I did it about a month ago, $90 at midas. I have the Roush AB and it sounds sick on cold start and even better up to about 3500RPM and then it turns into rasp city, loud as **** though.

$100. I have lethal o/r x and gt500 AB's. It sounds soooo sexy now. Definitely worth it in my opinion. No rasp at all, just sounds less restricted...now she can breeeaaathee.

I had the roush but swapped them with the gt500s after I removed my cats...it was too damn loud and drew too much attention. It was just a matter of time before I got pulled over. Sounded sick under WOT but other than that just obnoxious, especially on the highway. They almost droned me to death lol.

Haha. I sold my roush and miss the hell out of them. But heard to many similar stories if that. I trade the roush for gt500's and now am about 80 short to buy the lethal o/r x. And I plan on getting my resonators deleted at the same time. Did you do the mid pipe install yourself. Or bring it somewhere.

I will join the two of you shortly selling the roush when I get rid of the cats. Mistake #1 noted.

But honestly not a bad mistake. I will say without having the xpipe on yet. I greatly miss the roush every single day. I had the roush for about 7 months and sold them for 300. So paid 150ish for a badass sound for 7 months.

Yea I did the mid pipe install myself. Header bolts were a pain in the *** so consider this a fair warning. It was an absolute ***** to get them off and my car was at about 23k miles. Less miles on your car should make it considerably easier I would assume. Just make sure you have a 3 ft extension and a breaker bar. And an extra set of hands wouldn't hurt.

Don't feel bad. I sold mine for $300 too. Got my lethal x for $170. Got my gt500's for $150 including a set of 2012 svt springs. Plus resonator delete at $100. But I'll tell you that my exhaust sounds mean as hell now. Makes me smile again like when I first put on my roush axle backs.
