I installed a set of flowmaster hushpower axlebacks on my 5.0. They sound good, but I wanted to increase the volume a little. These stock are truly "hush"powers...I would roll my windows down to hear them, and they would pur, but that was about it...I came from a 2001 GT with o/r x-pipe and flows super 44, but I was a little dissapointed...then I got my resonators removed. This just made them sound like a glasspack.
If you want a good/calm sounding muffler that is really deep, but not loud, the hushpowers are great, but don't get them if you like to hear your car roar once in a while.
I ended up getting a Borla s-type after going through all of this and it is nothing short of incredible. I have the axlebacks installed and am waiting for the x-pipe/over-the-axle pipes to come in to finish the catback up. I didn't think the flowmasters droned much, until I installed the borla s-types...it is sooooo much quieter (no drone) at 1700-2000 rpms now.
I am going to try to sell my Flowmaster Hushpower sooner or later.
