Man, why didn't I see this until NOW?  That is one bad-ass FoMoCo MoFo!  What a beauty.  Enjoy the heck out of it!

Is your other car an Ecosport?

Thank you, the car is really awesome.  My daily driver is 2016 Mazda 6.

 The current 'Stang has been growing on me and my neighbor has a sharp looking black GT (albeit a tad loud at 1 AM) that's a stick as well.

My neighbor across the street has a modded '15-17---black, black wheels, rear window and side window louvers, a V6 w/ an aftermarket supercharger...every morning around 6 am---'braawwwwpppp' and again around 10pm..

Very sharp ride @ykX! Bonus points for the color choice and major bonus points for the six speed manual! The current 'Stang has been growing on me and my neighbor has a sharp looking black GT (albeit a tad loud at 1 AM) that's a stick as well.

It is loud, I feel even too loud, especially inside.  I kind of sorry mine doesn't have active exhaust option.  The Shelby I drove had it and it really works well.

So recently found out why my Mustang was so loud.  I realized that it was much louder than I remember from my test drive of a brand new one.  Looked under and realized the exhaust was aftermarket.  I guess a side effect of buying a car remotely.  The dealer who sold me was a Chevrolet dealer and they claim they didn't know.  It turns out it had Ford performance X-pipe, resonator delete and SLP straight pipes.  It sounded great from outside but it actually hurt my ears and killed the fun of driving it.  Had some bad resonance at low rpm.  Also, I live in the development and I don't want my neighbors hating me.

Luckily, plenty of young guys buy Mustangs, modify them and then sell OEM parts.  Found almost brand new full exhaust for my car and today installed it.  OMG so much better.  Still great throaty sound, not nearly as loud but it is fine with me.  I think Ford made one of the greatest sounding exhausts right out of the factory.  Now I can actually enjoy driving it without blood sipping from ears and my neighbors putting nails on my driveway.

Can't wait for the spring now.

That is so disappointing that you put the factory exhaust back on the car... 

Not to me, much more enjoyable with stock.  I really think the stock sounds awesome, not as loud as aftermarket but loud enough for me.
