Re: best exhaust system for 08 shelby gt500

I'll be installing new Stillen Axlebacks this weekend. I'll let you know how they work out. I haven't heard of anybody using them on the GT-500 local to me but when I heard them on a SC'd GT they sounded amazing (and they are on sale right now!). I love the double wall beveled look which is what these are.

JBA sounds great too!
