SVE Axle Back Exhaust Kit
Improve exhaust flow and sound in your 2005-2010 Mustang with this SVE axle back exhaust kit! Your factory mufflers are restrictive and quiet. This prevents your engine from breathing freely as well as holds back the signature Mustang sound. SVE's axle back exhaust is built to improve on both of those problems with a free-flowing design. Featuring 100%, T304 stainless steel construction, this system is built to last! Mandrel bent, 2.5" tubing provides free flow going into the straight-through mufflers. Massive 4" exhaust tips are utilized to provide a great look coming out of your rear bumper! Finally, a mirror polished finish is used throughout to provide a show winning look!

Installation Note
-This kit utilizes stock rubber hangers for installation; no cutting/welding is required for installation.
