Everything needs to stay emission compliant for here in Colorado.
Best setup I've heard for a 4v is Bassani x-pipe with Borla cat back. Cool thing with the Bassani mid pipe is that the cats can be removed and put back on easily.

x2. I did the MM lower control arms and it literally was a night and day difference in handling. Do the panhard bar with the control arms and you'll be golden.

Ordered this morning.

Magnaflow MagnaPack Catback Exhaust (99-04 GT, Mach 1; 01 Bullitt): $642.99
  • Features MagnaPack mufflers
  • 2.5" Mandrel-bent Stainless tubing
  • Polished 3.5" tips
Product Order Page: Magnaflow MagnaPack Catback Exhaust (99-04 GT, Mach 1; 01 Bullitt)



Once the system gets here I'll be looking at the tips - I might replace them with a nice rolled slant tip setup. Not a huge fan of the standard "open ended" slant cut (non-rolled edge) they come with.

I'm not a fan of Magnaflow tips either. I want to also change to a rolled slant tip setup, ideally flat black tips for a more blacked out look .

FYI, the mufflers are packed so you gotta run the car after installation to get that stuff out. And check the exhaust after a couple hundred miles since it will loosen while breaking in and will need to be tightened up. Once its completely broken in, it will sound so nice.
