Offroad x/h pipes go behind your headers and unlike stock x/h pipes, they do not have catalytic converters which control and burn bad gases emitted by the engine. Not having a catalytic converter means a louder exhaust, bad pollution, great performance, and the possibility of failing your emissions test.

I am guessing you have flowmaster 50s on your mustang like me. The next step up for the 94 mustang, I have found, is the 44 series. They are much louder... so you should probably go for a different brand if you want in between.

if you already have aftermarket cat back system get some long tubes and an offroad mid pipe.

longtubes deff give you the extra somethin you want for your ear candy. although if you plan on doing the work yourself long tube can be a difficult install.

i highly suggest a new mid pipe and headers instead of just new mufflers. the stock headers are just plain junk and should've been replaced before they ever rolled these cars onto the showroom floor.

you should go to youtube and look up different exhaust setups on mustangs. i have bassani x-pipe w/catylitic converters, and bassani catback. its sounds amazing, fairly loud, but they are kinda pricey. if you still have the stock h-pipe you could change to an x-pipe and that change the sound quite a bit too.
