I thought you guys might like to see/hear the exhaust I had installed.
I put together a little video for it, so you can enjoy, and let me know what you think. On laptop speakers, it sounds a little tinny, and kind of ricey, and it doesn't get the full effect. I'm thrilled with the way it sounds, and I think it looks great.
Enjoy!

Sounds great! I really like how you did different views of it. Actually driving, both windows up and then down, and the view right beside it. Very nice sound! :thumb: haha I had my laptop speakers up pretty loud to hear it and my cats were slightly worried there was an actually car in the apartment hehe. :lol: Their ears were up and they were looking around. :)

Thanks! I'm glad you guys liked it!
And poor kitties! My kitten was quite concerned while I was doing the editing. I played those clips over and over getting everything cut and put together right.
I love it, and I love the look, it's a lot different from stock. It's also a lot lighter than the stock exhaust.

Thanks for the video clip.
I like the sound, of your ' BORLA ' exhaust. :yes: :thumb:

How did you set up, the filming procedure?.
With assistance of passenger?.
Or was the camcorder, mounted somewhere?.

The camera setup was pretty easy. That squeaking was from the camera setup.
What I did was raise the passenger headrest, place the camera on the seat, and lower the headrest to sandwich the camera in-between the seat and headrest.

Thanks for the video and good job with it! Things like this are much appreciated. I also like the different clips with the windows closed and open. :thumb:

I did the different clips because it's very different between windows up and down. My Fast likes the windows DOWN, but my girlfriend doesn't.
And if anyone was considering that muffler, or that exhaust configuration, I thought it might be useful to hear it in multiple ways. Plus, I'm just in love with the sound.

Well, here's where I bought the muffler:

And I had a local muffler shop do the piping, the tip, and the reconfiguration to point it out before the rear tire. You could keep the stock configuration and point it out of the back. I'd remove the second muffler, though, if I were going to go that route.

And no, my girlfriend likes the sound just fine, she's just not crazy about having the windows down.

Airmapper, Nice Bronco.
I saw your photo of the carb. I have a 67 six cylinder Mustang. It has the same carb. I picked up an extra one as a spare. Did you find a rebuild kit for it ?

I never noticed that squeak until you pointed it out.
Hmm, yeah, maybe. Normally I'm pretty obsessive about noises, squeaks, rattles and such.
