Pulled the trigger on Roush Axlebacks!

Finally got around to the decision and wondering if the install is an easy DIY or should I get a shop to do it. Also will this exhaust do anything other than sound for me? Like affect a tune that I get down the road?

Pulled the trigger on Roush Axlebacks!

If you have ramps, youtube, and basic tools you should be able to do it yourself. Or you can be lazy like me and pay the shop to do it.

Edit: I hope you did your homework on how they sound. They are pretty aggressive. I love mine but I can see how so many people don't like it. Update us after the install.

Lucky I have a friend who owns a lift so I just lifted my car up. It's an easy hour install. If you don't have ramps/lift/jack and jack stands you can do it while it's on the ground. May be a little harder but it's possible. Waste of money if you pay a shop to install it, to be honest.

I have a friend who says he's got some jacks but where would I want to push up on the car from with them?

Was an easy install just put the car on ramps. The worst part is removing the old ones as the rubber brackets are quite tough! But you'll love it! Click image for larger version

Congrats! Had mine for almost 2 years and love them! But unfortunately they are just for sound and won't change anything performance wise.

Quack-Congratulations, you're going to love them! Hands down they're one of the best systems out there be it V6 or GT. The install in my opinion is a piece of cake and shouldn't take any longer than an hour. As per performance gains this exhaust is a muffler replacement and due to the airflow being right at the rear of the vehicle it would not require any type of Tune Let me know if you have any questions and I'm here to help!

My wife has a 2014 Roush RS, which came with the Roush axle-backs. At first we loved how aggressive they were... but after two months of driving we couldn't stand the drone anymore and since we take her car when we go out (better MPG than my Raptor lol) I made the executive decision to ditch them in favor of Corsa axle backs.

The Corsa's sound so much better IMHO and the tips are actually slanted to fit the body lines versus the Roush which looked tacky and stuck out too far from the side profile.

I've had mine for 2 weeks and about 400 miles. The drone was noticeable at first but is now nearly non-existent.

It odd how certain frequencies like drone or rasp affect different people.

It is certainly not my first aftermarket exhaust and I was not inclined to swap it at first since I know that exhaust sound can change as it breaks in... but after 2 months and 2k miles enough was enough. If it was just a toy I probably wouldn't care, but as her DD and a car I drive frequently it just got to be too annoying. I found myself driving on the highway in 5th gear just to get the RPMs up and make the drone less severe.

Gotcha too bad they had so much done. I'm glad the ones I have on the GT don't do that.

They really are not bad at all, as someone pointed out exhausts are subjective. They clearly weren't the right exhaust for him/her.

They are not bad, they are just terrible lol i sold mines after 3 months lol. They were making so much drone that the whole interior of the car vibrated like a 7 years old truck.

Vibrated? 2 years over here, no "vibrations". Maybe your car was built on a Monday lol.

No vibrations here either. I'm 3 weeks into mine. They are nice and settled down after about 500 miles.

Not everyone is subjective to drone and things like that, i know a lot of people that have sold them because of that.

Personally when I was axelback searching I finally decided youtube, pic weren't going to help me decide.
Went to mustang week 14 3 months after getting my car and spoke to owners I could find of ones I was interested in. Talked to maybe 8 guys with stock cars, with just axelbacks 6 had roush 3 told me they are planning to remove nvh and drone complaints. Other 3 said basically to new hoping they will break in. Went with gt500 after hearing and seeing 50k mile ones and various other brands from 1 to 12k miles that looked 10 years old.

I don't know nor can I speak for other people but when I first installed my Roush exhaust it was loud and **** and drone was horrible. Didn't sound good either. After about 100-200 miles later, the drone almost if not completely left (as long as you leave the RPMs bellow 1500) and the sound deepened and mellowed out.
