Does an ORX make your car unbarable to DD?

As the title says. I hear that the majority of HP gains form an exhaust setup will come from removing the cat. How loud is this going to be? I want something that sounds like it has been worked on, not like it has an exhaust leak.

It really depends on what mufflers you go with. The Roush axle back's sound pretty damn sweet!

^ it does depend on the axlebacks. But an off road X and roush will be very loud.

Kooks axlebacks and off road X is nice. Alittle quiet for my liking. Resonators do shit the car up a decent amount too.

I like the sound of the o/r H-pipe better. It's all preference though. The H-pipe usually gives it a little deeper tone and sounds less raspy. I run longtubes with an h pipe and GT500s and I love the sound.

I would say this is what I want then. I want a rumble for sure.

Basically, I want something that sounds a hair louder than stock while cruising, but when accelerating it would really open up and sound like a V8 should.

I used to dd my blue car with no cats, custom h pipe/over axle pipes and GT500 axlebacks. Loved it. Depending on the axleback, though, it can be a bit raunchy.

when i had my 08 i had a pypes off road x with pypes violators axlebacks, and it sounded like complete shit. But thats also because i was using the cheapest axlebacks i could find. Im an exhaust FANATIC, and went big this time with a Borla S-type catback. Ive been thinking about going with an off road x or h pipe, but it sounds phenominal as is, and dont want the tone to change at all. and in my opinion, if you go with an off road anything, just make sure you have a above average axleback setup, like roush (which like said above will be LOUD!). Also understand, the louder the exhaust gets A LOT of the time (not in all cases) you sacrifice loudness with tone. Again, this is just my ears talking, everyone like different exhaust sounds just like everyone likes different music.

So it sounds like it would be a good idea to get relatively tame ABs with a catless X/H pipe, correct?

That is a good thing though. Sure, you can have a super loud car at 2k rpms, but then is sounds like crap when you get on it. And that is when you want it to sound the best!

Yes. At cruising speed, it was a touch louder. Romp on it and LOUD!

honestly, after i installed Longtubes on the 08, it almost sounded like it quieted the car down. It was more or less just smoothening the flow of the exhaust out and just made it smoother sounded. Didnt sound louder at all, so i would suggest getting long tubes along with the O/R mid pipe for it to sound its best

Ooooh, for sure, if you want it to sound deep and good, go for the mac offroad prochamber to the stock headers. Its kinda more expensive than the other midpipes, but its like buying an expensive well tuned instrument over buying something like an instrument from a garage sale. ex: prochamber vs. a cheap aluminized offroad x pipe. I'm saving up for the prochamber as I have a 2010 and my only other choice would be a pypes h pipe. lol. My dad had one and that thing was so bad, it was actually pretty hard to install because of the pipes bad fitment.

now that you brought it up, i have NEVER seen or heard of anyone putting a pro chamber on the 5.0's. not sure why to be honest, but I havent even seen too many youtube clips with them either....anyone know why this is?

i had a Bassani X with 40 series flowmasters and turn downs on my 1998, 2.5" from the manifolds back. It was loud but not unbearable. Plus I have a nice stereo so can crank it up if I want. I will have a new set up when my engine goes in, ARH headers with 3" collectors and X with Flowmaster super 44s and dumps. Going 3" all the way, it will be loud. CHP is going to love me.

I used to have UPR off road x pipe combined with SLP LM1s... And dear god it was horrible loud. It was just raspy and sounded like a 90s chevy pick up with missing cats. I since swapped it for a UPR Catted X its much deeper now and still loud but not annoying loud. When I get long tubes i'm going with an OR Hpipe. This was on a 2004 GT

It seems to me that an H pipe would be the way to go for me. I doubt it would ever see a drag strip while it is my DD, so low/mid range torque would be best for a DD. Plus I would rather have the more of a rumble as opposed to a raspy sound.

Now one guy says the Prochamber is the way to go, and another says they are crap. Looking at a picture of them, they don't seem very well made... So what H pipe is the best?
