The only choice
After watching countless exhaust clips, I settled on the Corsa Xtreme axleback. I own a 2012 Boss 302 and had been running the stock mufflers with the side exhaust baffles removed. The car sounded great as is, but it needed more. This exhaust takes it to a new level. With the regular key, the car is about the same at idle, although clearly the tone has become a little deeper and richer. The volume increases throughout the rev range and whereas the sound seemed to flatten out after 5,000 RPM with the stock setup, this system screams. Amazingly, the car is quieter inside the cabin than the initial setup I described above. Now on to the track key. When the full track key program kicks in and the idle changes over, the car becomes an absolute monster. The idle is amplified much greater than it was initially and just sitting there, the sound coming out of the pipes and side exhaust is just..."wow." Sounds so mean. I couldn't help but smile and think "this is going to be fun." Throughout the entire rev range, the exhaust is louder and more active (i.e. crackles, pops). Also, you can tell the tone got much deeper. Reminds me a lot of the 67 vettes with the 427's and sidepipes at idle. Some may be worried about drone, but this system's RSC technology delivers, and the car is markedly quieter on the inside, even though it is screaming outside. The delivery of american muscle on this product was extremely quick and the product's fit and finish is some of the best I've seen. This is on the pricier side of an axleback, but you get what you pay for, and I highly recommend this product for the Boss 302. Brings the motor to life. Also, I should mention that since I don't have any of the necessary tools to install this system, the Ford dealership was able to install it for a very resonable price. In addition, in the day or two after I had the exhaust installed, I had no less than 5 people stop me at lights to comment on the exhaust and/or give me a thumbs up.
