no drone (I have a vert too), sounds beautiful going through the gears,couldnt be happier.

my 2cents, Any louder then this, you will turn heads but with the comment of "wow thats annoyingly loud, or hes trying hard to get attention"

Everyone has their own preference, this is just from my experience and in my area.
YES!!

I assume loudness-wise that the three rank Loudmouth > Boom Tubes > Magnapacks? From reading all the posts on exhaust it's obvious it's an incredibly opinionated subject so it's pointless to ask which sounds "best". However, personally what I'm looking for is very loud and "raw" yet clean -- but not so loud that people are thinking "what the hell that's ridiculous " . Some exhausts I've heard are kind of low and muffled sounding almost reminiscent of a Civic fart-can -- obviously I don't want that!

So from what everything I've read it sounds like the Boom Tubes fit my tastes. However, can anyone comment about the build quality and fitment of the BTs? They are the cheapest of the three and I certainly don't want to bolt on a cheap piece of crap.

Any other recommendations are appreciated as well.
Hey man, come to Mustang Mania 5 in Maryland on Nov 1st (peep the sig), and you'll be able to hear my LoudMouths in person. [/shameless plug]

I haven't put them on yet because I have not been able to get home from school for fall break yet... [/agony]

I bought the LM's a month ago, and i'm so unbelievably excited to put them on in 2 days.

you are correct in the loudness ranking LM> BT > magnapacks. the quality and fitment of the BT's are not the best. i prefer the BT's the best for the price, sound and looks. the BT's are loud and clean, but the LM's are louder. you may want to consider MBRP muffler deletes too.

i think the MBRP deletes are a better alternative to the LM. if you arent going to do any more exhaust modding the LM or MBRP are great, but if you put on LT's and o/r mid pipe you probly want to go w/ BT's or magnapacks. another good and loud axle back is bassani race. just hope i didnt add more confusion.

About the Bassani Race...I hope you like drone.

I had them and when I was out of the drone range they were amazing (and with the window down) but when it droned (2K RPM) it felt like I had my head in a vice. Other than that they were great.

I'd pick boomtubes if I were to do the axle-back thing again most likely. I'd love to have Borla stingers but I hear they drone pretty bad. If this wasn't my DD I'd look over the drone issue.
