I don't think they have a dedicated system yet, as there is nothing listed on thier website, but i have see a youtube video of a '11 with the A/T classic's, and it sounded great! In fact, i was going to go with the Kooks system but after hearing that A/T system, i'm hooked! Those Corsa's pretty good on youtube, but i'm sure everything sounds better in real life than on my damn laptop...

Another thing, i haven't seen any dyno numbers from anything but the magnaflows. I heard word that when Ford developed the engine and exhaust system, it was so efficient that an aftermarket exhaust wouldn't produce the same hp numbers as you would see on older models (for instance, the stock headers - thank you FORD!)

Steeda makes an axle-back, too, for around six and change. Ouch!

Just checked out the Roush website a few days ago and found that they've completed their axle-back. They have sound clips...sounds good but I'd love to hear it in person. The dealership I bought mine at sold Roush 427s and man i do love that sound. Hopefully the headers we have don't make it too raspy a note

I installed the GT 500 axle backs. They sound good. They are not loud at idle and no drone. They are louder than stock when driving. Pretty reasonable price wise also. The thing I liked about the mufflers, is they don't have the raspy sound like a lot of other kits do. The thing about exhaust is, it really comes down to personal preference.

I ordered my Roush axle back over a week ago, from Stage 3 Motorsports on ebay for $360.00 to my door. But with the freak storms here in Tx. they haven't come yet. Fed Ex shows delivery today on a Saturday. Can't Wait to get them and put them on, even in the snow. Hope they sound just as good or better in person. Let ya'll know after the install what I think.

Man these do sound better in person. Wife didn't even hear me pull in the driveway. At crusing speed you barely even hear them. Get on it and it's talking to you! Took about 45 minutes to take the old ones off and install new ones. Great bang for the money and seems like it has more power. though who can complain with the new 5.0
