Advice

Hey guys I bought a 2011 mustang gt 5.0 in October! So far all I have done is some graphics, a 5% window tint, a roush cold air intake and roush axel back exhaust(it sounds nice!) and did it myself.. other than that it's pretty stock..
Now I was wondering what I should do next? And also have some questions..Click image for larger version

What is the difference between h pipes and x pipes? And also long and short tube headers? And what I should do to my new baby

Advice

Okay here's the predicament your in.

Either keep Roush and bleed your ears out if you want power

(Longtubes x pipe)

Or you could go for a deep sound and not get as much power (shortys h pipe)

X pipe/ longtubes = more power and more raspy

H pipe/shorty headers = less power more old school muscle sound.


I recommend if your looking for power look into
- Boss 302 Manifold
- Cold Air Intake
- SCT Flash x4 Handheld
-1-7/8 Longtube Headers
- Offroad-X Pipe (compatible with the Longtube Headers(visa versa)

Appearance it's always nice to get new tints all around, wheels, stripes,

Now once you have power you will need to focus on weight reduction & suspension.
- Springs
- Shocks/Struts
- Upper Control Arms
- Lower Control Arms
- Control Mount
- Relocation Bracket
BMR suspension is my top pick.


Weight reduction you could get lightweight wheels, k member, flywheel, 1 pc driveshaft... Ect.. List goes on.


Depends all what you want to get on your car ....


Remember all this can be bought off AmericanMuscle.com with a 6% discount code from DailBailer or Alex Once you get 50 NON SPAMMING posts.


Goodluck !!

Laquisha just beat me to it! He has pretty much covered everything you need to know.

1) I personally would recommend you get rid of your roush axlebacks if you're going with long tubes and catless x/h pipe. A set of magnaflow street mufflers would be a good choice with this setup.

2) If money is not an issue, get cobra jet intake manifold and corresponding TB - just because of lack of low end torque on a boss. Or if you can find an IM from a 2015 (provided they fit), that be golden.

3) As for stripes, gt500 over the hood stripes on a white car look sick imo.

Thank you so much! And do you think it'd be too loud for street use? And as far as cold air intake you mean get a new one? Is roush not the best choice? I did it cause they had a good sale for the cai and exhaust comba plus It didn't require a tune

And so long tube and c pipe seems like the way to go.

All CAI are basically the same.. Don't really benefit you performance wise, mostly for looks.

I had Roush AB & Resonator Delete, it was fine.. Until I put on my BBK Longtube Headers & BBK Offroad - X pipe.

You don't understand, it's next level loud.. Basically a little louder than a nascar, so I suggest switching Axlebacks too a more mellow/quieter one if your going the LT/X-Pipe route.

Check out my Instagram and scroll down a few months for some sound clips If you want to hear it. @TrevorsGT

You could put an H pipe on and tell someone without looking it was an X, and they'd believe you. Same way switched around., unless you had two identical cars running next to each other with an H and an X.

Also, the Roush sounds wonderful until you take out the cats, then it's John Force loud all day.

Jesus yeah that sounds crazy! I might have to hold off on the x pipe and headers soley because after I buy that I'll have to get a new exhaust as well.. I guess the. Next thing could be the boss 302 till I save more


Thanks in advance!

After hearing @trevorsgt I'm still unsure about mixing the roush ab and any kind of headers and pipes haha


Thanks in advance!

H and X sound pretty different I think. X is definitely raspier. Probably louder and is slight power over H but pretty negligible. I have had a number of guys at meet ask why mine sounds so different and that they like it. They all had X pipe. Mine is catless but with stock headers (for now)
