No cat-back or custom exhaust will give you that sound - it's a V6. There are options to make a nice sounding exhausts.
Differing exhaust configurations will create different sound outputs. There are a few choices out there, so we've compiled a database of exhaust sounds.
EXHAUST SOUND CLIPS
The SVT exhaust is a single 2.25" to two 2" pipes.
The SVT resonator is the most restrictive part of the exhaust. A popular modification is to replace the stock SVT resonator with a straight through glasspack or resonator. A popular one is the Magnaflow 10435.
19lb injectors will support 225-240 FWHP (standard on SVTs), which is sufficient for most 2.5s.
Terry Haines confirmed that the UIMs from all model year SVTs are indeed the same. Ford changed the part #s because...who knows.
The 5 extra horsepower is a result of:
- later heads being ported, early not
- later heads have a revised/added intake port hone
- .25 compression ratio increase in later years
Rick Miller from Extrude Hone also confirmed that the UIMs from all model year SVTs are the same.
=Non-SVT Duratec Performance=
- One of the most popular exhaust modifications for non-SVTs is to bolt on the SVT exhaust. The only modification needed would be to add a hanger.
- SVT Lower Intake Manifold (LIM)
- SVT Upper Intake Manifold (UIM)
- SVT Throttle Body (TB)
