    Has anyone ever just taken off their muffler all together?

    I brought my car in for service earlier this week and a kid that works there walks up to me and says that I should take the muffler off. He said they dynod a V6 without any muffler and it was a 10HP gain. Any truth to this?

    Now, I honestly can say that I would never do this because I'm assuming it would sound like crap, but I was just curious is anyone has experimented with it.

    the car sounds nice without a muffler. just dont get pulled over.

    the 10hp gain is probably close because people have claimed that with an aftermarket exhaust.

    nice job! I really like the sound of the pypes brand. I didn't know anything about Pypes when I had my flowmaster duals installed or I might have went with them.

    Exhausts

    Hey guys,
    I was wondering how much performance there would be gained from a cat back exhaust with x-pipe vs just a single axle back given the same brands???

    Thanks

    Hi blackstang14,

    There is virtually no difference in performance, but there is a difference in sound.

    Duals sound better.

    Since you will be driving your stang for years, go with what makes YOU happy.

    I chose the duals for looks and sound.

    :nice:

    I'm happy

    SOHC

    finally got a sound clip of the MAC. Hell its not even on the original car i bought it for lol.

    sounds way better in person. the little crappy mic on my digicam didnt do it justice. its much deeper in real life.

    Haven't been around here in awhile, but I guess I'll throw mine up here :rolleyes:

    Bassani X Pipe replaced the original Y, dual pipes down to dual GT Mufflers.

    Sound clip is kinda raspy and distorted, but nonetheless,

    Dual GT Exhaust Rev

    GT Takeoffs are like what, $40-60 on eBay? X-Pipe was like $20 and the labor was $175 at a random muffler shop.
