A factory axleback muffler delete such as the pypes pipe-bomb or flowmaster outlaws will make a HUGE difference in sound. The volume will increase significantly with just this mod. The muffler...

Yeah, good call. I saw your join date as 2011, and mistakenly thought that for the car that is being talked about.

FWIW, resonators will remove rasp and drone inside the car. However, I don't...

I was referring to a set of take off wheels. I don't think anybody would expect to spend $3G on winter wheels/tires that will get scratched, chipped, and pitted from winter driving. Which is...

If your '12 pipes do not have resonators then maybe the previous owner put on aftermarket exhaust. That is if you didn't buy the car brand-new?

It sounds to me that you have a bent axle. Since the squeak didn't go away with new brakes that is the only thing left. I had the exact same issue that you are describing on my first mustang. ...

I agree. The outlaws are pretty much a straight through pipe. Even on the 4.6 they don't have the "flowmaster" sound that people are used to.

Also, I wasn't the biggest fan of the sound with...
