Smile Best mufflers and exhaust tips for 1997 Mustang V6 3.8L

Good evening my fellow Stang lovers. Can anyone recommend a good muffler which produces a deep tone for a 1999 Mustang V6 3.8L and exhaust tip? Any suggestions would be appreciated? Thanks in advance.?

The 3.8's are an even-fire motor. This means that it will NOT sound like a V8, no matter what you do. It can have a good idle, and nice sound up to 2500 or so, but at the upper ranges it will be 'buzzy'

Your best bet is a chambered muffler. Most run flowmaster 40s as a tried and true setup. Alternately, MAC and Dynomax also sound good. I have had both of these, and prefer a dynomax chambered muffler.

For tips, rolled or double-walled. If you do no have the GT rear bumper, a 2.5" tip will look nice under the bumper.
