    I just purchased a this car it is my first 4.6.
    I've had 5.0's and 5.4sc's in the past.
    But I need to know what the best exhaust set up would be for the 4.6 4v.

    I like the sound of an H pipe, so I went with that...both an X or H will make good power. But stick with the Long Tubes...they are a PITA to install though-

    It depends, are you willing to deal with a harder install and a much harder tranny or clutch swap in the future for a few more ponies?

    Bassani Mid-Lengths, Bassani o/r X-pipe, Bassani Street Competition Catback would be the ultimate in power gains and sound IMO. God it would sound b@dass.... so damn beautiful [​IMG]

    If you have emissions testing in your area, you'll have to get shorties. Long tubes require the removal of the pre-cats so they are not legal.

    If you have the option, go for long tubes from jethot. They are spendy but worth every penny. The long tubes help low-end and the coating will last a long time, which is a plus because no one likes changing headers on a 4.6L.
