anyone regret their aftermarket exhaust?

I am debating keeping my car for several years or looking to trade/sell in feb 2017.

If I keep it, I would like to do a Roush exhaust (reviews seem to be great) dealership installed etc etc

does anyone regret getting rid of the stock exhaust?

From a couple reads here I can say 2 things.

If you get roush keep the rest of the exhaust stock since and off road exhaust makes it sound horrible.

I previously had the MagnaFlow Race axle backs (basically muffler deletes) before the resonator deletes and the drone drove me up the wall to the point that I sold them. I loved my resonator delete with GT500 mufflers in my 11 GT. It had a good tone to it. Not loud but not quiet. I just did exhaust on my 16 GT (Lethal H pipe and FRPP Sport mufflers). Has a good sound to it but I think I might end up changing it. Sound kind of matches the car but the drone is bothering me. Res deletes with the Roush mufflers sound good but I like to be different. They pop a bit more and are noticeably louder.

Very happy with both my choices. FR500 and Roush extreme. Never look back to the stock mufflers on either.


Pick your poison.

I can imagine that with deletes. I just chopped the Flowmaster exhaust from the previous owner and put in some MagnaFlow bullets with a frpp x pipe. Drone at 2000 is a little annoying, but I just bump it up 5mph or so.

Get the Roush. I love mine. Unless you're gonna weld them don't bother with the dealer. I used the supplied clamps and it took me about a hour for a flawless install on my drive way with a jack and Jack stands.

Corsa Extremes here, and I really love them! No drone at all at cruise, though the tone is more rich baritone that bass. Not too loud except at full throttle, where they really wail.

When you see NO Drone advertising about Corsa exhaust they are not joking.

I've got Flowmaster 40's that came with the car when I got it. Added a MagnaFlow o/r x-pipe and it sounds like a beast. Personally, I don't think it's bad on the inside, and the gf (who complains about everything) hasn't about the noise. She *****es about everything else, but not the noise 😂😂😂

not your question but why dealer installed? Put out a feeler for a local person to help you...buy lunch, make a friend, learn how to wrench.

regretted the set of loud Roush axle backs I installed. Had them on for about 30 minutes before they were removed and promptly resold. Waaaaay too loud for my tastes (and neighbors).

I have a 3 inch Borla racing exhaust and all I get is praises. I don't know where you get that after market exhausts are horrible. If you do your research they can be very satisfying as in my case and no drone whatsoever. My research drove me to Bassani and Borla and I chose the Borla but that is just personal preference I guess.

Love my Roush, but they do have a drone at 2k RPM with no other mods. Still no regrets getting them. Had the GT500s but they were a tad too quiet for my tastes.

Magnaflow streets here,
I did this video going across the Chesapeake bridge Tunnel going into Norfolk Va.
It wasn't to really hear the exhaust note but it sure did make my Magnaflows hearable.
Absolutely "NO" drone or vibration at all.
Just a nice deep rumble and only noticeably if you tune your ear to listen.
I did not want loud obnoxious noise but wanted the nice deep sound on my V6.
The Magnaflow streets work perfect for me and I would get them again if I get another Mustang.( Of which I'm not even thinking of)
Exhaust tone is really a personal choice so try to get people to take you for a ride that have different mufflers to see what you would want.
Listening in a parking lot standing in back of a car being over revved tells you nothing, A ride around the bloct is what you need.
Ronnie

Fact: Everyone regrets their exhaust (stock and aftermarket) at some point or various points in their life of owning their mustang

I Ordered my Magnaflow Streets the same day I bought my Mustang.
American Muscle did not have any so I found them on Amazon and bought them.
The third day after having Red Ryder I installed them.
I never once regretted buying them and enjoy the sound without getting a headache driving my car.
Like I say, They are not for everybody because some people love a very loud obnoxious muffler and that is fine. Just not for me.

I just joined and although I've watched a lot of YouTube and vendor videos, I wanted to see what everyone recommends for a cat back exhaust that will be lower on loudness and more of a low and deep growl. I have a 2017 Mustang GT. Any opinions is appreciated.

I bought an 07 this month, had loud exhaust, headers, chip installed by previous owner. I like the sound but I've taken it back to dealer twice for engine check light and codes for lean mixture on both banks. Anyone else had this issue...know how to fix???

One of the exhausts that I keep leaning towards from the videos is the Ford Racing by Borla Touring cat back, it sounded like the sport version would be pretty loud in comparison.

Great choice, About the same sound as Magnaflow streets. You will still be able to listen to the radio or talk to your passenger with these.

The other one that sounded nice from what I watched was the RTR street spec axel back but I don't really want to cut the stock system and instead prefer to have the full cat back.

I love my Magnaflows and don't regret buying then one bit.
They look and sound great and still looking new after almost five years.
They sound better then ever and "NO" complaints here.

My '11 had catback Borla's on it. Since I didn't buy them not sure if they are S or touring. Enjoyed it, all but the drone cruising 85 and up. Changed out the straight 3" pipe X mid for a h pipe resonated 3" mid from heartthrob. Aluminized steel, but deeper tone and cut out my drone. Just a bit less loud now. Sure don't miss the drone.
