Deep rumble, but not that loud
Ok, Let me start by saying I've owned three mustangs, all with different exhausts(Ford Racing, Flowmaster and Pypes)so I know what a good set up is supposed to sound like. I had a shop install this one for me. These guys are good at what they do and they did a great job. They STILL had issues getting it fitted correctly. Some parts were loose, some were too tight. They had to spot-weld the tips in place so they wouldn't move on their own. After all that It cost me $200 for the install. That's not too bad. The sound is nice, very much a traditional Mustang voice.I have a factory H pipe and still have the cats in place. It's not as loud as the old Flowmaster 40's I replaced(one muffler had a hole in it) but it's richer, deeper and more noticeable at idle. More Bass and not as tinny as the Flo's. the sound has character in spades. The only thing I don't like is that it seems to amplify the sound of the mechanics in the engine. I swear I hear valves tapping when I stand behind the the tail pipes. (a crisp popping sound, almost like a crackle). I will say that if you're looking to cam your engine, this is the exhaust you want. It would sound amazing with a mild cam installed. There is little to no drone over 2500 RPM. I can actually hear passengers in the car now. The old flo's would drown out everything. the 3.5" pipes look tough hanging below the bumper. Very big and chunky. Much better than the old school 2" chrome straws I had before. I'm hoping the crackel will work it's self out over time and is just part of the break in. Maybe I'll just cam the engine and not worry about it. I was expecting more volume from this setup and that's kind of a let down. I'm thinking of adding long tube headers and maybe an off-road H pipe to get it louder. All in all it's a nice set up and a good value once you get past the fitment issues. I wanted a unique sound and that's what I got. Now I just need to make it louder!
