Unhappy has anyone fitted a balance pipe

hi guys was thinking of fitting a balance pipe to the sidepipes to smooth the exhaust tone out ,where is the best place to connect?,and do they work well?,i guess ground clearance could be an issue.I have been trying to quieten my car a little due to near approaching sound regulations.Another alternative could be new baffles in the pipes ,i don't want to change to underneath exhausts.I am running 4 inch side pipes and an internal baffle which consists of a perferated tube with glass rope wound around it,i also have 3 small plates staggered along the perferated tube,any sugestions would be helpful. thanks Dave

David,

Do you have the ground clearance for a balance pipe?

I think your question might get answered better on a Mustang Site or Mustang Shop.

They have alot of experience with "H" pipes.

Most of us like the lumpy sound!

Do you really think a balance pipe is reasonable considering the side exhaust most of us have?
