2 people on here are going to say the roush are nice, one person will say the bassani are nice, the rest of these guys are going to say borla s types. Do yourself a favor and try and hear them in person before you buy. I made my purchase after hearing them in person. Everybody has a different opinion on what sounds good, so......

I freaking love my Roush exhaust! That is the number one reason I purchased the car!

Borla s-types are the best axle backs for the 3.7 IMO. I have yet to hear another exhaust that sounds good through out the whole RPM range. All others shine in different ranges and sound like crap in another, but the Borla s-types hold their aggressive deep rumble through out the whole span.

My bad just realized this is a v6 thread. I'm not sure what sounds better on that motor.

and here is a Bassani user. I scored mine used and like them. It sounds like a tuned European V6 with a touch of burble. As with many of the V6 systems you can get a touch of drone when going uphill and having a load on the engine but it is NOT often. Fit and finish are stellar. I will back listen in person if possible and esp in the car rather than as a bystander. I picked mine by used/local so I didn't have to pay a lot for my system.

I'd say just take off the stock mufflers and leave it like that. The sound you get will get you ALL the attention you are looking for. LOL just kidding.

Roush are decent unless you go LT and X Pipe w/ no cats. I bet shorties with stock cats would make them sound ok.

Is the borla worth the extra $300?

none of them are worth more than $300 let alone an additional $300.......

instead of straight piping it you can p/up a set of Pypes used real cheap because many people don't like them.

IMO....not at all. However, good is a very opinionated term. Some people think straight pipes sound good. But people with more delicate hearing would opt for some deeper sounding mufflers with stock manifolds or shorties.

It is really up to you. Are there any Mustang events near you where you can go and listen to setups?

I really think the borlas sound best but I just don't know if they sound $300 better than the Bassani because I think they also sound good to me just not as good

Shorties with Roush and KEEP the stock mid pipe and they sound awesome IMO. Replacing the mid pipe or go with Lts and Roush will sound terrible!

I got Borla S types after hearing them in person. I also heard the Bassani in person and there would be my choices.


Never heard the Roush in person. I also heard the ATAK and they are just a bit too loud for my old ears (42).

IMO, if you can afford the S-Types, get them. That way you will not have any "What ifs" later on.

If you only have 400-500 for ABs....

I look at these prices and am glad I scored mine used for less than $300.

I paid $300 for my slightly used roush axle backs, wouldn't pay a penny more for any brand.

Throwing another wrench into the mix. Still loving my Tridents. Under 400 clams new and in my humble opinion sound amazing! Here's a link with a few sound clips of them.

Good deal Kevin. Swapped in Royal Purple Synchromax here a few weeks back. It does feel nicer after the fluid change. Looking forward to some Trident audio bytes. See if you become a spokesman too.

Cameron - Breeze has it here and the best thing would be to try to track someone down in your area but it could hard. Guys are going to be running all sorts of different setups so nailing someone that has just the Axleback, and not an aftermarket midpipe/headers could create a challenge.

Mic and speaker quality will make it hard too but for what it's worth I would suggest the Roush Axle-Back for a variety of reasons

1. It's about $5 less
2. 409 vs stainless piping
3. Chambered Muffler vs a "Straight Through Style" (on the Bassani) that's been known to drone badly. Worse with automatic cars.



Take a listen to the Bassani - It's pretty straight through, but I don't think it has the body (if that makes sense) of the Roush:



In comparison to the Roush: Much more aggressive!







Shoot me a PM if you have any questions and I hope this helps narrow it down a little!

Alex

I think it depends on how you want to go exhaust wise, shorty headers probably the Roush, LT headers, maybe more the Bassani or Borla S types.



This was the best vid I could find of the Bassani exhaust with LT headers, and it honestly dont sound that bad at all to me.

He may or may not have some used Borla S-Type coming his way
