Exhaust installation today!

Way different then stock, it's great. Much deeper, and loudish when you step on the gas, and a deep rumble while cruising.

Very true I just did mine. 1st exhaust install....very simple

You need buy yourself a tool set and start doing installs by yourself. have your dad help you. It's great bonding time and helps you to get to know your car. Axle back install is a easy it's only two bolts and some hangers took me about 20 mins without instructions

He claims his dad wouldn't let him do it. Said his dad was afraid they'd scrape or something like that

I'm being serious, I wanted to do the install, but dad wanted the dealer to do it, he was slightly concerned that if we did it, the intermediate pipe would scrape the ground, but he mainly wanted the dealer to do it so that If anything happened, he could say they installed it...

That's exactly what I said, he said said that because he wanted the dealer to do it, well, 2 1/2 hours and $180 later, for something that could be done on 10-20 minutes at home.

Yeah my car is pretty low and I can still get back there and change them out. Now if you are doing a mid pipe I would probably pay someone now. I put my whole exhaust on on my old car and the mid pipe was a pain

Who cares if he paid someone to install his exhaust it's his money not yours .... Just cause you own a Mustang doesn't make you a DIY 'ER or mechanically inclined ...to each his own ...

I installed my Full exhaust system with me and my buddy. BBK longtube headers, BBK off road midpipe, flowmaster catback. About to switch to Borla S types, and having an exhaust shop do that, but only because the piping is off and needs to be expanded to 3". The car is frickin loud with the outlaws, hence why I'm switching to Borla

Nothing wrong with what you paid. If it installed correctly and you like it, enjoy it. Normal price for this area. Cheap maybe. Rates here are $90/hr. or more. Two guys working on it & it is what it is.
ENJOY!!

$90 an hour? Dang. Then I got it for less, 2 1/2 hours should have been about $245 then. I still think it should have been at most $90 though, it shouldn't have taken more than an hour. Either way, it's on, and I like it, sounds like a real muscle car now.

Removing the stock axle back is harder than installing most after markets....due to the heavy *** brick of a muffler and that one bolt on each side mounting bracket that is hard to get to because the stock bricks leave no room...this is all assuming you have no lift laying on your back in the driveway

Flat rate is very different from actual work time. It probably took 2 1/2 hours cause the tech was busy with other cars. Once he got it in it probably took 10 minutes and he gets paid for an hour flat rate

removing the stock axle back doesn't require you to remove the bracket. One just needs to viualize how it went in there and move it the opposite way to take it out. All in all, it was under an hour on Jackstands and I was installing GT500s, which are every bit as big and bulky as the outgoing stockers. I trimmed about an inch off one of the hangers to make it a little easier to get in. One was ridiculously longer than needed.

I couldn't manage to get em back on the hangers without removing the bracket closer to the intermediate pipe...

For a new edge 4.6 I assume? A lot cheaper than a CAI for a new 5.0 litre

Flag time is flag time. They shouldn't have flagged more than an hour on that kind of job. If the flag time is an hour and they take 2 days, you only pay for an hour. The dealer suggested I get the Roush axle-back before I left their lot and they said it would be about $550 for parts and labor. The exhaust is $460, so that's exactly one hour of labor, less if you go by stealership labor prices. I personally think the dealer screwed you out of $90. It took my uncle and I about 1 hour of not knowing wtf we were doing, and 45 mins of actual work to get it installed.

At least your dad is better than mine. Let me spend $750 on a 355 for my/his Camaro, then when it showed up at the door I wasn't allowed to keep the block "in his garage" or put it in "his car". When it broke, it was my car. When I wanted to change something on/in the car or go somewhere, it was his car.

But, back to the matter at hand, you need to post a recording!
