Your mustang will sound like a$$.

Edit: Why not just put an O/R midpipe on there (assuming you don't have to deal with inspections)... They're cheap, and you car's sound will be improved, even with the stock catback.

Idk I ran it off my O/R H for a day and it did not sound very good. Sure it was loud but that's it. I don't know how it would sound with a stock H(probably better). It didn't help that I had an exhaust leak from hell though[&:]

+1 for Hispanic "non-ricer" Mustang owners. I'm Puerto Rican/ Dominican

It won't hurt anything at all. Some say that the loss of back pressure will cause you to lose a tiny bit of torque but with the O/R pipe that should be enough back pressure. It'll be loud but that's about it; no real tone to it.
