Shelby Turbo (Borla Touring) Muffler Install


Recommended Posts

I have ordered a set of these mufflers from Shelby Performance:

 

http://www.ShelbyStore.com/product-p/11752.htm

 

 

Today I removed the old mufflers; pics can be seen below. The driver side muffler is 3 or 4 years old (warranty replacement when original muffler rear hanger broke); the passenger side is an original, 5 to 6 years old (hanger also broke). The difference in quality between the two is obvious, especially w/ respect to the rear hanger / weld.

 

When I get the new Borlas installed I'll post more pics, including before / after sound vids.

I'm ready to install 'em on the weekend immediately after I get 'em! Also with the old mufflers off I've been cleaning and detailing the underside/rear half of the SGT. I did the same to the front when I installed the brake duct kit. She's gonna look and sound spiffy in the spring!

UPDATE

 

The mufflers would have been delivered today, but I can't take off work to sign for them (the signature -required thing is a PITA - wish the Shelby Store allowed opt-out)...so, I'm having FedEx hold them and I'll have to drive the 16 mile round trip tomorrow morning to pick them up. Well at least ill have an excuse to take the 5.0 for a spin....

OK, I picked up the mufflers from FedEx (P.I.T.A) and got them installed!

 

Here is a link to some pics....I'll have better exterior rear views when I can get the SGT out of the garage. Also, in case your are interested in such, the Borla's shave over 4 lbs off the rear end of the car.

Also, here are before and after videos - taken by iPhone so not the best sound quality - but I think you can hear the throatier growl of the Borla's as opposed to the more raspy Ford Racing. You can also see that I cleaned up the rear chassis a bit when I had everything out of there....

Working on all kinds of shipping changes at SPP. Choose your speed, opt-out of "Signature Required", etc... Not easy, but long-overdue, in my opinion.

An excellent plan! My wife might then be more likely to buy me things....

wow.....shelby is offering a tremendous price reduction on these, and I just ordered a set. Once I went to an off road x pipe system on my 07 gt500, my corsa mufflers were way too loud, so I put the oem mufflers (same as on a gt auto) back on...so now its too quiet. Decided to go with a set of these a while back, and was just waiting to save up the money. I also obtained a KR-like h pipe from phrp....so hopefully will find a happy middle ground with a bit deeper sound. FYI....the shelby touring muffler is actually the borla touring muffler, which is the equivalent of the ford racing SVT1 muffler......all have a list price of about $750 and typically sell for about $600 or so....that $339 price is very good.
