your best bet would be di/do midmounted muffler with everything from cats back remmoved running true duals. u can make variations to that setup but that's alike a base setup that as an overall rting gives u best sound.

Wow, thats a tough question. Theres many ways to go, you can just make it really loud and obnoxious, or meaner sounding with some added performance too. One of the toughest decisions to make with your vehicle in my opinion. It took me 5 years, then my doofus roomate totalled the car for me after only having my exhaust for 2 weeks.

I agree with smitty on this one. True duals with a Dual In/Dual Out muffler always sounds good and mean. Which you would either have to get custom bent up at an exhaust shop. Or you can always break down and get the ART kit.

There aren't any 5.0 clips, but it still gives you an idea of your options.

There are a few catbacks out there, but they only make it a little louder. But hey, it's better than stock.

- Dynomax Catback (better performance, but no louder than stock really).

- Flowmaster (a bit louder than stock, but nothing drastic)

If you want it loud and mean, you are going to have to get rid of the third cat and resonator. They hold back quite a bit of sound.

Good luck!

:confused: The thing is I have a 5.0, so would any of that stuff still work on mine?
Getting it custom done will be the best option for "true duals". Since the ART system is indeed designed for the 4.6. Only problem with the 5.0 is that the exhaust manifolds are setup differently. Otherwise it will technically fit. Just not bolt up to the stock 5.0 manifolds.

The catbacks will bolt right in though! And there are so many options when going custom....

Summit sells the Dynomax and Flowmaster catbacks or you can look into the SCP (pricey) exhaust: SCP Exhausts (they also sell the dynomax and flowmaster catbacks)

Not sure how strict your area is with emissions and what not, but I'd take it to a few local exhaust shops and see if they are willing to bend up some true duals for you while removing the third cat. Alot of places won't take off a cat in good working condition.

So what I did was cut off my entire exhaust after the first 2 primary cats myself. Then drove up to a local shop, told them I wanted true duals ran with a DI/DO muffler mid mounted, and some 18" x 3" tips. Gave me a quote of $490 for everything. Picked it up 3 hours later and the total came up to like $450 or something like that.

mid mounted single in, single out flowmaster (right after the cats and then right before the pipe bends) basically replace the resonator. Its the cheapest way to get the sound you want.
