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.

THIS^^^^^

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.

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.
