Any opinions on the BTG single exhaust? what is the diff between the single exhaust and the GT-Turbo stage 1 with the catback kit?

I had the 2 1/4" BTG axleback single exhaust and I loved it. Loved the sound, the pops and gurgles. The only reason I got rid of it is because I needed a 2 1/2" catback exhaust for when/if stage 2 comes out so I now have the 2 1/2" Heartthrob catback single exhaust system. The 2 1/4" stock system works well with the BTG axleback exhaust and stage 1. I liked it. I think since the stock catback system and the BTG catback system are both 2 1/4" then you would be wasting your money for the BTG catback. Just get the axleback. Now the BTG is a bit louder on a N/A PT so if it's too loud for you then you can always get a resonator installed. If you want better exhaust flow then get a 2 1/2" single catback system. Besides Heartthrob there are several out there.

OK, the "GT-Turbo stage 1" is louder on the NA. what is louder? I had a 66 mustang and my ears would ring after a 45 minute drive at 80mph. Is that how loud the stage one will be or is it just "definetly noticable"?

Inspite of the advertising claims the BTG axle/back is LOUD with or without the turbo. If you like a loud exhaust then the BTG should meet your needs fine. However, if LOUDNESS is not "your cup of tea" then plan on installing a resonator or purchase another exhaust system which is quieter. If unsure, you might want to listen to the GT exhaust which has the BTG system--then decide.

Good luck.

The BTG Single Axle-Back has a nasty drone between 70-75mph for about 1000-1500mi. After that it mellows out quite a bit.

Haven't heard the cat-back specifically so can't comment on it.

That's strange. Mine never "mellowed out" and I had about 6,000 miles on it. I'm not doubting you, it's just that the drone never went away on my car. I ended up swithing over to the Mopar/Borla duals. No more drone.

No offense taken mate. I've heard a few folks say the same. I just know it was bad enough that it gave me a headache and made my ears ring on the first 5 hour drive at highway speeds not to mention it was nigh on impossible to have a conversation, now it's gravy.

What do you think of this?
I'm planning to adjust my BTG cat-back to end just below the rear hanger on the drivers side in front of the rear wheel.This will only use the resonator and an S pipe and exhaust tip. My only worry is just how LOUD will it be.Any ideas on this project?
