Resonator on off road x pipe, will it remove the rasp? Or sell it?

So I wasn't to sure I wanted to keep my off road pipe because it has way to much raspy noise and I'm not digging that. But with the help of fellow mustang evolution members; I have came to a crossroad conclusion. Should I get resonators to remove the x pipe raspy sound ( but my problem with that is, will it remove enough rasp for it to not sound like a bunch of empty soda cans clinking and clanking together)? Or should I sell the BBK off road x pipe all together instead and install my stock one?

These 3.7's sound like garbage when you remove the cats IMO. Some resonators might tame it a little but it won't eliminate it.

Lol mine sounds classy. It's about your muffler setup. 3 years and people still don't get that.

Anyway, resonators don't reduce rasp. They change the tone of the exhaust. Deeper and more fart can sounding. You still have the rasp, so it's a half yes and half no

Try the roush ab mufflers. I have them on mine. Thing to remember with them is they mellow out a lot after 1200 miles or so. So you can not listen to them at first. I absolutely love mine. Just have to remember it's a v6 and will never sound like a v8. If your in Michigan we could meet up and u can hear the roush ab set up if you'd like.

Roush is straight pipes. It'll drone and sound bad. If you want quality sound with off road pipes, get borla for loud, or gt500's for quiet. I have gt500's and mac off road pro chamber. Very classy

The roush drone is not bad at all. I don't know why so many people say it is. I love the sound of them. Not lout when cruising but loud at wot. I can't complain about them.

Pair them with resonators and it'll drone bad. I can complain on the fact that you can get flowmaster 40's welded for less and they drone less and have same tone. Kind of a rip

I have no cats on my 3.7 and its sweet music to my ears. Absolutely love the tone under normal driving operations and WOT. So, with that said , I'm gonna have to completely disagree with you sir. 😎

For my personal taste the Roush AB sound is not my my cup of tea. I am not a fan of its tone. Flowmaster Force II axle backs is where its at.

Exhaust sound

Exhaust sounds are like women, some of us like red heads, some blonds. It's all in what each of us is looking for. I've got GT500 on mine, primarly because I got tired of the drone between 1200 and 1600 rpm. Not a lot of sound now, but the f____n drone is gone.

Well, I'll agree with you on that. If someone wants an axle back to stand out and make a whole bunch of extremely loud noise, the Roush axle backs are for you. If someone wants ear piercing, head turning, then look no further. The Roush axle backs with no almost no baffling is the ticket. Its basically a hollow piece of metal in the shape of muffles. Ha ha ha

Roush with off road anything sound bad, with or without resonators. As soon as we replace the mid pipe on our 3.7s your very limited on what you can use as an ab without it sounding like poop.
