What swayed you & Which Exhaust Choice Did Ya Make for the 3.7 L'il Animal
 
So far I've got it narrowed down the Magnaflow Street & FRPP Sport exhausts.

These 3.7's are strong little monkeys.

This video took me by storm, it's a gotta watch !

100+ MPH at 6:15, 6:55, and 9:00. That's where I open the car up and you can hear the exhaust really good! At 9:00 I start in second gear and chirp the tires going into 3rd. Damn good for a V6! I tell you the points of where I open the car up because a lot of the video is at cruising speeds and some might get bored. I wanted to get a wide range of speeds and RPM's to show the entire spectrum of sounds from the cabin. This video is shot entirely in the cab of the car.

The Exhaust is the MagnaFlow 15596 Muffler delete axle back straight pipes. Its is a deep throaty sound and I love these exhausts. I will post a video of outside the car later and than I will combine an outside shot with a cut version of the cab sound. More to come!

This a good short clip of Magnaflow Street

************************************************** *****

FRPP has good sound also;


I've listened to dozens of other video's , these are just a few of my favorites.
Also I won't be going with a CAI, i'm not a racer & Ford Racing Tech's say the stock cold air box was engineered for performance & is also used on GT's, they also say that K&N replacement filter Flows 22% better, so i'll be doing that 1 real soon.
I've been switching over to K&N oil & Air filters on my Ram 1500 & Husqy YTH24K48 Mower anyway. Also going to use Pennzoil Platinum Syn oil !

I just picked up some roush axleback exhausts a few weeks ago. They're great. I wasn't expecting but theyre loud AF. After starting it and letting it idle, the idle sounds awesome. Theres just this low bass tone to them.. They get a little raspy around 35k but they're awesome. I may consider resonators to lighten up the rasp and give it a more throaty tone.

Not a fan of magnaflows, my dad has them on his gt and they are okay. Not anything special though. My opinion is it could definitely sound better.

Those ford racing's sound great. Haven't heard them in person but they're probably somewhat similar to the roush exhaust (since it's a ford bi product)
Good luck.

Check out Dillons sixxer with roush axlebacks and glasspack resonators. The comp speakers don't do it justice for being in person. Still sounds awesome tho.

Siber nice ride, Borla was my #3 choice with the Rousch @ #4
Liked the Borla sound.

JayBee that was 1 of the videos that I watched more than once !
Super Nice Ride
Didn't like the cracking, popping & sound of the Rousch...

I'm looking at the MagnaFlow Cat Backs, Street vs Performance series.
15153 vs 15154 The difference is the muffler size, otherwise the same, same price.
This is for my 2013 V6
I'm guessing the Performance series will be much louder and possibly not legal (in Nevada)
Any opinions? Or other suggestions?

Chazman_1962 09-01-2013 09:29 AM

I wanted LOUD and I'm extremly loud, Borla LT headers, Borla off road x-pipe, Borls ATAk's axel backs, you can drive the car quietly sort of but when you hammer on it, it will wake the dead.

I would be very interested in hearing how they sound & how you feel about the sound & install !
I'm leaning more towards the Streets myself.
I think they're the 15153

ps; was informed the 15153 was only listed for the 2013 , not our 2014 /// What the heck ???

The 14 is the same, probably have not updated the site yet. My Borla's were not listed for the 2013 at Autoanything, so i bought them for the 12, and they fit fine.

OlPal 10-11-2013 10:19 AM

Well I went ahead & had a Magnaflow put on my Ram, so i'll have to wait until spring to put a Cat-Back Magnaflow on our 'Stang..

Just pulled the trigger on some Borla Stingers!
 
Was debating between the borla touring and the s-types. Found the stingers at autoanything.com for $577 and called American Muscle and they matched the price and shipped out about an hour after I ordered them. Went with the free shipping so I should see them by 12/31/13:banana:

Man, I can't friggin wait to bolt them on. They should sound great with my Airaid CAI, whoo-hoo!

Got the Borlas for the quality, reputation, sound and found a price I couldn't refuse. :icon_twocents:

semantic 12-22-2013 07:39 PM

Yeah I think I'd grab the Stingers for that price. I'm leaning toward the catback system from MBRP. Definitely like the sound on the stingers tho.

StangDawg 12-23-2013 09:23 PM

I was torn between the MBRP and Borla axle backs until I looked at some close up pictures of the welds and the quality of the overall products. Borla sold me on that alone and then I read their story and development patents on their FAQ page. I learned more about exhaust system technology from Borla than any other manufacturer. No matter what exhaust system you're considering, you should read the info at the following link:

www.borla.com/support/faqs

Great education on exhaust system technology and how sound vibrations are controlled. Check it out, really good stuff. Now I know why they cost what they do and I totally get it. You get what you pay for, just my :icon_twocents:

Are you saying the craftsmanship on the MBRP stuff looks subpar?

Yes, that's what the photos I've seen look like to me. That is only my opinion compared to Borla and not trying to start an argument or anything. If I'm wrong, fair enough. It's just that the photos of the MBRP welds don't encourage me, that's all. One member got a set of MBRPs for his convertible and loves the sound, but stated the quality was "OK". I just want better than "OK" for my Mustang.

I pretty much did the same thing which gave me the choice of Borla, FRPP or Magnaflow. Then researching the sound that I wanted and what else I was going to do to the Exhaust it got it down to the Borla Touring, modified GT500's or FRPP Touring for just the sound reasons. The Magnaflows would have been OK if not for the Headers but I planned on the Shorties.
At our local cruise in spot there was a guy with all stock except for the Stingers on his exhaust and his buddy said mine was louder and a bit deeper Hence the sound with the headers.
BTW the Borla quality is awesome :icon_twocents:

If I could stop buying suspension parts I would have my ATAK catback already.

No worries, feel free to be blunt. I don't rep MBRP. Just the first time I've heard anyone mention quality concerns with MBRP gear is all.

No problem. Every picture tells a story, and thanks to the web, there's plenty of pictures to help your research. I look for the pictures of the ones that are shown just after opening the box by the buyer. Very helpful.

From what I can find, they look pretty solid.

After checking hundreds of sound clips, Roush and FRPP sport were my favorites.
And I grabbed a chance to hear roush in person and I fell in love with the sound!
