If you like the super 44’s you should check out the super 40’s. I run the Flowmaster super 40’s dumped with an h-pipe and would trade the sound for any other. The inch thicker case gives it a little deeper rumble. I get a kick out of some people when the ask what I have, and there reply “oh so you are running chokemasters”.

Mods = None. (well maybe just a few)

WillyG, Eventually I'll get an OR Hpipe with some longtubes but this will do. I know the 40s sound very similar to the 44s...my 44s have a very tinny sound and with the x-pipe its pretty raspy but I love it...."Chokemasters"...smh

Socal, I hear ya on that...although I got to tell ya I have yet to get one compliment on my exhaust from anyone not in my family (minus a few people from my work)...lol....If I encounter anyone who has the hillbilly response I'll just knod and go along with it

Jon...

That's pretty cool you picked up on the hillbilly accent. Totally how is sounded in my head as I was typing it, haha.

They are usually the same people who ask, "Five point oh, right?". And I always reply, "Nope, four point six. It replaced the five point oh about 5 years prior." And to curb their skepticism (ever notice how people make a funny face when you deliver that shocker?), I go "Yeah man, these are way better engines".

When this thing isnt my daily driver an O/R H pipe is going on it. I think it will help with the flowmaster sound...with my X-pipe now it is still a bit raspy even with the cats on it.

Mods that I regreted on my 2001 Mustang 4.6 4V;

Hooker long tube headers, X pipe with High flow cats; no mater what I did, there was as always and exhaust leak at the header slip fit collector and the pipes between the steering shaft leaked as well. X pipe hung too damn low. Highflow cats scraped and then disintegrated.

Nothing but headaches with the hooker long tubes and the final straw was the noise and inspection so I took off the long tubes and put in a set of JBA shortie headers and the factory 4 cat h pipe. Much better; no more exaust leaks and ground clearance issues, plus the resonannce noise went away.

Totoally regretted messing with long tubes. The fiasco with the exhaust made me research the hell out of pontenial mods before I throw them onto the car.

I'll update this thread again since I rebought some mods lately....

Just upgraded my short throw shifter. I have/had (still installed) an SR Short Throw Shifter with a Tri-Ax handle....I now have an MGW shifter on the way...I ordered the Race handle and Standard Handle.

I had Summit Racing Upper and Lower Control Arms (the generic SR/SVE/Ebay cheap-o set). The uppers came off months ago due to the bushings completely failing. I just took the lowers off and replaced them with J&M Street/Race Lowers. They have a solid bearing on the axle side, and a 3 piece poly bushing on the chassis side.

I have also replaced my mufflers...again...to quiet it down until my daughter (and next kid, who is due on Sept 3rd) gets a little older.

It's only money right.....

I hope some people learn from my mistakes....don't cheap out and buy the cheapest mod...save your money so you can do it right the first time. Trust me....look at the wasted funds/time I'm going through...

I went from 2.73 to 3.73's. That's a regret. If I had the money is go w 3.27's.


Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

Man I've almost pulled the trigger on the sve type control arms numerous times. I'm still needing a set but at this point I'm gonna rock the stockers until the stars align so I can get a good set. The price gap is crazy between "good" and "crap." You can get "crap" uppers and lowers for cheaper than a set of "good" lowers alone.

Just thought of a "mod" that I've done numerous time and would do again. I've removed the air silencer in the airbox and replaced the filter. Sometimes w a K&N and sometimes w a stock replacement. Same results each time I've also bought a couple of cai's. When i was young I thought it was money well spent. The last time I bought one I went w a cheap one because I realized I was doing it just for looks.

Resurrecting this thread...

I'm getting yet another set of mufflers installed but this time it will be permanent...M-80s welded in and the Super 44s are going bye-bye. I'll post a video of it in a new thread tonight. This has to be the 5th or 6th exhaust setup I have ran since buying my car No more switching mufflers for me...

I have also re-bought a CAI...I now have a JLT Ram Air and ditched the SR

I also bought the 78MM BBK Intake (bought it used so I won't lose to much here since I'll be selling my SVE setup)...took off the SVE 75MM tb/plenum. BBKs is a much nicer piece!

Jon, exhaust mods are never done. You think they are, and then a couple years later it's too loud for you. Or too quiet. Or you get bored. Or you hear another Mustang you like better. I've fallen victim to all of the above.

My newest mods that count for buying a second time is flywheel and midpipe. Old flywheel (Spec billet aluminum) failed, so that was out of necessity. More relevant to the discussion is the midpipe. Old BBK x pipe was too loud and I had Youtube envy of those with Mac Prochambers. So I got one of those. Happy for now, we'll see what the future brings lol.
