Exhaust sound

Might be a stupid question, but anyway you guys think I can replicate this sound without the headers? I listened to the catback and just don't hear the sound I want without those headers. Or do I have to get headers to get that sound what I want. Here is the video:

Lmk what you guys think. Thanks.

Your best bet is 3" exhaust with the resonators gone.

That and if you can get a mid pipe that's a larger diameter. It's really hard to beat the sound long tubes give. They get really throaty and deep.

That's what I love. Just sooo much money for them and the install is a PITA. So do you have a preferred exhaust setup? Like what brand midpipe and exhaust?

I went with Kooks 1 7/8 long tubes with all 3" exhaust. I had the Roush mufflers but blew out 2 sets of them. No idea why but it was the driver side every time. I run the MBRP's stainless steel 3". Doesn't sound half bad does have some drone because of larger piping and a larger set of long tubes.

Nice!! I have the roush axleback on now. Sounds good but want more of a deep tone. I have been looking at stainless power longtubes and catted x. Any thoughts on those? I am aware they are the knockoff chinese made version of Stainless works. But people who have them seem to love them and fit perfect. Maybe I'll save up for those and get some gt500 mufflers along the way.

I'd personally look at American Racing Headers (ARH) or Kooks. I personally wouldn't put the stainless power ones on my car. Every one has there preferences though. Gains between them all are really kind of minimal so it's all on what the user wants.

I would but I'm on a budget. Trust me man I would get the higher quality headers in a heartbeat. Just seems like Stainless power is the best budget header. Or pypes, they seem to be alright also. Just want that Longtube sound lol and some power on top of it

Lol, fitment issues? Pypes wasn't my first choice either.. Did you install headers yourself or get someone to install them for you? If so, how much was the labor if you dont mind me asking. Thanks.

I installed them my self only took a few hours with a buddies help. Only owned the car two months before putting in full exhaust and a full suspension. Doing headers on these cars is actually really easy just take the starter off, lift the motor from the trans, take the motor mounts out and disconnect the steering shaft and you have a ton of room to work with.

Oh, ok. Doesn't sound too menacing. How much do you think labor would be to install them?

Get longtubes and an offroad h if you want deep. Pair it with any middle of the road axleback. Gt500 will quiet it down a lot. But if cabin noise bothers you then do those. I have offroad h pipes with outlaws and they are deep. Many levels deeper than all the standard 5.0 here who all go X pipe

Best sound I've heard by far is no mufflers, no resonators, x pipe with StainlessWorks Long tube headers. Granted you're looking at like 1500 bucks for the headers and x pipe.

Love the sound of the stainless works. Looking at stainless power, seem to be the same thing except the made in China thing

I got a quote for 400$ to have them installed but they're super easy to do.
