Questions about my new exhaust set up.

I have the 2012 Mustang v6 with the BBK off road X pipe and Borla Atak catback. I have the loud rattle sound which is very horrible when I am down shifting my car. I mean, is that normal? And it gets super massively loud after 3500RPM, like super super loud, it is super raspy and I just dont like it. Is that anything wrong with it? I youtubed some online and they were just fine but mine.

*I took it to the shop to do it because I am a slob to do it. lol*

I think the problem is the combo that you chose. The X-pipe and Atak are both loud, but there is no depth to them. I saw an 08-V6 at the shop with the same set up and it did not sound good at all, just like you described: rattling loudness. Try the Roush catback. It has a much deeper tone.

Supposed to go through a few heat cycles and wait for it to cool down then retighten when you get new exhaust. Shops dont retighten because once its installed it isnt their problem

So what should I do? Change the exhaust?

Did you do any research to this combo before you bought it? Did you talk to the tech support folks of the manufacturers before you bought?

Sounds like a combination that is not compatable, producing the preverbial drone that is annoying at midrange RPM's.

Before he does that, I would recommend going to the gym. Sounds like it could help...

I would tend to agree with Bucko on this one. Some parts don't work well with others, especially when you're dealing with a exhaust system. As much as I didn't like homework when I was a kid, research is key when making upgrades. (To anything, that is.)
