I noticed when looking for different exhaust options my searching was always concluded with the typical axel-back, gt500 muffler install.
A Little Back story,
I searched high and low for the best sound i could get out of this car since Late October 2010 and I always seemed to land on the borla s-type/ Atak. Dont get me wrong, I love the sound but at a blistering $1400 price tag i just couldn't see pulling the trigger for an online purchase. 2 weeks ago i cured my indecisions by finally noticing that the pipes for the Borla kits were only at a 2.75 diameter w/ 4inch tips . I didn't want the the same size stock pipes i wanted 3 inch throughout. I found the Kooks cat-back at $845 through Southerncarparts.com, but after the crazy snow across the US lately UPS took 10 business days to deliver.
I got the exhaust Monday 1/17
I called Kenny's Muffler in Watauga, TX about getting this thing bolted up. I have heard nothing but exceptional work and pleasant experiences through this company.
His Website to browse of other cars hes worked on. Warning?!?!?! you will get lost in the photo section lol, hes had quite a few cars come to him for exhaust. HOME
I only talked with Kirk the owner and what a blessing it is to have someone knowledgeable and helpful in any avenue you want to go with your car.
Dropped the car off this morning at 8am 1/20
I had planned on just going with the cat-back install for around $150, but after Kirk started getting the exhaust off he called me and offered me a deal i couldn't refuse for going further with an x-pipe.
-$845 Kooks Cat-back
-$375 Cat-back install + x-pipe + piping going to the factory cats.
$1220 spent and i couldn't be happier with the sound and work done.
Pay special attention to the welds on the stock h-pipe. They look terrible and that alone should be reasoning for getting this stock system outta there quickly. My car just hit 3,300 miles.
Terrible video i know, im still working the apple 3g.
I also posted the link to the video below the pics for those at work that cant be viewing youtube videos. YouTube - 2011 Mustang GT Kooks Catback + X-pipe
