well i've heard by experience that the LS1's (therefore LS2's), have a much lower, throatier rumble than do the little 4.6L's. While an LS1 with a free-flowing exhaust will be noticable at idle, and only get louder and meaner through the rpm range, mustangs tend to be barely noticable at idle, with a noticably raspy yell when the throttle is goosed.

Generally, it's easier to make a mustang sound better than an LSX series motor. I'd be willing to accept a pickier catback option however for the extra 100 horses. :cool

On a related note, I was next to a kid in a V-6 today that sounded mean. I swear to god it sounded like a nice V-8. Or at least a Mustang GT.
With certain catbacks, those 3.8L's can sound a lot like V8's on idle. They are just 350's with two cylinders cut off.

I just installed the cervini side exhaust kit on my 06 GT, and it is mean. My buddy has a 05 GTO and he told me that now when he gets in the goat he turns the key and sighs, he says its just not enough anymore. so we're in the process of find him some side dumps as well :cheers

I will agree the GTO exhaust does sound deeper but I do give credit to GT's with exhausts, I love the way they sound. That goes double for GTO's with exhausts of course :cheers

one_focused_svt: I love the black on black with the chrome.. But you need to drop that shyte :cool

SVT, you need to update your picture to show us those side-exit exhaust pipes, I bet that does look pretty sweet.
