I'm sure I'll have better results once I'll buy the XCal2 and bring up the rev limiter to a higher point.
...There is no sure way of showing you or letting you hear how exactly the exhaust sounds unless you were to sit with me in the car. All I know is that I 100% don't regret I got it done.
I was told by quite a few different people that now it sounds alot like a mustang GT... but again, with a rev limiter.

I don't know if it's just your camera, but mine seems to have alot more resonance in the cab when I drive than what I am hearing on your video.
Then again I've had mine for more than a month and maybe mine has "settled" as some have said it would.
I dig the resonance in the cab, it kinda gives it a muscle car feel...
I think what you hear from my videos is very close to what you'd hear if you were sitting in my car... well, pretty close.
And as far as the muscle car sound.. I definitely dig that.. that's the exact sounds I was hoping to get out of it..
And yes, it does take some time for the exhaust to be "broken in"... and it has been getting louder ever since I got it installed.

I will not dig resonance in the cab... eek. Sounds good outside, but I wouldn't want it loud inside. Crap.
Swoop, hold your horses.... no worries mate... the resonance is there only if you want to be. By that I mean it depends on how you gas it. If you drive calmly and at the speed limits... you'll barely if at all will hear any resonance...
... trust me, I was the same way, I didn't want to get my ears plugged every time I'd get on the freeway... and you know what I don't... as stated in the video... if going 65-70mph .... with the normal 2k RPM ... you won't hear one bit of that exhaust.
And as WiKDMoNKY stated, the resonance is not the annoying kind, and it doesn't sound like a shit hole... in a matter of fact it produces a pretty damn sexy sound... for which reason I accelerate to any desired speed as fast as the fusion can... just so i can drool for that one moment as to how sexy my baby sounds!!
No it is not the stock exhaust , i dont know about the power increase but from what people say they all have seemed to like it it is prolly somewhere from 5-15 hp add , if you want you can remove your air silencer to get more sound and better response.
