    What the 'F' is up with these muffler prices?!

    6 years ago they were all under $100 - $125-

    Has there been some Lawsuit/judgement that has these prices up so high on a such a simple sheet metal enclosure?

    These things aren't being made for Commercial Aircraft !

    i think the prices are high because of how new the car is and there arent too many out there etc..

    oh yeah i cant wait to hear them. i have the Mac "H" pipe and exhaust, CAI on my 89. and they sound great

    I didn't like that the Mac had a 4" tip. I was worried that it would look too much like a ricer.

    Well the tip is big....but i think it looks great...gives the v6 some added look to it...as far as sounding like i ricer i think not!!!....this mac has a growl!...today i installed the k&n cai kit and it was a easy install...now with the mac & k&n cai it really kinda levels each other out...the sound before the k&n cai was almost to loud and drowning at certain rpms....i drove 60 miles today with the whole package installed and it really sounded deep & throty...very happy with the set-up...http://forums.stangnet.com/images/icons/icon14.gif

    I wasn't trying to insult. It's just that a 4" tip seemed like it was bigger than it needed to be.

    I did a battery disconnect on both installs..the diff was the cai...before when i installed the axle back it was loud and sounding really good for a 6...what suprised me was the harmony i got when the cai was installed...a much sweeter deep sound...i was suprised by this 6....i honestly dont think you could get much better sound w doing a ex/cai upgrade..it sounds so deep ...i would rec for anyone w/ a 6 to do it and it was a fairly cheep upgrade..figure 20hp..out

    MAC sounds good, but after the experience I had with them on my 95, I'll never buy them again.


    Beware of rust...ate through my set up a little over a year.

    Ive been really worried about MAC quality as well but am not much anymore. Theyve come a long long way from the horror stories of the early-mid 90s. Some of the stuff they made for the 5.0 leaves me shaking in my boots and sleeping uneasy at night, but I think they're past that now.

    As far as the Mac product i think it will be fine..everyone likes there brands ect....this axle back is stainless steel and seems very well put together...the welded joints look high quality...i guess time will tell and i can easily swap in a jba or magna-flow ect....thanks for all the input from you guys on my/our mods i enjoy the talk.... :banana:

    I had a single MAC axle-back in my hands and couldn't put it on my car. The 4 inch pipe (with another smaller pipe inside it!) just didn't do it for me. I kept thinking of Folgers crystals... Ended up selling it on ebay for a small loss.
