Exhaust

Having a change of heart and going to get my stock midpipe modified to an h pipe. My current setup is shorties, offroad h pipe, 18 in resonators and roush ab. Im going to keep my stock cats and delete the stock resonators. My question is if its better to keep my stock resonators or keep my aftermarket resonators when i modify it since i already have some welded on my overaxle pipes. Does placement of the resonators affect the sound in anyway? Wanting to get rid of the 3k rasp the car has and just going to keep it like that. If it stays good then its my last mod for good.

I think your on a 'quest' to find something you won't find with your Roush axle backs

What kind of sound are you wanting overall? Loud and Raspy? Low with some rumble?

When it comes to mufflers (or anything really), you get what you pay for. You pay 400-500 for New mufflers then they typically won't be perfect all around. I always stuck with Borla S Types myself. I had them on my 2011 v6, 2014 v6, and now my 2016 GT.

I have tried many different setups. Trident ABs, Flowmaster ABs, Magnaflow ABs, etc. If you want no rasp then I personally would say just drop the current exhaust setup and get some S Types. If you want a really low but nice tone, get some shorty headers to go with the S Types. Stock mid pipe though.

We will be working on buddy's '14 V6 right after we finished installing the new bumper and bushwacker fender flares on his current truck project. He's looking between Flowmaster and Borla S type. Been checking some comparison vids, I prefer Borla.

Exhaust systems are definitely something that you DO NOT get what you pay for.

Take a Magnaflow axle back for example. The going rate for a Mustang axle back is $600 - $650. You can buy the same Magnaflow mufflers for $70 each and a set of tips for $50. If you can't weld it will be around $100 to have a muffler shop do it. That is less than $300 for the same thing. You can get down close to $200 if you buy Jones Exhaust mufflers which are a Magnaflow knock off.

Works the same way with the x-pipe and exhaust pipe. exhaust shop can make it way cheaper then what you can get it from online like cj pony parts or AM. You get stuck with buying the headers though. At least what the one shop in Florida told me

There is a shop near me called Tubular Automotive that makes headers too. Their header business is mostly custom work for hot rods and engine swaps.

^^This^^
Borla for example,is WAY and I mean WAY overpriced.
People don't realized that your looking at like 30-50$ worth of SS, and once the jigs are made for mass production they just spit them out.
The mark up is absolutely insane, and when combined with good marketing to feed people what they want to here customers can then feel good about themselves and try to justify paying nearly 1k for a set of mufflers that are worth less then a tenth of that to produce.
