    Well I had a custom y-pipe made up on my '98 5.0 The y-pipe joins the stock pipes together into a 3" pipe and that runs into a 3" flowmaster 40 series muffler and then thats dumped at the rear axle. It sounds so much better than stock. I suggest it to anyone. Any questions?

    I could probably get some pics up today or tomorrow. The flowmaster was $75 shipped and the y-pipe and installing everything was $70. So for $145 I got a great sounding exhaust. A lot better than some quiet sounding mac catback for $250.

    Where did you get your flowmaster from? They installed everything for $70?

    I bought the flowmaster off of a guy on ebay. Just search for 3" flowmaster and the guys sells a lot on there. It was $65 and then $10 shipping. Yes it was $70 for the custom y-pipe to join the stock pipes and to install it, the flowmaster and fab up a tail pipe that dumps at the rear axle. No it is not 3" all the way back from the cat. Its only 3" from after the resonators or whatever is underneath the car about half way, right in front of the muffler.

    Its a 40 series. I have the same ones on my mustang and they sound great. The 50's are too quiet and the 30's are too hollow sounding. I think the 40s are the best sounding.
