Well, it says it doesnt require any unique calibration, so I would say no tune. Although the tune would help it reach it's full potential.

I'm not looking to gain a bunch of hp. Like I said earlier in this thread the car is plenty fast for me. I just want a great sound.

Good deal,You will be much happier down the road when you get a tune to go along with it.

Borla S Type definately sounds different than Roush. Personally I like the Borla better. Although, Roush is priced right and will sell more product because of it. Smart move Jack!!!

Re: How to get the best sound out of my 5.0?

I have magnaflow streets and o/r x pipe. I like it.

Roush sounds like crap compared to most of the others.

Sounds good to me, but I don't think any exhaust system on a mustang sounds bad at all.

It sounds really good, I'm sure the videos don't prove it justice. Is there any droaning? I know the Borlas don't have any, but I dont know about the Roush. I don't care about how much it costs I just want the sound to be outside only, if I wanna hear the exhaust I'll just crack the windows.

I have the chambered Magnaflows. I think they are the "street" ones. It is quiet cruising around but gets pretty loud up top. The chambered borlas sound amazing, but they are kind of pricey.

Re: How to get the best sound out of my 5.0?

Get the Roush axle back system. I listened to the online clips and decided to go with them. I installed them earlier this week. They sound great. It really sounds mean now. I find myself now having to drive with the windows down to fully appreciate the sound. You can definately hear it with the windows up but its the best with them down, especially when you go under a bridge overpass and rev it a little. The roush have a nice bark to them when you blip the throttle. No drone cruising either. The sound clips on their website are ok but they don't do it real justice. Hearing them on the car in person is much better.

One the best I have heard if not the best is a off road H pipe with GT500 mufflers. Buddy has went threw the Hushpowers/roush and magnaflow cat back. He now has the off road H and GT500 mufflers. Sounds the best by far.

I have the GT500 mufflers with the stock H pipe. Sounds great. I'm going to have the H pipe replaced with a FRPP X pipe next month. It's probably good for an extra 5 to 10 hp.

Is the FRPP X off road? No Cats? The off roads form Lethal/BBr have seen gains of 10-15whp. That cats are really restrictive.

sound is always the opinion of those buying it, but get a good quality product that wont rust out (stainless steel etc like Borla)

Nice! I've been wondering what mufflers to put on an offroad h... Is it ridiculously loud? Seems like those are whet enough to sound about as loud deletes on a stock setup
