V6 exhaust on a 5.0??

Ok guys I feel really dumb about this but...I got a screwed over on craigslist...I bought what I thought were borla s types for my 5.0 and I just put them on a while ago..it sounds like.....not loud at all...before, I had stock manifolds and off road jba h pipe with roush...that was loud and sounded amazing but I just went long tubes so I bought those s types...or so I thought..anyways the shop called me and said everything was ready and I was more than dissapointed at what I heard when I got there...it's not loud at all...my brothers v6 with nothing but roush axelbacks sounds 10x louder....BTW I got jba longtube headers with catted x pipe...sooooo could anyone please help and explain what it could be....it honestly almost sounds the same as stock when I bought my stang with the stock axelbacks. I'm very dissapointed....on a good note I do feel the extra power from the long tubes so at least I got somethin to be happy about.

Roush axle backs are WAY louder than Borla S types regardless of your LTs.
Two TOTALLY different designed mufflers, chambered vs flow through

1. What makes you think your borlas are from a v6? Just because they're quite doesn't mean they're from a 3.7, which run 2.25" inlet.. As opposed to 2.75" for GTs. Smaller inlet is supposed to provide a touch louder sound than a bigger one (be more deep). I had s types from my 3.7 on 5.0 for about a week, and then swapped em out when I got borlas made specifically for my GT. Yes the 3.7 mufflers were just a touch louder.

2. Did you ask your exhaust shop if the mufflers you gave them bolted right in, or if they have to cut and weld inlet pipes?

3. Mufflers get quiter over time, carbon deposits, more sound absorption and what not. So quite possibly the pair you purchased was already broken in. Hence why theyre tad bit quiter.

I've had both and I have to disagree. The Borla s types were just as loud. The Roush was louder at wot but that's it.

The s type v6 has a 2.5 inch inlet pipe and the GT has 2.75 inlet.

This is gonna sound dumb but does anyone think they might have left like a rag inside the piping?? I don't know much about exhaust so I don't know if that's possible.

If they did, you won't be typing this right now due to carbon monoxide so I don't think it is.. I have the s types and touring and definitely my stype is much louder, you might have the Touring.

Yup I have no popping at all when I had my touring but with my s type I can hear some popping specially when I use sport mode while down shifting. The only bad thing is you can't tell the Touring and s type from what it looks. They look the same except the atak.

Damn yea before I bought them on craigslist I did try to find info as far as how to tell them apart because I was a little skeptical if they were really s types but I'm pretty sure I have the touring. I don't like how they sound so I'm gonna put the roush back on and see how it sounds. I figured since I out long tubes it was still gonna be pretty loud but nope.

Longtubes will actually make your car quieter I've heard from some people on here.

I just put back on my roush axelbacks and it's still quiet as ****...I'm disappointed at these long tubes. Maybe I should take off the cats, but even then It should be loud. It was louder with nothing but the roush axelbacks when my car was bone stock then now with longtubes and catted x pipe and these cats are high flow cats and not those restrictive stock cats. I just dont know anymore lol

Here is an option

You have long tube, You have Hi-Flow cats.
Go to your Muffler Shop
Just have them build a straight pipe from each cat to replace the pipes and mufflers on your car now. Forget about an H or X pipe and just use two pipes back over the axle and you will be done.

He should've researched first. Long tubes make your car quieter. Simple as that. Run no mufflers or resonators now to achieve loud. If that's isn't loud enough, remove that cats.

Remove your resonators that will definitely help. I thought the LTS had done that for you like it does with the 3.7.
