4.6 mandrel straight pipes

1996 4.6 v8 with 2.5 in mandrel bent straightpipes. Vehicle has 205k mileage odo so ignore the exhaust smoke, bad valve seals on my high mileage non-pi. Still drives nice and sounds great. Unbelievable ive owned her since 1999 with 74k on odo. Its always been a special car to somebody. I remember even as i bought the car one night at a lincoln dealer, someone had already put on a flowmaster axle-back. Fast-fwd 12 years and back on the road again after fixing blown plug threads in # 5 cyl. will post vid of exhaust again once teksid build is done....

Since I never embedded the videos...

Interior sound clip of the old combo, recorded with a pair of my MKH 20 microphones.

Exterior sound clip at the dyno last summer (old combo), recorded with the crappy onboard mono camera mic.

Because signatures change, the old combo is:
PI cams, PI intake, Mandrel Bent 2 1/2" Duals with mid mounted magnaflow X pipe, 2 rear mounted Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers, 04 GT air intake and MAF

Your using the dynomax 17379 catback? I was wondering how much louder over stock it was. I might have to buy it.

It's not much louder than stock. It's more noticeable because of the heads.

I no longer have by bird, so this is not my car, This is somebodys car for sale that I went to go look at. All stock just flowmaster 10's. Figure I post that way people have an idea on how they sound on a Tbird. When I drove the car the car didn't drone at all around the city, on the highway it was barely noticeable. (11:30)
