Is it really this easy???

This is pretty much the sound I am looking for out of my car. Getting on the gas gives it a nice sharp bark, but it's not like the annoying single-tone fart can sound from my buddies Honda with open headers lol.

I ran mine like that for a few years and it's really more flattering in videos than in person, the cabin drone is worse than my midmount/true duals yet wasn't particularly loud outside comparatively. It's almost silent at idle and the tone is very flat and indistinct through most of the rev range. Better than stock though if you want to hear the exhaust, so cheap fun... for a while.

I sort of figured it would have drone to a certain degree, but good lord it can't be as bad as my friends old 2005 Focus with 3" single straight pipe! I basically want that "snarl" when the gas is hit, as well some snap crackle pop on deceleration, with a noticeable idle rumble as well. Any ideas of what to take off/add that might get me close to such a sound?

I been thinking of trying muffler delete. From what I have read here it seems like a split of like it or hate it.

How does it sound with two glasspacks? That would be easy enough as well and quiet it down a tad

It's quiet without the mufflers as is, the cats and the puny pipe diameter make sure of it. glasspacks will just make it sound crappier

This is my '93 5.0 bird. I bought the car back in october with the resonator and mufflers deleted. Also has the 3rd cat. I personally enjoy it. It tends to drone around 1800 then again around 22-2400 rpm. It's all about personal preference. The straight pipe sound on my bird kinda grew on me.
