    We've been hearing people say that for years now, and it gets a little old.

    What about people saying, "It looks better than that stock POS that was sticking out"?
    In person, I had someone tell me it looked normal, and they wouldn't have noticed a lack of cutouts if I hadn't pointed at a GT.

    Besides, by the time you have the system mounted, and get a Bumper shipped, you'll have spent enough for side-exhaust. And side exhaust looks better, it isn't done a lot, and you can hear it better.

    V6 Mustangs already have a lot of one, and not too much of the other.

    Call me crazy, but I'd take a Supercharged Crown Vic with steel wheels and poverty hubcaps, over a Civic with a bodykit and rims.

    expect to pay anywhere from $350-500 depending on what you decide to get and how much labor a shop charges

    ATI's Procharger 11lb Kit with Intercooler, comes with everything you pretty much need....Thats all you need for a SC. There is no Turbo kits for our sixes unless you can get someone to fab it for you. SO the Supercharger is your easiest route.

    Always loved the side exhuast look. I would have put that on my v6 but i traded it in instead.

    Look, this is the sad and simple truth with mustang exhausts. The less flow you have, the better it is going to sound. So honestly, for the best sound, i would get 1 muffler with 2.25" piping with 2 pipes comming out of that one muffler. After you add more mufflers or bigger pipe, the sound just gets worse. And thats a fact. hence, why people with basani exhausts always have the best sounding ones...its because they only got 1 muffler. Personally, i like my MAC dual exhaust and ive always liked the sound of it. Not too loud, not too raspy, and a nice down low tone. But some people will swear by other exhausts. And i would never get 2 pipes with 1 muffler :bang: That is just dumb to me. But, if all you care about is sound, i would go with basani.

    p.s. i have never heard a good sounding side exhaust on a v6 mustang...i like the rousch side exhaust sounds like crap. But thats just me.

    How much do the superchargers cost and are there different brands that are better than the other?

    3 grand give or take.....You gould get a Vortec, but there is no intercooler and you have to punch a hole in your oil pan for it, not that thats a big deal. They tend to be a bit cheaper too I beleive because they don't come as a kit with the IC. I personally think the Procharger is the best you could get.
