In my opinion, the best exhaust system for a v6 is

Longtube headers, with divorced dual flowmaster 44 series mufflers and straight tailpipes out the back. 2.5" pipe front to back, with a 3.5" tip that has the honeycomb to just give that little extra bit of muscle-like sound. :yelpleased:

YouTube - ‪Mustang V6 flowmaster exhaust‬‏

Pacesetter long tubes, aftermarket high flow cats, pypes x-pipe, and flowmaster 40's knock-offs (made exactly the same on the inside)

Sounds great at idle nice rumble, the V6 shows at about 2800rpm's (thanks to the x-pipe) but after 3200rpm's it mellows out and has a wonderful tone if you get an h-pipe there is no rasp with the rest of the setup but it will not be a V8 sound, however a heck of a lot better than the usual V6

Why put on an X or H pipe?? They usually make it raspier.. and high flow cats will DEFINITELY make it raspy. Get better aftermarket cats, just not high flows. Divorced duals have a straight up mellow sound like v8's.. but it's just not as nice as a v8.

Still, v6's can come pretty close.. if you set it up right.

They are not super high flow cats like the pypes ones I had, these are a tad more restrictive, yes everyone knows cats make a big difference, but i would rather have better performance than sound (reason I still have x-pipe)

Order of rasp
X raspy
Divorced not hardly raspy
H none...

Been around the block long enough to know the difference.....

Last time I checked, X pipes hardly make a performance difference on a v6. I know they do on a v8 because a v8 is not an even firing engine. The v6 is. Hence not needing them for anything other then noise.

I don't mind H pipes, but I just think they're pointless on v6's. That is just my opinion, im not trying to put your opinion down or anything.

And you do have a point, I wasn't too specific on my post, some higher flow cats can be restrictive enough..

1-2 hp, Even on the V6 which is even fire scavenging helps

Oh and no disrespect taken, everyone has their own opinion

It means the pipes come straight from the headers or cats which ever direction you choose to go, back to the mufflers, there is no connection between the pipes at all, each side of the motor has it's own individual pipe all the way back

Either 40 or 44 will be fine, look on YouTube and decide what you like better, some say there is a difference but I can hardly hear any
