I felt the hill assist work a little earlier, the incline just has to be steep enough.

How much is the volume difference if I do headers, no mufflers, and no resonators as opposed to with the resonators on?

The low end torque is a little lacking but a tune will take care of that real quick! Once you get above 3k RPMs, it pulls real nice. The best way to find out about the power band is to drive the hell out of it!

Depends if you're doing long tube headers with an O/R X or H pipe or shorties with cat delete's, etc.

I'm guessing it'll be pretty loud and mean haha.

Nice ride! I bought mine at the same dealership a year and a half ago.

As far as volume goes, I have a muffler delete on mine, and it is pretty loud. I still have factory headers, mid-pipe, and resonators, and it is as loud as I want it to be. What side of town are you on? If you want to hear the setup, let me know, maybe we can set up something.

Enjoy the Stang!

Mines has a mind of its own also unless the incline is really steep where it really counts.

Nice ride. Definitely get rid of the mccombs sticker. And as for the front plate. Texas - "no front plate" still a violation ?
Had an officer who was a customer tell me about this.

I find hill assist generally kicks in on a steep incline which is where it is most useful. I thought I would find it annoying but don't mind it all to be honest, particularly when you are in real tight with someone hanging on your tail.

Definitely want loud and mean. I'm thinking about an x pipe, how does that compare to the h pipe? I'd be doing long tubes

X-pipes tend to be more "Raspy" (and I dont mean in a Bad way) and they have a higher pitch especially at higher RPM's (like a NASCAR engine)......H-pipes have a lower octave (deeper sound) and they usually have a 4 measure throb due to the Right and Left Banks of the V8 bouncing off of each other......The old addage about X-pipes being able to flow more air than H-Pipes, and therefore being able to produce any real measurable H.P. at higher RPM's has been questioned by the Exaust Maker MBRP in plenty of tests... (as long as the crossover Tube in the H-Pipe is of sufficiant size in relation to the size of the 2 sides (coming from each bank of the mid-pipe)..........For me, I have had both, and I most definately prefer the Deep Boom of an H-Pipe system But this is just MY opinion.......But being that you are going with Long tubes, you may want to gather more info from a few of the guys that are sporting the longs. As now you are entertaining the superior scavenging properties of the longer tubes, and you might just be negating the all so good reason for having the longer tubes in the first place.....That being Scavenging! As I do not think that both banks bouncing off each other in the H-Pipe at 4 bangs per bank is necessarily a good thing.......But as I said.....Check with some of the other members that have run both setups ....Check with Grimace427, as he has MUCHO KNOWLEDGE in this matter ...............Sean
