Compiling a comprehensive exhaust database, help!
#154821 - 01/18/03 05:48 PM

Hey everyone,
I have posted this over in the Duratec forum as well.
Currently DemonSVT and I are putting together a FAQ that will be updated regularly with a lot of quality information. I wanted to extend on this a bit, and have an exhaust database.
That way, there would be one webpage with all sorts of exhaust options, real-world opinions, video clips, and sound clips. This is where I need your help though!
If you have a modified exhaust, you can help out!
What I will need from you:

Name:
Board name:
Engine/Tranny: (SVT V6/MTX...)
Detailed list of your exhaust mod: (I.E... 2.25" Mandrel bent single pipe with a 2" resonator to 2" quasi-dual pipes with baffled rear mufflers and 2.5" tips.)
Cost/Installation Charge: I.E...$500 for the parts, and $100 for the install.
Opinion: (what it sounds like when cold/warm. rasp? droan?)
Misc. Info: (anything that would be helpful to aide someone in their exhaust decision.)

Feel free to email me as well! Contact me via PM or Email about sound/video clips!

Thanks everyone for your time, hopefully it will be a big success! Mods, if you can sticky this topic, it would be greatly appreciated!

-Andy

Zetec ATX
SVT exhaust
$20 parts, $40 install
Sounds perfect...nice low growl, but won't wake the neighbors.
Installation is a pain on the Zetec. Having no Y-pipe, you're left about a foot short for the connection. Have a plasma cutter handy and cut the pipe from the resonator to the connecting flange from you stock exhaust. Do same for SVT exhaust. Trade them, and weld on, making sure that the exhaust hanger peg is lined up correctly. Also note: Need an exhaust hanger on pass. side.

Kamikaze race header, 2.5" downpipe to 2.5" flex pipe to 2.5" race cat, 2.25" pipe back to Matrix muffler, no resonator
$640 for parts/$300 for labor
Nice low tone at idle, a lot of rasp at full throttle, will wake up your neighbors a couple of blocks away! I am serious.
If you consider doing a race header make sure you can handle more noise.

Joe Hartley
ZetecRacing
DynoMax Ultraflow in stock res location 2.5" pipe going from flang to the muffler split to dual straight pipes 2.25" with 3" stainless steel tips.
some what quiet at idle has a deep tone and just gets louder and louder as you hit the gas. and there is no rasp weather the car is cold or has been warmed up. people that have heard it think I have a perfromance V6 under the hood
I got this exaust through a trade with another Contour owner who was looking to make his quieter due to the race headers he has on his duratec all I payed for was labor and a hanger for the second outlet pipe which was $150 to put my exaust on his car and put his on mine.

Zetec/MTX

SVT Exhaust w/ resonators still on

$75 for exhaust (not cut/from local CEGer) - six pack of beer for install by StreetFlight.

Very subdued at idle and when casually rowing the gears. Really wakes up under hard accelaration and has a very, very nice tone when engine braking. My CAI makes more noise than the exhaust usually

I dynoed the exhaust and lost nothing down low and gained a couple HP throughout the upper revs.

If someone has audio of a Zetec w/ SVT exhaust and no resonators, I'd love to hear it.

se zetec ATX

2.25 mandrel bent pipe with no resonator. The 2.25 pipe starts right after the flex pipe and runs into a flowmaster 40 series muffler.

Muffler $70 installation and pipes $80
Makes a deep sound when on idle, when its cold it will rasp just a bit but the rasp will go away quick. It sounds deep all the time, its not very loud and wont wake your neighbors unless you gun it. Cruising it is not loud at all and will keep cops away from you. If you are looking for a perfect sleeper this is the one for you.

97 Zetec ATX

2.25" mandrel bent pipe after stock resonator. Dualed out behind gas tank, which is straight piped out to 2.5" chrome tips in svt bumper openings.

$75 to have stock exhaust removed at resonator and Y'd out to 2 straight pipes w/ chrome tips.

Has a nice growl at idle. A tad raspy when extremely cold but once warm has a nice note to it. Not extremely loud unless really getting on it, and really little or no droning at highway speeds. Sound varies when getting on it. Sometimes it's deep and throaty, other times it's just annoying, but what exhaust isn't at times. Also has a nice growl when coming to a stop from speed.
Started out to just be something temporary or so I though but it has grown on me to where I think I'll keep it like it is.

atx,zetec

stock single pipe to magnaflow res 10425, to svt exhaust

75 for res, 100 for exh, 80 for install

sounds loud at 3500-4000 rpm when i pass daydreamers on street otherwise quiet, louder than what i had but no drone, also sounds good at hiway speed just cruising along

not a bad start, would like to enlarge piping from res forward, maybe a hi flow cat, then better mufflers

