Anyone done this mod? I’m thinking of having a pair installed on my 17 gt. How did you have the wiring for power? How much did you pay for installation? How far down did you have them installed?

Are you thinking of the Ford OEM setup, or an aftermarket kit? I honestly have no idea how the OEM setup is configured but I could imagine it would be difficult to install into a car that doesn’t have the provisions for it, although I could be completely wrong! Plus the OEM kit isn’t actually cut outs...they’re more like adjustable baffles. I thought about putting an aftermarket kit in my 2004 Mach, but I just got rid of it, replaced with a 17 GT Premium. For a stock setup it’s very nice but it’s definitely not the tone I had in the Mach 1 with a Magnaflow midpipe and catback system. It would be nice to go from to with the flip of a switch. Needless to say I’m following this thread...

I’m talking about an aftermarket kit that completely bypasses the mufflers. When I bought the car it had both the resonator and mufflers removed. It sounded vicious even at idle but I wanted to be able to hear the stereo and not be a cop magnet. Now it has a pair of Magnaflow mufflers and sounds fine. But after driving for a week with the old setup everything short of a gt350 sounds tame. I’m going to talk to a shop soon. I’ll keep you posted.
