The Roush has a very deep muscular tone. It does crack a bit when you let off the throttle, that bothers some people but I think it sounds OK ... just something you get with free flowing exhaust when you lose that constant pressure. These videos are all my car, hope you enjoy them.

Edit: Yes - those are temporary tags. The car didn't make it 30 days before getting that terribad stock exhaust off!
