I am contemplating an exhaust change on my 98 after getting underneath and witnessing Ford's attempt to please the man with 6 converters.My question is what "type" chambered,straight through,(as opposed to brand) exhaust should I be looking at if I DON'T want a huge increase in sound?I have already come to the conclusion after a LOT of reading that I am going with a catted H rather than X pipe I do not like raspy sound they make regardless of flow.Granted,I have only heard off road X pipes,but I think after all my reseach I have decided that converter have a lot to do with sound quality and levels. I prefer a deeper rumble at idle and would like as little increase as possible in sound every other time.I have admitted to myself that old age and parenthood have caught up with me and whenever I'm caught in traffic next to any type of LOUD exhaust it irritates me,and I couldn't imagine having it follow me around all the time.Would a 3 chamber Flowmaster or a straight Dynomax type of design be better off to keep my levels low?Do they all REALLY sound that much different depending on whether or not they are behind cats or not??Thanx for the read fellas and sorry or the novel!
