Kooks Custom Headers designed these factory-replacement, big-tube shorty headers to replace the factory Tri-Y manifolds on the current Mustang platform. Testing shows a solid horsepower and torque gain throughout the RPM band.

When it comes to the classic Flowmaster Sound, there’s more than just one muffler to choose from. From moderate to aggressive, Flowmaster has several mufflers to choose from and we performed a sound test on eight of them.

Which is the better car, a new Mustang GT or a new Camaro SS? While we’re not going to give our opinion on which one we like better, with help from host Jessica Barton, we took these cars to BBK Performance and threw the company’s most popular bolt-ons at them and ran them on the dyno after each step.

Corsa Performance Exhausts has developed the technology to reduce unwanted sound without robbing performance through their patented Reflective Sound Cancellation design. Here’s an inside look at how Corsa develops and manufactures their exhaust systems right here in the US.
Headers can help you make more power, but they can also bring it down. We aren’t experts in the exhaustive arts, so we called in some favors from some of the leaders in the header world. These guys are experts, and they schooled us in the science of headers.

Flowmaster, the leader in performance exhaust technology, recently developed two new axle-back exhaust systems designed for the popular new 2011 5.0L Mustang and we’ve set out to provide a sound comparison between these two differing yet similar systems that deliver that famous Flowmaster note.

We test three muffler kits on an S197 Mustang – The Hushpower axle-back system, utilizing the Hushpower “Pro Series” round mufflers; the American Thunder axle-back kit, utilizing the 40-series classic dual-chamber mufflers; and the American Thunder cat-back kit, using the 60-series Delta Flow mufflers.
It used to be that a diesel power plant was a requirement for towing with most Ford trucks. But with the introduction of the 5.4L Modular power plant, the Ford F150, F250, and Expedition got enough oats to tow, though still lacking to the diesel big brothers.

When it comes to adding a performance sound to a Fox body, it can be easy to get lost in the TONS of different kits out there. One name that has always come to mind is Flowmaster, and the famous sound and the 5-liter seem to go together like ice cream and chocolate. Now, Flowmaster has upped the ante, adding 409S Stainless Kits to their already impressive resume of products for the most popular muscle car in the world.
We’ve been Mustang enthusiasts for quite a while and have attended hundreds of Mustang events. That being said, we’ll venture a bet that one of the first performance modifications made by a Mustang owner is to install a set of Flowmaster mufflers on the new ride.
