WOW!!! (Use the Scavenger X-Pipe also LOL!!!
So....Disclaimer, most of what I say and compare in my review will be based on 2011 GT w/Corsa Perfomance exhaust Vs. my current 17 GT w/Flowmaster.
On to what my thoughts are......YOU CAN NOT GO WRONG WITH THESE!!!!! These are truly amazing, I was worried about what I was going to get or end up with but, truly a bang for the buck! It is a different note and overall sound to my 11 GT, and I truly appreciate that it is different. I have heard the Corsa system on the s550's and that is what I was going to save for because I had such a great experience with my s197, but man I tell you that these Flowmaster satisfy my inner child and my man child LOL. Time will tell, but I don't have a reason at this moment to dig more money out of my pocket or save my money for another or more expensive system. I wish I could put a sound clip on here, but WOW WOW WOW for the $419 I have 0 regrets or doubts.
I can not speak to what the performance difference between this axle-back, and other axle-backs without actually using them and doing an actual performance test. I can say that my 17 s550 sounds and runs great.
Install - About an hour on a lift, I literally took the OEM exhaust off starting with the resonator straight back, one large section, and then installed the Scavenger X-Pipe (I ended up liking the factory clamps at the front of the resonator better than the was supplied with the X-Pipe.), I then installed the DS and PS axle-backs made a couple of adjustments to make sure they exited equal distance, and VOILA! done. At worse I would add 30 minutes if I was using just a jack system, and if your undercarriage has seen any heavy rain or grime.
Thank you AM for having such a great variety, and for always making information available for the different products, and thank you FLOWMASTER for great great products!!!
Again, I am not hating on other systems, I have used several on my different stangs. - Corsa, FLOWMASTER, Magna, ROUSH, Borla, etc.....
***Disclaimer I am using this axle-back setup along with the Flowmaster Scavenger X-Pipe. Together it was under $700.00. Install was about an hour (I used a lift).***
