2011 Mustang GT Hushpower - Resonator Delete


Here's my 2011 Mustang GT with Flowmaster Hushpower Axlebacks and a resonator delete by a local muffler shop. Sorry for all of the background noise...it was a very windy day. I'll try to get a better video on an HD camcorder. There's no difference in sound volume at idle and cruising. You really hear the difference when revving and accelerating. It sounds a lot more throaty during acceleration.

There have been posts that removing the resonators makes the exhaust obnoxious, but if you notice, they have already removed their catalytic converters. Just removing the resonators increases the sound volume when revving and accelerating, but not nearly as much as removing the catalytic converters, and there is no issue with emissions/warranty. I have not noticed any increase in drone either.

Sounds good, but does anyome else find it amusing that he bought a 'hushpower' exhaust and is now modifying it to make it louder?

Amusing? no...I bought the hushpower because it was one of the highest rated axlebacks for the 5.0. I new when I bought it that it was not meant to be overly loud ("hush"power)...but it was too muffled for me. I came from a 2001 Mustang bullitt with an o/r x-pipe and super 44 flows. The hushpowers sound good in the car, but when you want to roll the windows down and hear it, there's not much volume and it gets quieter the higher the rpms. I just wanted to open it up a little...that's why I deleted the resonators and not the cats.

Now however, it just sounds like a glasspack muffler....which was my first impression of the hushpower when I got it, now just louder and more popping. An x-pipe might smooth it out, but I'm going to do it the right way and get a borla s-type catback.

Anyone interested in a slightly used set of hushpower axlebacks? Sounds great, just a little to quiet for me.
