Hey guys, looks like I waited too late. I have searched everywhere, but nobody has these exhaust systems in stock and AM, Jegs and several others replied back saying this part is now discontinued from Ford! Does anyone know where these might still be available or what exhaust do you guys recommend for a 2008 GT500? I dont want red-neck loud but definitely want her to rumble
Thanks Guys!

For the 07-09, I recommend Roush Extremes... they are excellent with zero drone!

got them 2 years ago and like them.
apparently not easy to find anymore, not unlike much of the 2007-09 stuff. .
fwiw, these are the same as orig equipment on the kr.
keep an eye on ebay, etc, no real wear and tear on a muffler as long as they are cosmetically fine.

Yeah KR mufflers have always been hard to find / finally discontinued. Best sounding for 07-09 IMHO. I have em on both my 500 and GT

I wonder if the Borla type S is the same as the FR500S. They do appear to be very similar. I wonder if Borla or some other manufacture manufactured these for Ford? If I cant find the FR500S, I am looking at the Roush extremes, both the cat-back and the axle back systems. Does anyone else have a suggestion on a killer GT500 exhaust system. I just dont want a system with drone.
Thanks,
Tony

The best sounding setup is highly dependent on year, which you don’t have listed. Please click your upper right avatar/account settings/vehicle details and enter your car year. It then shows under your screen name, which helps in conversations here. We cover multiple years of the GT500 on this forum.

Borla-S for 11/12 and Roush Extremes for 07-10.

When we click on a thread, it takes us to the bottom of the thread. Then we have to scroll to find what year the OP is referring to. It works mucho-betta if everyone has their car year next to their avatar so we instantly know the applicable vehicle year without having to go search for it, which can be on a different page.
