Flowmaster Exhaust

I am looking at getting these from AM. Flowmaster Force II Mustang Axle-Back Exhaust(2011-2013 V6) 817497 - Free Shipping!
I am just looking for an upgrade from the stock exhaust, and don't want to spend more than $500. Are these a good option?

Re: Flowmaster Exhaust

Flowmasters are an excellent choice! Hoping your supplier of choice has these in stock as they are very popular. I cant even get them from american Muscle...back ordered....sigh.

I originally bought this kit for my 2012 and sent them back. They pop like crazy went you lift off the throttle or rev it up. The sound is closer to a 350z which isn't necessarily bad but not what are mustang should sound like. I got the Magnaflow street series after and couldn't be happier. Deep v8 sound when you give it some gas. Quiet at cruising speed with absolutely no drone. And they look a lot better than Flowmaster tips.

Your comment only supports me even more to get the magnaflow street. Iv been really saying that is the one I really want to get. How is the sound when you step on it?

It sounds like a beast.. especially after 3000 rpm. I have people ask me all the time if it's a v8. It's not as low of a tone as the 5.0 but it does sound awesome. I do wish I could hear the competition series in person. Videos just don't do these exhausts justice. I would also recommend a Cai with any exhaust. I installed an Airaid cai also and throttle response is much quicker as well as the sound in the higher rpms

Just got back from the local muffler shop. The mechanic is gonna set me up with some flowmasters that he says will sound awesome. It is gonna cost around half of the ones I was looking at on AM, so I am happy.

So you really recommend them? Because I'm about to get those.

Love my flowmasters. Considering the price of all the other exhausts they were a steal. Nice deep rumble. None of my friends can believe that a v6 mustang can sound like it does. Definitely would recommend them to anyone.

Absolutely. I much prefer the sound of these than any other exhaust. Like I said the only other system I would buy is the Magna flow competition series if I could listen to it in person first

---------- Post added at 05:11 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:08 PM ----------

If you do and custom flowmaster system it would prob sound really good too but that would no longer be bolt on. You'd have to weld hangers and everything on just right to get it to line up straight. A 40 series Delta flow would be good. The axle back kit that is bolt on is just an set of 60 series mufflers that are far too quiet for a performance exhaust Imo

I have the Mag Comps. Got them for $200 used, and they are nasty.

No popping or rice, very deep down low and a nice roar when you step on it!

I think I remember you having the twin double exhaust, do u think there is a different sound between yours and the normal competition?

Yeah, I love em. I love the sound of magnaflows. IMO it's one of the best sounding exhausts, especially for a 6er if you want a nice deep sound. I liked the sound of the street series too but wanted loud and quad tips! Probably my favorite mod on my car.

Yeah, I got the quad tips. I've got a friend with the regular tip version. Haven't heard his car in a while but from what I remember, mine might be slightly deeper and louder. Very small difference though if anything. Might have to put our cars side by side and do a comparison. But I do have a CAI and he doesn't so that might make a difference?

I'll try to post some vids of mine today. Pretty low rumble when you crank it and nice rolling "gurgle" at idle. Bad thing is that you either need to be in person or have a good mic to pick up the low end.

I had an oem single stripe. Like the AM Project car but thicker. Also some louvers, hood scoop, and black Falken rims. I plan on finishing painting my calipers tomorrow

---------- Post added at 10:24 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:18 AM ----------

Real carefull on the stripes bro. It took me about 8 hours to install. Its not easy specially in winter. Make sure to have a squeegee and make the formula right. Wet is easier. I tried it with water, alcohol, and real little hand soap and it sticked instantly with alot of air bubbles. To take it off was a hassle. Then I added more soap to the mixture and it worked better. I was able to slide the stripe and fix the errors.

It really isn't bad once it gets settled in. When they were newly installed, it was loud as hell, but they mellow a bit. Really just depends on the RPM. I need to match up revs to decibels, but it's not bad when I am driving 65-70 with my 3.73s. I have the Premium package; so, I can still use SYNC and talk on the phone.

It's definitely "always on" though.

+1 They are always on, that's for sure. But you can still use the sync, phone and listen to the radio np.

That's what scares me is they are always on. I always want a little more sound in the cabin.
