    And for the ones not happy with the 310 (314HP) there are plenty of MOD's around : Livernois, COBB,...and Ford coming up as well with a warranty prove, hassle free version by the end of the year...estimated at $ 500,-

    It seems Borla is going to release some exhausts (without Ford Racing) in the coming weeks/months...Available in Europe as info was provided by official Borla reseller.

    FORD 2015 MUSTANG 2.3L ECO BOOST, AT/MT, RWD, TOURING – axle back
    FORD 2015 MUSTANG 2.3L ECO BOOST, AT/MT, RWD, S-TYPE – axle back
    FORD 2015 MUSTANG 2.3L ECO BOOST, AT/MT, RWD, ATAK – axle back
    FORD 2015 MUSTANG 2.3L ECO BOOST, AT/MT, RWD, TOURING – cat-back
    FORD 2015 MUSTANG 2.3L ECO BOOST, AT/MT, RWD, S-TYPE – cat-back
    FORD 2015 MUSTANG 2.3L ECO BOOST, AT/MT, RWD, ATAK – cat-back

    Prices yet unknown...pictures unavailable at the moment...

    Wonder what the difference will be with Ford racing apart of the embossed FR logo and price ...

    Chances are a CE approved version will also be released. Interesting in case of problems at the technical check up at the end of the 4th year in Belgium. Other solutions are the Cat backs as easy to swap if you have issues to get a 'green card' with this check up...

    at first i was happy to hear, there will be exhaust with an american Soundtrack:headbang:
    then i asked myself, if they would offer exhaust for the 5.0:paddle:

    but then you mentioned the ce-approval prob...
    the end of 4th year check up is NOT a prob. indeed you could Change the whole System the day before the check up

    B U T : If you install a non-approved exhaust and the engine gains some horsepower you void the approval of the complete car and this voids your insurance. in case of an accident this could ruin you:(

    Hmm, I just wondered ... are we actually getting the projector ponies? I am hoping they are not illegal in some way here and left off :(

    :D your doubt is legit and it's the first feature I feared we won't have. Hopefully it's listed in almost all euro catalogues :)

    States it in the UK specs at least so can't see why they would change that feature else where in Europe.

    if you take a Axle Back Ford Racing it should not gain the horsepower actually. i heard from some tuners here in germany they are working on exhaust systems with german TÜV for the GT

    Depends on the country you live in. E.g. in germany you're only allowed to build in parts that are approved in germany.

    Nevertheless you will always lose your Ford warranty.

    Ok, so in your case, if you install a exhaust approved by Germany, you do not lose your Ford warranty? or you always lose the warranty as long as you modify anything on the car?

    If you import keep in mind there seems to be a 10% import duty...:doh:

    Wonder what happens with the warranty if you use the Ford Racing (Borla) version...It's Ford, right?

    The Belgian Borla importer can supply the FordRacing version the Dutch one not..(Borla original only)

    FR version : € 790,- + € 265 TPT cost.
    US price : $789 and price at CJpony for TPT is $ 295,- (to Belgium)
    The duty will take away the small dollar/euro ratio advantage...so why bother to import..

    The Roush however is $ 200 cheaper and seems attractive as well but guess warranty might be issue (even with Roush as authorised Ford tuner ?)
