    I own a 2018 F150 5.0L. I had a Flowmaster Outlaw Exhaust on it. The loudest exhaust I’ve ever heard on a cold morning. It came to the point that I had to put the truck into neutral and coast into the street to start it, so the sound wouldn’t echo off the house. Wife hated it, neighbors didn’t like it, I wasn’t a fan. It really did ‘wake the neighbors’. I switched to MBRP and love the sound.

    I recently purchased a 16 Mustang GT and am looking at exhausts. I like the Roush but after reading some reviews and posts, I’m nervous as to how loud it is. Magnaflow Street or Ford Borla Touring would be my next choices. But how loud is the Roush? Is it anywhere near the Outlaw? Louder? Noticeably quieter?

    Anything with a larger muffler would be what you want. The outlaw mufflers are very small so it results to be very loud. Maganflow, Roush, Borla, and Corsa are all bigger mufflers so they won't be super loud like the Flowmasters. All the brands I listed are great systems. I recommend watching some youtube videos to find one you will like. After you pick a system, we carry all of those brands here at @LethalPerformance so we can get you taken care of on ordering one! We are also having a July 4th sale coming up.

    Thank you. I’ve listened to You Tube videos and read reviews. The problem that I have is I really don’t notice the difference on video. I mean the Outlaw sounded like a canon when it started. I’m thinking that no other CB system is anywhere near as loud as the Outlaw but I just want to make sure before I waste another $1000+. lol

    Yeah Outlaws are basically muffler deletes. Anything with a larger style muffler is what you're looking for. MBRP and Roush have medium size mufflers. Corsa, Magnaflow, and Borla have the large style. Larger muffler = more noise reduction and deeper growl tone.

    If you have a Mustang club in town, swing by for one of their meets. You will probably find a few cars with aftermarket exhausts that you will get to hear in person. Cold starting mine in the garage with Steeda H Pipe and Axle-backs is really loud for that first 15 seconds or so.

    We do have a club, but it hasn’t been too active this year because of the virus stuff. Mine would just be cat back, no headers or anything. I’ll probably just do the Roush and see how it goes.

    ‘A guy I work with has MBRP. They sound really good. I have them on my truck and the sound is nice as well. I want something else on my car though.

    There will be a TON of people posting up the Corsa HH setup soon. Can't wait to hear them. It sounds great in person.

    AWE Touring sounds great. No drone and quality is on point. Definitely worth it, though I would note its not exactly quiet either.

    AWE quality is amazing. It’s absolutely worth the $ if you like the tone. If I didn’t get my catback for an insane deal, I would’ve went AWE Touring.

    Absolutely. It's basically as loud as Corsa Xtreme and Borla ATAK.

    If you want a reasonable volume but still lots of fun when you open it up, Corsa Sport catback. The Borla S type and Ford Performance sound good too.

    Yup this.

    I went custom. Coming from Corsa Xtreme connected to ARH long tubes, ended up cutting off the Xtreme mufflers, keeping the Corsa double x and adding AWE Touring mufflers. It was as loud if not louder after replacing, with more character in the lower rpms. Although the way it comes from the factory with the H pipe and resonators would not be as loud, it definitely has volume on the higher end. But but sounds great. Just don't want you going in thinking its a quieter exhaust :)

    Black diamond quad tips look great as well.
