Final Exhaust Proposal
Ok i have a 97 taurus w/ 3.0 vuclan with a single exhaust pipe, the final plan is:
tear the entire stock single pipe out all the way back to the headers (which means resonator and all cats are gone!)....replace with 2 1/4" mandrel bent pipe, add one magnaflow hi-flow cat somwhere near the end of the pipe (to pass emissions) and then a flowmaster 40 series original flow muffler and 2.5" straight tips to cap it off.
The questions: Am i missing anyrthing? What kinda price am i lookin at? Will i get a badass v8 sound like i want? What kind of HP boost will i get?