Duratec
Local muffler shop. Aprox $325. 2.5" pipe starting after flex. Custom y-pipe just before fuel tank. Splits to two small glass packs and then very nice large tips. Was too loud so I put a third large inline resognater ater the cat, before the fuel tank. Starts/idles very nice. Sounds great in the car, especially when revving. I found, however, that it only sounds good when you are inside the car, probably due to induction (giant AFE cone filter, no air box). When wifey drives it down the strett and gases it, it sounds just a tad ricey and I don't like that. Maybe I'm crazy, but I really wanted it to sound just like a stock Mustang GT!!! Also, in low RPMs, like 1,200, under heavy load (stupid ATX), the drone can still be somewhat loud even with third large glass pack resognator (stock resognator removed).

I went to my local muffler shop and got 2.25 pipe put on in place of resonater, and then all the way to the back into a magnaflow muffler. Nice sound, not loud at all but has a little growl, can feel it nicly when going around a corner.

Nothing really. Used to have no muffler. That was a little nice. Sounded like crap when it was idling or coming down while placed in a gear. Now I have a Type RS muffler (It is really good! I promise) which can be Fairly loud when needed. Nice and loud when WOT (Intake is still louder... intake is REALLY loud) and it is deep. Not ricey AT ALL.
Cost was 60 bucks for the muffler off e-bay and 77 tohave it installed. I had about 5 feet of 2.25 of new exhaust put on.

This will be GREAT!! But this thread has been around for some time now & I have not seen any links to a sound clip database or web page.

Obviously, there will be separate listings for I-4 & V-6 cars. Would it be a waste of time to further delineate single Vs dual exhaust exit categories?

I also suggest that we standardize the recording location (6" behind the driver side tail light) so all clips can be compared directly.

So, any collection of files yet?

UPDATE:

Possibly the final exhaust mod for this zetec.

SVT Exhaust w/ stock resonator and rear mufflers replaced with straight pipe.

IMO fairly quiet, no rasp and cannot be heard over the CTA intake.

I give it a thumbs up, looks nice too.

If you could zip it, I could run it through my video editing software and pull the audio track out, then convert it to MP3. That's the only way to get it to a native audio format at this point. The file sounds like it's an MPEG-1, but that's a good thing for pulling the audio off...

Name: Jason
Board name: jason732
Engine/Tranny: Zetec MTX
Detailed list of your exhaust mod: 2.25" Mandrel bent single pipe with no res from flexpipe to a Magnaflow rear muffler and 2.25" turndown tip.
Cost/Installation Charge: $230 installed.
Opinion: At idle, it sounds almost stock. At moderate throttle it's definately louder than stock. At WOT, it's a helluva lot louder than stock. Just cruizing around the grocery store parking lot, you could tell it was louder, but not obnoxious. It won't take any trophies for loudness, but it's got a mellow, deep and even tone with a little rasp when cold, but that's it. Even on the freeway at +/- 75 there's no drone.
Misc. Info: If you want a nice, mellow sounding exhaust that's not going to get you a ticket, this is it. I'm very impressed with the increase in the low end torque I've gained and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's loud when I want it to be, but quiet when I need it to be. I had a guy standing next to the car when I first started it and he said "You just had exhaust work done?" then I floored it, and then it floored him. His expression was priceless. Something like:

4banganda5spd

'96 Zetec MTX

2.25" aluminized pipe from after flex pipe back to aluminized Flowmaster 40 series Delta Flow muffler in stock muffler location, no resonator.

$57 for muffler
$10 shipping
$275 for pipe and installation

very deep at idle with slight burble. smooth, healthy, agressive sound while accelerating. no angry bees or rice rocket cans. deceleration in gear creates a deep resonation in and outside of the car with no popping or undesirable noises. just slightly louder than stock while cruising with no droning,.. very livable. will rasp a little initially after start up for a short time if engine is cold, but will go away quickly as motor warms. overall a very clean, sporty sound, from a system that provides much improved flow resulting in more horsepower, torque, and fun.

First: Scrapped everything from rez back and upped pipe to 2¼. Then y"d off at next to last bend and on back to 2 nice chrome angle cut with rolled edges tips. looks great but too loud.

Second: replaced rez with glasspack. Better but still to loud for me.

