No fitment issues and sounds great!
First off - there seems to be a lot of comments about fitment issues. I did not experience this with my install - 2007 GT w/Ford Racing supercharger. With only 20K summer driven miles, the old mufflers came off without any problem. NOTE: In the instructions it says you remove one bolt from the forward most mounting brackets, remove the bushing, and leave the bracket on - that's not possible, you need to remove both bolts and take the bracket out with the muffler. You can then bolt the bracket back on and install with it in place - these mufflers have a longer arm which makes it easy to slip into the forward most bracket. My Mustang was built late 2006 (purchased 12/2006), and it has the regular hangars, I was able to use them without issue. I have a lift, so installation was super easy - couple of hours - I can see where doing this on the ground would be a little more challenging just because of the angles and alignment adjustments. With that said, the exhaust sound: I tried to sneak these in without the wife noticing. I have several other muscle cars (69 GTO convertible, 70 Hemi 'Cuda, 70 Stingray) that I have Flowmasters on. She hates the drone in them and generally won't ride with me. Reading the reviews on these, I was hoping they would be quiet in the cabin and great sounding outside. As I had the Mustang on the lift, she showed up to wash her truck and asked what I was doing. I had to come clean and she wasn't too happy - she said if it sounds like the other cars inside she's not going to drive it (this is her car). Well, now the pressure was on. I made sure I didn't damage the old mufflers just in case I needed to put them back on and do the walk of shame... Fast forward - job complete, and I had her do the initial test drive. Amazingly, the sound in the cabin is not any different than what the factory level is at idle. On the street, normal driving, sounds strong but not obnoxious. So far, so good. She then punched it a few times and that is where this system shines - it sounds awesome. I knew we had a winner when she looked over and gave me a mischievous grin. All in all, she's very happy. While this are a bit pricey, the rear end appearance is quality and impressive. Absolutely no interior cabin drone. You won't be disappointed.
