Early in the year I installed Kooks LTH and a non-catted x-pipe. There is a rattle at idle.

Today, I went under the car to check clearances. I am convinced that it is resonance. It's a little annoying, but manageable.

I have magnaflow bullets, with a catted x, no resonators. They're loud, but mellow. I imagine the street spec would be pretty quiet.

Yea, I'm deciding on a exhaust which is louder then stock with a low rumble that won't anger my neighbors then maybe looking at one of the Ford power packs.

I kind of wish I would have gotten LTH. Can always wish for different or more but I am still happy with my car and not spending the extra money allowed me to pay for school 😂

I had Flowmaster Outlaws on my 2012. The drone was awful. I have Borla Atak on my 15 GT and love those. No drone at all and they sound great!

I went with Borla 3" Touring Catback and was pleasantly surprised at the tone. Always preferred an H over an X pipe but it wasn't bad. FYI, the Touring Catback comes with resonators which from my understanding is the difference between the sport and touring 3" Catback. Interestingly, I had a leak in a Weld at a resonator and Borla sent me a new set. Cut up the defective pipe, had a straight section welded in so I have had both the non resonator pipes and resonator pipes on. Only had the non resonator pipes on for a few months. Sounded good but a bit loud for my liking.
I also installed a 3" MBRP H pipe in place of the X pipe. Changed the tone a little, but not like I've heard on most videos comparing X pipe to H pipes...but I like it. Wasn't an exact swap either, needed 7" per side of 3" pipe as the Borla OA pipe is flared at the front and the MBRP H pipe is flared at the rear and doesn't quite reach the OA pipe.
Still have the cut off at the weld Borla resonators if anyone is interested.

Longtube headers, off road x pipe, stock over axle pipe, muffler deletes. Must say, VERY VERY loud but I personally love it. So much attention and so many compliments. Noise is not for everyone though.

Corsa Extremes, I absolutely love them. The only regret is that it took me a month and a half to make the decision and pull the trigger.

Those were the two I was deciding between too. Went w borla (Ford Racing usesBorla) and it's louder than stock but not obnoxious. Would love to hear a side by side though!

I have Flowmaster Outlaws on my 2012 GT. I love them. They are quiet if the car is driven gingerly but scream when the gas pedal is floored.

My car had them when I bought it but my neighbor has a 2015 GT with stock exhaust and all our other neighbors say they love the way mine sounds over his.

Regrets
"YES"
I ordered my Magnaflow streets after owning my Mustang for about two hours.
I wish I had ordered them sooner.
That is my only regret.

I regret the Magnaflow street axlebacks. The quality is great but they aren't loud enough for me. I also have long tubes and x pipe but the magnaflows aren't loud enough lol

before you trade your magnaflows.
Get a trusted friend to drive your Mustang as you stand outside and listen to the sound.
A nice deep rumble that is not going to give you a headache is a better sound going down the road then a overly loud obnoxious noise that you can hear while inside the car.
If you want the loud, trade.

What is really great is that there is a set of mufflers for everybody in our Mustang family.
I personally love my Magnaflow streets and there are guys and gals that love the Borla Ataks which are extremely obnoxious and LOUD
Get what you like and enjoy the music.

It sounds good and I appreciate the feedback. Do you think a resonator delete might make a little more noise without being obnoxious or ruining the good deep sound?

I've got Borla S-type. They are great with drone and do well at "normal" driving and can be loud at full throttle. I know I've got a 4.6L, but being DOHC, I think they are similar. I was going to get Magnaflows and ended up buying my second choice (Borlas) because of a great sale price. I think the new 5.0's sound like crap when they are too loud, so Magnaflows or Borla S-type for me all day, if I was driving a coyote.

Bought my 2011 GT used. The previous owner had welded Borla Atak Axle Backs on it. Way too loud and obnoxious for me. Looking to replace them with Kooks Axle Backs. I like the no rasp and more classic (as classic as I've heard for the Coyote) sound that I've heard on YouTube...I know that you need to hear them in person to get an accurate opinion, but don't have that luxury at the moment.
