Pypes Violators

Thinking about changing my stock mufflers to the Pypes Violators. Anyone have input good or bad on these? Thanks

pypes has a very limited life and after about 10k they make you sound like a rice burner.... I'd reccomend that you save up a few extra dollars and go with flowmaster or magnaflow


mods: sct tune, jlt cai, flowmaster axle backs, sequentials

Where on earth did you come up with that? There's nothing wrong with Violators.

i'm personally not a fan of them at all. save up some more money for borla/frpp stingers, bassanis, and maybe even SLP's because they sound a hell of a lot better than those violators.

I had Stingers on the car.

They sounded great at idle and WOT but droned something fierce at highway speeds.

After a few months I had to take them off the car. They were driving me nuts.

I have Violators with Dynamax resonators on the car now. They are perfect for me.

Just yesterday I had a guy in a BMW pull up next to me at a light and ask me what brand mufflers I had on the car. He told me it was the best sounding Mustang he's heard.

I have had Violators for almost 3 years now. I love them. Sound great. Get compliments all the time. Added the Pypes LT headers and h-pipe with hi-flow cats. Love it now!

I love mine..they're just unruly enough to put a smile on my face without being too loud. They seem to give the car a little different sound than most of the other Mustangs I've heard.

The only issue I've noticed with mine is that they tend to collect water. I think a little drain hole somewhere would be helpful.

Installation was pretty easy. I did end up having to adjust the mid-pipes to get the tips centered in the bumper, but that was pretty easy. I definitely recommend them..can't beat the price!

Where did you get that info. I've had flowmasters and the drone drove me crazy. I had the Violators and loved them, but changed over to Pype Bombs when I went to LTs and an X-pipe.

Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate
