2015+ Mustang Kooks Exhaust Install & Test
This is a great video to watch. The guys give helpful installation tips and that exhaust note is incredible!
Here’s what I picked up from the video:
- Kooks headers are expertly welded, contain scavenging spikes inside 3″ collectors, and use heavy stainless steel hangers
- A lift and proper tools will make the install job much easier
- You may have to remove other parts of the car to gain access for installation
- It’s best to assemble the back half of the exhaust system and install it as a single unit
- Remember, tighten the bolts after aligning the pipes
- Double-check to make sure everything is tight
- Enjoy 35 more ponies!
We found this video of a 2015 Mustang on the dyno, and the street after having a full Kooks ehxaust system -including headers, installed. The horsepower and sound are impressive from this bolt-on S550.
Kooks Headers Sound Clips
When you have one of the hottest, meanest rides in the neighborhood, it’s not enough to be seen.
You want to be heard.
Check out the incredible soundtrack coming from these modded Mustangs. It’s the only music you’ll want to listen to!
The Mustang Shelby GT350 has received metric tons of appreciation ever since it swiped us off our feet on the 2015 Detroit Auto Show floor, but certain aficionados explain the soundtrack of the muscle Ford is simply too raspy for them.
If you think the GT350 sounded good before, just wait until you hear it with long-tube headers and an X-pipe.
