FRPP exhaust details please!

OK after hearing the FRPP exhaust on a v6 mustang I think it sounds the best. Hopefully its not obnoxiously loud for DD around town. I was looking for a throatier sound without the excessive loud volume. If these end up being a bit loud I figure I can always throw on some resonators? perhaps 12" wont kill the sound but refine it? anyone do this?

Only issue now is that the FRPP exhausts cost $669 which is up there in the price column for similar axlebacks. however others offer 304 SS tips which the FRPP's have but others also state that the muffler bodies and pipes are also stainless. FRPP web site does not state if the muffler body is stainless??? anyone know? also, does anyone know what the warranty on these are from Ford? Lastly, do these go on sale at all? where can I get the best price? got to watch the pennies if I am to also do CAI down the line. any advice? I would be greatful. thanks.

They are produced by Borla, have a year warranty, and putt putting around town in sixth they are barely audible inside, but they come alive when you mash on it. I think I paid right around 600 shipped from American Muscle after discounts I had.

Also, us forum members get a discount through AM. You just have to have at least 50 posts and get in touch (pm) with an AM rep here on the forum such as Dan Bailer.

I seriously doubt you'll need to add bigger resonators than stock unless you end up getting an x pipe later on.

I fairly positive they are stainless, and I think the warranty is a 1 year warranty if I remember correctly. But, if I were you and I wanted the best sounding mufflers for these cars, I would just buy these and never look back. As long as you stay out of it these stay pretty tame also, so driving around town isn't an issue. And the money issue, I don't believe I have ever seen them on sale and I wouldn't expect them to, but you've gotta pay for the best I've found out...

I thought so too but FRPP web site states pipes are stainless and tips are 304 polished and chromed stainless. sais nothing about the muffler chambers??? only reason I ask is chambers looks slightly different color than the rest of the setup. If they are completely stainless than I could understand the comparative price to borlas and corsa ect.

Being made by Borla I would expect Borla quality. You could always call and ask I guess to be sure.

I thinl it was like 6% or something around that. But you gotta get to posting so you can hit that 50 post count. They just want to be sure you're an active member, which I'm sure you will be! I believe AM has a subforum on here. Hit that 50 posts and give one of the reps a pm! We ourselves can't give out the code because that could screw things up for everyone.

I can tell you that whatever steel used for the actual mufflers is pretty hard stuff. Bent a drill bit making a weep hole lol

I have FRPP sports. By looking at them, I know they are stainless steel. What kind, I don't know. They have been on my car for nearly 2 years, with no signs of corrosion. Sound is as good as it gets with a V6 IMO.
As for cost, yes they are expensive, but they do what they are intended to do with no guess work.
I got mine at American Muscle when they were on sale. and I also got the forum discount. You can watch their site for sales, or just go and buy them. Either way, well worth it.

I was on the fence between the FRPP Touring and the Borla Touring and ended up going with the Borla Touring. Even with Short tube headers and a FRPP Xpipe you can barely hear them going down the road and they are not obnoxious under throttle either.

The case is stainless but not the same grade as the piping. Theyre very well made.

I read about them filling with water and people having to drill weep holes. No big deal as I plan on doing this. can anyone please tell me diameter of drill holes and exactly where it should be drilled? will drilling these void the warranty?


Glad to hear its stainless. thanks everyone for all of the help.

last question... if borla makes these for ford than can anyone tell me... do the FRPP sound like the borla touring or the s-type??? or somewhere in between? does anyone know? You tube vids indicate the touring seems a bit more quiet than the FRPP and s-type a bit louder than the FRPP. do I have the correct read?

409 grade stainless is for general use, often used for pipes, it has a different composition than 304 which is for show. Its common to see muffler housings out of 409 along with pipes, and the tips out of 304 stainless. To be honest even aluminized steel is better than plain old school steel pipes =)

Resonators do not quiet things down that much rather than alter the flow of sound. For example putting 12" resonators on Borla Ataks will not exactly quiet it down much, especially if you weld them just before the mufflers, but if you weld them after the cats further down there would be a little more impact. You would have to go with a much longer resonator to alter the volume any meaningful level though 18" or greater and even then it will really only alter higher rev range sound more than volume. (do not get me wrong some decrease in volume will happen but it will be shaped more than decreased in tone.)

I just took an 1/8 inch bit I believe and drilled it in the lower part of the end towards the engine. And with just the 1 year warranty I'd rather drill the hole and keep the water out than worry about warranty.

Why don't you leave the stock system in place and just have some adjustable electronic exhaust cut outs installed.....You would save considerable money, and you can then control the amount of sound you wish for various occasions and neighborhoods.......best regards Plum
