Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Let me say that I am a compulsive shop-arounder. I finally decided to pull the trigger on this system after good reviews and a great deal.
How does it compare to other systems? When I went down to my shop to have it put in, there happened to be another 16 GT getting the Flowmaster Outlaws and the Ford racing X pipe put on. The MBRP's BLEW him out of the water on volume, and they only got louder after breaking them in. I routinely set off my garage mate's car alarm on a cold start. My girlfriend won't let me park behind her house because it "sounds like a jet engine." This turns heads all over.
Let me say a little something about the drone for a second. Yes, there is a drone from about 1600-1950 RPM. THAT SAID, a lot of the drone's presence will depend on your gearing. I have the GTPP, so 3.73 final drive. When I'm cruising on the highway, I am almost never turning in the drone zone. I'm always above it, even at a comfortable (but slow, very very slow) 68 mph. Around normal cruising (80......ish), not a chance I'll get any drone, turning too many rpm's. I suspect that a car with the 3.31 gearing will have drone issues closer to 65-68 mph, simply due to the final drive ratio and what you'll be turning in 6th at that speed.
Perfect fit, albeit the adjustable tips can be a bit of a pain. My right side was bent a little too far towards the center of the car and so my shop had to bend it slightly to clear the fender cutout.
Get this system if you want the famous burble at idle, want to hear every pop on a downshift, want to turn heads under normal acceleration, want to whip them around under heavy acceleration, and want to rip the space-time continuum at WOT.
Stop reading, stop researching. Get these pipes. You won't regret it.
