Exhaut tone 2014 V6

I don't want it any raspier or much louder I Just want to deepen it to a low rumble like the stang's challenger, charges of the 70's. So from what I am gathering that means keep the cats and lose the resonators correct? which would mean long tubes are out so I need short's or just regular headers? Correct. Thanks guys Advantages of shorties or mid's? Or am I off base on all this?

There are usually little gains with the shorties in a lot of applications , and for the time and money, it becomes an even less ideal situation. However I don't have personal experience with shorties on a 3.7. Though I am certain you would see better gains power and sound wise with the long tubes.

Now the 3.7 may not respond the same way, sound wise, as the 3.8, but id have a hard time believing this setup would not get you much closer to the sound you want. Cam, longtubes, high flow cats, a Mac Prochamber and a quality chambered muffler of your choice.

Pricey, sure, but it would sound pretty damn good.

Except the 3.7 is a much raspier engine from what I have heard. Throw some Borla S types on and call it a day.

See that's why I am leaning against the shorty's. All that work and I am thinking not much MPG or HP gain, nothing noticeable at least. I do like the idea of long tubes but if I am going to keep the cat's, why bother? Where I live we have NO emissions test and I never plan on selling the car. But some people said taking off the cats will give it a raspy ricer sound

Looking to pick up the mpg's and hp a little so that won't help, but I see your point

I would go with Magnaflow Streets or Borla S. Our V6's still rasp when revving in neutral to four thousand plus RPM's. Just the way it is

I would have to say there is zero rasp with my Streets, no matter how I rev it.

Shorty headers on the 3.7 are probably the easiest header install you'll ever do, even if you only see 8-10 peak whp. However they show very good gains under the curve where the 3.7 needs it the most.

Haven't made any yet.

As far as drone, while driving uphill under load in a certain RPM range, it does drone. I just lock out 6th on my auto when that happens and the drone goes away.

Shorties will give you more down low where our cars need it, long tubes will net better gains up high but not down low.
Imo shorties are a better option on the 3.7 then long tubes.

Shorties and Borla S Types, leave the Cats and the Resonators alone.
20 Foot pounds of Torque is nothing to laugh about. Everyone looks at peak numbers, you have to look at the whole dang thing since the shorties have better gains in the low to mid range than long tubes and most are Emission legal in all 50 states unlike the Long tubes which are illegal in all 50 states because of federal emissions laws no matter what you do.

Reading the Op's original post, all he is looking for is a deep sound with no rasp. He doesn't care about power.

Long tubes are raspy, shorties allow you to leave the stock cats and resonators in place and just makes a lower note.

Prima recommended this and it looks like it makes sense' "Your welcome. You will like long tubes with out cats. Just don't do an xpipe lol. Xpipe and your sound like a Honda exhaust .
If you do long tube I would go with 20"reso an h pipe and run a round straight through muffler. All of that will remove a lot of rasp and deepen the tone. I personally like the manga flow round mufflers for this sound. Not the ovals. "

I have BBK Shorty Headers with factory cats & mid pipe with FRPP Touring (Pre-Borla) Axle backs. My '14 V6 has a nice deep tone without being overly loud. As a matter of fact, I have been driving around without any tunes so I can hear the rumble. I don't have any drone at highway speeds or driving around town and get a nice burble on deceleration. Sometimes I even wish they were a bit louder, but I don't have to worry about waking the neighbors when I'm coming home late. I do plan to install the FRPP X-Pipe in the near future.

I have Magnaflow Streets, no drone at all. I have Magnaflow Competitions (straight pipes), drone and will drive you crazy also with a loss of 'low end' torque

like it or die......

I will admit I had originally typed love in my first post and knew that wasn't the right word. you can get a V6 to sound good but the only one I've heard that was great (and only a clip of it) was Kona's? with the cam/lope tune.

Can someone please fix the misspelled word in the title of this thread. Lol. It truly is hard finding a good exhaust for these 3.7 mustangs. I'm hoping the s types start to sound better. I have about 300 miles on them so far and they sound okay inside but I had my wife drive it the other day so I could hear it outside and I wasn't that impressed. I do like that they are quiet with normal driving until you give it some gas and then they wake up. I will say the roush had a deeper sound when driving around but the drone was insane and not to mention the raspiness when you floored it.

Well my Borla tour with ceramic shorties & airaid tube after abt 24k on them sound great. Like coool when you step on it it turns heads and comes alive. It has a nice deep tone while idling. No snap crackle or pop when showing them off. On the highway I can listen to satellite or talk on the phone with out being drown out. Some buddies where driving behind me and told me what a great sound it had going down the road. Sound is intimidating I guess that why many bow ties and others fade instead of challenge when I pass them.

I like my sound for a V6. The truth is there is no way a V6 is gonna push the air/exhaust a V8 does so make the best of what you have....
That's what I tell the old lady too...

While the h-pipe and resonators helping with rasp is true, the longtubes will ADD rasp. Also, you want a chambered muffler, not a straight-through muffler. Roush is a straight-through style and they get very raspy once you start messing with the rest of the exhaust system.