Third: Added mini GP's just before the tips. Now we're getting somewhere, it's much more better although I'm thinking about replacing the mid GP with a Cherry Bomb twin tube GP. They say it gives you the performance of a GP but the quite of a turbo muffler

Engine/Tranny: Zetec MTX
Detailed list of your exhaust mod:Mystery mod, SVT exhaust, with aftermarket resonator (cant remember brand) with polished Magnaflows (were on the exhaust when I bought it) running into ~3.5" tips.
Cost/Installation Charge: <$150
Opinion: Quiet at idle. The vibrations from the (4) poly motors mounts make more noise then the exhaust puts off. Interior drone is there, especially at 3500 RPMs and when shifting. Again I believe this is due to the mounts and not the exhaust. Up into the RPMs it has somewhat of a ricey sound, but a lot deeper. Im happy with it.
Misc. Info: I doubt its going to be calling the cops to come get me, but if I was in a quiet neighborhood and someone had their windows open, they would hear me. Cant judge power differences as it was installed when I did my ATX/MTX swap.

Cost/Installation: $64 total.
Opinion: Sounds a bit louder than stock when driving normal, half thottle, a bit louder, WOT, really loud.
Misc. info:Catches people at the track by supprise everytime. When down RPMs, has a slight wine. Really good, suggested. Im about to remove the res and go w/the 2.25" piping and see what happens.

Zetec ATX. Focus 4into1 stainless shortie header. Cat removed. Runs into 2.5" stainless pipe(instead of cat) for 1 foot. Drops to 1 7/8" makes a hard right and goes for 6 inches and goes straight back to stock flex pipe. stock exhaust till pipe turns to go straight back to bumper (removed secondary muffler) and installed a 2" cherrybomb with a center exit exhaust. Nice low tone at idle and nice mellow tone cruising. When you get on it, it does blat a bit and sounds quite raspy whether or not it is cold or warm. Not the way I would recommend doing an exhaust. Didn't seem to help power at all.

Name: Armin
Board name:
Engine/Tranny: zetec I4 ATX

Detailed list of your exhaust mod: Custom Mandrel Bend after Gastank. 2.25". Dynomax Magnum Glasspack Muffler in place of the RES. No Mufflers just straight tips.

Cost/Installation Charge: Muffler was 20 from jegs, cost $30 to put muffler on and 80 to put the straight pipes on in place of the mufflers.

Opinion: Nice sound when started. Cold or hot no rasp. Deep sound when normal driving and nice drone when on the freeway......

BTW, What would a dynomax ultra flow sound like in place of the res with no mufflers. Will it be a loud obnoxious sound or will it sound good? Good as in kind of deep nice drone, not that loud of rasp.

#1203969 (Re: LittleFishie) 03/30/06 02:43 PM

Hello Folks,
I am returning to the mod scene. I have a 96 Contour GL-Sport, Zetec MTX.

I am looking to perform some serious mods:
1) CTA Intake.
2) Magnecor 8.5 wires, Bosch Platinum +4 plugs, voltage stabilizer. Am
considering an Accel CDI ignition as well
2) Brakes. Anyone know of how to convert drum to disc?
3) Strut bars and rear 21mm BAT bar, urethane bushings everywhere
4) Exhaust. Headers and catback
5) Fidanza alum flywheel, Unorthodox U/D pulley
6) Cyl head work, cams, intake manifold matching (to cyl head)

I have a bracket from A/C connecting to head, making the shorty Focus header impossible. I like the shorty b/c it allows me to use the stock cat.
However, I am looking at long tube headers (4-1, NOT 4-2-1) so that I can increase power. I plan to remove the stock resonator and put the stock cat down in it's current location. Is this a good idea?
I want to remain street legal.

Thanks,
Shamun

Just for the proper function of the unit, it might be a little too far downstream at that location. Additionally, you may want to keep the res to quiet the headers, then later on have the option to delete or upgrade to a Magnaflow.

For my daughters Zetec, I added the 4-1 headers and placed a new 'bullet' cat right after the headers. Kept the stock res which I plan to replace with a Magnaflow or similar in the next week or two.

Must be that jumbly-wumbly thing happening again.

#1213185 (Re: LittleFishie) 04/11/06 02:03 PM

SOrry for the newbie post, please don't flame me! I am looking for an exhaust system for my 96. I recent purchased a Tsudo header from eBay. It is a long-tube 4-1 type, with O2 senson bung. Unfortunately, my current O2 sensor seems to attach to the cat (it looks like it). I am going to purchase a high-flow cat that I wish to place just aft of the header collector.
1) Do you recommend any particular high flow cat (brand, size, flanges (two or three bolt))?
2) I wish to replace the center resonator with a straight pine. Can the stock muffler handle the extra flow?
As for install, I sure hope that DanG is up for a project!

Many thanks,
Shamun

2 1/4" pipe from flex back with 5x8 Magnaflow muffler in Resonator location. Exhaust was painted black with a 2.5" slash cut chrome tip at the end. Quiet as stock w/ res cut out but gets louder as your right foot goes down. Nice and mellow sound cruising.
