So what does everyone think I should put into my Mustang to get as close as possible to that V8 grumble (without a V6-V8 swap lol). Also if you have links to mufflers/exhaust systems please link them as I would like to see what it would cost and look for possible sound clips.

You are going to need a full on exhaust system to get a close sound it will not really sound like a V8 but it will not sound like an import either. It will involve longtube headers, midpipe and a good catback system. One of the guys on here has a setup he posted a few days ago can't remember his name...... I will see if I can find it and get back to you shortly unless he posts first.
Yeah once I get moved into the new house I'm definitely going to start upgrading my car. I actually think I have an exhaust leak though. I'm gonna wind up making a video and posting it to see what everyone thinks.

I've learned to enjoy and live with what you can afford, and have. You'll never have that V8 sound, but that's okay. I rather supercharge my car than spend thousands just for my car to SOUND like a V8.
