If you've got some cash, Corsa Xtremes are pretty much the best hands down IMO.

the hardest part was getting the stock mufflers off because of little room, but probably a 1.5 hours at the most, very easy. It was my first mod and I did it when I was 16 with very little experience

Borlas suck imo.opinion varies but they just don't sound the same like it did with the new edge stangs.pype bombs w/catted mid pipe,slps,mid mufflers,or just buy some m80s and mid mount them.even the the roush cb sounds badass

Huh, Pypes has always been my least favorite if I had to name one, they're okay they're just cheap okay sounding, nothing special to me. Weird how we have opposite opinions.

Oh and we have the same car and color! 2010 GTs ftw

I have an 07 GT with Corsa extreme axle back with pypes H/F cats and ford racing headers. I have JLT3 intake BBK 62mm throttle body excell coils SCT tuner Shelby short throw stage 3 clutch ford racing intake manifold and mutha thumper comp cams slight port with polished heads ( got to find a good shop to do it) and I'm running a 92 octane tune with a 50 shot of nitrous .And I'm running ford racing 355 gears. Total that I spent with me installing all bit cams and gears was a little over 5K and I love the way my care runs and drives best advice is to look around and really see what you like and how you want your car to run. Hope this helps as you can see some mods and the cost to do them. Any specific questions PM me. Good luck with your car and build.
