It's definitely worth the money. Now my only concern is if i can put long tube headers/x pipe on the Roush exhaust

Any videos? I would love to hear it. If I go with x pipe I'm going off road? Any big difference on off road or catted?

Also did you have to cut anything or was it a perfect fit?

For some reason it won't let me upload videos straight from my phone.... I have a good one my girlfriend took at the drag strip so you can really hear it opened up.

Yeah, they make a difference at idle, lol! Just be prepared for old ladies to cringe and run in fear! Lol! I had to put the flowmasters back on with the roush resonators to appease the older crowd in the neighborhood.... Had two complaints.

They didn't call the cops, but unfortunately we're in a gated community and if you get too many formal complaints they can have you park outside the gates on the street and I'm not having that, lol!

---------- Post added at 05:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:32 PM ----------

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the aggressive sound with the roush cat back.... So the bad part is I find myself searching for a more aggressive axel back to try and meet in the middle, lol!

---------- Post added at 05:35 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:33 PM ----------

Ive got the roush tips just waiting to be reinstalled once we move though!

Thank you! I've got the ford racing hot rod cams. I got them because they work good n/a or supercharged and I plan on supercharging later. The idle is set at 750.... There's a few more videos that the tuner posted of it and some I posted as well when it was warmed up... You can really hear the cams then. I had a shop do all the instillation. I think for everything with dyno tuning it ran me right at 3,000, not including parts.

How does it sound in the Cabin. Is it obnoxious & bothering or is it quiet?

Re: Roush Catback Exhaust Finally Installed

Stock it put down 278rwhp with just the roush cat back. After the cams, intake, JLT cold air, long tubes with catted x and tune, it put down 334rwhp. Almost 60hp at the wheels. I think there could be some more left in it. The tuner told me it was a "conservative" tune. And it was tuned on mid grade gas not premium.

Re: Roush Catback Exhaust Finally Installed

Factory rating at the motor is 315. Now at the motor I'm running around 395. Not too shabby. I was TDY to San Antonio, TX in JUL and AUG and took the car to the strip there. I was running 13.7 spinning on the stock street tires and there was a 2011 Roush stage 2 with drag radials running 13.2's. Keep in mind San Antonio isn't at sea level so the times are slower then the sea level guys are used to.

Actually not really. Had a little drone at 60-65, but around town nothing. The internal drone is actually much worse with the flowmasters around town

It's just how they're made. Most of the flowmasters aren't insulated or baffled to keep the sound out of the cabin... They're made for those who like their car to be heard and like to hear their car, lol!

I have the American thunder classics... They're square, not rounded off..... They're supposed to be the worst. I've heard the hushpowers are actually pretty good, and I just heard their outlaw series and they sound awesome!

I agree! The one thing I can't understand is why the axel backs are so expensive.... I could have gotten a whole system for my old 5 liters or my 04 for what we have to pay for the axel backs!
