What exhaust should i get for my 2013 V6?

I am getting an exhaust system sometime soon and I already have the roush cold air intake, and am now ready to get an axelback exhaust. I want something not too loud but loud enough to turn heads. Nothing that sounds like a ricey 4 banger. Ive been looking at gibsons exhaust but not sure about it. Any suggestions? Borla is out of my price range fyi

I scored a Bassani AB used and like it. It sounds what I describe as European with a bit of decel burble. fit and finish were top notch, the only downside is as with most V6 systems there is a touch of drone at lower rpms when the engine is under load (ie uphill). Best bet is find someone local and listen in person (or just take what you can used) the only one I would avoid is Pypes as you see them often used.

yeah, I know some people like them.

I have heard Mud's car many times and can attest to the great sound. I would definitely recommend the Bassani axle backs for the V6.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention Pypes often have fitment issues....ie they often will require adjust/swearing to get them to line up and look good.

Shhhhh shhhhh shhhhhhh, i got a set for sale now that fit GREAT

In all honesty, with the stock cats on the pypes were perfect, but catless they drone just a little too much for my Fiance's commute, so we're going to replace them with some Borla. And yeah, they dont fit for ****, i had to get under there with some zip ties in an attempt to cinch them into place.

I would say go with the Trident Exhaust, I got mine and I have had no issues with the sound from the axleback themselves, I have a vid of what they sound like, plus they are only like $400.

I'm also wondering which exhaust to go for. I don't know anyone around me with Mustangs that have aftermarket axle-backs so I can't decide between Borla Atak, Borla S, or Roush. Some say the Roush sound really good, while others say it sounds ricey so I don't know lol.

I personally believe Mac is one of the best sounding axle back systems. They do have some drone though. They are also very affordable.

^ This guy. No complaints with mac products. If you live in a area with mountains or hills than you may want to stay away.

Pype bombs sound the best i have to say for a v6, fitment sucks but i paid 20 for the exhaust to straighten and get the fitment correct

I also have the bassani and I really like them, after I installed shorty headers the drone is pretty much gone which is a plus.

I love my FRPP sport axle backs. There are a few sounds clips on you tube of these. Not to many people I know have these. Just about identical to Borla S type and from what I've heard in previous posts these are actually made by Borla. These are a hair cheaper then Borla as well. I'm very happy with these!!!

I went with Ford Racing Touring Mustang Axle-Back Exhaust M-5230-MV6CA (11-14 V6) - Free Shipping FTW.

Our 2013 MCA SP. ED. Mustang has taken two 8,000 mile trips with this exhaust and I have a wife that hates a bad sounding exhaust but loves this one. Below is a link to our trip to the 50th with the Mustangs Across America group if you care to watch.

i think the big thing to remember is that borla's don't drone at all, whereas some of the competition do. you may like their tone more, but you may absolutely hate it when you're at cruising rpm's and the drone makes you wanna gnaw your eyeballs out.

always gotta remember that! i love the atak's because they can be loud and obnoxious as hell with no drone, but soft when you're light on the accel. people don't even hear me pulling up to my house at night bc i feather the gas so my neighbors don't hate me. gotta love em

I have the magnaflow street series and love them. But the general consensus with axle backs are 1 they don't gain any hp and 2 look around at videos and try and hear some in person as everyone has different tastes and definitions on who "loud" is. For example some love Rousch while others took them off a few hours after installing them

They are one of the best sounding but the drone is nauseating. I tried mac, pypes, bola and finally MRT interceptors. The MRT are amazing, sound like the mac however because of the way they are built the have no drone. Its crazy, what I have found with the other brands is the better they sound the more drone you get. That is not the case with the MRT.

Basically any axleback will sound better than stock, but if you get an offroad midpipe is where the problems start, majority of the most common axlebacks sound like nails in a blender with offroad midpipe.
