Road X-Pipe (05-10 GT) 1775SX - Free Shipping! This or a similar Hpipe will do the trick.

No it won't. Cats are in the Midpipe.

If you really want loud and deep toned sound. Do a offroad H with a flowmaster 10 muffler. It will howl and sound deep. But it would be way too loud for me. I have a offroad H and a flowmaster super 44 muffler. If you just want as loud as possible. Run an offroad x to a straight pipe.

Your second post was misleading when you asked about cost. Your gonna spend at least 2 grand to have the best sounding car at a show.

I just asked was the cost was to see comparison, and no one has really replied from the side of glasspack, thank you for your answer though. Idk about 2g but I can't change to much in the car like I said I just bought it, so you can't mess with the cats otherwise it voids the warranty

If you are not gonna mess with the cats it will only get so loud. I would even bet your car with straight pipes and cats still on it would get beat in loudness by any cat less stang but maybe those running GT500 mufflers.

Doesn't sound like you can do what you want.

I put Kooks LTs,HF cats and Mac Boomtubes on my 3V and it was just as loud as my current 4V with ARH LTs,O/R X and Roush. You can keep the cats on your 3V if you want and it will still be obnoxious as hell.

It sounded just like this car.....

H pipe will give you a deeper sound, as opposed to an x pipe, that will be a bit louder, but also tends to rasp. I have the roush axlebacks now, and they are pretty loud for just a muffler. From what ive heard tho, they get a little raspy with and x pipe.

I hate hate hate glass packs on our cars.... even though i love straight through mufflers lol...i guess the size of the shell and matting can really change the sound. I love my borla stingers...you call them same ol same ol...but i rarely see another borla exhaust around. Just seems same ole due to being on a national forum

Same old same old is roush. Everybody and their brother buy roush. I agree with you. I've never met another 5.0 owner with borla in person before.

Same old same old is Roush and Borla. Every Tom,dick and Harry has one of the 2.....including myself. I bought mine when they were under $400 (in 2010) and not many people had them. BTW,they both sound great but they will be replaced with some GT500s shortly.

I've got the Magnaflow Comps and I really like it... I'd love to hear the Mac Prochamber with this set up.

There's probably a reason for that.....

I personally am not a fan of glasspacks, especially on mustangs, but at the end of the day, its your car, so you should get whatever you want! Just make sure you upload some sound clips after!

Glass packs sound the best on push rod motors.

Just dont like the tone of them on a mustang. Incredibly loud was never my first prioriy tho. I prefer something with a bit deeper tone under normal acceleration, but still sounds like a monster once you put your foot down.
