BBK Shorty Headers + Roush Axlebacks?

Hi,
I just recently installed the Roush axlebacks on my 2014 v6. I LOVE them. The drone does not bother me at all and I actually really love love love the rasp that they make around 3k+ rpms. My question here is this. I am very tempted to get some BBK Shorty Headers. I would prefer it if the Roushes were a bit deeper and I honestly would not mind it being a little louder. Plus the performance increase is a big bonus. I have heard that the headers will make the tone a little deeper, and possibly increase volume a little bit. I also have heard that they take away the drone and most of the rasp. How much of the rasp is missing after installing the headers? The rasp is my favorite part of the exhaust and if the headers take away that signature Roush sound then I don't want them. Any suggestions??

-Travis

I have seen those videos. But it very hard to tell just how different it is. Especially the upper rpm rasp

I put BBK shorties on after the Roush AB and love the sound. It did deepen the sound especially at idle. The rasp is still there in the higher rpm. In my opinion you can't go wrong with that combo.

Thanks for the info! That makes me feel a lot better. Did the volume increase any? And at what RPM does the rasp start to kick in with the shorties??

Maybe just a little louder but a deeper loud if that makes sense at all. The rasp kicks in at around 3000 rpm
