I would love to change out the exhaust, we have had several Mustangs and they always are so cheap and easy to get sounding great. My 08 GT had x pipe and stock exhaust and sounded great. My old 97 SS I changed exhaust three times before I finally found the deep tone that wasn't ragged. I don't really want to drop a lot of money in to it. We also have mad emissions, had to put stock mufflers back on my Tundra before had inspected this last year, wasn't even thinking I had it straight piped from cats back didn't void warranty but NC didn't like it.
Thanks! I put a video up in the above post.

Just had BF Goodrich Sport Comp 2s installed. Stock sizes with pics coming tomorrow. Couldn't really try them out yet since it was raining

Those tires are not bad but the PSS are way better. For the street the BFG's are great especially for the price. If you plan on tracking it occasionally then get the PSS next.

It was $1600 vs $1000, and I couldn't justify the extra cash for the PSS.
