Fays2 Watts link and Solo performance exhaust

Has anyone installed these together on a 11-14 GT? I'm considering both of these products but I want to be sure there won't be any clearance issues before I drop the cash on them.

Any input would be helpful.

I would definitely call one of the guys at Solo to check on this. There are super to deal with and very thorough. I have their hi-flow cats and full catback. It is quite loud. The only bad part is that the 5.0 has a 1500 rpm cold start. With cold cats this will definitely wake the neighbors in the morning. I have sound clips posted somewhere if you need them.

I had a fays2 watt link on a 2013 mustang gt that was lowered with steeda springs. The watt link hit the exhaust a lot. I would not use it on a lowered car.

Well I did contact solo a while back and they couldn't confirm if there would be good clearance or not. So with the comment above me does anyone know if the BMR unit has exhaust clearance issues or not? I like both designs but I don't want to spend the money if it's going to be rattling against my exhaust constantly.

Gjk1. And others who say it's loud. Is that the Mach kit or the race it? The Mach kit is supposed to be a lot quieter.

I have the BMR watts link and no clearance issues at all with the exhaust and I am lowered about 1.5". However I did have a slight problem that apparently nobody else with over 120 sold. My driver side axle clamp would come in contact with the body or frame of my car when I would hit significant dips in the road. It also seemed like my car got lowered about 1/4" after installation for some strange reason. Maybe due to other adjustments I made with extending my adjustable LCA's. I believe I solved that problem by trimming about 1/8" off the top of the flange where it was contacting as well as 1/4" off the corner of the bracket. I am still happy with the BMR watts link and have not tested it out on the road course yet.

I dying to jump on the Solo's because they seem to sound fantastic but I'm running long tubes with an o/r xpipe and I think it'll hit a whole new level of obnoxious. I am running with oem resonators though. Did you get yours installed yet OP?

No. I haven't purchased yet. I'm waiting for a bit.
