Yeah, I had a friend of mine that works at a body shop notch the bumper for me. Only took him about 20 mins to do it, he marked and taped it off, and used a air saw to cut it... then polished it up a bit after sanding and such. With the GT Takeoffs, the exaust tips stick out quite a bit, so without looking very very closely (like bending down one foot away) you cant tell at all the difference between the right and left side.
As far as the pipes go, the local shop here custom built the driver's side for me. They removed the passenger side, and the tech modeled a new pipe right in front of me for the drivers side. I watched the entire install from the beginning and was VERY impressed with his skill. Took them about 3 hours total for the complete install. One other thing I forgot to mention was the muffler body hangs down quite a bit with the v6 bumper, so I bought some Hi Temp black paint and painted them (not the chrome tips!) and it looks quite nice...
As far as sound goes, man! I am VERY impressed. I will post a clip soon on the sound for you. As an example, after the install and the muffler shop was taking it off the stand, when he cranked it up, he was like woah! I did not think you could get that sound out of stock gt mufflers... AND when I left there to go to the local walmart to buy the hi-temp paint, when walking across the parking lot, a guy was yelling: "hey! hey! mustang guy! What do you have in that thing???" I yelled back its just a v6, and he was like "no way! It sounds GREAT, and looks damn good too!" So to say the least, I thought right then and there, it was worth every penny!!!
Anway, I will post the sound clips, and pics in a new thread once I get them.... Don't want to mess this thread up with off topic posts...
