FYI, they can be shipped to Commiefornia, it's just illegal to use. Although enforcement sort of depends on the region. For example, in my last car (which was much louder than my current), I never had any problem in the Greater Los Angeles area. But once I took a road trip up to San Jose (Central Cali) and got pulled over for aftermarket exhaust. The officer said, "You know it's illegal to have an aftermarket exhaust in California?" and I said "What? I had no idea!" He took a look at my license and said, "Well, I'm gonna let you off with a warning because I don't know how they enforce it down there." =D

So anyways, considering the more liberal interpretation of noise pollution in SoCal, I don't think my current exhaust will be an issue. Accelerating normally produces as much noise as an older 350z with slightly worn stock mufflers. And there's plenty of louder things on the road...like choppers (bikes), construction (jack hammers), traffic (honking), and exotics (occasional V12 supercar).

The sports are not too loud, so unless you live in CA where they are illegal, I would look no further.

I've been thinking the EXACT same thing for months now.

I know the Sport isn't obtrusively loud and that both it and the Touring are drone free. But I'm also looking for a sound that sits in between the Sport and the OEM exhaust.

It's just hard for me to justify spending almost $700 for ANY exhaust (LMR has the FRPP Touring for $670), much less just an axle back. Corsa has their drone free Sport for $584, but it seems it's on the sound level of the Sport.

What to do: the quieter FRPP Touring for $670 or the louder & less expensive $584 Corsa.

Finger on the trigger, but still undecided ...

Thanks for that video! I could hear NO popping when he revved it sitting still, which can be heard with the Sport version. That's what I wanted to know.

Be careful with your comparison though... the popping is a natural characteristic of the 2011+ Mustang however, the automatics have noticeably less popping than the manual, even it in their stock form... so if it was a video of the FRPP Touring on an automatic car, it might not mean anything if your looking to do the same mod on a manual car.

I can't see the vid at my office which is why I wasn't sure.

The axleback systems for our cars do not "create" the pop, they only emphasize it, but again this is more drastic on manual than on auto... my father and I did a side by side comparison last time I was in town and his is a stock auto with stock exhaust, it pops... but you have to rev it hard, and even then it's very faint.

In the vid, he revs it in park, no popping as it winds down, but he doesn't rev it very high like they do on most of the Sport vids.

Cost was a huge factor for me! So I went on CL and found a great deal on a barely used set of Borla Touring axlebacks. If you don't mind used there are deals to be had!

Yeah that's a good point, it can't hurt to always look online for deals before jumping into a $600-$700 investment.

In reality, to most... if not all FRPP owners, the cost was only a variable before purchase... apon installation, the cost factor goes out the window, quality is worth money IMO.

You are correct, sir.

I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I'm gone.

For the record, that's from ickebins who posted it back in this thread.

He is the only one I know of who actually installed and recorded the FRPP Tourings on the 2011+ V6...

<cue dramatic conspiracy music>

Only to disappear and never post again...

<music escalates>








Ok. He did post a couple more times about MyColor. But that that doesn't work for drama.

Short version: On video, the FRPP Touring sound identical to the FRPP Sport...just quieter.

We just need someone who has actually heard both in person to confirm that.

If you don't care about the difference in sound, the Corsa is the obvious choice. It's just that everyone wants the FRPP sound, but without the FRPP price.

Ain't that the truth!

I'm still undecided though, as I'd like to keep my car all Ford parts if I can.

For some reason, I just can't decide yet which way to go ...

Corsa makes a good product, they were one of the systems I very seriously debated on before my purchase... and not for nothing it seems like far fewer people have them, giving you more "uniqueness" if you care about that sort of thing.

I still stand behind the FRPP Sports, which I think by now goes without saying, but if you really are in a financial bind (why would you be buying exhaust in the first place.... but that's a different story) than the $500+ Corsa is probably a rock solid kit to go with.

Not in a financial bind, just watching how I spend my $$.

When I was racing Stangs when I was younger, if a product didn't make the car go faster it wasn't going on my car.

But that was then ... LOL
