Yet another exhaust thead/poll

I know everyone has opinions on exhaust but I've narrowed it down to two types.

Flowmaster force 2 and the magnaflow streets axle back. I want a nice throaty roar/v8 sound at idle. I know its a v6 so it'll never be a v8 but I'd like to get as close as possible to that iconic muscle car sound. So, what are y'all's opinions on them.

I don't like either one I think they sound like rattling tin cans at 3k or above RPM's

I'd say comps because they just sound so sick sometimes. You'll never get that v8 sound perfectly but if it's between those two I would suggest the flow master force 2 I think they sound better from what I've heard on YouTube and stuff

Same from what I have seen on YouTube . And I have always liked flowmasters in my trucks, even the v6s

Comps cause too much drone for me like roush. If I didn't drive 30 miles to work everyday I wouldn't mind but ehh. I had flowmasters on my 02 3.8L. I loved the sound but on this new motor they sound throaty but I'm worried about the pop and gargle being annoying Honda sounding

Head on out to some local car shows in your area and see if you can find a V6 Mustang with the two exhaust setups you have it narrowed down to. Ask the owners to fire up the engine. Now you'll have first hand (and ear) knowledge of what they sound like. Ytube vids are alright, but the tiny PC speaker does not do the sound clips much justice.

Magnaflow. Although I would highly recommend Borla S-type

Foe what you are asking for::::::

Magnaflow Streets will be perfect for what you want. A nice deep rumble, Not obnoxious, only loud when you are flooring it. Tip's look great, Completely made of stainless steel. You won't have to worry about Cop's and neighbors hating you. They also just bolt on with no cutting or welding.

A lot of these guys on this forum love the Borla's, Rousch's, and Magnaflow comps and the other super loud mufflers. They are all good and do what they are intended, Make noise. That is not bad if you want loud but I think you are asking for something that sounds great but not overly obnoxious.

There are many,many posts on this forum covering mufflers so I suggest you start reading some of them before you plunk your $$$$ down.

I want that nice deep old school rumble. How loud are the streets and the force 2's? Also heard that the black on the flowmasters chips away easy

Just loud enough

My streets sound good enough to let people know I'm starting up A Mustang and not a Toyota Prious.
None of my friends think my car is a V6, They just all assumed it is a V8. I put My Magnaflow streets on with the K&N drop in air filter at 240 miles on the OD. Drove to Media for the AM all Mustang show, Came home and put the decklid panel on it to get rid of the pie-plate that would have gave it away. Nobody ever seen or heard it when it was stock.There is nothing on my car telling it is a V6 except it does say 3.7 on my rear disc covers but nobody really ever reads them.
With my 18 inch wheels with Pirelli P-Zero Nero tires and the MCA premium front end and deck lid cover it just does not look like a V6 and really does not sound like one.




I have breakfast at Tim's diner on a lot of Saturday mornings with the Hot Rod crowd and I have had guy's tell me when I start it up to leave "Ain't nothing sounds as good as a Mustang." They have no idea it is a V6.

Anything you put on your car will definitely sound way better then the stock mufflers.
It is just that the streets are good sounding without giving you a headache

If you want to lol ill call ya and let you hear my exhaust. I was unsure of what to get as well. And I was back an fourth with the magnaflow and Borla. But the s-type is right in the middle. It's not obnoxiously loud or quiet. It's a deep growl and I absolutely love how it sounds. She's loud when I need her to be.

I'm hooked on the magnaflows because the first 2011-2012 I test drove had them. I'm not sure what kind but they sounded like a v8 and said magnaflow on the tips. Borlas are hella expensive. My dad has them on his el camino, he starts it up and people look out their window to see if the world is coming to an end. It's so loud that you can hear it inside the house.

Catback starts at the end of the mid pipe and back. The mid pipe is the X or in your case the H shaped pipe

Ummm you do know your car comes with H-Pipe right? And some ppl put Uncatted H-Pipes because they make the exhaust tone deeper. The X-Pipe causes more rasp but is slightly better for performance so it's more widely used. Next time look it up bro

because of the little pipe in the middle that connects the two main pipes makes it more of a h pipe than a x pipe on the stock mid pipe set up

Also idk why people sacrifice a few hp for exhaust tone with the cats. Just leave em on. The more power the better.
