Genuine Ford Quality, Highly Recommended!
I purchased this exhaust axle-back primarily because I wanted to retain that stock muffler look but with bigger exhaust tips and deeper sound. I actually considered just putting bigger tips on the stock exhaust as I think it sounds great stock with my cold air intake and tune. However, after reading many online reviews and contemplating this product purchase for months, I finally bit the bullet (or should I say Bullitt!) and bought it! The great thing about this system is that it retains that stock look with the mufflers visible from behind; I always liked that look better than axle-backs that do not show any of the mufflers from behind. The mufflers look identical to the stock ones with the exception of the much nicer tips. Upon start-up it sounds basically the same as stock but when you rev it, it sounds deep and good. From what I have read online, the sound actually deepens after a few hundred miles of use. Unfortunately, I have not had an opportunity to road test it yet as my car is on jack stands awaiting the arrival of rear Power Slot rotors and Hawk ceramic pads from AM. Those should arrive early this coming week, so I can't wait to get the rear brake job done so that I can test her out. From reading online reviews and watching YouTube videos, I think she should sound pretty sweet! This axle-back is exactly what I wanted, high-quality fit and finish (as expected from Ford) that will be good on the car for years to come! The fact that this axle-back is also marketed to the 2007-2009 GT500 suggests to me that it is a great sounding exhaust system. It was easy to install and the fact that it is a Ford product made the fit exceptional, I was able to achieve that 2008-2009 Bullitt look that I was looking for. Watch some YouTube videos of the 2008-2009 Bullitt Mustang and I am convinced that you will sell yourself on purchasing this same system for your own Mustang! I highly recommend this product, as usual another quality product from AmericanMuscle.com!
