Great work (on both the install write up and the videos).

Those sound AWESOME.

When I get the time, I will post better videos. Driving, inside and out. I bought the kit directly from Roush. I paid more then wilkinda did, my dealer quoted me like 850 to install. Forget that. It was 680 shipped to my door and it took a week to get there. The car totally sounds the way it looks now. Im taking it to the big Saturday night car show up in Scottsdale.

BTW, how is the sound inside at highway speeds, i.e, 70 mph? Did you have to retune the computer afterwards?

Thanks again for a super post. You got me thinking about putting a set in mine.

Joe
highway speed, in fifth, doesn't seem all that bad. like wilkinda had mentioned, you might see slight drone around 70. Nothing like what a flowmaster sounds like at that speed. No retune. I dont really think it has done much except free up some exhaust flow. Ill be adding a drop in K&N and ill ride with that till i can convince the CEO (my wife) that headers and a bama tune are the way to go. Im thinking of doing the FRPP X-pipe too. You have to trim some of the mid pipe, but it looks easy enough to accomplish.
Ill get some better videos and post them in here when i get a chance. Probably tomorrow.

Sick sounding man true muscle car Im thinking of doing the Roush Exhaust like you did or do the FRPP Stingers! I wonder which one flows better and frees up the exhaust the most? Eithier MORE VIDS LOL! We crave that sound gives us more ideas about our 10's!

Awesome videos, awesome write up. In your last video, I'm absolutely drooling at 2:35

I only wish you did an in car comparison of before and after. Your current sound seems perfect, and I'm sure it's a bit louder than stock
