Thumbs up Exhaust Suggestions anyone? Please..

Hey guys,
I'm back to say the truck is completely mechanically sound again and it is amazing. The truck has none to little problems with it now. The only problems im having right now is a tiny loss of power, but it's age that is bringing it. It's got 213, XXX and is still kicking though. But the reason for me posting today is I want to know any suggestions and the best deals and places i can get a new exhaust system installed. I'm looking to buy true duals not any crossover stuff. Is there any good ones out there? I've been looking to get it soon. I want er to scream but yet be clean sounding without glasspacks, glasspacks in my opinion don't sound the best on 5.0's. The truck is a 1993 F-150 5.0L 302 V8 2WD Long Bed. All suggestions are accepted and will be well appreciated.
Thanks Everyone,
Jason.

Best bet is to get a fully custom setup from an exhaust shop. Most of the "kits" you find are really expensive and your better off just going to a exhaust shop.


There are millions of exhaust threads and everyone has their own opinion on what sounds best. Do an advanced search and look on youtube to get an idea. I personally like Magnaflow and Borla mufflers.

SVT may be true, but where i live exhaust shops install this flimsy tubing that sounds like crap and rots out after 2 years. Go with the name brands, Flowmaster, Magnaflow, Borla etc i ordered mine from flowmaster. A cat back dual system customizable for rear or side exits. Really thick gage tubing with all mounting hardware and stainless steel tips (muffler shops won't give you that)

grab a phone book or stop someone that has a good sounding ride and ask gearheads are a good bunch usually but have a shop do it not some knucklehead in his back yard you might get burned.
