Mash up of exhaust questions

So to start I am in college and between jobs so looking for some temporary ideas until I get another job to do stuff right. I also do not want to void my warranty just yet(2012 GT with 26k miles). First off I hate how quiet our exhaust is stock, so what are some things I could do on the cheap to get a bit closer to that bad *** rumble our cars should have? I plan on going with pypes offroad hpipe and probably their catback system or some sort of axel backs. Also I saw on a post here that offroad hpipes would require a tune, is this true? -- and you can not tune then untune without dealer knowing correct?

My friend works at a ford dealer and heard(didn't work on it) a GT that sounded mean and it appeared to have no exhaust from somewhere before the mufflers. When I took my mufflers off the exhaust banged around like no other just from moving the car an inch so I put them back on. Is there any way I can take more piping off like my friend experienced and not have banging of the exhaust? I'll probably have more questions arise but this is where I'll end it for now, thank you for your time in advance.

An off road X/H Pipe requires a tune. Since you don't want to lose your warranty an axleback/catback are your only options. Go on youtube and start listening to clips.

You may want to just wait it out until you get another job and do it right the first time. Until then, take some exhaust recordings off of YouTube, plug them up to your car stereo and pretend it's your car making the noise. (that would be the cheapest temp idea, right? lol)

Probable the only cheap way would be to take off the mufflers and connect extension turn down pipes from the over the axle pipes. Only bad thing for this is it would leave the tip holes on the bumper empty so it would look a little off.

Or you could always do manual cutouts in your H pipe but that could potentially cause emission issues. Cutouts are around 35-40 dollars each minus install. But these are both 'cheap' solutions, I would really recommend just saving up and doing it right once.

$300 for Ford Racing's GT500 axlebacks... relatively cheap and sound great.

Just do it. You can do other stuff like off road H or X pipe, cat deletes, etc.. later.
