2013 Mustang GT Bolt On Questions...
I have quite a lot of questions and this will probably be a novel when I'm done. Maybe not...
Long story short, I originally wanted to buy a catback for my 2013 Mustang GT Automatic...and now I'm looking at headers, X/H pipe, catback, CAI and tuner. Yes, I jumped up quite a bit.
Many of the catbacks I've been looking at haven't been tested on 2013's yet. Some companies say they may not fit the same. If anyone with a 2013 has any of the parts I'm going to list, I'd appreciate it.
My top 3 exhaust choices are...
MBRP: 1 7/8" 304 SS headers, 409 SS H pipe and 409 SS catback. This is the best deal BY FAR, as I can get it all for around $1850 to my door.
Stainless Works: 1 7/8" 304 SS headers and X pipe and their retro 304 SS catback. I'm working on a price with these but they seem to be at least $300-400 more for me.
I also heard about chambered exhausts not flowing as well or providing as much power? Correct me if I'm wrong please...or if someone has this system, please chime in.
Kooks: 1 7/8" 304 SS headers, with an offroad X or H pipe and their 304 SS catback exhaust. Again, I haven't got a solid price on this yet, but it seems to be almost $1,000 more than the MBRP. It's a bit much, to be honest.
I'm open to other options, but I kind of wanted to keep things simple buy going with one manufacturer. I've seen headers like Dynatech (which are pretty awesome) and would go with those if I end up doing a custom header-back system from an exhaust shop.
Also, MBRP as well as a few others don't have the 2013 Mustang listed yet. They're not sure if the exhaust will fit. I guess I'm at their mercy until they get a 2013 in there to test or if anyone with a 2013 has put headers/exhaust on.
On top of the exhaust situation, I'd like to get a CAI. I have my mind set on the Steeda. I've heard nothing but good things about it. Again, I'm open to others.
As for tuning, I'd probably just run whatever tune came with where I bought the parts from for the time being. I was originally going to get an AED tune, but there is a local dyno that tunes race cars and they have done a bunch of new 5.0's (including the automatic ones) so I'll probably go with them. They are very well known where I live.
That pretty much sums it up for now. Yes, I've searched about 1 million times and have read many reviews...it's hard to with the 2013 Mustang because it's still so new.
