Ford engineers were trying to figure out why the v-6 mustangs drive shaft fails at 125 mph, then when they got it figured out, they circled the problem, or should I say put an oval around it and highlighted it in blue!!hahaha

I have the 80mm throttle body on my boosted setup with the ported intake manifold. Furthermore, all my piping is 3" from the throttle body to the exhaust 'tip'. It works great on my setup!

I'm also thinking over going with some cats either ARH, Hooker, or Solo. I seen on the ARH's they have smaller cats, Hooker have smaller cats or catless, but Solo has some with 200 Cell bigger cats and resonators. With the added stuff with the Solo's is that the reason for the higher price and do they perform and sound better than ARH's and Hooker's () or does it really not make that much of a difference sound or performance wise?

I had the ARH catless downpipes on mine and the quality was great. The power difference between catless and catted is just a couple of horsepower, but the sound difference is huge. Catted will be much easier to get a cleaner and deeper sound without any rasp, but catless has been a struggle for all of us to try and get the cleanest sound possible. I believe Derek has the cleanest catless setup as of now. Twin Town Terror's is pretty clean, too.


Mine does sound pretty good don't it ;-)

Yup. And I think I have a solution for it :-)

Firstly, thank you guys for both replying and what would guys would be the best set up that is the most cost effective? I'm a college student, but I have a more flexible budget than others.
