    Borla ProXS mufflers are really great mufflers. I've used them on several different cars, 4 cylinders to V8s and they all sounded good.

    I'm working on replicating this setup now, I have the mid muffler installed and I have the Borla 40358s in the garage waiting for me to choose some tips. I can say this, the Magnaflow center muffler combined with the stock mufflers out back make the car stupidly quiet, WAY quieter than stock. Its like a caddy. I kinda like it to be honest.

    Thanks for the update, I think you will like the Borla's over the stock mufflers with the MF Tru-X in place, a nice deep smooth tone. Give it 1000 miles and it will settle in and will be a bit louder than when first put on. I was a bit concerned at first that I quieted it down too much, but I really enjoy it now. When you get on it, it is definitely a nice growl, but when cruising it is as quiet as you want it to be. Like I said, this is definitely not the kind of exhaust if you want to be noticed, ha. I will try to get some recent videos to try and capture the difference.

    Sorry for the delayed response, but a few weeks back I left the house w/the Mustang for a Baskin Robbins banana split ... & 6,000+ miles later I finally found my way back home. :) Anyway, back to the topic at hand ... getting older is a fact of life, but getting old is a state of mind. And 'old' people simply do not own Mustangs (or pretty much any interesting car). As for you being 'old', hell, my oldest #1 son will be 40 in a few months & my youngest #1 son turned 36 earlier this year. And both of 'em absolutely refuse to let me grow 'old'!!! So suck it up, buttercup, yer livin' the dream.

    Yeah, with the blower on the car got a whole lot louder. With my Krona it was loud before and painful now. Just not interested in everyone within a 5 mile radius knowing I'm driving somewhere any more.

    Thinking of selling your Krona? I still haven't decided, lol. (You let me hear yours maybe two months ago, we met somewhere up by Dayville I think).

    Nope still haven't. Keep going back and forth on a few... let me know what price you're thinking when you decide and maybe I'll finally pull the trigger. I am trying to hear a Solo Mach XV in person real soon.

    Ok I got mine done! This to me is how the car should sound stock and probably would be perfect with long tubes. Deep sound with no drone, it actually seems to get quieter the higher it revs.

    I'll see if I can get some video to add to this thread. 20190905_161843.jpg

    I got some black 4" cheapo ones from amazon, $13 total. I'm thinking about going to quad tips so these are until I make up my mind.
