2014 v6 BBK Offroad X-Pipe Help Needed

First off, this is my first post on here. I have a 2014 v6 that I bought around a month ago. First thing I did was take it to the exhaust shop and got the stock mufflers cut out and got 2 IMCO mufflers put in with new tips. I then found some videos on youtube of the BBK Offroad X-Pipe and knew that's what I wanted. So I ordered the x-pipe along with the x4 bama tuner. Put the X-Pipe on and it's crazy loud now. Not in a good way really either. Driving at low speeds it's too raspy and rattly almost sounding if something is loose. Wanting to quiet it down some or go for a deeper tone. What mufflers would y'all recommend or should I put stock mufflers back there?

No muffler will help that x pipe in my opinion. They sound terrible on our v6s no matter what muffler you attach to it.

The x pipe never has a good ending with our motors. I agree, ditch the x pipe.

It's not the X pipe that makes the car sound bad, IMO the cut & clamp X pipe options sound great. It's the removal of the cats and resonators that results in the 3.7 sounding raspy and terrible. To sound good, these cars really need both.

Gonna have to respectfully disagree with you guys. I have an off road x pipe along with long tube headers on my 3.7 and love the tone. I think the mufflers one chooses plays a huge part in liking the tone. I have Flowmaster Force II axle backs.

I personally think the Roush axle backs sound like a$$ so they would really sound like more a$$ with an x pipe. OP, get some axle backs and that will change its tone and hopefully a tone YOU like.
