Had the resonator delete installed by Trent Musser at Sonoma Raceway. Here is the end result when Compared against a stock GT500 that happened to be lurking in the neighborhood. Pretty painless install.

Looks awesome and thanks for sharing.

On a side note, dont think I've ever seen a rear pumpkin look like it's on life support with so many connectors out of it, lol.

Is the delete the same for the 350 and the 500?

looking at Lethal’s site, part looks the same, price is the same, install is described as the same, but different part numbers.

@Tob ?

GT350 has a 2.5" diameter inlet and a 2.75" outlet.

Factory resonator sections for reference (inlets). GT500 on left, GT350 on right.

Lethal's delete pipe(s) has to match each. Note, the GT500 and the GT350 use the exact same resonators. The "X" sections are unique to each however.

Looks and sounds great. Honestly, if I had a factory GT-500 exhaust I'd be happy. It sounds very nice IMO. The Lethal resonator delete sounds a bit more raspy in Sport mode. How does each sound from the driver's seat.

Great video. Just what I was looking for to better compare Lethal's kit to the OEM. It's great having all of those modes available. Quiet when you want it that way, and progressively louder/nastier as you go up through the Modes. After seeing your video, I can see it's a nicer/better setup.

T the amount of data you possess never ceases to amaze. When you get the car out for a drive i have to get your opinion on it.

The OEM exhaust is great. I was personally after some of that GT350 snap crackle and pop. This gets closer. Tob’s video highlights it best from inside
Any performance gain with this?
I think you pick up a few ponies for sure. Lethal performance has a video on it that Tob posted above.

It's nice that Ford did such a great job on the OEM exhaust. Again, I like how the Lethal exhaust sounds from the inside. In any of the modes.
