From the moment we heard the Shelby GT350â€™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.
Thatâ€™s right, the Kooks crew has been hard at work developing a new exhaust system on Hi-Po Joe Charlesâ€™ 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 companyâ€™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 canâ€™t wait to see what kind of performance this Kooks exhaust unleashes from the Voodoo 5.2-liter.
