  • It might take a little hammering and bending but as long as the pipe diameters match up, then you should be fine. You might also have to hang your own brackets for the exhaust hangers though.

How much HP gain will I get with this axle-back exhaust if I already have a BAMA Tune and K&N Air Intake? Also, is this one of the best axle-back exhaust in terms of HP gain?

    Nice upgrade.

    I thought long and hard before deciding on purchasing the AT Classics. I read numerous reviews and watched every video I could find online. I can say I am happy with my choice. It took less two hours to install in my garage with a jack and a couple of jack stands. The hardest part was removing the stock mufflers and reaching a couple of the anchor point bolts along with aligning the tips. The larger outlets look great. And the sound...whoa the sound. They sound great at startup, deeper and louder that stock what a muscle car should sound like. Inside the volume is definately up compared to stock especally duing low rpm acceleration where I did notice some boom at first. It has lessened to a cleaner tone the more miles I've driven but it is still noticably louder than stock. Steady crusing at highway speeds is about as quiet as stock. I didnt see any mention of a power increase on the AM website. The Flowmaster website does include dyno graphs showing a Hp and torque increase. I have noticed a bit more power or maybe it just sounds faster:)

    Awesome

    Well I didn't buy them from here, got them from amazon. Since I buy a lot from here decided I'd put the review on here. Installation took me about 45 mins mainly because I didn't have the greatest car jack to use. But installation was easy none the less and I'm no mechanic. Bolted up nice and snug just like the stock ones. Sound was completely different. You can definitely hear that distinctive tone when you start it up and sounds amazing going through the gears ( I have an automatic). Sounds simply amazing. I definitely recommend this product. Best bang for your buck!!

    Easy Install=Amazing upgrade!

    I was prepared for this installation to take at least 2 hours. With the help of a friend, we were able to give my mustang a new rumble in about 45 minutes. Neither of use had dealt with exhaust installation prior to this evening, and this was as simple as it gets. I was afraid that there was going to be a drone while at normal highway and interstate speeds, but there has been neither. With the windows up at 70 miles per hour, it sounds like it did when it came from the factory. I am very pleased with the service and speed of delivery set up by American Muscle and I plan on doing much more in the near future.

    So Deep!

    Put these on in place of the flowmaster 60 series axle backs and man what a difference. Louder, deeper, throatier you name it. Have a bassani o/r x with it along with shorty headers and a steeda CAI. Car is a beast and turn heads everywhere i go no matter what gear you are in. True old school muscle car sound. Nothing like flowmaster.

    Louder than stock

    I really ended up liking these, for someone in CA with sound and muffler laws. These are a great upgrade. Now when it comes to install, once the old mufflers are off its a breeze but to take off the stock is a bit of a pain but it can be done. Overall good exhaust not to loud but not quiet.

    Great Sound!

    I purchased the Flowmaster American Thunder Classic exhaust just 2 days ago and it has already arrived and been installed. I would say that I am pretty mechanically challenged and it took me about 2 hours for the install. After the install, I am very impressed. When I stand behind my car, I can feel the bass of the exhaust rumble in my legs. I have no problem with not being able to hear inside my car or hearing my radio over the exhaust (although I do have the Shaker 1000). I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants the classic Flowmaster sound with some extra guts to it.

    Awesome upgrade!

    This was my first Flowmaster purchase and it did not disappoint! The part number was 817460. These mufflers make the the 2010 GT mustang sound like it should! Very impressive exhaust note. Cold start in the garage vibrates the walls! My 2010 Mustang GT has a manual transmission and these mufflers are a lot of fun! Love revving it up at stop lights or in traffic, definitely turns heads. At W.O.T. the car sounds like a jet. These mufflers do vibrate the car at idle! Feel them in the floorboards and the pedals! Reminds me of a '69 Mustang with a 351c. They have a strong exhaust note between 1800 to 2300 R.P.M. especially on the freeway! If you like it loud then these mufflers are for you! Install was super simple! If you can change a tire you can put these in! Took us less than an hour. OK now the cons. Since these are designed for 2005 to 2010 Mustang GT, the tip placement was more inboard and not centered in the cutouts on my 2010 GT. Not enough to bother me but it mite be a problem for others. Their is not enough adjustment in the factory brackets to get the to fit perfectly centered, at least on my car. Like I said earlier in the review they have a heavy exhaust note or drone between 1800 to 2300 R.P.M. At first it was really annoying but now I love it! To finish. I love them! Highly recommended! If you like it loud, obnoxious, head turning, popping and vibrating then these are the mufflers for you! Between my 2010 Mustang GT and these mufflers makes me feel like a kid again! Buy them you will not be disappointed!

    Wow,... What a difference

    First of all,.... I was amazed at the shipping/delivery. Can't promise this for everyone, but I placed my order with AM early one afternoon, and the FlowMasters were on the front porch the next afternoon! No problems with instalation at all, and that is with being very mechaniclly challenged, and having no lift or ramps. I had have to loosen the H pipe clamps after the mufflers were installed for the proper alignment, then of course tightening everything up again. The "sound clip" video does not do these mufflers justice. I know its hard to capture the sound on camera but thses are so much better in person. Strong, steady, aggessive sound during start-up, take offs, and shifting, but levels off for highway/interstate cruising. I am VERY pleased, with both these mufflers and AM !!

    Head Turners!

    I bought these for my wife's 09 GT convertible and i was concerned they might be a little too aggressive. After installing them and having a slight issue with the driver side muffler ( there is a bracket in the way and you cannot get the muffler hanger in without taking it off, i never heard anyone complain about it so it might just be a convertible only bracket) i was stunned about how it sounded at idle and revving it. Awesome sound. However, the 2k rpm drone in 5th gear on the highway is annoying enough to put in down in 4th to gain some sanity back. Again, this might only be a convertible issue seeing how a few reviewers said the 2k drone was no worse than stock. Sound awesome, but i would not consider putting them on a convertible.
