    flows sound good with cats...but without cats flowmasters sound like straight pipes

    i like more of the exotic type sound rather than straight pipe sound...

    just my opnion..

    Yeah, I do not know what exotic means, sorry!! I am trying, promise.

    Someone said that IMCO's are too raspy. I am unsure on what that means, but I am thinking of going back to 40 series FMs. Would buying an X or an H pipe change up my sound that much? Would it make up for the price of it? Which one, too? Thanks again!!

    I have some custom made tips for mine coming before each rear wheel, so dumps are out. I like seeing the tips anyhow.

    If I do go back to FM, I should buy 2 right? I think that would sound meaner that one with dual outlets, I think. Thanks!!

    Would I want an X or an H pipe, too?

    I had ford shorty headers with a off road h and slp catback, and with my cam it sounded like a 500hp 10 sec car hahah!

    it wwas nasty sounding and so loud, out of all the mustangs around I had 1 of the loudest O0. but then i had to pass emissions and now i have a bassani x pipe with cats, its so quiet now i want to cry lol but it keeps away the attention from the cops now and its loud as f**k when i get on it :banana: 1 other thing now is i dont have to turn my stereo to 24 volume to hear it now hahaha now i can hear my radio and i dont get headaches or can hear when i go under a bridge hahah

    That is what I am talking about!! My exhaust guy is my inspection guy, luckily. I just have never really heard of SLP before! I already lost the hearing in my left ear from my ATV accident. I would love to loose it in the other ear because of my car!!! Thanks a lot!

    And, would that cam work for mine? I want a cam for my car just for the sound!! I have never raced my car and never plan to. It is strictly a daily driver. Thanks a bunch!!!

    Yeah man. SLP is nuts, here is a short vid of the Loud Mouth 1s on the stock midpipe (6 catyltic converters :eek:utofcloset:) while barely giving it any gas and it is still loud. Not deafening loud, but loud.

    i have a bbk offroad h pipe with a flowmaster cat back. everywhere i go someone is always asking me what kind of exhaust i have. people that dont care anything for exhaust are always telling me that my car sounds good. we have a ton of mustangs here and everyone here will tell you that my car sounds the best. i promise you that you will not regret it.
    I got 2 friends that put imco on there cars. they sound like crap. one has some type of x pipe, and the other just has his converters removed.
    Slp sounds like a camaro. They didnt even make anything for a Mustang until the Camaro was discontinued. They dont have my vote.

    hmmm....when u take out 6 cats...replace it with an O/R x..(which is striahgt pipes)...and run it through chambered flows...how does that not sound like straight pipes? :dunno:

    theres nothing to change the tone or muffle the sound

    right now i have a bassani cb, catted bbk h pipe and flowtech shorty headers. It sounds good. I am thinking of getting an o/r prochamber or h pipe and also get some nice ceramic coated headers in the future

    an O/R x is definately raspier with original flows, but those mufflers kind of hold it back some. I know you work on cars for a living or are at least planning to and I'm surprised you think it sounds straight piped. :dunno: I'm sure you've heard an O/R with straight through mufflers right? Now those things sound straight piped. Maybe different people just hear different things. :dunno:
