Exhaust plan

I'm gonna see about removing my Cats(getting them gutted) and using Flowmaster super 44s on the stock pipe, and then getting probably 3 1/2" Black Chrome tips.

Don't gut the cats, you'll only lose power. Leave them or replace them with pipe or high flows

Well crap, I have to have cats in texas, and I've seen that it's a little louder without the cats. So, just the super 44 mufflers?

You're lucky you're not in California because you can get any type of CAT you want. Here in California, we're restricted to what we can get. Magnaflows are the only option for hi-flows that are still legal...

'97 Bird, "Pearl": L/R 2.5in Magnaflow Hi-Flow CATs | PI Intake & PI Cams | Suspension Rebuild

'13 Taurus, "The Bull": 3.5L Goodness

'00 2dr v6 Accord, "Dirty Girl": Magnaflow Hi-Flow CAT | Greddy SP2 CAT-Back | Eibach ProKit springs | Eibach F/R Sway Bars | KYB-GR2 struts

That REALLY sucks. but, I also live in the sticks. I can get away with a little bit. What type of cats should I get to pair with the super 44s?
And/or piping.

There are different routes you can take with aftermarket CATS if you search. However, I recently replaced mine with the Magnaflow y-cat setup, very pricey, but I scored a good deal. Here is what I stole off of ebay >> y-cat

I already mentioned on a different post here that I didn't choose to replace my cats using this expensive route, but I had to. My cats were diagnosed via different methods to be bad.

I have the super 44s I like them, they have a nice rumble but not too loud.. I really want to try some magnapacks.. 2.5 inch full exhaust x-pipe and high flow cats. Not sure of the brand on the cats. I used to run no mufflers it was crazy loud and great for around town just cruising but on long trips you want to shoot yourself.

Leave the cats and resonator in - start with straight pipes where the rear mufflers should be, clamped on.

Move to a set of glass packs (the Thrush on the Dakota sounds pretty good on the V6 in it, and with the tail pipe, is fairly quiet - tailpipe is about 3' of 2" pipe, so it'd be a lot louder on a MN12).

Keep shifting up until you get what you want.

Also, if it still has it, remove the air silencer up front.

The air silencer that frees Tibet? XD
Ron's post, that was funny stuff.
The thrush glasspack mufflers are cool. Are you the one with that bird with those on it, that has a YouTube video about it?

Nope, my Cougar is still factory exhaust (for a while longer, anyway.)

That Thrush is on the Dakota pickup.

Oh, ok. Basically this is only a plan, but I'm supposed to drive it around today. So, I'll post a video of it running xD hopefully I can hurt and get that exhaust system done, but I doubt it will be anytime soon, due to the fact that I'm broke as crap.

I actually like this way pretty well, the only problem is the money part of it.

What size pipes are those? They look a lot less restrictive. The more I think about it I might run that cat assembly, and the dynomax catback, pricey yes, but it should flow really good.

Ahhh, I'll have to triple check the exact size, they fit "snug" up under there, but no clearance issues. As for flow, much better flow since it does have mandrel bends, and these are S/S, so they look nice also!

Cut your mufflers off. Free.

High flow cats and aftermarket mufflers really wont do anything for you power-wise .. if anything, you'll lose a little low end torque.

When I first got my 95 I was on a very tough budget. I bought flowmaster 10 series (single chamber muffler). Cut the exhaust off a few inches past the middle resonator and clamped the 10 series to that and bought a 6 dollar turn down and dumped it. Sounded good. Total cost was under 100 bux.

Depends on your budget bud. My advice, come up with a true money amount you have for your exhaust idea and then these guys here can really get into how to help ya out.

Can't cut the muffler, won't pass inspection. Of the cats either.
