Do these engines sound the same? I've read that the Ford 3.8 was just a ripoff of the Buick V6. If that's the case wouldn't these engines essentially be the same? Wouldn't they produce the same sound if they had the same exhaust?

The reason I'm asking is because I found a video of a cammed 3.8 Firebird with some Borla XR1 mufflers on it and it sounds amazing. I'm trying to figure out if my 2000 V6 mustang would sound the same with those mufflers. I have a Borla S Type catback on mine currently with MAC LTs and MAC O/R H Pipe. It can get really raspy. The video of the Firebird has no rasp in it. It sounds mean with those XR1 mufflers on it.

Here's the video:

Does anyone know of anyone putting the XR1s on a 3.8 V6 mustang? The only videos I found were with 3.8 Firebirds and Camaros. I'd like to talk to anyone who used these if I can.

If I remember right it's the same as a Buick but that video sounds like the cam is what made the engine sound good
