GT Borla Mufflers on V6 Question

I have a quick question and I've been looking around on the internet but can't find a straight answer. I understand the pipe size is different for v6 and GT so I would have to get it welded to fit but I wanted to know would a GT set of Borla axle backs on a v6 sound the same as a set of v6 Borla axle backs?

I know that shops can weld them to fit, but then you have to cut them off it you ever change the exhaust.

I don't know of anyone that has done that, the GT500 a/b from FRPP sound good on the 3.7 and they are supposed to Borla made, but to Ford Specs.

It will sound different. Borla makes these specific to the car to make the sound they advertise

They probably have different setups internally for the 5.0 and 3.7

Hmm, really?

Mine were for a GT. Shop cut and welded. Sound great!

He didn't ask if they would sound okay, asked if they sound different. They will. If you watch any videos on the R&D of a borla set up you will see how specific they tune the mufflers to that car. I have GT500 ataks on my car right now and I had the regular GT ataks before. The GT500 ones are a bit quieter than the GT ATAKs. My guess is this is because they designed this muffler for the GT500 that has no resonators and is FI and prob tends to be a bit louder. Does it sound good? Yeah, it's great. Does it sound different? Absolutely.

I've never heard another Cyclone with S-Types in person. So I have nothing to which I can compare.

If they still sound good then that's okay. I figured they would probably sound a little different knowing they are specific to gt. But I didn't really know if they will still sound good

Absolutely, they would most likely sound different, maybe same type of tone but louder due to higher flow spec that a more powerful engine requires. I just recently had installed GT500 Magnaflow Street axlebacks for a quad tip setup on my car. It turned out a bit louder than I expected, especially the drone. Many videos I have seen of Magnaflow Streets made for the v6 showed it to be really mild.

I really love exhaust note my car now has, but I have to question whether I can handle the loud drone above 65mph for the life of this car, if I keep it for many years.

Have you considered adding a J-pipe?

Neat! So it didn't change the tone at all, just eliminates the drone above a certain rpm based on the pipes' length? Does it also have to be approximately the same diameter as the pipe it's being welded to or is slightly smaller works just as well?
