    So its drizzling out and its boring inside. I decided to make a sound clip of the ole stang.


    Does she sound healthy to you???

    http://media.putfile.com/mustang-9 and yep i granny shift. My clutch is shitty

    That blat @ 1:45 actually sounds good outside. On the inside its sounds shitty.

    You know the setup already. Not Flowmasters. Sounds 100 x times better than flows in my book.. why?/ b/c its dumped :angel:

    O/R H and Mac FLowpath Mufflers dumped @ the rear axle.


    Coming next month after emission i will swap on the o/r prochamber after i take the catted H off. :thumb: but this o/r h with dumped macs is something serious. I just dont have the balls/horsepower/tq to back up my exhaust sound.

    And what have we learned today? dump your exhaust.. who cares if it looks empty from behind with no tips.

    sounds like you have a leaky head gasket and youre prolly gonna need your engine overhauled...

    j/k sounds pretty good

    *knock on freaking wood* LOL How does a leaky head gasket sound? i overheated my car not to long ago and it still gets too hot now so i have to blast the heat in 90 degree weather to cool down the car :D i might need a new radiator though.

    i have (not 2 hrs) and its not loud :dunno: maybe if it was dumped @ the ground, but being its dumped @ the axle. Its not deep as inside :'( as i would like.

    Heh, if you dont believe me. Listen to like 20 seconds of this clip. Its not loud inside at all: http://media.putfile.com/my-mustang-18

    I just went with electric exhaust cutout's right after the flange coming off the headers. I can run my flowmasters when i want or dump it to nearly open headers when i want. Best of both worlds. Just my recommendation. Not a very good pic but u get the idea

    electric cutouts are big $$$$, and i have heard the cheaper ones are prone to leaking..i would rather just get the manual cutouts witht the wing nuts.

    You get what you pay for. Mine were 500 but lifetime warranty and perfect seal every time. Its a flip of the switch from inside the car and I love em. I can pass a riced out neon thats been screwing with me open header style and then have it shut down by the time I pass grandma taking her grandchildren to church. It just comes down to what you feel is expensive. Modding cars isnt cheap so I feel like they fit right in and are by far the funnest mod yet.

    So if you have the cutouts open does it just cut the sound off the mufflers could make? I mean if i had flowmasters and ran with the cut outs open.... would i get any flowmaster tone or would it just be a RAW tone because the exhaust flow is cut @ the cutout?

    it would be like running open headers, which you pretty much are. when the cutout is open, it is like you dont have a midpipe or catback on teh car anymore..

    I wanna do that so bad. I might buy some real pro dumps b/c i dont want to weld anything where i cant re-install my tips/tails if ever needed again. That way i can install the pro dumps or hook back up the non dumps just by unbolting/bolting.

    You have any clips of your sisters car?

    No I wish I did it sounded great. Not as loud as mine but it sounded good. She wreaked it last year and some kid has it around town here now he fixed it up.

    There still might be sound/flow coming out your exhaust but it is overwhelmed by the sound coming from the cut out part. Its nearly 100% open headers. They dont block the path to and through your mufflers just create an alternative route. Exhaust will take the path of least resistance therefor the majority will exit directly out the cut out instead of flowing through the h pipe, mufflers, and out your exhaust tips.
