California Residents: Proposition 65 Warning
Novice skill is required for this installation.
Shawn: How's it going guys. Shawn Gibson, Gibson Exhaust. We've been manufacturing exhausts for over 27 years. We're enthusiasts of our products. We spend a lot of time playing with our toys out in the desert, at the track, and when the new 2015 Mustang came out we knew we had to have our hands on it. We knew there's a lot of room to grow and a lot of room for improvement too. That's why we introduced this system right here.
Bill: Okay, tell us about this. What makes this system special? What's it going to fit?
Shawn: Well, anybody that's driven a Mustang with a stock exhaust knows it needs a voice, right, so we spent a lot of time making sure we gave this thing the proper voice. We wanted it to have some personality. When you step on it people knew you bought that GT with that 5.0.
Shawn: You took the Mustang game and the power serious. We started off with a 3 inch X-pipe. We moved this x-pipe really forward close to the cats, ‘cause we wanted to capture that exhaust as it's coming out of those cats as fast as it possibly can. We want it to collide, we want it to speed up, and we want it to actually get that stuff to tumble and some of our mufflers to do two things. We wanted it to manage interior drone, but at an idle we want this thing to just growl, per se.
Bill: So it's going to have that tone not even when you're on it, just sitting at idle.
Shawn: Exactly. I mean for like when you're at the car shows cruising around, you want it to sound kind of mean, you want it to sound like a V8. You want it to have a good tone.
The beauty of this thing is when you're cruising these very minimal drone but when you step on it, I mean when you're getting on the freeway to pass that semi-truck you want to get in front of because you don't want to get behind to get rock chips on it, I mean that semi is going to know you put your foot down to the ground and you're taking off. The additional 30 horsepower this thing creates to the ground is definitely going to help you get past that truck.
Bill: Tell me about the materials. What's the finish on this system?
Shawn: Well this particular one right here is a stainless steel system. It's a 400 grade stainless steel, and it's 16 gauge with a black ceramic coated finish on the rear portion of the exhaust. You've got 4.5 inch double walled stainless 304 tips that are also ceramic coated. This system is guaranteed for life against anything on it.
Bill: One of the things I like about Gibson, you guys make everything, right? This is all in-house? All USA made.
Shawn: Everything is 100% made in the USA. We build it in Southern California, including our tips, our hangers, mufflers, everything is. We put our last name on everything we build and we can only feel comfortable standing behind the products we can make inside our manufacturing plant.
Bill: With the larger pipes on this, what about convertible fitment? I know a lot of people are going to ask, hey will it fit my convertible as well?
Shawn: The conversable, unfortunately, had some differences in it than the regularly fastback, but we do have a system available for the convertible that will fit from 15 to 17.
Bill: Okay, and the same thing available, in the black finish. You have a polish tip version as well.
Shawn: It's the same exact thing just different configurations, a little more tight to get it up around some of the frame supports and stuff, but yes we do have it for the convertible as well.
Bill: Okay. Let's get started with the install.
For this install, a lift or jack and jack stands, 3/8" ratchet, 13mm socket, 15mm socket, 9/16" socket, and a 9/16" wrench.
Now our GT had an aftermarket exhaust on it so we already removed that. We have plenty of instruction on how to do that. Then Shawn's going to take us through how to install a Gibson exhaust.
Shawn: How's it going guys. All right, well first things first, we're going to grab out X-pipe and make sure to go grab those instruction manuals in the top drawer, I know that's where they seem to always fall is in the top drawer of your toolbox. Make sure you look at them, take out all your parts, lay it out on the ground and compare it to our instruction manual to make sure you've received all the correct parts. We do our best to make sure you're going to get everything you need, to make sure the parts are going to fit, but we are human sometimes we make mistakes so please double check before you start tearing everything down that you have all the right part, all your part numbers matchup.
Bill: The nice thing with your system I saw is literally its three pieces. It's two clamps and three pieces, so there's not a lot of different pieces you've got to worry about aligning up or anything like that.
Shawn: There's not a whole bunch of work to get this thing sounding right and performing right. I mean, yeah, it's really slipped together. We're going to show you a little bit of a cheat way to put it on. We're going to slip it all together on the ground, make sure everything does fit, make sure we have all the right parts. But we're going to then literally just throw it up on there. Tighten it all down. Check for clearances. Make sure it comes out the cut out perfect. We'll have this thing fired up in no time.
Bill: Sounds good.
Shawn: Let's take these muffler assemblies, slide them together. Once they've slid together I'm going to have you, with the big arms, try to grab the rear end and I'm going to guide this ship up in here.
Bill: Sounds good.
Shawn: All right, guys, before we throw this thing up there, when you removed your factory sets you probably pulled these ... I guess we'll call these the mid to front rear hangers. You're going to slide them on our hangers, which all, all of our hangers are utilized to factory OEM connections so there's not need to, if you remove them for the install, make sure you put them back in cause our exhaust is going to go right back into them.
We're going to slide these back into place. Make sure the hooks are facing forward otherwise you'll be taking them back off and be doing things twice. Now that we got that on there, let's grab the rear muffler assembly and let's throw it on up there.
Bill: Ready to lift this?
Shawn: All right guys, get this thing up. Take these rear hangers, slide them back in there. Let me know when you guys got them in. All in? Okay. Now we're going to slide this thing, let's take this forward, get this clamp on there, so now everything is good. What we're going to do is we're going to slide this thing back and put it into position. You want to make sure you have good clearance off this rear disk.
As we tighten it, guys, we're going to put a little bit of tension on it, just kind of hold things in place. So you can see right here it's a little close, but we haven't tightened anything up. You can see there's movement still in this part. What we want to do is make sure when we tighten this thing up it's going to pull it the right direction, and make sure we don't go the opposite way.
Create some tension on the system. Make sure it doesn't go the other direction. Let's get this clamp up on here. Spin this thing up. I can at least grab this bottom one for right now, get it on there. This things locked in there. It's going nowhere now. Other than that you double check all your fitments, everything. The next thing you get to do is start it up.
Bill: Hi guys, here's that sound you've been waiting for. Shawn a Gibson is what you said it would be. It sounds really good. The nice deep tone at idle but as you get on it the sound definitely changes.
Shawn: Yeah, right on. If you're looking for an American made product, a good fitting system, and something that sounds like that you need to check out Gibson Exhaust. We'll stand behind it. We put our last name on all the parts that we make. If you ever have any problems, any questions, any concerns, anything you like or dislike about it, please call us at the shop. Reach out to us at 1-800-528-3044, we've got your back. We've got your back, guys, thanks for your time. This is the Gibson.
Bill: Installation is, as you saw, pretty straight forward. Probably no more than half hour, 40 minutes, be back on the road in no time.
