MRT unleashes 2011-12 Ford Mustang GT axle back exhaust

It i’s no secret one of the first modifications nearly every Ford Mustang owner completes is exhaust work–be it a cat-back, axle-back, hi-flowing mid pipe, headers, or the sort.  Hey, Ford–not that you did a bad job with the factory tailpipe melodies produced, it’s just there are just SO many awesome combinations of acoustic awesomeness out there on the aftermarket, and people LOVE to have their Mustang stand out from the masses.

Fresh up this week from the folks at MRT is a fantastic new exhaust system for the 2011 Ford Mustang and the 2012 Ford Mustang.  The MRT Interceptor Axle Back Exhaust System was, like the rest so dubbed, designed in-house & produced in the USA, achieving a quality product that’s a total point of pride.  These Mustang exhaust systems feature 304 stainless tubing, are mandrel-bent for maximum flow, and are capped off with 304 stainless steel mufflers, ensuring this system will last for years to come.

2011 Ford Mustang GT takes flight

Ever thought about how a Ford Mustang would turn out from a free fall?  Would it nail the dismount?  What’s the chance this pony car might land on its feet?  Actually, the chances here are pretty good for both…albeit serious damage ensued shortly after the 2011 Mustang GT took flight.

Across the pond in Lugano, Switzerland, the owner of this 2011 Mustang GT mistakenly drove off the 3rd floor of a parking garage, ending the life of his trusty steed.  By the misfortune of selecting 1st gear instead of reverse, he promptly propelled the 2011 Mustang through the concrete barrier, landing down below after a few rotations.

2011 Mustang & 2012 Mustang transmission scrutinized

What do you get when you cross the 2011 Ford Mustang and the 2012 Ford Mustang and a 6-speed transmission made in China?  An official investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration based upon numerous customer complaints, that’s what.  Well over two-dozen Mustang owners have officially vented filed their frustrations about unexpected inability to shift into gear on the 2011 Mustang and the 2012 Mustang, regardless of power plant (the commonality: the 6-speed manual gearbox).

What’s the basal impact here?  26,000 units, covering model years 2011 and 2012 of the Ford Mustang.  The government involvement and consumer backlash impact could deal a resounding blow to the Blue Oval; not what we wanted to hear on the eve of ‘Barackalypse Now’, guys.  Detroit has had its fair share of bad PR in the past few years–this one isn’t helping matters much…

July 2011 Ford Mustang sales posted

Like any cyclical market, the Ford Mustang sales trend follows suit with the adage “what goes up must come down” … and so on we go.  July’s final sales have been finalized, letting the June (2011 peak thus far) excitement down a bit amidst a continually downtrodden economy.  Add in a dash of triple-digit weather across most of the nation for nearly 40 days (and counting) and it’s not too hard to wonder why no one wants the 6-hour chess & tennis match of a dealership experience…new Ford Mustang or not.
