You don't have to tell us: the sound of the Ford Mustang's beastly engine is one of many traits that make this model so appealing. However, you don't always want your exhaust to sound like a freight train. Ford Mustang's Active Performance Exhaust Audio Engineering solves this problem. How? Our El Reno, OK Diffee Ford team has your quick answer.

The Sound of Muscle

Alternating high and low air pressure pulses moving at the speed of sound create sound waves. When engine exhaust valves open wide, high-pressure gas escapes into the exhaust system, causing monstrous soundwaves. What to do? Ford Mustang Active Performance Exhaust Audio Engineering lets you adjust exhaust valve opening, controlling exhaust decibel level. The settings are:

  • Quiet
  • Sport
  • Normal
  • Track

Chainsaw or Rock Concert?

Experts tell us we experience sounds as painful or annoying at decibel ratings in the upper 70s. Rock concerts and chainsaws have nearly similar decibel ratings, but their harmonics are different. The Ford Mustang Active Performance Exhaust Audio Engineering controls decibel level and alters exhaust harmonics, creating sound feedback that's more race car and less chainsaw.
