From the moment we heard the Shelby GT350’s Flat-Plane-Crank, 5.2-liter engine at full song on Grattan Raceway last year, we knew it was the best-sounding stock Mustang yet. However, we couldn’t help but wonder what it would sound like with a set of long-tube headers. Now, thanks to Kooks Headers and Exhaust, that wait is over.
That’s right, the Kooks crew has been hard at work developing a new exhaust system on Hi-Po Joe Charles’ yellow GT350, and the company just put out an Instagram clip of the car revving and accelerating from a stop with the new exhaust. You can watch and listen here…
That sexy sound is courtesy of the company’s new 1 3/4- to 1 7/8-inch Step Headers, a pair of 3-inch Front Connection Pipes with Green Cats, and a 3-inch X-pipe mated to the factory axle-back exhaust. Yes, this sexy sound is produced through cats and the stock mufflers! We can’t wait to see what kind of performance this Kooks exhaust unleashes from the Voodoo 5.2-liter.
