Mustang Minute: Roush Performance Active Exhaust

rouhs-active-exhaust-2tt

There are literally hundreds of choices out there for modding the exhaust on your 2015 Mustang. Hundreds. But Roush Performance has a new active exhaust system that’s like nothing else.

Roush Performance has their new Active Exhaust system which is available not only as an option on their factory built Stage 1, 2 and 3 Mustangs, but you can also buy the package for your own Mustang.

The system allows you to dial in and tune your exhaust note with a console mounted knob and even tune it further with an app on your iOS device with limitless sound possibilities.

Starting with an already well tuned axle-back exhaust system, the Roush Active Exhaust uses digitally controlled actuators which alter the flow of exhaust through the mufflers which can tune both tone and volume.

It has four settings starting with Touring which is the baseline sound. Next up is Sport which is much like Touring mode at idle and mild driving.

But if you put the hammer down, it opens up and lets the sound free.

Track mode is of course the loudest, letting exhaust fully bypass the mufflers for a near open exhaust sound. This of course isn’t street legal – why it’s called Track Mode.

Lastly there is the Custom mode where you can program the system via Wi-Fi and create your own exhaust map calibration based on vehicle and engine speed, as well as throttle position.

So now you can have your cake and eat it too. This means racking the pipes out on the highway and then pulling quietly through your neighborhood at night.

This episode of Mustang Minute was brought to you by Roush Performance.
