i love it. it makes the whistle more noticable.definately worth it. only took me 30 minutes including removal, taking off the foil, stripping the adhesive off, cleaning the boots and reinstalling. i used a industrial stripper from lowes. used a plastic putty knive to spread it on and about 10 minutes later scraped it off. then just used brake cleaner on a towel to clean it up and was done.

Probably not makin that much noise since he's got stock exhaust still. When he puts that crazy 5" on it's gonna be a dang airport back there.

I stand corrected, but yes once it is exhaling nicely you'll be pi$$ing people off quickly! :icon_ford: That's the fun though right?

Very clean truck. I've never heard of Mothers' Back to Black. Is it made for the black plastic, such as door handles and tow mirrors?

yes i got it at autozone. when you wipe it on you can actually see the black like oxidization that it removes. you let it sit till dry and then scrub with a clean cloth. brought back my faded door handles pretty good.

Mothers Back to Black is great! I love it. Nice looking rig!

And on a side note, is that a fox in the garage? Looking nice as well.

Nice. I love a mustang family!

You can't beat the look of a clean fox mustang IMO. They just have a timeless design.
Plus the take to mods like a fish in water lol.

Put that DIY intake on it and you will be amazed at what your truck sounds like. from inside, not too impressive. but out side is another story. For the first time ever i was outside my truck (sitting in the bed) and my GF was moving the truck (maybe 1 to 4 MPH) and every time she hit the go pedal to move a little it sounded SWEET!!! i can not think of what it will sound like when i get the 5 inch exhaust! try it out.

another thing you might consider, put a wicked wheel on there. it will help surge and also people say its louder. i think i need one. if i really get on it at 50 ish in od the boost climbs fast and then my turbo starts making this strange almost barking or a seal noise (like ort ort ort).

Have someone drive it away from you and check it out. its pretty cool sounding. now if there was a way to put a mute button on the whine i would be all over the foil delete and a ww and no muffler. i like the sound but when i roll up the window i want it to be quiet when the family is heading out with me. then hook it up to something and listen to that turbo scream!

OK so now I got it, I had my brother go outside while I hit 10psi at 40mph and let off right by the house (had to hurry there was a schoolbus behind me!) I asked how it sounded and he said "Pretty much like it did before, only LOUD. It was louder than the bus behind you!" woohoo! :boldblue:
