Mid life crisis car

Hi my name is Ray. I just purchased a 2006 GT. The smile hasn't left my face in four days. What a fun car to drive

Yes it is. That why I wanted to introduce myself. Wanted some advice on mods that are really worth the money. I sound pretty good stock but is an exhaust system worth the cost

Oh yes without a doubt it is! I personally love the FR500S exhaust on the cars but it can be loud when going pedal to the metal. Sounds fantastic though, but that is just me. It all depends on what kind of sound you are looking for.

I like the Bullitt mufflers. They are fairly subdued at startup and at idle but they really open up when you step on the gas plus they are 50 state street legal which is nice so no troubles with the cops.

It is just the muffler, loosen the clamps and you should be able to pull the mufflers right out from the hangers. There are a few videos on Youtube by CJ Pony Parts that shows the procedure basically in case you are curious. I would say it would take about 2 hours or so if it is your first time and you are taking it easy. Youtube is a great resource for getting an idea on how different mufflers sound.

Congrats on the new toy. We all need one. Welcome to TMS. I am sure the members here will help you spend your money. Gets to be an addiction, so many mods, so much fun.

Look at the Roush exhaust. I am pretty sure they make one that fits the 06. If you want a good rumble that you can still talk to your passengers while cruising. Has great tone. Loud when you put your foot in it, but a great rumble when not. Love mine!

Good choice. Keep your stock axel backs in case you want to switch back at times.

Nice car! I'm not sure what I want for a midlife crisis car. Being only 50, I haven't reached midlife yet.
