There quality built but too quiet for me out of all the borla exhausts I think the Borla atak is the best sounding on the new 5.0's. I personally have roush axle backs Borla is over priced for me. the sound and fit and finish of the roush's are fantastic and there stainless steel construction same as the borla's. I would suggest the roush!

You will get a wide variety of opinions, regarding this topic. I personally do not care for something "loud"/ raspy. The newest Mustang has better sound insullation-than all previous models, but you will also drive with the windows down. I have had a positive experience with the Magnaflows I installed. Just the right amount of mild growl, no interior raspiness, great note. Good luck.

Well I don't find the roush raspy at all. U said u wanted throaty and speaking of the magnaflows one of my friends has a full bolt on 5.0 and has the magna flows and he is trying to sell them so he can purchase roush since he heard my exhaust. Not that the magflo are a bad product just to me more comparable to slightly louder than stock mufflers. Its ur car though it's all in what u want

I agree with wnt2gofst if u looking for slightly louder than stock go with the gt500's. On the other hand I agree again the magflo's are alot quieter than I thought they would be. Same situation wit me one of my buddy's that is a full bolt on has the magflo's and he is ordering some roush and selling his magflo's cuz they are not loud enough. And he liked the fit and finish of the roush also.

Not the full cat back.. O/r bbk xpipe and then the axle backs.. The gt500s sound amazing with the o/r x.. But the hushpowers sound pretty good too.. A lot better than roush in IMO..

Ya that's just my opinion.. Heard all of them in person.. Majority of y'all love the roush but it's just not for me.. Lil higher pitched than I like.. I like the deep sound.. The roush sound a lil bit like a glass pack or turbo muffler TO ME.. And this is a redneck town and I hate glass packs lol.. But still looking forward to your vid... That's why we all got stangs to make them our own!!

I'll also say this.. There's not an exhaust out out there for these 5.0s that doesn't sound good.. It's all really personal preference and just some that I like MORE than others.. The roush doesn't sound bad at all I just like the hushpower and gt500s MORE.. Lol

Ya I had a friend take his Roush off and put GT500 on with his off road X pipe. Car sounded a lot better. Was really perfect set up.

He mentioned it was to raspy and had some drone with the X pipe and the Roush. That was what made me stay away from them.

Problems? What mean?

Go with some where that is known to have good tunes. Be it BBR/EVO/LETHAL/BAMA. All there tunes are really on the safe side. Some are better then other ones yes. But all are safe.

If worried about warranty work. Well a cat back and some suspension work will be all you want to do really.

Be aware of this TSP. Ford released it. Any engine issue and crap and they see have tune you are screwed. It is no longer up to the dealer as they report to corporate. GM is having the same issue.

---------- Post added at 07:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:39 PM ----------

Basically ford is going to denie any warranty work once they see a tune. It has happened to more then a few people. Simple stuff and dealer started job and then corporate told them nope. All engine work as well.

As mentioned Gm is doing the same thing now for all the issues they have had with lifters failing.

Also this is referred to as the BAMA TSP.

Some dealers like mine was cool at first till that came out. Now they are very hesitant to do stuff on modded cars.

they do the work and it gets denied by higher they have to eat it if they didn't charge you and you got your car back. Plus any major issues they are sending engineers out now. And also scanning PCM's.

Ya I've heard this.. I was told as long as I don't break into the motor or do anything serious like a s/c.. That's why I'm waitin on headers, cams, etc.. Another dealership bout an hour from here told my friend same thing w his 5.0.. May bite me in the *** later but hope not!!

As mentioned every dealer is different. And any time you mod you shoudl know there is that risk if them voiding warranty. Specially with TSP's out like this. Seen to many people get denied already just cause had tune.

Before this as stated. I had no issue with my dealer. They tend to still agree with me no exhaust or cold air should take out a engine. Or anything like that. A tune on the other hand could. To lean or to fat.
