I've seen gts with borla on them and the customer never complained of power loss. I'm just wanting you to somehow justify that a pretty much factory gt can lose 43hp because of a borla exhaust. That's all. Not trying to say you don't know anything. Just simply saying it makes no sense whatsoever to me

I don't believe he meant because it was Borla, more so that it was a 3" system.

Even with a 3imch system I haven't heard of that kinda loss. If it was a common problem I'm sure I would hear a lot more quite mustangs driving around in fear of losing power. I just personally don't see it being possible

It may depend on the setup as to why it was that big of a loss, yes it does seem kinda high. Can't remember which month it was but mmff did an article about exhausts on different size motors and had a very similar result.

I'd like to read that article. And thanks for your input. That's what I was wanting. Some evidence of this scenario happening to someone. If you can find the article let me know.

This wasn't directed at me, but here's my .02.

Unless you plan to do a lot more mods, or a SC or TC system, the 2.5" will serve your purpose at less expense.
My favorite, which a lot of people don't like, is the Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust.
There are many systems to choose from and most of the brand name systems will have sound files on their website.
I would start by checking out our Site Sponsors for a discount.

My .02, if you want sound, the 3 inch will resonate more with the increased pipe size but lose power.
If you want power ( a small gain you will probably not so much feel as "hear") is to go with 2.5.
This is what I experienced with my 5.0 ford truck with 3'' headers to 3'' custom h to 3'' flowmaster 40's. Sounded AWESOME but went nowhere fast.
I was later told to go to at BIGGEST for the power I was putting out (stock motor) was 2.5''.
Hope this helps and good luck

Re: Exhaust backpressure
