Default Axleback Exhaust

Alright so I'm looking into something simple. Because mainly I don't want to void my warranty..

My two choices as of right now I want it to be LOUD and beefy rumble as possible without having to remove my cats.

SLP Loudmouths or Flowmaster Outlaw.

I've saw nothing but good things on youtube of the flowmaster outlaw sounding mean as hell. To me the loudmouths aren't as loud.

Mac Boomtubes sound pretty good on an otherwise stock exhaust

Other than being too loud I loved mine. The drone with no cats and longtubes was way too loud. On a catted car it sounded sick

I can second the motion of Boom tubes sounding downright awesome on a otherwise stock exhaust. They are very aggressive and loud though. But I had no drone and no popping though. OP go with the boom tubes you won't be disappointed if you want loud.

I just put Loudmouths on last week and love them. Very nice aggressive sound when you get on it.

i have heard loud mouths on another GT and can honestly say they have more popping and crackling then the boom tubes. The boom tubes have virtually none of that. I have had flowmasters on my 02 GT and I hated them. Mucho drone.

I'm not a big fan of the popping and crackling.

It seems like no one on here says anything about the flowmaster outlaws..

Really??? Due to axle backs??? EPIC FAIL.

A CAI & tune won't void your warranty so an axleback certainly won't. Saying that an axleback will void your warranty is like saying that aftermarket floor mats can void your warranty.

I can see that we'll need to try getting you out of those panties and into some boxers.

I've found that a redneck's favorite (Flowmaster and Magnaflow) drone a lot and no one will talk about it.

outlaws aren't chambered so they shouldn't drone as bad from what I've read?

I've had SLP's for a while now on my 2007 and I love them, but they aren't for everyone. It completely depends on what kind of sound you are really looking for, you gotta be pretty specific.

The SLP's are pretty loud and sound really good IMO. If you are just doing axle-backs, that's my pick, otherwise Borla or some other non-chambered design.

I have the Borla touring. It didn't drone at all with the shorty headers and stock cats, but i do get a little drone since i added the hi-flow cats. Shelby Performance Parts had a killer deal on a catback system a couple of weeks ago for $399. That was a catback not just the axle back. Those usually go for $800.

Never once did i mention that axle backs would void my warranty.. So epic fail on your part. I was saying I wanted something simple like axle backs because I didn't want to do anything to my mid pipe or my cats because that would for sure void my warranty. I've unprogrammed my car and had warranty work done and they didn't say a thing.
