Best exhaust for 2012 v6

I just bought my little brother a used 2011 v6 for dirt cheap as a late graduation present and I want to change the exhaust before I give it to him. He leaves for college soon so my time is limited.

I've only had Borla exhausts so I'm biased, but I have no clue how they sound on a v6. Can you recommend a good/tasteful exhaust? Something with bark, but controlled. Thanks!

And I've watched every you tube video, and to me they all sound like garbage, so I'm looking for real life experience because I really can't get a good gauge from the vids.

I've always been happy with my magnaflows. Nice deep sound for a little six cylinder. They do drone a bit on the highway as do some others however. I also added headers and an x pipe witch improved the sound and horsepower. The x pipe only offered a slight difference in sound and horsepower versus the stock h pipe hybrid so I wouldn't place much of a priority on that

Which magnaflows? Street or the other one? I think I like the Borla s type and magnaflow street the best so far.

I have the magnaflow streets and love them. Mild enough to not be obnoxious yet loud enough to hear the car and has a good tone to it. Also don't have any drone. Rest of the intake/ exhaust is stock.

Hey Doyl, that is real nice of you to do that for your little brother man. I bet he will appreciate that and never forget it. I have Borla s types on mine and they sound pretty good. I had the roush and it sounded great until you reall got on it, then around 3k rpm it just sounded like a can rattling until it hit around 4K rpm. The roush are definitely deeper but drone too much for my taste. The Borlas are loud when you wot and hush down as soon as you hit your targeted speed. Also no drone with the Borlas.

Short Tube Headers and Borla Touring or S Types. I have the BBK Shorties and the Touring on mine and get compliments on the sound all the time.
You said exhaust and headers qualify.

I have Borla Stinger cat-back on my 2012 V6. Really "cackles" when you get on it--otherwise quite nice. Great looking large exhaust ports also.

Thx to all those who answered helpfully (which was all of you!) but the OP is no longer with us and doesn't really want help.

That's too bad. He's my brother and I saw the reason why he was banned. It just says reason-pending.

To me it seems like you didn't have nerve to ban him for an actual reason. You banned him because he didn't have he same views as you. What ever happened to freedom of speech?

Yeah my brother has his opinions, but he loves all mustangs, and he actually did buy me the 2011 v6. We went with the Borla s type if anyone was wondering. Thank you for contributing. It gets delivered on Monday.

You can ban me if you want as well. Truth is I only joined to so I could thank you guys for your input and call out the guy that banned my brother for no reason.

And by the way...my brother has like 50 screen names on here. 3 of them are in this thread lol. Smh...

Awseome. Do us a solid, Mark. Take a pic at that same angle in that same driveway but with the door open.

Do that and I'll never question you again.

That's the one thing I don't like about the Borlas. Looks like a fart cannon.

Late to the party but Bassani sounds really good. Its deeper and less raspy than the Roush if you can put up with the 2500-3k drone

Is that just the axle backs or is that the while setup?

Bassani AB's on mine...as others have mentioned if I lug the engine (ex going up hill in high gear )around 2k there is a bit of drone.

My .02 get whatever local used set you can find for $200-300 (except Pypes) which you see used often
