Shorty headers, off road X, and muffler of choice dumped before rear axle. Go to youtube and streetfire and listen to a bunch of clips. This is a matter of opinion and nobody can really say what you are going to like except you.

So does it have the stock H with cats or an off road one without? If you already have a decent H then I wouldn't spend the cash on a different one. Keep in mind the midpipe is responsible for a lot of the sound so if you like the deep, muscle car sound then stick with the H. I've heard a lot of clips of guys running MAC mufflers dumped and I like them a lot better than Chokemasters. Also BBK make some decent inexpensive shorty headers.

The best sounding exhaust that i have heard is Mac LT's, Mac prochamber, and Flowmaster American Thunder Catback. I had this on one of my old Mustangs and I was ALWAYS getting compliments on the sound.

if you just want it to sound wicked and pretty loud, i'd go with an h-pipe and glasspack mufflers with dumps. that should set off some car alarms

If you want all out loud and you already have an o/r midpipe go with slp loudmouth 1's. I have a 95 cobra and I'm getting the slp's installed tomorrow. I have stock manifolds and an o/r h. I can post a soundclip soon for you if you want. Just send me a pm

Glasspacks will definitly give you a loud, mean sound...it will also turn a lot of heads

I always like the sound of flowmasters and an off road pipe.Honestly go to youtube.com and type in different exhaust and you can hear maybe what your looking for.Hope it helps

I think thats by far the loudest exhaust out there. It's basically a bullet race muffler. Speaking of which if you would rather save money dynomax has their race bullets for like 40 bucks a piece.

yea im not sure if its the stock h pipe or not but it has 4 small new cats on it that hush the sound way too much. if i go catless could i smog it legally or should i just get two new cats that are a little bigger.
