Installation was pretty straightforward though I did have a bit of trouble with that spot weld holding the bracket to the stock exhaust. The Ford Racing exhaust sounds awesome. It has a deep, throaty, growl thats not overpowering yet sounds 1000% better than stock. I'd say the sound is reminiscent of Borla (and rumor has it that Borla may have made the axleback for Ford Racing). The cost was very reasonable. The parts department at my local Ford dealer sold it to me for $195. Retail on it is $235 though I noticed that a guy on eBay was selling them for $210.
