Any aftermarket exhaust options?


Mar 28, 2019

I like a louder sound on my sports cars. The turbos mute a lot of the sound on the NFGT. Has anyone experimented with a custom/aftermarket exhaust or removing the muffler altogether and having by pass pipes put in? The turbos and cats would muffle the sound a lot so that it would not be obnoxious. Anyone heard of anything out there?

The Titanium exhaust is about to become the only exhaust available! Is it a rumor or not?

I wouldn't be surprised if in a year or 2 Ford Motorsport will release an aftermarket straight pipe track option for the NFGT just like it did for the 05/06...but I'm speculating. It sure would be nice if someone did it...

After speaking with the concierge he said the titanium exhaust is not any louder than the standard NFGT exhaust, it is just lighter. He said some claim it has a slightly different note due to the titanium but if you are looking for a significant change or any real change in sound, the titanium exhaust wont do that.

I thought I read Heffner was working on one?
DBK would know if so

true-- the Titanium exhaust system sounds NO DIFFERENT than the base system.
I had the base system on my car for 5000 miles and converted to Titanium a few weeks ago . Have driven 500 more miles with titanium and there is no difference.

Ron - I am at 5600 miles on the ODO.
It has been a very cool/cold and WET spring as you know .
I don't think I will achieve my goal of 10,000 by the end of this season.
take care,

I have a prototype Borla Titanium X-pipe . It has a deeper throatier sound that the stock Muffler. Borla is working on some after market systems as we speak.20171113_091005.jpg20171113_132352.jpg20171115_181803.jpg

Stock Muffler is : 31.4 lbs
Factory TI muffler : 19 lbs
X-pipe was around 7lbs before it was insulated.
