Roush and Coyote, LOL LOL LOL
 
I had a previous thread on here about my '12 150 with the 5.0, and that noise maker Roush exhaust. The mechanic I used to install it, my time is VERY limited, has bailed on me. Oh well, he likes those vehicles that wear bowties anyway, and the goat worshipping crowd as well. I live in an area that no one works past 5:00 pm, unless you're a truckdriver, let alone on Saturday. I do go downstate on weekends when I can to visit my wife in the 'burbs of Detroit.
Does anyone know of a good exhaust shop down there, that could work with me on getting the drone on this thing reduced? Beechkid has been a lot of help, and I'd like to try his suggestions, but I just can't get the time. Seems you either have the time and no bucks, or the bucks and no time.
One thing I noticed about the Roush muffler, it's identical to the resonator that was removed when their system went on. Their system is a quality one with the fit and finish, but they really dropped the ball on calling that resonator a muffler.:-drink

Oh yeah!! It's painful enough gently accelerating up to speed.
I guess I should have mentioned that the shops I'm looking for would be in Southeast Michigan.:-drink

Did your shift pointes appear to have changed as well? Such as 4th gear on up seeming to shift very late, almost like you had it in towing mode? I know that sounds odd, but with the way all sorts of things relate to each other with the electronics on these engines, it has me wondering.

You can get a lid from 5star. It reduces the sound by 50% Might help
