    i know that you guys totally hate answering these questions but i just have to ask. i have a 99 mustang V6 and its about time for me to put my dual exhuast on. i recently cracked my factory exhuast so now i gotta get the whole thing done so might as well go dual. i only have one question...what are the best sounding mufflers for my car?? i already know everything else i want i just wanna know what the best sound is. i refuse to get MAC, my cousin had it and it sucked...and my other choice is just taking my boyfriend Vortex mufflers from his old V8 exhaust...but really? what the hell would that sound like?? please help me out...i dont wanna drive around with my brother (who owns a honda) to have a better sounding exhaust than me!! thanks

    From a biased point of view, I'd say Flowmasters. I love hearing that rumble when i start it in the morning and it echos in my garage. It's like it's talking to me... :D

    yes my friend has flows on his 6 banger and it sounds pretty nice considering the lack of 2 cylinders. im not sure what his exact exhaust set-up is (x-pipe, headers, etc..) but i will ask him when i see him and hollar back :spot:

    My opinion: it sounds like crap unless you have a CAI installed to let it breathe. The difference is very noticeable.

    indeed, not to mention that exhaust site is missing the best sounding exhaust, the mac dualies! my only problem with the flows is that they have that popping sound! its good to have popcorn if your going to a movie but not while driving! the macs sound just as good, and no popping!

    I think the decceleration popping noise is a good noise. I personally love my Dynomax CDC setup. I get a nice rumble from them, and they wake up pretty good under load. Gotta love that gurgle! Can't wait to replace the rest of the exhaust system when it is time!

    We have a couple of 03stangs. An LX and a GT, they both have flowmasters(2 chamber) installed with the stock exhaust systems, they both sound good.

    If it is just the catback, yes you will need an Hpipe to hook to you headers. You cannot use anything but a V6 designed midpipe.

    MAC is not crap. Where and what type of exhaust have you heard. Here is a clip of mine with High Flow Hpipe and Catback both MAC and they are awesome. Read the post that goes along with the thread and you will see who one the db rating from all the v8's!

    nice 'travis', sounds almost exactly like my baby, but i gots stock cats... and 2.25 inches throughout, but it still emits a similar sound.
    also, i didnt like 'darrens' at all, the idle... i guess he has some kind of computer chip thing that is making it fire like that, but yeah darrens sounds like an older (MUCH older) V8 would sound at idle... not a fan, MAC all the way!

    sounds really good!! i actually like it. how much did that cost you?? the whole other thing is that i cracked my stock exhaust right behind my cats so i cant put a bolt-on on because i will still have that crack. is there anyway i can have a MAC exhaust welded onto my car??? sorry for all the questions, i just really have no idea

    Yes, darrens car at idle sound wierd, but that is from the CAM that he put in. It is not a chip thing but a better and different cam that he is running.
