Make Your Mustang GT Growl Like a Savage Shelby – Marketplace Finds
Rearmost exhaust section from the S197 Shelby Mustang GT500 is available in The Mustang Source marketplace.
The best way to add more rumble to the exhaust of your Ford Mustang GT is to replace the axle-back portion of the system, including the mufflers and the tips. There are scores of aftermarket options and with the help of a skilled exhaust technician, the options are endless, but the easiest option is to swap from the stock GT mufflers to the units from the Shelby GT500.
Fortunately, steevesj posted a set of S197 GT500 take-off mufflers in The Mustang Source marketplace, but they are located in Oregon, so getting them to you might require some legwork.
When the OP posted the mufflers from his now-sold Mustang, he provided a handful of pictures showing the items from every direction, as well as the basic details:
“2011 – 2014 Shelby GT500 Mustang Axle Back Mufflers. Part numbers F1-8214-L and F1-8214R. Left reads BR3V-5232-AJ, Right reads BR3V-5230-A. Jon. Meet in Gresham, Oregon”
The seller also included his phone number, which we have removed from this post, but as you can see in the images here, the exhaust components appear to be in great shape. The bright polished tips are spotless and while there is a bit of corrosion on the body of the mufflers, it is no worse than what we would find on the average street-driven car.
Finally, the clamps that connect these mufflers to the rest of the exhaust section appear to be included, so installing these on your S197 Mustang GT should be nice and easy.
The key downside to this for-sale listing is that the seller didn’t include a price. In looking around online, we found that you can buy this setup from an company like American Muscle for just over $400. We also found a handful of sale listings online and these mufflers in this condition tend to sell in the range of $200 to $250, shipped. This seller wants to meet to hand these mufflers over, so when you factor in the cost of shipping, the buyer should be able to score a deal here.
Of course, this is the best deal for someone who can drive to Gresham, Oregon, but if you know someone in the area who will pick up and ship these mufflers, this is a great chance to add some rumble to your Mustang GT.
