I heard Xcelsius' GT, didn't know it was him, at the pavillions and it does sound mean.
I planned on getting the Roush exhaust after hearing it on the net but after hearing it in person it I definately have to get it.

Thanks. I think I should be heading out there this weekend if the weather is nice enough. Did you bring your car? I only remember seeing a convertible with your color a couple weeks ago.

Yeah but I parked far away as we were not planning on staying there that long. So far it looks like it will be nice this weekend.

Just got my roush exhaust on. It freaking sounds amazing. I love it ....money well spent. When i first started it i thought it would be a little louder but the resonators must have broken in on the ride home from work. It sounds louder than it did when i first started it. good luck with your install. It was very easy but i was using a lift. I used a ratching 13mm gearwrench on a couple of the hanger bolts because they are a little tight to get at. It only took me roughly an hour but i was fine tuning the fitment of the exhaust tips in the bumper.

Just got my exhaust on. YES its Awesome. The sound clips dont do it justice. I put mine on using floor jacks in the rear. I got the drivers side on without problems, but could not get the passenger side mid pipe to clear over the axle. I had to remove the driveshaft from pinion side to give me the room I needed. Not a big deal. I love the burbble on decel.

Glad you are all satisfied with the exhaust. I would have hated to recommend it and then have ya not like it.

no not really, I thought maybe he wasnt aware that there were videos and pics of this out there already thats all. Some people dont read through the entire post. I wouldnt mind taking video but its been raining here for the past 2 days. I havent even been able to enjoy my exhaust with the windows down yet.

What are you talking about? Those are great pictures! Gives me a much better idea of how they would look on mine. From the photos it looks like there is a crossover pipe at the front. I was not aware that there was one. Wow. The weather is suppose to be crappy here too until Sunday afternoon. Can't wait to hear them in person on Monday on that Roush 427 at that dealer...

Thanks.

the stock GT exhaust has a H-pipe. You can get an X-pipe too from FRPP that requires some slight trimming of mid pipe length.

I am very impressed with the Mustang. I go back many years. When I bought my 1978 Z28 Camaro new, it was one of the best performance cars that year yet it had cast iron headers going into a Y pipe which went into one cat converter and then split into two resonators. And it was pretty quite. I had to add headers and dual exhaust myself. Now I own a car that has dual exhaust right from the factory and even includes a crossover. Good job Ford!
