Love the sound of the standard exhaust especially on cold start but compared to my mates '19 Mustang it's so quiet ! Lol so thinking of going for the downpipe replacement and keeping the standard exhaust - so looking for advice and recommendations.

Thanks in advance, cheers - Leo
Hi leo,
If your buddy has a GT, you should never compare the sound of both engine. They are different in every way.

Downpipe will increase sound. Its very noticeable and in my opinion not too much. But different people have different tastes.

if you are worried it might be too loud, get the catted Active Autowerke 300 CEL pipe. It offer a nice sound balace between stock and catless
