I thought the Borla headers you installed sounded awesome. lol its seems that ppl over here are never satisfied with sound bits on systems esp when all the hardwork of taking your own time to make vids. Man you sure as hell did a lot of work on your ride. Nice front end conversion and rims.

Did you install the headers yourself? If you didn't how much did you pay for installation? Thinkin about gettin the headers n x pipe for my ride in a few months to.

Thanks again for the feed back today i went up north a bit with my mustang club crew (Muscle Stangs of Miami) and i had the best feedback ever some of the guys from the Mustang show that we went to all though that i actually had a Shelby GT500 even the guys with Shelby's they were stunned when i told them that it was a V6 as they also Said and i QUOTE: Man No one would of though that was a V6

I did install the headers myself as i have pretty good Knowledge on working on my car but a local shop said they would do it for 350 dollars i though that was a bit steep so i decided to do it on my own so far i have done everything on my car including some parts of the front conversion.

2011 mustang v6 BORLA LT HEADERS pt3 - YouTube

for those in question yes Borla is BY FAR the best sounding system at least for the 2011's

No other system sounds like this and yes i have heard the BBK and no they do NOT sound better then Borlas LOL at ALL
Thank you for the vids I must say they sound good in that last vid, I definetly want to see them in person bet they sound much better. I am saving up for them its probably going to be a christmas present from myself to myself lol

looks like you caught some nice lightning and thunder in the 3rd video for a second i didnt know if it was the thunder i heard or your car

Man so nitro you installed those headers using a lift by yourself? Man its good that you got the experience to handle a difficult install like that. Yea 350 is a bit steep for headers and x pipe. I was quoted 200.00 plus tax which I thought wasn't bad.

Did any of those shelby guys gripe at your front end conversion with the cobra badges?
,
I gotta say tho man with all the $$$ you put into that full-exhuast system, you by far have one of the best sounding '11 6'rs on the forum. I appreciate you taking the time to finally put a vid of this amazing full Borla exhaust system. NOW i really look forward to finishing up my Borla exhaust project lol.

They would be raping you for $500. Most people with a friend could do this in 2 hrs or less. Assuming the tech doesn't ride the short bus to work wearing a diaper and helmet, he should be able to do this in 1.5 hrs on a lift.

actually

Thank you for the Feed back 808mustang the Shelby guys actually were to busy with their mouths opened on the fact that i had a V6 that i had converted the Front into a Shelby and sounded Almost Identical to a Real Shelby everyone kept on giving me Props for doing the things i have done to my car on my own and i have always been a i'll pay for it type of guy but now a days with the economy you don't know what in the hell someone might do to your car that might mess up later on only so you can go back to them so i much rather do things on my own and like that i know exactly what has been done to my car, I did not do this on a lift i simply used 2 Large Jack Stands and a 2.5 ton Roller Lifter used a 13 mm Ratchet for the bolts along with Impact Gun and Impact ratchet for the Bolts from the Manifold connected to the X-Pipe/Catalytic converter it was a 12mm On the Impact gun with an Extender and then the bolts from X pipe to Headers and From X pipe to Cats were both 15mm the clamps that came with the package are rather small so make sure the Clamps COVER all holes that might be on the X pipe Tips Torque it and your set. the most amount of time spent was tightening the bolts Extreamly Unconformable on the Passenger side do to the Minority of Space , Driver side Surprisingly was the easiest side Even tho the steering column is there it was ALLOT easier

Are the comma's the only punctuation working on your computer or phone or whatever you are using? And no capital "I" either? :nogrinner

Thanks for the great details on the setup nitro. I might have to go ask some of my boy's if they got an impact gun though. Man esp since your going FI route next your ride should be more of a BEAST lol you lucky SOB.

I have to ask Nitro, how much did that front end conversion run you? It looks fantastic and I would be considering that over the gt bumper with the boss splitter.

Seriously? Come on man, how long ago did you graduate? The apostrophe should be after the s, as the commas' have no posessions. This also negates "the" being placed before "comma's", as said commas' are pleural.

The moral of the story? Please don't rip on someone else's punctuation and/or grammar if you're not going to use proper punctuation and/or grammar yourself.
