Yeah, seriously, what's the point?

I'd rather have a quieter car with a quality sound rather than a super loud car that's obnoxious and sounds like shit.

My car draws enough attention as it is. I don't need to be heard coming from half a mile away like some of the cars in the city I live in.

Also, my V6 4th gen sounded really good, no rasp, not high pitched, I had headers, but the key was a muffler that wasnt the "loudest" one out there, it needs to be subdued a bit to keep the v6 out of that high pitched register.
I'd have to agree. The s/c whine in that video sounds menacing.

Are there any existing Mustang V6 videos with a setup similar to this? I enjoy listening to a good sounding V6 setup so I'd be interested in hearing this.

This was a thread at experimentation stage. Only constant was the longtubes. It's since been concluded that straight through mufflers are no good. Chambered are the way to go. you can see we don't enjoy that sound. Since then,Borla and American Racing have released higher quality longtubes for the v6 mustang

Sorry, that is one of the funniest videos I have ever seen. 0:30 mark makes me laugh uncontrollably.

There is always something comical about hearing the engine of a vehicle SCREAM while it snails along

Your right...its just too much.

But with over 300 horse at the wheels, the car is no snail.
