Sport Exhaust

In an attempt prevent hi-Jacking some else's thread I'll just start another one...

So there have been several discussions about our mufflers and exhaust I was looking at some pics posted by another Sport owner (can't get under mine with 3" water in driveway) and am I wrong or does this car have twin down pipes, twin cats into a dual in dual out muffler and finally into a final muffler or what I would call a resonator?

I need to get under there and look at that initial muffler after the cats and get a couple measurements. Has anybody looked at the Dynomax Ultra Flo X-Pipe Muffler or the Flowmaster Super 50 to replace this unit?

My original plan was to use a flowmaster 40 series dual in and dual out in place of the boat anchor, but I purchased the MRT. Im still going to play around with it and first try to add an H where the MRT mounts to the stock exhaust and if Im not satisfied, I'll try the flowmaster.

Im gonna try the H to cut out the 1800rpm drone and I hope it gives it a little deeper tone. I doubt it will help with the tone, but its worth a shot and it won't cost much.
I like to experiment and I ran 5 different set ups on my last mustang before I was happy.

Been researching and the Dynamax Ultra Flo has an internal X-pipe design.

Ultra Flo? Welded X Mufflers - DynoMax® Performance Exhaust

Not sure what the Flowmaster Series 50 internals look like but I have found over the years that drone is a given with Flowmasters.

Froshy00 I have ducks running in multiple directions (on multiple cars as I was just reminded by my bride) but slowly I will get them all lined up. Current direction for sport is Baseline stock performance, improved air filter/resonator removed straight out with factory tips, test for gains, replace upstream muffler with performance version test for gains, Tune, test data and data log fortune tweak and somewhere in there track time.

I am curious what is in that initial muffler as well. I was looking at the MRT but a buddy told me about a small shop about 30 minutes from me that does great exhaust work. So I plan on getting them to remove the resonator and run pipe to factory tips. Should be about 1/2 the cost of the MRT kit but yield same results.

Good luck! I know whatcha mean. Im really sensitive to what my car sounds like. I dont know if an h pipe will help with either of your goals though

I have an H pipe magna-flo resonator with Jones Twin Turbo Tubes and it sounds great...

After getting her up to speed hardly any drone in the cockpit at all, just a low mummer...
