Well worth the money spent. Great sound. After the install finished my Dad took the keys from me and you could hear it the whole time he drove around the block. If you are deciding if you should purchase this exhaust set be aware they are loud.Helpful (2)

Fast and Loud
First of all, the exhaust took over 1 mo to arrive even though it was listed as in stock. AM staff were friendly but not very informative about the delay. However, it finally showed up and looked good. Mufflers are stamped “Ford Performance by Borla” with “Ford Racing” visable on top of the tips. The install took a few hours with a lift (I wouldn’t try it with jack stands). I’m a moderately experienced amateur mechanic and It was pretty straightforward with all necessary parts. The pipe diameter is large compared to stock and a tight fit in places. Some bending of the muffler hangers was necessary for proper alignment. Finally, the sound: Its LOUD. Very deep and not raspy. There is a definate drone around 2000 RPM. Its actually quieter at 2500-4000 RPM. Stock Mustangs are way too quiet, but I was used to that. So, I was a bit taken back on initial cold start. The system totally changes the character of the car. But after 2 weeks, I’m still really digging it (probably not my neighbors in the morning, though, and the car is no longer stealthy).Helpful (5)

Fitment is not that great
Sounds great, but every time I hit a bump the exhaust hits under the car. I've taken the car to two different exhaust shops and over the last 4 months and neither shop could position the over the axle pipe to where it doesn't hit either the spare tire well or the rear end housing. Other than that, I love it! I had a performance shop install this initially while the installed my lowering springs and panhard bar. When they couldn't maneuver the piping so that it doesn't hit, I took to one exhaust shop and they had to reposition an exhaust hanger. It was still hitting under the car so I took it back to the performance shop and they had me take it another exhaust shop and they spent almost 3hrs cutting and welding the exhaust because they were unable to maneuver the piping to where it wouldn't hit under the car. When they were finished this time it did great for a few weeks, then it started hitting under the car again. It still hits under the car now and I'm considering purchasing a catback from kooks to go along with my kooks longtubes/xpipe.Helpful (9)

Took me and a buddy about 3 hours to do in front of the house on jack stands. Everything fit great but the muffler hangers had to be tweaked a bit to line up in the bumper openings. But I love the sound with the x-pipe, definitely gets noticed driving around town.Helpful (10)

Perfect compliment to the GT500!
This FRPP catback is the way to go for your GT500! I've owned a Roush Stage 3 and that exhaust was too much of an attraction. This kit has the perfect balance of "pure business" when either in low or high revs... 100 satisfied, and American Muscle was on point with their shipping and communication! Thanks fellas...Helpful (9)

Very deep note
Good product. Exhaust note is very deep, not too loud for cruising around town but is plenty loud at WOT. Make sure if using jack stands you can get a minimum of 24" as the over axle pipes need all the space you can get to get the stock pipes off and new ones one. Excellent improvement over simply axle backs for my supercharged stang as it feels less restricted when accelerating. Overall very happy. I installed this by myself hence a little extra time to install.Helpful (9)

Ford Racing Catback
This is not a stealthy exhaust system. You will get noticed. However the sounds emitted are glorious! Steven McQueen would be envious. At idle and low rpm it is VERY deep and baritone. Rev it up to about 3,500-4000, back off, and it cackles and pops. Above 4,000 it smooths out and gets more mellow. No drone at any rpm, but it does growl at certain speeds, like 60-70 mph. I did have an issue with getting the tailpipes to line up/match correctly. Oh, and you will need to loosen/lower the cross brace between trailing arms -- it's the ONLY way to get tailpipes and mufflers on.Helpful (9)

Great system, Loud and Nice Fit!
First off, be prepared to work a little getting your old set off. The bolts on mine were upside down at the cat and Rusted up, after messing with it for a while I ended up cutting the clamps off. You'll need one set from your old system, so save the ones at your muffler, which were much easier to get off. Had to jack the car up as high as my floor jack would go (about 2 feet), so if you have access to a lift, use it. Once I got the old set off, the new one went in quick. I followed the instructions and left everything loose until I had the tips exactly where I wanted them. I then had help holding them in place while tightening everything down. I couldn't be happier with the loud rumble this system makes. I'll just say if you don't want loud, this set-up is not for you.Helpful (10)
Which headers with a catalytic converter would your recommend with this exhaust?
The brand headers would be a personal preference. If you wanted to stay within a certain budget, we would recommend the BBK headers and required shorty mid pipe but if you wanted the best system out there for your Mustang, that would be the Kooks brand.
How does this system compare to the volume of the Borla ATAK or the Flowmaster Outlaw?
This is a loud raspy, race car growl. The Borla systems are known for more of a deeper classic sound versus this higher, louder sound.
Will this fit with the long tube headers you sell. Like maybe pipes
The Ford Performance Cat-Back Exhaust will not be compatible with long tube headers.
Are there any sound clips of these in action?
At this time, we do not have an exhaust video of the Ford Performance Cat-Back Exhaust. We are working to get videos for all our products, so keep checking back to our site!
Will the Kook Catted mid pipe bolt to this exhaust. I am installing Kook 1 7/8 stainless long tubes and catted mid pipe and i already have this exhaust. Does anyone no if this combination will work?
Hi, This Cat Back system will not work with a Kooks mid pipe because this system has a 3in connection and X-pipe the Kooks mid pipe is a 2.75in OEM connection i suggest using the Kooks Performance Cat-Back Exhaust. Here is the link http://www.americanmuscle.com/kooks-catback-1114gt.html
The Ford Performance Cat Back Exhaust will work with the Stainless Work 1 7/8" headers as long as you purchase the proper adapter pipes.
The 3 inch Ford Performance Cat Back Exhaust will decrease back pressure and allow for more fuel and air in the combustion cylinder, without being restricted by the exhaust. The exhaust with should not sacrifice hp/tq in the higher rpm. If your Mustang is stock or lightly modified, this exhaust may reduce back pressure so significantly that power could be lost.
