Raspiness

Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any possible help, it's much appreciated.
I drive a 2011 V6 and my set up is as follows...
Airaid CAI
Borla Touring axle backs
Bbk long tube headers
Bbk shorty catted x pipe
Bama flash tune.
My question is what is the best way to tame down the rasp presented with this setup? I understand it's a v6 and that hi flow catted x pipes with cross flow present a lot of rasp.
Are resonators the answer or should I adjust my muffler setup and get resonated tips?
I'm okay with raspiness, I actually like it a lot, but to an extent obviously.
Any advice with how to tame it down would be much much appreciated.

Resonators should help. Long tube headers and a high flow midpipe is going to be pretty darn raspy

LT's and an X Pipe are a bad combo.

I am very curious how your exhaust setup sounds. I usually hear ATAKS with the LTs and X Pipe. Since the Tourings are the most tame, I don't see how it could be so raspy.

Resonaters might help a little but will not get rid of all the rasp. The combination of long tubes and x pipe you have is really raspy.

Thanks to everyone who replied. Again I like the rasp to an extent and am aware of the drawbacks of the setup.
I was just looking for confirmation about resonators. Thanks for the input.

I want to keep the headers and mid pipe
Any advice on new systems behind the x pipe?
Would certain axleback/catback options work more cohesively, I'm most likely going to do resonators because any help is good at this point.

Try resonaters first because it's cheaper but most likely you will not get rid of all of the rasp. With the long tubes and x pipe there is going to be a crap load of rasp. Even with the lethal or mrt H pipe there is rasp. I believe it's just how the engines are built which results in the raspiness

You need to try resonators. 90% of your rasp is produced with long tubes and xpipe

Xpipe being the main culprit

You have one of the more mild axle back exhaust mufflers so swapping though for anything else will just intensify the rasp.

I would try 20" or longer resonators first. You may actually need to loose the x pipe in order to reduce the rasp enough for you to like it. Hard to say but that's where I would start.

The longer the resonator the more it will remove. On these raspy a** motors I wouldn't run anything shorter than 20 if your trying to remove the rasp.
