    I personally got exhaust first... But when I switched out my crappy yellowed, fogged stockers w/silverstars headlights/fogs for smoked heads/fogs, they made a world of a difference for night driving..

    Exhaust, the average person won't notice your headlights but they will hear it. >:D

    It will sound different yes, but the general "tone" is the same. It will probably sound deeper. :dunno:

    a 5.0 pushrod motor will sound a significant amount different than the 4.6 modular

    thats one reason why i want to get a 5.0 one day. :khobra:

    I think flows on a 5.0 sounds "pretty" close to a 4.6. :dunno:

    wanna know why?















    because once you start doing performance mods and dont see the gains you would expect, you will keep doing more and more til you dont find any money for new headlights :thumb:
