Another axle-back thread... with a twist. Back to stock?

Just bought a 2014 that the previous owner put Roush axle-backs on. Lots of fun for now, but for me, the novelty will probably wear off soon... plus my wife HATES them and we commute together. So what are my options for stock-type exhaust? Will GT exhaust fit, or are the pipes a larger diameter? Will all years 11-14 fit? From looking at pics online, I can tell that '05-'10 and '15-'16 won't work...

Hoping to find some take-offs on Craigslist or eBay...

gt are bigger i believe, the pipes themselves anyway. but you may be able to put gt Axlebacks on. all years 11 to 14 will fit. borla touring are nice. I've got them on mine. I had ataks, and were too loud after a year for me, so I'm trying to sell them and got touring. they're nice. not as loud but still more growly than stock. expensive though.

If you want a stock like sound, save yourself a lot of money and buy some stock manual mufflers.
Sell the Roush and put that cash towards other mods like a tuner and really wake up the car, especially if its an auto.

I've been thru this, too

I'm a 3.7 convertible owner who wished for better sound from the axle backs; tried Magnaflow streets but the drone was so bad I took them off in a week! Decided on same year GT take-offs from NewTakeOff.com, went to the local muffler shop to have the OEM pipes cut off the 3.7 axlebacks & welded on the GT axlebacks. Resulted in a milder deeper sound that's at least satisfactory if not louder plus the rolled tips on the GT axlebacks look great! And, of course, NO DRONE!

I too have a 14 Vert. Found some 14 GT take offs on Craigslist for $50. Muffler shop charged $40 to cut OEM v6 close to muffler. Cut neck off GT mufflers welded v6 inlet pipe to GT muffler. Done.
NO DRONE. Agree rolled tips look great. Sold old v6 auto mufflers for $25. So for $65 total I'm very pleased.
Agree also see if you can find some V6 manuals. They will bolt right on & sound good.

Ok, sounds like two good choices for me... the GT mufflers with V6 inlets welded on or some MT mufflers. Unfortunately I don't have stock V6 mufflers to cut the inlets off... my car came with the Roush ones and I'm not gonna cut them up if I can get $$$ for them. But at least I know which direction to go, and I will be hitting a couple of local Ford dealers to inquire about takeoffs. Thanks all!

The manual mufflers have better looking tips that the roller gt, imo. I'd go Mt mufflers or gt500 but with the second you'd still need a donor set to get the connector from since they are also 2.5" vs 2.25" on the 3.7.

Thanks! I'm going to try to find a set locally to avoid shipping costs, but if I'm coming up empty, I'll let you know...

Hi dwlewis14424,
Drone from Magnaflow STREETS Duh!!!!!!
I would probably bet you had Magnaflows but they sure were not """STREETS"""
(((Unless a previous owner punched them out or something))))
I would guess you may have had Magnaflow Comps.

Ronnie, I know! I was dumbfounded, too, as I bought them based on your many endorsements that I had been following for a couple of years; took a bath on getting rid of them, too! They absolutely were "streets" drop-shipped directly from Magnaflow. My Mustang is an '11 auto convertible and I think that the gearing of the auto 3.7 had a lot to do with it. It was unbearable! My previous Mustang was a '10 GT which had Borla Tourings and I loved them, but as we know, there's no comparison of the sound of the v8's to the sixers no matter how we modify them or wish for it to be different. I'm glad that you & Mario have enjoyed the Magnaflows.

The thing is that I personally know of seven 3.7 V6 Mustangs that run the Streets and they all sound great with absolutely "NO" inside the car drone.
I do hear my pipes going down the highway and I just get "SOUND" and no drone at all.
I have a video on this post driving my car at highway speed across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and through the tunnels and the only annoyance I got is Tire Noise, My Streets are like music to my old ears.
Sorry yours did not sound good for you.
Ronnie

I agree Ronnie. This is the first time I have ever heard of someone complaining about 'drone' from Magnaflow 'Streets'. I'm on about 7 different Mustang Forums

It's really a new one to me.
Maybe because he has a convertible and hears the tire noise the Pirelli's make or something.
Maybe someone else can chime in that has Streets on a 3.7 V6 that has Drone.
I sure love the way my Streets sound going down the highway as well as cruising into a Cruise-in.
A nice deep old rumble.

Another thought on this... if I find a set of GT mufflers (2.5 inch inlet), is the only way to get the right size inlet (2.25 inch) to cut them off a set of V6 mufflers? Or is there a fitting or part that an exhaust shop might have? I've never seen them off in person, only in pictures, so I'm not sure exactly what it looks like...

No, it's not tire noise; it's loud drone that was intolerable! Like I said before, I had a 4.6 GT w/ Borla Tourings, and loved the amplified sound. My tires, (all season touring) weren't changed on the 3.7 either before or after the Magnaflows, and the previous (GT manual) axlebacks were returned to the 3.7.
I still say it's the combination of the 2.73 axle and the auto's gearing that creates the condition to drone and drone loudly at any speed above 45 mph.

Hmm, not sure why the streets would drone so badly if really at all.
Its the first I hear about intolerable drone from streets.

Could just be resonance at certain rpms and not actual drone. However it's just as annoying imo.

That's probably what it is. 2012, 3.7, 2.73, auto. I do tend to hear it under load at certain RPMs, more when the top is up. It may be more noticeable with our soft tops vs. hard tops. I ignore it or drop down a gear, but the wife notices it if I don't drop. I never mentioned it to her in the first place, but she says it hurts her ears so I know it exists. She brought it up again yesterday when coming home from a trip with the top up. I had even packed towels around the spare tire in the well and put thin sheets of styrofoam insulation under the carpet in the trunk when I first put them on. Is it a major issue or deal breaker? No. Does it exist in an auto ragtop with stock gears? Yes. Once the warranty runs out I plan to throw 3.55s in the car. That might also help to eliminate it as the car won't lug as much under load.

Thank you; you are able to describe the situation better than me.
I guess that I don't know the difference between resonance and drone, but it's irritating and definitely not the sound that I think of for a Mustang.
Putting the GT axle-backs back on made the car's exhaust quieter but deeper with more of a "Mustang Sound" although I would prefer a more aggressive "growl" especially at lower street speeds.

drone is resonance....the other thing about it is different folks are annoyed at different levels/frequencies.

gearing will change it. My MT V6 with 3.31 and Bassani's will have a touch around 2k if I'm lugging the motor (up hills) it's a reminder to upshift.

I agree, it really is the same thing.

I think you mean downshift.

Wonder if this is what I'm actually hearing in mine... resonance as opposed to drone. I know if i set the cruise control at 70, I hear something loud and constant, and it gets worse as the car opens the throttle to go up a slight hill, and goes away as the throttle closes coasting down the other side...

Next time you guys hear it, hit the button on the side of the shifter to lock out 6th if you have one. The sound will go away.

Not a lockout on the 2014, but when you shift into Sport Shift Mode, it drops down a gear and yes, it does mostly go away. Or it changes significantly, anyway.

What does Drone sound like?

Put your palms against your ears and Hum.

gearing will change it. My MT V6 with 3.31 and Bassani's will have a touch around 2k if I'm lugging the motor (up hills) it's a reminder to upshift.
I've always thought of drone as being a constant thing vs resonance being present only in certain circumstances. Both can be highly annoying.
