Ok, I'm debating on borla, bassani, or spintech. Yes, just those three please just give me opinions on those three as that's the ones that I'm partial to.

So what's the ups and downs of each?

This is all on my 97 mark viii.

Thanks guys

Well, I'm really debating as to weither I want to spend the money. I know the quality of borla, but the sound isn't quite what I want. I'd like something that sounds deeper. You know, more like a push rod engine. Which is very hard to do with a 4.6. And the magnaflow's sound good, but I like to be different.

I think I'm leaning more to the spintech's or the new cherry bomb's. Although they aren't the quality at least they have the more aggressive sound.

Unless I can figure out which muffler borla uses on their "stinger" exhaust kits. That muffler sounds really sexy on a 4.6.

Avoid the dynomax "ultraflow X" dual in and out, it has a crossover built in that will choke the system.

I like the Borla's too. They'd be my choice.

Well, I think I'm going to go with the cherry bomb's, just because they have the deepest most aggressive sound for the money. And they're cheap enough that if I decide to go with borla's after the new engine is done it won't really hurt my budget.

Which after listening to nearly 50 sound clips and watching video's I've decided that I really need to get the kooks headers and a prochamber to go with the rest of the exhaust. Most exhaust's on 4.6's sound entirely too raspy with an x-pipe or too weak without the rest of the package.

Yea, I’ve noticed that the x pipe cars do sound a little raspy for my taste. I def like the H pipe exhausts I’ve heard. It’s hard to compare different exhaust systems though because just about everyone’s exhaust is different.

listen

I'm buying the extreme's. Tell me what you think. Honestly. I just don't think I'll get the sound out of the borla's until the rest of the exhaust is built. And that's not going to be until the motor and trans are done. So...I'm going to give them a try.

And for those of you who don't know....cherry bomb makes mufflers now.

not bad, I'd be interested in listening to them after you install them on "your" car ;)

ok.

I'll post pics and let you know when they're on. And I'm sure I'll need help as I don't have a video recording device.

Why did you decide to not go with the ones from Lincoln Motorsport, or SuperCoupe Performance, since they are setup for the Mark VIII's already?

Just wondering as I'm researching exhaust for my LSC. :thumbsup:

.

Is it just me, or do the sound clips for the Cherrybomb Extreme and Glasspack mufflers for the Mustang sound identical?:confused:

It's just you.

And the reason that I didn't buy the ones from LMS is because well I don't do business with people like Geno. And I'm not impressed with the sound nor the look of the mufflers that he sells.

And the SCP mufflers have that same look. Looks too caddy to me. Not to mention that they sound very generic. Not to knock Bill, as he's a great guy and I've bought lots of things from him. And will buy much more in the future.

And although they say they are "already setup for the mark's" they aren't. They're just generic and have to be welded in just like anything else you buy.

I wish someone would make a "bolt in" exhaust for our cars, but until I can afford a mandrel bender and some classes I don't think it will happen.

Did find this. I thought our setup was complex.
