Needed another good example of the AMT, so I added this to the sticky thread. Nice!

I have not noticed any drone yet, course its a stick, so it may behave diff from on an automatic. I am loving the deep sound and getting worse gas mileage cause now I REALLY wanna stick my foot in it!

I have the same setup and an auto. I don't see the drone being that bad. Yeah there is some but you can only hear it with the radio off. It would be nice if there was none at all but it's not enough to make me even think about changing it. I have had it installed for around 7-8 months now and am still very happy with it.

i was hoping ud let it sit longer so when you started it its like...WAAAAHHH...i love leaving mine sit for 6 or 7 hours while at work cuz when its time to leave...everyone knows when im outa the lot

i only hear drone below 2000rpm aka pre-mature shifting...but you are a dammed fool and a grandma if you drive below 2000...

i also read somewhere that our LTs run rich...which is true...riding 89 for 8 months i made the switch to 87 and im noticing a lot less SOOT accumiliating in the tips....glad someone pointed this out...

ur right about the gas mileage...i havent driven the car any different before or after exhaust swap...so ive noticed a 2mpg increase in gas mileage....holler

Drove it around town today a few miles. You remember that goofy grin you got when you first got in your new Camaro and realized you were there? That grin that comes unbidden... Well, it is happening even more now!

Cruising along a 4 lane highway on the way home, a guy in an older Z28 punched into his when he heard me go by! I still think mine sounded better! When I was getting it installed a SS was having the exact same exhaust put on. The guys at the shop and I agreed it did not do much for the SS, but on teh 2LT... Man it was really impressive with the difference.

As far as MPG, well, I will never get good gas mileage, I love punching into this car so much that I rarely get good gas mileage. Now that it sounds even more bad ass... well, I give up!

I was torn between the MRT and the Flowmasters, then I realized that MRT stood for Mustang Racing Technology! I havent really heard the JBA, post a vid so I be jealous!

Rode it around today out shopping and cruising with wife. At 2000 rpm I finally realized what you guys are calling drone, I am calling what I paid for! I love the rumble!

Sweet! I think the Flowmaster AT is some of the best money you can spend for a mod. I know mine really sounds good and strong! The fact that those galvanized cans are gone and a much nicer tip is just an added feature.

I got mine form Autoanything.com back in February for $325 delivered. Obviously the demand caused a slight increase. I still think its the best bang for the bucks! I like the sound and look of the tips and its only gotten better with time. No drone and the inside cabin is right! I don't think you can go wrong with this axle back. They, all exhaust sound loud initially on start up but it idles down and has a nice low rumble. I know the last Meet & Greet we had at Hare Chevrolet last July, when I arrived everyone thought I had a V8 based upon the sound but when I told them I was a V6 they were surprised and asked what I did to change the sound. Its all Flowmaster A.T.

yeah I've had the American thunder axelback for bout 6-7 months and I'm not noticing any drone on my car, but then again I'm hardly ever riding around with my radio off. added a ROTO-FAB CAI and it sounds even deeper and a bit louder also.

As far as gas mileage it's improved a bit, i think, honestly I'm like you guys i can't keep my foot off the gas to notice any improvement in gas mileage lol. But the sound will only get better as you add on more mods to your car.
