Wow, great video and sound. When you did the burn out, the traction control was off, right? I haven't done a full peel out yet and haven't played with the traction control yet.

Outstanding! Wilkinda already had me convinced... my Roush exhaust is on the way (will replace my Flowmaster American Thunder). But thanks for the vids Xcelsius! Now I'm even more pumped for that exhaust.

I did turn it off. I got fat fingered and switched it to sport then back on... you can see me button mashing just before the small burnout. It was Sunday and I was still in the neighborhood, so I didn't want to get carried away.

Just so you guys know, I am ordering the same exhaust kit for mine. Dealer cost is 439.99 plus 65.00 shipping. That what Roush sells it to the Ford dealers for!

BINGO!!! I had my dealer order it and it was the $439 and the since it was shipped to the dealer with the other orders no shipping cost. I used the shipping cost savings to have the dealer install it....

Just got my tracking # for mine. I already have the car in the air, old exhaust out. I can't wait to hear that sweet sound of my own!

Great price and results

My respect to anyone that adds to the knowledge collective with detailed DIY, well done

Note that control arms are not the spot of choice for jack stands ... any reason why we wouldn't want to support on the solid axle?

If you support the car on the axle, you will see a good amount of suspension compression and it will be hard remove the pipes from the car. I had to use the control arms since jack stands only go so high. I placed them near the rear mounting point to minimize the stress on the arm. Exhaust work with jack stands is not the best set up, but you do what you have to...
