I would like to make a decision by Friday so as many responses as I can get would be great.
Hogasswild is right, this IS something you should seriously consider as I myself am doing as we speak. I am still leaning towards Roush AB because of price, but I'm not ruling out this custom option either. To me magnaflow is too quiet, as are flowmasters.I know you said no welding, but let me recommend what I did which is similar to what PhillyLS1 did. Purchase two Pypes M-80 mid mount exhausts for $84 through AM, then order the tips of your choosing which could range in price from $20 to $100. Then you can have a local shop just cut out a section of the mid-pipe to install the mufflers, remove your old mufflers and weld in the tips. That should cost about $100 at a reputable place and only take about an hour.
The thing about this install is that it is not only less than half the price of Roush ABs or a Pypes catback, you get the sound you want and you lose nearly 40lbs in the process. Also, if for whatever reason you do not like this set up, it doesn't interfere with installing a bolt on kit later since you aren't touching any of the joint connections.
You can spend a little extra by getting resonated tips and that will help accentuate the lower tone and remove some of the popping associated with many of the aftermarket exhausts.
Also, once the new parts are broken in, there is no drone. At least with 3.31 gears.

I would like to hear them.
They may not be obnoxious, annoying, or sound like fart cans, but they sound great at idle and at engine revving - and they add HP at the wheels.Dynomax is practically the same as stock IMO.
Sounds great Philly! If it were me I'd swap out tips to alleviate the popping. But that's the thing about exhaust everybody likes it different.YouTube - PhillyLS1's 2011 Mustang V6 Premium Mandrel Bending Solutions FullBoar Exhaust System
This is mine. It's in a thread below.
The poping in the video doen't happen during driving, but I like it lol. A simple tip exchange would fix it.
You can adjust your exhaust to you! And that's the beauty of all of it. On top of saving moolah Having a unique sound is worth a little elbow grease to me.
That's what sold me on them. Hope to have them on by weeks end.They may not be obnoxious, annoying, or sound like fart cans, but they sound great at idle and at engine revving - and they add HP at the wheels.
I'm not saying they are bad. I'm just saying they were too quiet for me lol.That's what sold me on them. Hope to have them on by weeks end.
