Make Your Mustang Sound Like a Battlecat
After doing a lot of research, I settled on this exhaust kit for my new 2015 GT. In the past, I've had Flowmaster, Borla, Roush, and Pypes kits on my cars. By far, this kit is my favorite.
This SW system has a very smooth note. It's loud, but not as loud as a Pypes Pipe Bomb kit but louder than most Roush and Borla systems. It is comparable in loudness to a full catback Flowmaster Outlaw... but it is a loud that isn't offensive... a lot like a great song. It sounds great loud.
The sound is refined. Not too high, not raspy at all. It's almost harmonic at low to mid RPM ranges. ZERO interior exhaust drone anywhere in the RPM range. The pitch is low-to midrange at slow acceleration and sounds loud and aggressive during high load, high RPM operation.
To describe the overall effect, the car sounds intimidating. When the car winds up, it sounds like a screaming demon... but when you shift, there's a pause where the car growls like a sabretoothed tiger. De-acceleration against a high gear also produces that nice, intimidating growl for when you need to scare a Camaro off the road.
The fit went well, taking the shop only 30 minutes to install. I opted to have the exhaust welded in place rather than use the factory provided clamps for no other reason than personal preference. The stainless steel looks great and the tips were packaged well and were not scuffed or scratched during shipping.
Out of any exhaust kit I've owned, this one takes the cake. It's loud when it needs to be, but won't wake the neighbors if you need to sneak into the garage at 2 am. The exhaust note is unique and your friends (or competition) won't readily know what you have... but, I'll just say what a teenage girl said to me out the passenger side of her window right after I pulled out of the shop today, "Oh god that thing sounds sick!" I agree... 100x over.
