Exhaust Drone

Ok it's my turn for an exhaust thread...

I have the Mac axle back on my 2014 and I really like the tone. It has a nice deep rumble to it. The only issue for me is the drone. I wouldn't say it's horrible but for me it's more than I want.

I'm not sure which way to go. I don't mind spending some money to try and decrease the drone I'm just not sure how. Should I just replace the Mac's?? I was looking at the Bassani AB,from the videos it sounds nice. I was reading that the Mac Pro Chamber helps tame an exhaust but they aren't avaible right now...then I thought about shorties but I'm reading they don't change the sound very much, just adds some depth.

What about resonators? I did a little research on this and it seems like mixed opinions. Has anyone here done resonators to "tame" your exhaust? I want to ame sure to spend my money where it will be most effective.

When my Pypes kit started getting drone at highway speeds, I tried the resonators. Didn't do jack for it. Made the tone awful until they broke in and just made things slightly quieter.

I'm not a fan of the prochamber, on the 3.7, the limited videos I've seen that thing sounds like tinny trash.

You're going to want a full case muffler to reduce drone. So one of the Borla's are good, I and others can attest they have very minimal if any drone.

Flowmasters are pretty bad on drone, haven't heard much on Magnaflow but I do remember hearing a lot of complaints about drone with the Bassanis.

Ok this is good info, thanks.

If I go Borla it would most likely be the Touring.

I have Borla Touring and the tone and volume are music to my ears. However, it is not "zero" drone. Anything but stock will have some drone. Borla Touring is famously the most mellow and least "drone-y" muffler out there. But I get resonance in the cabin from about 2300-2600 rpm. Fortunately this is so minimal that you will only pass by it briefly. When I'm cruising on the highway at 70-80 at ~2000 rpm the hum is quite pleasant. But maybe if someone has short gears they might sit at the 2300-2600 range when cruising, and I would imagine that to be quite migraine-inducing. That said, I still strongly recommend Borla Touring.

I'd recommend shorty headers. Completely removed the drone on my system where 18" magnaflow resonators barely helped

This is where I'm confused. I also believe any after market exhaust will drone, how bad is the thing. I don't want to drop 540.00 on some Borlas and still have drone. I wish I could heart hem in person...

I'm not opposed to the shorties either. I'm just confused how a header will eliminate drone? It doesn't make sense to me.

I have Borla S-Type and Mac shorty, so far I'm very happy with it but If you want zero drone go with the touring I had them as well and no drone at all but wanted a little more sound so I got the s type and no complaints just a little louder which is what I am looking for.

MPT TUNE, Borla S-Type, Airaid Cai, Ford racing X pipe, Mac ceramic shorty headers, 2010 GT500 rims, 35% tint, Sr Springs, J&M phb, camber bolts, blacked out side markers, front and taillights.

I never had drone w flowmasters before header install so I can't answer that

If you are willing to wait a couple weeks, my gf and I are in the middle of a controlled experiment to quantitatively measure drone on the borlas, compared to stock. Using a decibel meter. In the cabin, both while driving and parked, inside and outside the cabin. Different speeds, different rpms.

How do you rate the drone? 1 low 10 bad...

I'm sorry not sure I can believe this. Flowmasters are the worst for drone. My first Mustang was a 97 GT with Flowmasters, the drone was horrible.

Absolutely. I'm doing it both for self-interest and to help the mustang community. Trying to do something about the endless exhaust threads.

If I would rate the drone for the touring I would go with 3 every aftermarket exhaust always have drone in it but it's nothing like overbearing after you pass cruising speed you can't hear it at all, but with my S type I would rate it as 5 but it's nothing like that would give me a headache and again after cruising speed no problem. Believe me I drove to Maryland from mass for 8 hours and no complaints and that's with my wife in the car and she has no complaints about it knowing her she always complained about everything. If you're looking for one my best advice is go with the s types if you want a little more sound to it but not overwhelming and little to no drone.

Drone is somewhat subjective and depends on your gearing how often you experience it.

Like before my gear swap I never had drone, but with the Pypes afterwards cruising at 80 it was awful. Now cruising with the ATAKS there is some mellow drone but nowhere near as bad as previously. With the radio on, you don't notice.

That's why I said little to none. Since mine are the most aggressive, I'd imagine the s types or touring are much better at in cabin noise.

As for shorty headers, those reducing drone is nonsense to me. The mufflers are what creates drone, and they're pretty far past the headers at that point haha.

I have so little drone out of my Borla Touring I would almost call them Drone free, but I did my exhaust backwards, headers and X-Pipe went on before the Mufflers so I do not know how they sound by themselves.

I have the Bassani on my V6 (3.31 MT) and like them. I describe the sound as European with a bit of a burble. But, when going up hill under certain conditions there is a touch of drone. From my reading of threads I think more folks with Autos have issues with drone. fwiw I picked mine because used/local/$. Fit/finish are top notch. I recently heard mine driven by someone else and the combo with the Airaid and axle backs was real nice from outside the car. CT if ya wanna hear them...

Sakib, good stuff but I wonder if drone is easily measured by db's.

My Magnaflow Streets on the 2.73 auto will drone going uphill also. That's the only time the wife mentions anything.

This is so confusing. I might just have to go back to the stock mufflers. I really dont want to go that route but I also dont want to spend money when Im not sure it will even accomplish my goal.

I listened to the videos and it sounded good. I think Bassani is a top notch company who makes a great product. I appreciate the offer for listening in person but you might be a little too far for a drive...

SoCal, stick or auto? They have differant mufflers. The MT's are a bit louder with NO drone and you should be able to pick them up cheap. I sold mine to Vig and he's happy with them (out side the box idea)

Manual. I still have mine. I learned long ago never sell stock parts. To be honest I dont remember what the stock ones even sound like. Maybe stock mufflers with some shorties will give me a decent tone with minimal drone.

I think you might be over reacting to what I said about the touring. I mean, it's really minimal drone. It's drone to be sure, but not bad at all and only in a short rpm range that you won't be cruising around.

Regarding your shorty with stock mufflers idea - that is known to be quieter than stock. But deeper. I think BigShow14 and shunc01 had that temporarily.

Another thing - you can be more sure if you will accomplish your goal or not if you try to find people in your area with different setups. Take a ride with someone with Borla Touring - that shouldn't be hard to find. You're a staff member... can't you use some type of NSA-like search where you filter out the members by region and mods listed on their profiles? haha

This is a great idea and Im sure if I tried hard enough I could find people. The problem is I dont have the time for that. Work keeps me very busy during the week and my weekends are time to spend with my wife. If I could find some one close Id do it in a heart beat,,,

I did this with my 350z. I spent a lot before I finally broke down and spent the 1000.00 on a Nismo exhaust, one of the best systems I've had...period. It had such a sweet tone. That's what I'm looking for with this car...

Anyone ever try the MBRP? I can get a cat back from AM for around 515.00, it looks decent.

Sorry for a little thread jack here: are your macs chambered or turbo mufflers? I looked around last night and figured borla s types are turbo style, while Ataks are chambered. Which of these 2 styles offer a throaty growl? Minimal rasp?

I believe they are chambered.
