How can i make my car louder.
Yes if anyone out there can tell me how to make my car louder. I want it to almost sound like cobra. I have a 93 GT and i put flowmaster's on but that didnt make it loud enough. If you have any suggestions send me an email at email@example.com

ya, on a stock or near stock (ie, stock heads), running a straight exh. is gonna lessen performance due to the lack of backpressure. in general, the louder it is, the less obstuctions there are, and therefore less backpressure.

When mine was stock a 2-1/2" H-pipe and 2 chamber Flows helped a lot. But I've noticed that a stock motor with a loud exhaust sounds, well, loud. Not mean but loud. Once you get heads and a cam it sounds mean. Now I'm running 3 chamber Flows and I like it better than the 2 chambers - it doesn't have that obnoxious drone at 2000 rpm anymore.

If flowmasters aren't loud enough, get a Bassani x-pipe with or without cats depending on where you live. If that's not loud enough, get a cam which will really make your ride sound like a race car. I listened to someone drive my car and get on the gas for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it was really really loud fast sounding with the pipe and cam.

H-pipe sound better in my opinion and not to mention it's louder. I know about the 2hp difference and the $100 plus price difference too. I run full tube headers to an off-road h-pipe into some loud *** hooker mufflers. I had my car at anderson motorsports and they were asking me what kind of mufflers do I got other then loud. They sounded not too bad on my stock car but once I got a cam and heads those things woke up. The good thing about them is at idle and low rpm's they will sneak you into your house at night. Be warned these things can be heard a mile away at full throtle or at least it sure as hell seems that way.

i dont know if my car has a different cam or something, but it sounds bad *** with no tailpipes. just be willing to give up the stereo, unless it is louder than the exhaust will be.
mine, with nothing after the h-pipe, rumbles so low at idle that it gives me a headache.
also, keep a spare bottle of tylenol.

Want it louder? You need 2-chamber flowmasters and off road h-pipe.
Want it super loud (but doesn't really sound like Cobra, is kinda annoying after a while, and isn't good for your car), bolt on off road h-pipe and remove tail pipes, mufflers--not recommended though.

A relatively cheap, but effective, way is to get flowmaster 40 series (2 chamber) and gut your cats. Mine sounds plenty loud like that.

From all the people that drive Mustangs in my town, I think I have one of the loudest. I had stock headers, with a 2 1/2 H-pipe with 2 flushed cats, Dynomax Super Turbos, & 2 1/2 tips. It sounded ok but quiet. NOW, I have 1 5/8 long tube Hedmans, same H-pipe with no cats, Dynomax race bullets, & 4" tips, & it's "F***ING loud." At idle, it sound almost like a dragster, & when you give her, she roars like a race car. Find a picture of a Dynomax Race Bullet if you don't know what it looks like & then you'll know what I mean.

Go w/ open headers....remove everything from your headers back - it'll be tremendously loud. J/K. My 2-chamber flo's were one of my first mods - they sounded nice then, really nice now after all my mods.
