hey guys, i just bought an '04 lightning and have been reading through this forum and a couple people have talked about adding bassani exhaust system to their lightning. i am not too familiar with this brand but am looking for an aggressive, deep, throaty sound for my exhaust. im looking for ya'lls opinion on bassani exhaust or any recommendations you have for a good exhaust that will add horsepower. i read that flowmasters may not be the best choice for a lightning.......thanks
You will not see any HP gains from adding a cat back exhaust system, but as far as the V-8 engine sound goes you can not beat the Bassani. They have a great rumble at idle and a healthy roar when you get into the throttle.
Thanks guys, i plan on getting full length headers and making the exhaust true dual, just wanted some feedback, thanks for the input.....bassani makes headers also, would it be worth it to get bassani headers or is kooks a better choice
i had a friend come over last night with an '04 mustang with true dual magna-packs, i have never heard of them but they are supposedly magnaflows rendition of glass-packs, anyway, it sounded unbelievable! he also had no cats on it which i have read sacrifices power, so now i'm at a fork in the road. i have never heard a bassani exhaust in person. i am just going for sheer sound, any guys got opinions on which sounds better?
I prefer the magnaflow sound. With the full length headers and high flow cats, it was nice and deep and didn't drone. When you get on it though, it screamed. The Bassani was too loud for my taste and had a different sound.
If you do a google search, I am sure you can find sound clips of each. I know on other boards they had been posted a few times. Also, some venders have them on their websites.
