Pertty Derned Sweet...
I ordered 'em after a long thought process. Have the SCT tuner, using the 93 octane tune and JLT CAI on my '08 GT. Ordered the polished Violators. Arrived quick as is usual for AM. Not hard to install. Crawled under the car, and I didn't even need the jack stands. Ripped the Ford $h!+ off, and planted the Pypes system in about an hour. Had to lossen the clamp and slide one muffler back to make them both match. Didn't need the additional hangers. If you have any mechanical ability, this install is NOT difficult. Started her up. Not loud enough to annoy the neighbors at idle, but sounds great when you're cruising. Won't draw too much attention to you, but really makes the 'Stang feel like a proper 'Stang. When you get on it, it sounds great, and really took away that last bit of restricted flow feeling that the stock cans gave you. She feels nice and even all the way through the rev range now. I'm sure there's lots of nice axle back systems to purchase, but this one's definitely not something you'll regret, at least if you're not trying to be the loudest guy (or gal) on the block. The looks are spectacular, BTW. It's probably worth the few extra bucks for the polished ones.
