    I wish it was configurable to where you could keep the exhaust open in 6th or not. It's nice that it doesn't drone in 6th, but I like to hear it sometimes. lol

    I'm looking into removing the resonators. Has anyone experienced a downside to doing so? Need feedback. Thanks so much.

    Cheeks begin to hurt from the smile it puts on your face :)

    Actually I haven't performed this mod but am planning to do it.

    Can the entire stock GT350 exhausts from cats to tips be used on a Mustang GT 5.0?

    I don't know if the cars with resonators do this, but my car is incredibly (some would say horrendously) loud on start up. The initial bark scares the crap out of people standing near the car.

    Yeah its even louder on cold starts since the valves open momentarily. My garage is set back about 100ft from the sidewalk and it set off my neighbors car alarm across the street. Ive considered starting it with the garage door closed if it becomes a problem. But man I love to push the red button.

    Unleashing the sound

    For this reason above my car will go from the dealership after I take delivery, straight to a muffler shop to allow for a clearer symphony. I do wish to hear a GT350R, have not even seen one yet :(

    Negatory ghost rider. Remember, the driver's side cat on the 5.0 is integrated onto the exhaust manifold now.

    Love firing mine up in my garage at 0500. My neighbors probably hate me. Wait until no cats/resonations. lol :ford:

    Yep, mine, too. It was loud on start up before removing resonators, but now...it's amazingly loud. :headbang:

    You know, I've been thinking about going the opposite direction. The volume is ok, but I hate the rasp in the GT350's exhaust note. I wondered if replacing the factory X-pipe with something like this might help tone it down: https://www.magnaflow.com/products?partNumber=14386

    I used a longer version of that product on my 2009 Pontiac G8 GT with excellent results.
