Only had the car for a day or so but already thinking of replacing the exhaust. I think the look of the standard exhaust lets the car down ( and a little bit deeper tone would be nice). I do not want anything too loud so have been looking at axle backs as they are cheaper but reluctant to start cutting my exhaust. I realise that to get a performance gain, a cat back will be better. I have watched loads of you tube clips but would be good to hear some modded Ecoboost mustangs in person. I'm in Devon - anyone in the South West changed their exhaust yet? I do quite like the sound of the Magna Flow & Roush - cost wise are not too bad either.

Have the Magnaflow Competition on mine, did an absurd amount of investigation on different systems. Catback is better than axle on the ecoboost, mainly because you're removing the restrictions of the stock system and in the process lowering the back pressure. No back pressure = happy turbo.
Anyway it got to the point where the missus just said "buy the damn exhaust will you"
I'm at the opposite end of the country to you unfortunately but I do have a couple of YouTube videos that I took. And if you trust [MENTION=20131]Manders Mustang[/MENTION] opinion I'm dropping in on him next week so he can hear it.

I remember the Betamax, my dad had to travel about 15 miles to get a tape for it, back in the day.
