Talking Ordered my Axle-backs

I just placed my order for my Magnaflow Street Axle-back Exhaust, from American Muscle.
I 'held off'-about as 'long as I could'-before throwing more money for mods, at the (already) most expensive Mustang I've ever owned..

What other exhausts did you consider? I was looking at the frpp catalog to start. I'm guessing most guys don't use the ford parts. Especially for programmers. I just like oem gear. Gives me the warm fuzzy safe feeling...lol.

I have magnaflow cat backs with my Kooks long tubes and H pipe and love the sound. I am not sure if I have the same model Magnaflows though. Mine are the ones that are the same size maybe a bit smaller than stock. I installed the entire exhaust myself, axle backs are a breeze to install. Enjoy!

Re: Ordered my Axle-backs

cherrybomb: yeah, I know. A 'penny saved is a penny earned'..I guess I just wanted to enjoy the car, stock?? for awhile?
vegasfergie: I did keep an eye out for the feedback from other members-on their choices/feedback. I did also evaluate sound clips on youtube. I have purchased FRPP product(s)-and been satisfied. I have had experiences, already with Magnaflow, Borla, Bassani, and SLP-on my previous Mustangs, Cobras and Lightnings. I thought the overall sound of the Magnaflow-and the fact that there won't be the dreaded resonance at highway speed-both influenced my decision, and I had great luck with their product on my `00 Lightning.
Dan: "it takes what it takes"-thanks!
mylilpony: Nope. My technician is installing them at the same, along with an oil change/tire rotation..
SpectorV: +1-and 'I know you're right'!

Re: Ordered my Axle-backs

The Magnaflow competition cat back exhaust has been nice, but I have a little bit of a drone issue, especially when my car is tuned, between 60-65 mph on the highway. The drone is not horrible by any means, but can get really agitating on a long trip. The 18 hour trip to NC was bad in spurts......luckily i didn't stay below 80 the majority of the trip =). It will be interesting to see how the axle back sounds.

I am all too familiar with the drone-no thanks. I selected this setup based on alot of research-and promise I will be 'filing' feedback to the forum. `Installation, this Thursday, the 10th!!

With the Borla s-type you will have a slight drone between 2500-3000 RPM in second going to third. Other than that the borlas sound so good

Gotcha covered.. Thursday morning install-along with tire rotation and oil/filter change. I will be immediately evaluating them on the highway for the 5-6 mile trip to work.. As soon as I get in front of this computer-I'll let everybody know.

Re: Ordered my Axle-backs

To all who have followed this thread :
I did the install this morning. I couldn't be happier! Modest increase in exhaust note, with no raspiness, no drone-and at idle, sounds like it should have sounded, when it came from Ford . Fit and finish, is first rate, all polished and weigh alot less!!!

OMG im jealous!!! lol. The Magnaflow is a good product for the mustang, and thank god there is no raspiness, are you going to be posting a vid on youtube or anything? I really am thinking about trading mine out for something else, but if an axle back is all i need well hell.

That's 'a litlle too easy' to really be happening/makes way too much sense.. They are getting close to that with their FRPP CAI + Tuner...
