Did you monkey with your sound tube?

I guess I thought that most people would just pull this thing and plug the holes in the intake and firewall, but it seems I may have been wrong in my initial impression.

So what sayeth you AFM...

Removed mine to quiet things down inside the car. I like it quiet when cruising. This helps.

Awesome idea, makes perfect sense to me and I applaud Ford. Car sounded excellent to my driving perspective when getting on it before I did anything. GT500 mufflers installed rounding out a killer throatiness from the tail end, now it's absolutely perfect.

After installing my GT 500 mufflers I could hardly hear them from inside the car so I pulled the sound tube off but, it was too quiet so I put a thick piece of rubber tape over the
end and reconnected it, now its just right! A perfect balance between motor and exhaust sound.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

The Silent Majority always get slaughtered! It's always the small minority radicals that impose their will on the majority who don't speak up!
Americans have nothing to apologize for except for letting progressives force their will on the majority. :run_over:

I'd like to actually hear the motor, so I took one of the foam pieces out and reconnected. That coupled with the exhaust gives a very nice V8 symphony.

Mods don't matter.

The first dealer I went to when I was buying my 5.0, the salesman tells me it's a tube to pipe cool air from the cabin of the car!
