    what kind of exhaust system would you guys recommend for 1993 ford f-150 regular cab with a 5.0 V-8? something that an average high school kid could afford.. i want to make it sound even more beastly than it already sounds.

    any help would be appreciated. :x::)

    Go to a custom shop and see what they can work out for you, or just any exhaust shop should beable to bend you pipe and install low priced mufflers for cheap,

    IMO, the cheapest, yet cleanest loud sound is a flowmaster (or generic brand muffler) dumped. Mine was only about $140 installed on my old F-150.

    Here's an old trick my dad used to do (not completely legal.) It's a unique sound but you might like it:

    After the cat put in a glasspack. Even better, gently cut open the glasspack, remove the media, then weld it back up. It's a legal looking way to basically run open headers. You've got a 5.0 so backpressure really shouldn't be any problem.

    If it's too much work just get a kit from Flowmaster or even DynoMax.

    goto a muffler shop and have them weld you a cat-back.
    Use a decent turbo style muffler.

    I like spin-tech myself.

    I have had Flowmaster and aslo Magna Flow. I prefer Flowmaster. I have had it installed on 3 different Trucks, and it always made them sound bad ass.

    I have a flowmaster on my chevy. It seems to be the stereotypical red-neck sound, so that's what I have.

    On my Tundra, I went with a 18" oval magnaflow with 2.5" in/out and it sounds AWSOME.

    I will definitely look at Magnaflow for my next exhaust.

    ford, cheap, and flowmaster are usually all used in the same sentence. single in, dual out and some nice chrome tips should set you back no more than $250 out the door.
