Still can't decide on exhaust

I still can't decide on exhaust for my 14 3.7. I have been thinking about the bbk long tubes with the catted x pipe and FRPP sport axle backs. I like the bbk shorties and mrt catted h pipe but cannot decide which on to do. Either way I'll most likely have the FRPP sport axle back. Any suggestions or recommendations?

Will you be drag racing/revving past 4000 RPMs on a constant basis? If not, go for Shorties. In reality, there is a really small gap of performance between Shorties and Longtubes when it comes to these V6s.

Of course, everyone will give you their own opinion on this. For many reasons, I prefer shorties. The slightly deeper note it tends to give mufflers. As well as keeping my Cats on the car so it stays 100% legal anywhere I go in the U.S. (if I were to relocate, which has come up a few times)

Plus, the longtube setup is just more expensive. So definitely weigh the pros and conns.

I won't be consistently drag racing but I may every now and again run down the strip. I was thinking more hp (long tubes) or go with sound (shorties). How much difference is the preformance gap of lt or shorties?

Longtubes tend to give a hair in the higher RPM range. The Shorties down low. It's nothing you will really feel. And the change is so marginal. Like, a slightly bad launch knocking off a tenth of a second marginal.

Over on another site someone went from Long tubes to Shorties and lost a tenth in the quarter. The fact that you don't have to change your cats and still 100% emission legal is a plus.

Are you planning on going turbo in the future? If so I'd stick with the shorties. If not then go with whichever you want.

Deciding which exhaust setup to use is a difficult subject. There are a lot of folks that can suggest the setup which worked for them personally but it may not work for you. My advise is to go out to car shows and find a setup close to the what your thinking you want to do and talk to the owner. You'll have a better chance of finding your thoughts on performance/sound.

Just get an axle back first. Ford Racing Sports and Borla s-types are the same exhaust and in my opinion sound the best. No high pitch rasp. Loud when you want and quiet when you want.

I swapped from S Types to ATAKs. With the BBK shorties and stock mid pipe, it sounds nice. Nice loud deeper tone.
