Shelby Exhaust

Know this has been beat to death, but looking for some more testimonies on your Shelby's exhaust. I installed Pype Bombs about 250 miles ago, & I've decided that I'm taking them off. They might sound ok on on a 4.6, but i think it sounds like a old truck with glass packs on my car...not "Shelby" enough for me. I had someone drive my car today so I could hear it, and it confirmed my suspicions. On the up side, I'll sell someone a 1 month old a exhaust for cheap now!

Axle back is nothing until headers.. U won't see a big HP gain with headers unless u change the blower. At that point headers are re difference in 30 HP

Ya. I still got the stock blower. Was curious if install was a lot of work. Was going to wait until I changed the blower but I'm wanting a nice aggressive sound pretty bad!

A client at my friends shop was always at the shop changing his exhaust set up till he finaly stuck with long tubes, o/r h, and borlas and boy does that car scream. It all comes down to how you like it, that guy went thru 3-4 catbacks untill he found the sound he liked.
