The factory sound from the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT is already pretty tremendous, but for those looking for a bit more auditory sensation – not to mention a performance boost – companies like Corsa Performance and Kooks Exhaust are ready to help.
This video from the latter offers us the chance to hear what a full Kooks exhaust setup sounds like on the 5.0-liter Coyote V8, and it’s quite a different character from that offered by any Corsa kit we’ve heard. Granted, apart from the typical axle-back or cat-back equipment, the Mustang convertible depicted in this video has also been given specialized headers and an x-pipe.
It also happens to be boasting an aerodynamic and performance package from Roush, although that package doesn’t touch on any engine upgrades.
Love the noise? That’s too bad, because all those Kooks exhaust components are going to cost you a sizeable chunk of change. Kooks’ stainless long-tube headers, for instance, start at just over $1,800, while the company’s x-pipe and exhaust kit is priced at just under $1,500. That said, we’re not sure how much torque and power might be unlocked with a full Kooks exhaust setup, but it’s likely substantial.
After all, Kooks Exhaust has been in business since 1962. If they haven’t figured out the art of exhaust-tuning yet, we’ll be a monkey’s uncle.
