    yes wow i was going to make a post bout this cuz i will be putting one on the blue truck. Right now it sounds great but will it get louder like the new 4.6 gt mustangs do? Also i was going to put it close to where the pipes come off the header flanges is that a good place?

    they usually make the vehicle quieter and I have heard as close to the headers as you can get it is best. I wil be installing one right where it is in that picture when I get a set of flowmasters for the K5.

    Yup that's my exhaust.That's as far forward as we could put it.I heard the same thing though,mount it as close as you can to the manifolds as possible.

    An "H" pipe mellows and deepens the exhaust tone as well as helps low end torque a bit. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    From what I understand, you want the H pipe in the place with the most turbulence. you can find that place by spraying the pipes down with paint then run it at high idle watching for the points that burn off first.
