You don't need a lift. Just get on your back.

+1, some ramps or a jack wouldn't hurt but if your car isn't lowered you can do it at stock ride height. pretty easily.

8 bolts in all plus two clamps between the two mufflers not a whole lot to go wrong. Give it a shot

Good stuff! Are they on the car yet? I'd love to check out a sound clip. If you have sometime load a clip for us!

Like these guys said - the installation is super easy on these. Literally 2 bolts and you can do them on your back without even jacking up the car!

Thank you for your business and loyalty. We appreciate that!

I'm 6' tall and weigh 200 lbs. Not a small guy by any means. Ford decided to give the mustang damn near the same ride height as a small truck so you can easily do it without jacks or stands. I did it at midnight in my apartment complex. right in my parking space. just the light from my cell phone screen. 13mm socket and a socket wrench is all you need. Word of advice though. DO NOT try to take the "easy way out" and just unbolt the one exhaust clamp bolt and wiggle it off of the rubber hangers. I'm sure it's possible if you are a body builder and/or a contortionist but I am neither so its a major pain in the A$$. By taking the extra 5-10 minutes per side to unbolt the hanger bracket from the car and dropping the whole damn thing to the ground will save you a whole lot of time and frustration getting them off, swapping the hanger brackets over, and getting the new set on. Just make sure that you obviously put the bracket back onto the same side and facing the same direction that they came off. And don't waste your time with that garbage plastic alignment tool that comes with it. Just line it up the best you can. Tighten the bracket bolts nice and snug and the clamp bolt like 3/4 of the way tight and crawl back out from under the car and adjust it to where you want it to be and THEN tighten the clamp bolt down nice and tight.

I'm sure someone will tell me how much of an idiot I am and that I did it wrong and that I should be shot on sight. And seeing as how it's an exhaust thread I'm sure COMPSTALL is hiding in the dark somewhere just waiting to strike... I'm just telling you from experience what I did. And I did it start to finish in the dark in about 35 minutes.

And if you haven't already seen the dozens of threads on it, you should look into getting your resonators cut off and a straight 3" Stainless steel pipe welded in it's place. It should almost be a requirement with the GT500 axleback. $100 and 45 minutes max at any muffler shop can make it happen. So worth it. Night and day difference.

Hm I never thought about wiggling it out of the hanger. That does sound like a pain though

I didn't remove the hangers, I took the front hanger off of the muffler hook and push up and down with a little wiggle wiggle wiggle it came out. 40 minutes to do both sides

Got my Outlaws yesterday. Tried to get them started. Couldn't get the clamp that hold the muffler to the pipe off enough to let it loose. No jack here either.

Lol I'm not a wrench turner. Time to buy a buddy of mine a case of beer and some brats on the BBQ for a little helping hand.

I can vouch for this setup. I just had my GT500 ab's installed last week on my 2014 and I also had the resonators replaced with straight pipe. I went with all the online reviews and am very happy with the result. A little extra popping on deceleration but the sound on acceleration is great. Not too loud at startup/idle so if like me you have neighbors in close proximity you won't drive them crazy. I actually have an elderly woman living above my garages....lol.

I actually saw a decibel test online and it said that the GT500 axleback idle is quieter than the stock muffler idle. Obviously the GT500 w/ res delete isn't as quiet at any rpm but at idle it still isn't loud. I leave about 4:00AM every morning and none of my neighbors in my apartment complex have complained yet. Yet...

That sound like the next project but how is the drone? Cause I like how it is now without the drone n it drove me crazy when I had my charger.

I second that. There is zero drone w/ GT500 and res delete at any speed or rpm. I promise you if you get the resonators deleted you will NOT be disappointed. My wife got PISSED that I spent $100 and got it done. And then she heard it for herself and apologized and told me I should have got it done day 1...
