Axle back (mufflers and tips) at SLP run $404 - $629. MRT $429. Not saying right or wrong, just a price point difference over LS3/L99.

Well, I have the LS3, and this will be the FIRST car I am NOT changing out the
exhaust because I love the sound. It is also getting better with more mileage.
Sound is subjective, but the growl of my LS3 is SWEET! Now I have heard the L99 sounds much tamer, although I don't know. I have not heard one. LS3 is the perfect mix in my opinion. Mean when you want it to be, but it can be tame
if you need it to be. I can't ask for more than that.

Also, stock mufflers are always heavy and restrictive because there trying to lower the sound DB in the car via a quit exhaust. The MRT or SLP seem like they have a great sound and probably increase HP a little. That’s just my .02
i think the goal here is not only to save money but upgrade the exhaust so that it sound like an American V6 and not like a Honda with a fart can. Deleting the muffler on a v6 is a very aggressive, and to some, a bit of a turn off. Even most aftermarket systems are very aggressive sounding. and a bit too raspy. this is a direct replacement and gives better flow without going to far on the sound increase, but improves the tone.

many v6 mustang owners that have looked/listened to exhaust videos would tell you the FRPP(ford racing) exhaust sounds the best due to it using factory GT mufflers, with out being over the top in the raspy area.

Thing is just switching the stock V6 muffler to a GT take-off muffler was good for like 10RWHP... and if you thought the 2010 V6 Camaro was quiet, my 2005 V6 was even quieter!

Also the Mustangs mufflers are tucked up, pretty much out of sight... part of the reason I did the exhaust on my Camaro was for looks! I just didn't care for those big canisters... new exhaust looks SOOOO much better!

Ok here are some more videos I have uploaded 5 new ones I took today all inside the cabin. WOT w/ windows closed, and open, normal driving, ect...

Hope this helps other decided for now I will stick with the LS3 mufflers until I figure out which system I want to get down the road.

Enjoy

sounds real good! I like this tone better than the V6 mufflers. Probably the straight through design making the improved sound difference vs. the V6 style, non straight through and all that packing squashed in the cans on the V6 mufflers.

Thanks for sharing!

I will work on getting some drive by vids in the next day or so. I will post some pics of the under side where they welded the mufflers this evening.

[QUOTE=01pewterz28;1254681]Here are a few pics of the muffles installed some people asked to see the welds and if they use the stock hangers.

My prior Question:
"Did you have to move or alter any of the REAR 4 hangers or did it fit PERFECTLY......??"
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I wanted to know if the REAR 4 hangers fit WITHOUT rewelding ?
I was told those 4 REAR hangers are NOT in the EXACT same place as the V6 ones !

NOT the 2 in your photo ( those 2 DO NOT have to be touched at all)
Thanks

Can a LS3 exhaust setup from the Catback, be installed completely on my V6 without any mods? I have a chance for one for $50.00. Thanks
