    Exactly!! An exhaust has nothing to do with MFT or a window motor or a fluid leak so your bumper to bumper would not be void. The only thing that could be void as Peter said is if the exhaust directly causes a failure of the vehicle. Then that repair would not be covered but it can not void your entire warranty.

    I am after a hollow Flowmaster style rumble and not a high pitched whine or fart can Honda sound. No warranty voided except the catback from factory as we will be cutting and welding in new parts.

    We're going to need a video to hear this! Takes me right back to the 90s, you'd always know where there was another Stang nearby to run with...

    So true - running shorty headers, o/r hpipe and Super 44s on my 1992 LX Coupe with roller rockers...nothing beats that sound. ;) If I can get a fraction of the sound in the Explorer, I will be thrilled. I will post the results in a col weeks.

    ...And further more did changing the mufflers get rid of the exhaust smell in the cabin everyone's complaining about?

    make sure whatever model you get (flowmaster,etc) there isn't a drone at highway speeds. very common in many of the so called performance mufflers

    I changed mine and had them extend the tips about 3/4 of an inch. It didn't get rid of it completely but did knock it down about 80% from the stock terribly strong smell i had.

    Why not just plum in some electronic adjustable exhaust cutouts. The kind that really can be controlled as to how far open you can run them....You can have the best of all worlds, wide open for the strip or where appropriate, closed for the quiet neighborhood times, and anywhere in between for street use........No muffler cat back or otherwise system can give you the proper sound for different occasions.....And you can have it several ways for your driving, and the wife can have it her way also.....I settled on this and everybodys happy with the Mustang and it will work for the EXP also............. best regards Plum

    Looking for any input as to sound quality/ performance gains for Magnaflo/Flowmaster/Borla etc. exhaust installation. If so are there any videos where I can hear what they sound like! If you used Flow mast what is teh difference between all the different number series mufflers?

    hi Dr Plastic, Many other exhaust threads in addition to the one above in the "modified" section. Just go to the modified section and search on "exhaust, flowmaster, Magnaflow", etc.

    3k miles into the mod, I'm still very happy with my Magnaflows. I did the final mufflers for the sound bump only. No noticeable perf gain expected or realized with just final muffler swap.

    There are threads in this sub forum on after market exhaust systems. I don't know if the 2016 is any different than the previous model years except possibly for the exhaust tips.

    No, but as our site notes there is modification required because of the bumper shape change.
