I have these installed on my 2008 GT. They sound amazing alone! I bought these with a Pypes H-Pipe. Along with a pair of Dynomax Bullets. I have not installed the hpipe or bullets yet. I was looking for a deep note and nice idle. These are it, BOOM TUBE! I can't imagine how this beast will sound with everything on it. 10/10Helpful (6)

Mac boom tubes review
I received the exhaust fairly quick and had no problems with the shipping. When I opened up the box the exhaust was packaged very well and was wrapped in bubble wrap. After taking off my old stock axle back I started to install the boom tubes. Install was very straight forward and I didn’t need instructions. (Good thing because there was no instructions packed with the boom tubes) the exhaust lined up well with the back bumper very well and took me less than an hour and a half to do. The tone is amazing, very deep and low rumble. Loud at WOT and quiet when you need to be. On a loud scale of 1-10 this would be a 7.5. It can be a little louder but 100 a good quality product. I bought these for a 2007 Mustang gt California special.Helpful (6)

I bought these mufflers looking for something that was as loud as straight pipes but without the annoying drone and obnoxiousness that comes with it. These mufflers absolutely were everything I was looking for. In low gears the car screams when you get on it but when your cruising down the road on a trip they sound no louder than stock. When you fire the car up it's noticeably deeper and more alive than stock. Plus the massive tip on this thing sets the rear end of the car off. As far as install goes they give you everything you need and it all lined up like it was supposed to. I'm not a mechanic by any means but the install walkthrough and videos that AM supplies make it like a walk in the park. A little muscle to get the old equipment off and pretty well go in reverse when you put the new ones on. Took me about an hr to hr an a half to get it all done. Would be easier if you jack the rear of the car up to move better but I didn't and still got it done. If your looking for a classic aggressive tone, Here it is!!Helpful (6)

Mac boom axle backs.
Unbelievable how awesome they sound. I've used other axle Backs from comprable companies but honestly could not get the right sound. Mac boom did itHelpful (5)

Stock system boom tubes
Wasn't looking for something deafening just an aggressive sound. This was perfect, there's no drone and people have certainly been turning their heads. Better deal than name brands with the same qualityHelpful (6)

Super easy install, fit like a glove with factory hangers. They sound great, not offensively loud but still give it a deeper, more aggressive tone with limited drone.Helpful (5)

Its not loud untill you put the gas down needs off road h pipe to be really loud but its a really good sounding exhaust i would recommendHelpful (5)
v6 dual exhaust? I have a 2008 grabber orange v6 with a single boom tube on it and I love the sound, so Ive decided to get duals. So I guess my question is can I justbuy the driver side one from AM instead of buying the axle back set?
Unfortunately, we don't have the dual axle-backs sold individually for each side. MAC direct might be able to work something out with you, but we only carry them as a pair.
How loud are these compared to the Pype Bomb Axle Back Exhaust?
The Pypes will have a more aggressive exhaust tone when compared to the MAC exhaust.
Has anybody tried the Mac booms with longtubes headers? Drone wise? I’m debating between this or the roush extreme with longtubes I heard the extreme with longtubes the drone goes away at 2k while on highway.
When comparing the MAC Boom and the Roush, the Roush typically lends less of a drone.
I have 3” exhaust on my 09 GT I was looking at the Mac Boom Tube have you got some way to put the 2.5 on the 3” like a reducer .

Will this axle back exhaust work with pypes true dual axle back kit?
Yes, this MAC Boom Tube Axle-Back Exhaust will work with the Pypes True Dual Exhaust X-pipe Kit.
The MAC Boom Tube Axle-Back Exhaust will not fit a V6 Mustang without additional modifications such as either a GT bumper, or trimming the V6 bumper, and GT style hangers, over axle pipes, and mid pipes.
We do not have a link to a video online, however, we do have a step-by-step installation guide for this MAC Boom Tube Axle-Back Exhaust. https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/40049-cust.pdf
They are listed as "straight through mufflers" So technically it's just an open pipe. As far as what will and will not pass inspection, that is something you would have to ask whoever does your inspections as we do not have that information on hand.
The MAC Boom Tube Axle-Back Exhaust (05-10 GT, GT500) is going to be a different shape and style exhaust tip. It will look slightly different out the back of your Mustang as well as having a slightly different tone than the SLP kit.
The MAC Boom Tube Axle-Back Exhaust (05-10 GT, GT500) will not produce any back pressure since this is a straight through pipe design. Your X pipe should provide you with enough back pressure, you will just want to have your car tuned properly and you can pick up some serious power without needing to add mufflers for more back pressure.
yes once you have a dual conversion, you can use any GT axle-back exhaust
