    V6 Talk
    So I wanted to make my v6 sound louder, and I've heard of people cutting right before the muffler (muffler delete) and just putting a piece of straight pipe on or just curving it to point down. I was wondering if this is a good idea. I know it will not pass inspection, I know it will be...
  3. Long or shorty headers.

    I'm partially ahead of schedule on my mod on my mustang. I just wanted to know which would be better for a better acceleration and louder pipes. Would long or shorty headers be the way to go? I wanna go shorty but I heard the most sound comes from long tubes. Help!!

    V6 Tech
    My mustang seems to enjoy surging to 2 grand when idling and will not "reset" to normal idling RPMs. I believe it may have had something to do with my passenger side headers breaking off of the rest of the exhaust just above the connection to the pipes. It was obvious shotty homemade exhaust...
