I m looking into doing a full exhaust in the near future. Although i m having trouble first of all finding long tube headers for my 1996 v6 5sp. Does anyone know any sites that have these for sale?
Also as far as from header back what would be my best bet to get that V8 sounding exhaust. I hear to many 6's that sound like a Civic and I hate it I want a deep muscle sounds not a ricer sound. What will give me the best sound and where can I get it from?
I had an 02 GT for a while and I had the SLP Loudmouth on it which was amazing but I dunno if that will be nice on a 6. So what you guys think is best to go with and where can I get it from

Well the only to get a V8 sound is to have a V8, a V6 will always sound different.
That said, when looking for exhaust for my car I checked out several systems and found IMO that Pypes with an X pipe produced the best tone.
Not sure where would be best to get headers from, It has been a long time since I bought mine.
Yea I know I won't get exact V8 but at least near it. I seen the Pypes system your talking about on AmericanMuscle.com so maybe Ill just have to check that out. I just wonder if it will bolt on with long tube headers
yeah true duals sound nice and will only run you like $200 plus mufflers. But the lt's sound better and just mean for a V6 plus like Ryan said, they will have real performance gains. Speaking of lt's. How well will they pull without a real dyno tune, like if I just retune my engine with my diablo tuner will they still be alright?
If you have trouble finding MAC LT's, check out our sponsors.
I found everything I need at Stangmods.com. They have the Mac LT's and the shorty mid pipe and the cat back system like someone said is the best to do. Should cost about $1k for everything so hopefully I can get it soon
Don't forget install if your not doing it yourself. I was thinking about gettin lt's and the midpipe and installing them myself and then just driving it to an exhaust shop and having them mate my tailpipes and mufflers I have now to the midpipe.
Yea i m sure that install won't be cheap either. I got a guy that can do it real cheap though. I do his pc work he cuz my car work so it won't be bad. As long as it bolts up fine which I think with the shorty mid it will
