    A "badass" sounding exhaust all depends on the listener. Some people like the sound of a chambered muffler (Flows) and some like the sound of straight thru mufflers such as magnaflows. The chambered mufflers will be louder at idle. I have the magnaflows. In cabin resonance in minimal. At WOT the car sounds wicked. I can cruise on the freeway and still hold a converstaion with a passenger. I rode in my buddies 00GT, who has spintechs. They sound great but have a lot of resonance at cruising speed.

    Here is a muffler comparo :

    Results based on 5.0 Mustang Magazine December 2002 issue (page 55). Test car is a '90 Coupe with 370 HP and 11 second potential. A number of 66 pulls were made to compile this information. Where does your muffler stack up?

    The results in HP order:

    1.Flowtech Warlock (open) 374.2 hp/ 333.1 tq
    2.Bassani Real Street 373.7 hp/ 333.8 tq
    3.Hooker Maxflow 373.5 hp/ 333 tq
    4.Borla XS 373.3 hp/ 332.6 tq
    5.Magnaflow 372.8 / 332.5 tq
    6.MAC 372.3 hp / 331.5 tq
    7.Flowtech Afterburner 372.3 hp/ 330.1 tq
    8.Hooker Aerochamber 372.1 hp/ 330.4 tq
    9.Bassani 372 hp/ 333.5 tq
    10.Spintech 371.6 hp/ 332.2 tq
    11.Edelbrock Performer RPM 370.9 hp / 331.3 tq
    12.Borla XR1 370 hp/ 334 tq
    13.Flowtech Terminator 369.5 hp / 331.3 tq
    14.Dynomax Ultra Flo 369.4 / 333.2 tq
    15.Flowmaster 369.4 hp / 331.8 tq
    16.Flowtech Warlock 366.3 hp / 325.3 tq
    17.No muffs 365.2 hp / 330.1 tq

    NO question:


    Kook's Longtubes
    Dr. Gas offroad X
    Bassani Aftercat


    I've heard it in person. It sounds like a caged animal. Insane.

    yea magnaflow has a clean sounding exhuast.. the prochamber I tihnk has something to do with the loudness of the sound but I don't wanna ditch ti cuz I notice a pretty big difference in power.. I think it'll help when the blower goes on

    I'll agree with this one, it's my setup and I love the sound! It's just so unique from every other mustang but at the same time you can still tell what it is. Sounds even cooler with an f-cam hehe.
