Default mufflers?

Hey Guys,

I'm restoring a 1973 Mustang Grande Coupe with a 302 engine. Long tube headers came with the car. I want to just put a 4' straight pipe after the collector a muffler with a turn down pipe before the rear axle. Any suggestions on a muffler? Looking for performance, don't care how loud it is. I actually prefer it be as loud as possible. I live in Florida with no vehicle inspections so I can put any exhaust I want.

Its 100 % illegal, but you said you can put any exhaust you want because of no vehicle inspection

Plenty of people care.

If you like the raw sound, get some dump valves on it and open them up on demand. It can be nice and quiet the rest of the time.

Not the people that can do anything about it, otherwise 90% of Harleys wouldnt have straight pipes.

OP, you can do something like Flowmaster Outlaws, im sure you can fit them on any car but they are marketed for the newer Mustangs, pretty close to straight pipes without being illegal.

Pypes M-80 are also an easy universal install, and not too expensive.
