SVT exhaust????

I've been debating on what kind of exhaust to put on my 2004 SVT. I want something that is going to have a deep, intimidating sound. Any suggestions out there? I would appreciate any help I get on a decision!!!!

zero... zed... naught... the exhaust on the svt is pretty damn good from the factory. the only time you will see gains from a catback is when you go fi. till then it just makes it sound different. now a highflow cat or orp on the other hand is worth a few ponies.

orp + borla. i've gotten many complements and i think it's worth every penny. doesn't sound ricey and it has a nice deep tone to it.

That's what I was going for is a non-ricey, deep sound. Before this car, I've been a big muscle car fan. I have an 88 mustang (5.0 conv.) and a 72 nova. I love the deep, power sound. None of the motorcycle sound.

If the piping is bigger then OEM it should yield gains.

c-f-m & borla for sure, it's what I have and I love every second of driving it, I have a sound clip up and have posted it a few times, should be easy to find...there will be a little bit of gains but nothing major...maybe with both pieces you'll pick up 10hp.

Nope.
Not on the SVT if it's still NA.
The SVT exhaust is already larger than the standard models, and throwing something on that's substantially larger will only kill power in the bottom end.

Actually, Tom put 3 " catback on a car, dyno'd it and saw a 10whp gain.
