turbo question

my last performance car was a SRT-4 and i loved the turbo power. so i'm thinking i whant to turbo my stang but i love the sound of the a off-road H pipe and flows on a 5.0.. is there a way to have both the great sound and the turbo? i worry that the turbo and y pipe will kill that sound i love.

does anybody have a sound clip or something?

My notch has a catted Hpipe and 3 chamber flows on it. It is pretty quiet. It still sounds like flows tho. If you run the exhaust thru the cats only, it is pretty loud. So with an off road Hpipe and maybe 2 chambers, you should be fine for the noise you want. By the way, turbos and chambered mufflers are not the greatest combo for power.

you don't need a y-pipe if you run twins

snipe: thanks for merging the threds i did not know i had two..

i have heard that before but why is that the chambered muff and turbos don't play nice togher. what about a supercharger would it have the same bad affect on the s/c

Since turbos rely on exhaust pressure to spin them, the extra backpressure from chambers can interfere. This is in theory. I wonder if I just un hooked my flows if my dyno numbers would have changed. The big fan in the dyno room is louder than my car lol.
