Sound is something your are going to have research for yourself...x pipe, h pipe and local custom pipe all have different sounds. Your best bet is search the MM forums, YouTube and also Streetfire. then go from thereok so theres alot more into this exhaust thing than i thought. im mainly going for sound since im not going to be racing or anything. Does it effect sound depending on which one i pick or do they do all the testing for power?
All depends on what you want as an end result. If your stretched for money, your better off getting a used h pipe or x pipe depending on your preference. Just please do not put two individual 3" pipes on your car...modular engines do not respond well to this setup.So what if i get custom 3 INch exhaust on my 2000 Gt ? what would i have to do
Well if you have the talent to blend two pipes together, go for it...i'm rather weary of playing around with the x pipe cause if you dont tune it right its going to flow right and its also gonna sound like crap.well i have been you tubing and researching alot. the one i like the best is the bassani exhaust systems. but the most i have found they have purchased the bassani x pipes so i was wondering if it really mattered to buy it or custom make it.
Ok so this part is an opinion...i hope some with more knowledge chime in....I heard they dont, but i heard if you tune the car once you get 3 inch piping it fixing the problem is that true?
Personally i think all ford v-6's sound like crap regardless of exhaust...but its a personal opinion...one of those to each their own kind of things. Just spend the $ to get a pipe you like then put it in yourself, its rather easy.well i wouldnt do it myself. i have a v6 mustang right now and i had them make a custom h pipe for my flowmaster mufflers. probably one of the best sounding v6s ive heard. so i mean is it really gonna be that much louder/better sound to buy the x pipe and not custom make it.
yes there is a big difference... the sound and performance will be different.. and it will be way more expensive... and if you plan on working on your car a lot i would just tell them to put turn downs on your mufflers... it makes it very easy to work with your exhaust when you have to take it down.Is there a difference to buying say a bassani x pipe or just have the exhaust shop weld a custom one on. And also is there a difference in just letting them weld on the mufflers or buying the whole cat back and having them put it on. thanks.
