    Guys I'm getting ready to put an exhaust on the ole 5.0. Right now minds made up....I'm going with a Bassani X and Flowmaster American Thunder Catback. Now my Problem, Being that i have one loud car (98GT Flowmaster 44s...Mac H Pipe) should i keep this one quiet by getting a catted X Pipe? Ive never received complaints from anyone about my SN but sometimes having a Loud car is a prob. What would you do?

    Snakebit, I know your looking to get rid of the cobra but, if you were gonna keep it, would you make the "EL" loud as well?

    I went all legal on my exhaust because of this OBDII test, my cobra is legal and the L will be too. Im going with a catted high flow mid pipe and a cat back exhaust on the L. It will be loud, but NOT obnoxiously loud

    I got really tired of having loud cars, as well as all the unwanted attention they get from cops and idiot ricer streetracers. Now I do everything I can to quiet them down, and all my cars have cats. Plus, the power losses through high-flow cats are extremely minimal, and it's really nice to be able to hear my music and hold a conversation over the sound of the exhaust nowadays.

    Well I love it most of the time, but sometimes I get sick of it. Making a lot of short trips in a small amount of time, or 1 long trip makes it even worse. I currently have a catted h with the SLP LM1 catback. Once I get the IRS under my car, it will have an offroad H and an actual muffler behind it. Depending on how loud it is, I might weld some of the high flow cats my dad sells into the H.

    Personally if it's my car, I don't like it too loud inside where you can't hold a conversation, listen to the radio or too "boomy" while at speed. Outside or someone elses stang is a different story. I like it loud when you get on it and a nice solid low rumble at speed/idle.

    My preference in sound is for 5.0s to have an H pipe no cats and flowmaster catback and 4.6s with catted X pipe connected to a Bassani catback, but that's my preference in terms of what I like my stangs to sound like. Everyone's different. I also like Red96GT's idea of the modular (Bassani) mid pipe where you can easily change out the cats if you prefer.

    FWIW, I'm getting mine louder tomorrow - welding in SS Bassani streets:)
