so I'm coming from a 12 mustang 5.0 which was a beast but now needed something more refined so went with a q50. I tested both Q60 and Q50. Q60 seems quite sportier but nothing crazy I'm 6'3 and didn't quite feel comfortable in the q60. Plus the coupes LCD is extremely outdated IMO. Now that I have the car I'm only thinking about mods. I was thinking about a custom muffler delete system and in the future some 20' vossen's. Do any of you have an exhaust system yet?

Stillen is the only exhaust out right now and you have plenty of sound clips in the forum if you do a quick search. Any pics of the mustang? I came from an 03 gt so the q50 is just as quick I couldn't imagine buying a slower car, the 5.0 is a beast it was one of the cars on my list when I got the q50.

I have the Stillen cat-back exhaust on my Q50 and it looks and sounds great. Smooth deep growl under hard acceleration and at lower rpms and while cruising it quiets down and it isn't loud or annoying. I think it's just right as far as volume and tone. It definitely gives the Q50 the exhaust note that it deserves, especially considering that I personally think the stock exhaust is too bland and muted, so the Stillen exhaust is a welcome upgrade. :cool:

Sounds nice,
Hopefully you have a video of it that way we can all check it out :)
As far as power gains.. Any improvement in throttle response?

Yes I did notice an improvement in both throttle response and overall acceleration. Nothing major but I definitely noticed an improvement. I also noticed a slight improvement in highway fuel economy, when I'm cruising steadily on the highway at around 65 mph I noticed about 1 mpg overall improvement on the highway, at least according to the average fuel economy reading inside the car.

Overall this is a great exhaust for the Q50, and I would recommend it to any Q50 owner who thinks just as I do that the stock exhaust sound is too muted and bland and is looking for something sportier-sounding but not too loud. I really have nothing even remotely negative to report on it. I like the looks, the sound, and the overall performance. :cool:

As for the video, I will have something on here by the end of next week at the latest.

I was given a V6 13 Mustang convertible for a rental as a "we're sorry" sort of thing and it was pretty awesome. People are kinda ambivalent about the new Mustang but I think it looks pretty good and I'd love to take a closer look at it.
