More aggresive sound

Hi everyone
Im new here in the forum, i just check all the forum but i didnt find answer to my question, i recently bought a 2008 Mustang V6 Manual, and i would like to improve the exhaust sound and i want to know if this intake air filter is worth or if you can recommend me another one, also i would like to change the stock muffler by an flowmaster, and do i need to buy a bama tunes for better performance or if someone has one, they can just tune my car?
Thank you for your answers!

No offense but you didn't look very hard then considering this is the most commonly asked question. Skip the eBay garbage and check www.americanmuscle.com if you want to get a real cold air intake, it won't add hardly any power by itself. Get a "tune required" Cai from American muscle and get a tuner with it and you'll make more power. Also look up GT Takeoffs. Best exhaust sound you can get for the money in my opinion

Thank you for you answer!!, there is any difference between shapes of air filter?, more bigger is better?, dry or oil filter?

I don't think the CAI is worth the money for use on a stock engine. pull off the rubber intake snorkel on your stock airbox and drill some big holes on the front to let more air in. I did get a tuner, and it does add a little zip to my auto V6. Not sure if it was $400 worth of zip, but......

Nope, they "marry" it to your car and it will only work on one car.


BAMA will put 2 tunes on it when you buy it, I got a 87 octane street tune and a 91 octane race tune. The 91 tune was a smidge faster, but I went back to the 87 street tune to save $$ on the premium gas.




I don't think the tuner adds a much HP ( maybe 10?) on a stock engine, but it does change the auto shift points and firmness to give a seat of the pants boost in acceleration.


On you manual I think you may be disappointed with the gain from the tuner


I bought mine from American Muscle when it was on sale and think it was like $365.00

The GT takeoff muffler sound good, try to find one.

so on a 2010 v6 i can get a 2010 GT muffler from the RH side and swap it in?

Ive read a few conflicting things on this so i wasnt sure.

most people that swap in usually go the dual exhaust conversion route

Size of air filter doesn't really matter your engine already flows plenty of air which is why an intake alone won't add any power. The tune is what adds power

Yes get a set of GT Takeoffs and they bolt right in to where your mufflers go

The best/most aggressive sounding 4.0 that I've ever heard was a h-pipe setup, shorty headers, SLP Loudmouth 1s, & no cats.
Gives more of high pitched racing car growl than the GT roar, & honestly it's the only V6 I've heard that doesn't really sound like a V6.
However the setup, cost, & loss of back pressure without coutermeasures makes it impractical for most people.


As for a filter, like others have said go with AM or Ford Racing for your best options.
Auction sites & third party sales reps don't have the backing that sellers posses.

Filter, waste of money. Tune, too expensive for what you get. Look up the guy w the 4.6 and Bama on here. Zero 1/4 mi gain. If there was a way to use resonator and have the exhaust turn down right there and use no muffler it'd be pretty loud.

find used GT takeoff (stock) mufflers.




Yes, you will have to but the used set, and use just the RH. Still should be cheaper than a new aftermarket single muffler. Don't bother with dual exhaust, complete waste of money on a near stock engine. Will bolt right up
