Roush idle and sound

Hey is this axle back as loud as people say it is? Cause I've heard the idle and it was way to quiet for my taste I want something loud at idle would an x pipe so it? Also there's not a catback is there?

At idle its not loud, an x pipe will make it louder at idle, but when you step on the gas it will sound like *****.

Roush with shorties or by themselves are fine, but when the mid pipe is replaced with either off-road or catted x the exhaust note becomes a loud mess. You need a quiet axel back to reduce the amount of rasp and poop that the x will produce. Roush does the exact opposite and just amplifies it.
Roush + x= poop.

I just have the Roush axle backs and I think they are pretty loud when you hit the gas

not a fan of the roush at all... they are pretty loud, probably the loudest available aside from strait pipes... and they don't have a very good tone imo... i'm a former roush axleback owner...
