I have a question on stock vs. offroad H pipe sounds. I have heard a few video clips of a Stang with a Mac catback BEFORE the O/R h pipe was installed and AFTER the O/R h pipe was installed. It sounded to me like the O/R was much louder, BUT, only becasue it got more of a HOLLOW sound:sosad: . Sounded much LESS deep and the video was recorded at the same spot both times. Does this mean an O/R h pipe will take away that deep sound that an h pipe with cats have:?: Keep in mind it was a Mac catback and am talking about baffled muffler exhaust systems of that kind.

If anyone has any experience or knows what i'm talking about, PLEASE help me out as I am deciding on what mid pipe to buy for my Mac Catback on my 97GT. I'm a newbie at this site, so input would help. Thanks:winks

An O/R x-pipe would be better, but if you insist on the h-pipe then get an O/R. They may not of the really really really really deep note that gets on most peoples nerves that the stock h-pipe has but they do have a good sound. Although, h-pipe sound seems to be more for the 5.0 and the x-pipe seems to be more for the 4.6. Although as long as its an O/R pipe it will sound way better than stock.

??? Does anyone here know anything about exhausts?
What exactly are you wanting to know? If you just wanna know if you're gonna lose some of that deep sound the stock h-pipe has then the answer is yes. If you want more power out of the mid pipe go with an x-pipe, if you want your x-pipe to have more of that deep sound along with the x-pipe sound then get a catted x-pipe. I mean you arent asking the right question for the answer i think you are wanting apparently. If you like the stock h-pipe sound then keep the stock h-pipe. If all you are after is the sound, then stick with what you know.
