I'm trying to decide if I should get a tune or a flowmaster 44 for my v6 2000 mustang. Which one would be more fun and worth the money since they are about the same price?

Get both! Lol. I guess the tuner would be more beneficial to you since if you get the right one they can tune it to your exact mods over and over again. The only thing you're really gona get out of the exhaust is badass sound. Don't get me wrong tho, badass sound is still quite important IMO

Would the tune make my stang quite a bit faster? And I just love that sound. Would the single flowmaster muffler still sound good on a single exhaust? And If you have any recommendations, which tune should I get?

Yes the tune will give a noticeable difference because it will squeeze every ounce of horsepower out of your mods, aggressively change your shift points if you've got an automatic,increase throttle response...etc. Now, if you are planning on doing anything to your exhaust, I highly recommend either going true dual or atleast dual exhaust conversion. You just aren't going to get a good sound out of single exhaust, IMO anyways. I've never heard a good single exhaust setup on a mustang but hey, maybe there's one out there who knows.

Oh and I'd reccomend anything with a bama tune, best customer service out there

i've heard some very nice single exhaust setups...they just aren't as loud as a dual setup. if it came down to not being able to afford a dual setup i can see running a single exhaust (i've done it before)...it just means come dual time you have a muffler already set to go for the new setup

I just would like to simply clamp on a single muffler because one my car is a v6 and I hope to upgrade to a gt soon enough and don't want to put a ton of money into a car I will be selling I the next year or so. And 2 I just want to have some good sound while I have it. By good exhaust setup, are you meaning I would have to get other parts besides the muffler, or simply a good quality muffler.

Exhaust sound is all about personal opinion, so if you are really thinking about any exhaust, YouTube the setups you are thinking, there's millions out there

i wouldn't clamp it...the oem muffler is im thinking about 24" long and most aftermarkets are only 15-18" long. so you'd be clamping three spots along with a piece of pipe to make up the empty space. whereas most muffler shops (at least in my area) charge $25 to swap a muffler with an aftermarket and that includes welding it in and adding in some pipe to fill the gap.

if your wanting to get a good sound out of your car with a single setup for cheap go to Advance Auto and buy a Thrush Welded Muffler for $39...it's a dual chamber muffler built pretty much the same as a 40 series. just a tip

So I can get the same sound out of the thrush muffler for the most part as a flowmaster? And is the in and out size 2.5 or 2.25?

yeah pretty much....thrushs are actually a bit deeper sound wise whereas flows are a tiny bit louder. not enough you'd really notice unless you've tried both mufflers out for yourself (which i've done lol) and it's 2.25" on the stock pipe

I got a single thrush muffler if u want it. It was on my car when I got it, and I upgraded to flow 40's and to me there's a big difference.
