Help to Decide

I'd like my Bird to sound a little more aggressive. Right now it sounds like an old man's wimpmobile (no cracks about my age, now you younguns!). I don't have a lot of money to spend as I'm now living on a fixed income (read social security).... So, what's the least expensive way to get a little more "grunt" from her?

Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.

Not sure about the price (it was a Christmas gift from my Dad)...but I have true dual exhaust and Flowmaster 44's and I'm really satisfied with the sound, although I MIGHT get some hi-flow cats to replace the stock ones. I too have the 4.6

Maybe someone could post about the price, but that's my set up.

Just go to a muffler shop and tell them to cut the mufflers (or are they called silencers) I did that to mine and sounds real good, and a muffler shop probably charge you 40 to 60 bucks that's probably the cheapest way.

Well When I cut my mufflers off it sounded good till I left the driveway and then it turned into a higherpitched noise with drone.So I gotta flowmaster cat back and it cleared that up for alittle bit.I eventually went with some Trueduals and an X-Pipe dumping with to dynomax mufflers and prefer that sound much better.

I still have the flowmaster cat back if you're interested.

What about This?

Is this a true bolt on? I can't understand how the same muffler system will fit a 5.0 and a 4.6?

Cut mufflers sound alright at idle and WOT, anywhere between 1k and 3k rpm's its just a buzzing humming pos.
