In our last post, we took a look at the axleback fabrication process. Now that our prototypes are on the GT and ready to rock, it is on to testing! While we were not expecting much in the power department out of these exhaust options, we still wanted to see how they sound on the dyno. Mishimoto’s Mustang Axleback Exhaust – … Continue Reading ››
Last time we wrapped up our resonator-delete testing, and with that component good to go, we’re on to our next conquest, axleback exhausts. If you have not had a chance to take a look at our resonator deletes check out our blog posts HERE.
Axleback FabricationAny living, breathing car enthusiast knows that the exhaust is an important modification for modern muscle. Most owners want to rid themselves of the stock sound and let their pony car be heard right out of the gate. Being s550 owners ourselves, we want to hear the unrestricted growl of the Coyote in our GT, … Continue Reading ››
In our last post, we wrapped up the fabrication of our X- and H-pipes. Now that we have some excellent looking prototypes, it is time to put them to the test. We are not expecting much in the way of power with this modification; however we still want to give these resonator deletes the rundown for sound benefit.
TestingIn addition to testing for any power increase we may see with our resonator delete, we will be testing our three different X-pipe designs to … Continue Reading ››
Last time we took a look at what went into creating the jig for our Mustang H-pipe. This same process will be applied to create a jig for our Mustang X-pipe designs. We have plans laid out to create three different X-pipe designs to test on the Mustang GT. It is interesting that the same jig will be used for each of the three X-pipe designs. This is possible because the section that is changing between each X-pipe is the actual X in the center of the pipe. The jig’s job is to ensure that the piping coming both into and … Continue Reading ››
After coming up with a game plan we were ready to tackle the first portion of the Mustang GT exhaust, the resonator. We began this exhaust project a bit differently than projects in the past, we began with the waterjet. How, you might ask, are we going to produce a prototype made of piping on the waterjet? We’re not! To save time and improve accuracy, we will use a jig to create the first prototype H-pipe and X-pipes. Our hopes are that they will provide more precise prototypes that need less revision, therefore saving time. We will also use the same jig for … Continue Reading ››
