All of our standard catback and axleback systems (excluding xMOD) are compatible with both coupe and convertible.

The only real fitment difference is the center support brace on the convertible models.

Installed a set Ford Borla Racing mufflers sounds great and runs better Steeda X Pipe is next
An added plus being that both David Borla and the folks at Steeda are very responsive to questions. I have Steeda lowering springs on the '20 ST and they greatly enhance the ride quality. The ST does not feel as top heavy in corners as it used to.

It’s the extra bracing. Some companies do not bend the pipes with that in mind and will rub against it.
So if the manufacturers are not saying that it will fit the convertible, then I would think twice before splurging.

For whatever reason the 18+ they only offer the catback systems which is why I was considering the Borla stingers and a custom hpipe setup to eliminate the X-pipe which will come out roughly the same as the AWE touring catback system.
That's a shame they don't offer the touring axleback for 18+. I have the AWE Touring on my '16 vert as well, and also LOVE it

Yes, but unless they corrected them recently I've read fitment can be hit or miss on the convertibles.

I am running a Magnaflow catback system on my 17 and couldn't be happier with the fitment. Plus the sound is perfect.

:cwl: Yes, I am. We have a front plate law in TX. Fine is $200.00 if convicted. That has never happened to my knowledge. The law is simply a tax as it places no points on ones DL. And, the loophole is to show up at either the local JP's office or if in the city, municipal court. Ask for a court date. The judges admin will ask if the plate is on the front of the car where she can see it. As long as it's there, the ticket is dismissed. $10.00 administrative fee.:clap: Me, I had a court date set. I appealed the citation up to the third level. At that point, the circuit judge threw out the citation. At that point, the cost to the state exceeded the fine.

my 2015 GT auto 3.55 gears Vert has stainless works long tube headers with cats, stock tubing and ford resonator, and Ford Touring Axel back mufflers. the system is 4 yrs old with 20,000 miles and it is getting louder but recently has developed a terrible drone between 2200 and 2500 rpm. So bad the last 6 hour trip I stopped and and put in a pair of ear plugs!
It is still fine at lower and higher rpm's but the drone really hits when on the expressway.

Called Borla the maker of the mufflers for Ford and they think the stock resonator has failed due to the strong exhaust waves coming from the header vs the factory manifolds and stock cats.

I want to hear the car when getting on it but also want to be able to talk and use the phone on the highway.

Any suggestions and how to resolve?

I have almost the same setup, but I have the sport mufflers and an x-pipe. Mine doesn't drone, it's just flat out f'n loud. But I don't care it's what I wanted and my car is only a toy anyway, it's not my DD

So what are our opts for exhaust systems. I'm trying to find a full system. Headers and full cat backs. Most things under are fastback only. What are our options? Ide like something like Corsa extreme. Also, what exactly make the exhaust system different for us convertible people? 2019 GT owner here.

Drove it last night with the Boral touring cat back including their resonator with built in H pipe internals. It turned out perfect! Still has lots of bark under hard acceleration and WOT. But at normal cruising speeds up into the 80's you can still hear the exhaust note but it is not bothersome. It has the sound of a 60's muscle car with duels back to the days of my youth! Pretty happy with the replacement.
No seat of the pants noticeable loss of power.
