    Default mustang sound!

    I'm thinking of changes mufflers or whatever it takes, to get a sound at least as good as what mustangs have...something above what is standard on factory 93, yet not overbearing inside. Has anyone switched standard to something else? (magnaflow, flowmaster etc) with gradifying results?

    Why would anyone want a Corvette to sound like a Mustang?.

    Maybe you should buy a Mustang.
    Just sayin'......

    You could get Loud Mouth exhaust resonators. They are SLP products and sound pretty mean on the LT1 engines in the F-bodies.

    a4152-jpg I used these from KBD on my 89 C4 and they sounded a heck of a lot better than a Mustang..... And, this is what they sound like. (not mine but just like it)

    I don't like making plans for the day. The word "premeditated" is not useful when it gets thrown around a courtroom.

    There are two ways to go with this situation

    1) You can just change the mufflers which will change the sound (and how the sound changes depends purely on what muffler you buy) but likely will not change the car's performance in a practical manner.

    2) You can change the entire exhasut system from the cats back (and, again, how the sound changes depends on what exhaust system you buy) and get a slight gain in performance.

    There will be a big difference in cost between the two.

    The first thing you need to decide is: "Do I want to spend a modest amount to just change the sound" or "Do I want to spend a lot more and change the sound and the performance."

    When I changed my exhaust, the front Y pipe was changed to an "off road use only" no pre cat type, the catalytic converter was replaced with a performance cat and the big a$$ mufflers were replaced with the KBD's. Not a lot of performance difference but it sure sounded better.
