Long tubes + O/R X + Roush

2013 5.0 I have roush axle backs on my coyote. I have found an amazing deal on some long tube headers and an offroad x pipe. I want to sound deadly but I also love for my car to be drivable and not drone you out. How bad is the drone gonna be if I add the long tubes and offroad x?

Deleting the cats will cause some drone regardless. That being said, sounds like a good set up. If it's too loud, just get some bullet type resonators welded in. That will quiet it down a couple of decibels.

I went off-road H... Had to add in resonators paired up with my axle-backs. Still didn't like the rasp and the smell. Ditched the resonators and went with high-flow cats. Got a little louder but no smell and no rasp, all muscle sound.

Yes....gas + deleted cats = stinky exhaust. E85 + deleted cats = sweet smell of corn!

I have a roush and I love the way my car sounds. With that said if u guys were in my shoes would u change the headers add h or x or delete the cat for performance wise and risk not liking the sound ? Or would u keep it as it is? I'm trying to figure out if the performance of any out weighs risking me not liking the sound

Long tubes + O/R X + Roush

Mines going to have longtubes and an off-road H. Then again going to do a custom catback/axleback exhaust system.

Because Roush sounds best with a stock exhaust set up on coyotes. Mess with anything else it sounds terrible.

Long tubes + O/R X + Roush

I was the same with mine. Then I started wanting it to be a little louder but keep the same tone. Very happy with my muffler swap.

Nobody is asking what brand of exhaust said "amazing deal" is? Because there are some good brands and then there are brands where the best use of the longtube is a doorstop.

I have this setup but with kooks headers and catless Xpipe and ermehgerd it's the coolest sounding exhaust just tooling around at low RPMs and when you get on it, it sounds like a jet. I have a video of my exhaust and what it sounds like on the interstate on my Instagram. There's zero drone with it as well regardless of RPMs.

If you're gonna do longtubes, stick with no more than an intermediate sound type of axelback. That's why most go with gt500. I right now have flowmaster outlaws and off-road h pipes, I'm assuming longtubes will be pretty close to my loudness! It can be a bit unbearable for a DD especially when you want to accelerate at all. People look at you like you're an *** during morning/afternoon traffic haha

Kooks, ARH or Dynatech if you are going to get full exhaust for anything 05-up. That is all.


Dynatech is on par with the Kooks quality wise and they are drastically cheaper. Still not BBK or MAC prices but you do get what you pay for especially when it comes to exhaust kits.

This is why I still don't understand why all my buddies think BBK's stuff is the best on the market...

Thanks for all the help guys! To be honest I think after readying all of these comments the long tubes are gonna be too loud for me. I also was only getting the x pipe becuase it was part if the deal. I personally like the way an H pipe sounds better. That being said. Would I be better off to buy a Pypes offroad h pipe or just get cat deletes and keep my factory h pipe? I thinkni will be happier with this sound and it will also not be as loud without the long tubes. I want a drivable car that sounds aggressive but I do not want a race car.

Off road anything is going to be loud man. Not for daily driving unless you give zero fawwks about being loud and making the poor people behind you suffer through your fumes

Pypes is one of the brands I meant when I was saying some brands are better used for doorstops.

Because of cost and they've convinced themselves that "they aren't that bad".

I've had some BBK products that were ok, but nothing they make has made me like "omg I have to have that now" ever...

I'm going to have to take the BBK headers that came on the car I have now and get them blasted/redone while the rest of the motor that is in there looks new. Unless someone took used headers and installed them which might be the case because they also used a flowtech X pipe which is THE worst X pipe ever made for any Mustang ever.

You aren't just going to get new headers and a midpipe? How much does blasting and coating cost?

I already got a new mid pipe. Its the VRS (UPR) X with cats and its happily boxed up in the corner waiting to be installed.

And getting these BBKs blasted and coated and sent back is $120 shipped. The corrosion is just on the surface right now so no reason to spend $$$ to replace.

The smell isn't that bad. Went away for me in a week after the exhaust was settled with deposits.

Out of all the things ppl might consider a downside to an offroad exhaust... it baffles me when ppl say smell. It smells glorious. Then again, I'm used to smelling burnt Jet A all day so who knows lol.

Flow tech is still in business? I recall using one of their O/R H pipes on my '94 GT. Bad fit and it hung waaaaay too low...always sparking and dragging on bumps, rr tracks, etc.
