GT 500 Muffler Upgrade

I'm seriously thinking about switching my stock mufflers on the '14 GT to the Ford Racing GT 500 kit. Heard they sound great and I got a deal for $320 delivered. Any thoughts?

I did it last month and it's totally worth it. Good balance of tone and loudness.

Did you delete the resonators or just kept them as is in the stock pipes?

Ok..GT 500 axlebacks got put on today. They look cooler but the sound seems just a bit throttier. I guess I was expecting more roar. Considering removing the resonators. Any thoughts.

Removing the resonators will make it only slightly louder. The GT500's are not known to be very loud so I'm not sure what you were expecting.

Yes..I'm looking for louder but not droaning or wake the neighbors loud. Resonators delete might be just enough.
