I'm in the market for some mufflers for my v6 2013 stang and I was wondering if anyone tried to put greddy exhaust on their stang yet? I'm looking for some exhaust that sound very similar to this http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aPuLZVcgKyQ thanks for the help guys!

I know it's a muscle, but those sound does sound mean to me, maybe not that aggressive but the intake can take care of that.

How can an intake make it sound aggressive? Mine just makes a cool sucking noise

It can open a few decibels but it won't change the overall tone. No offense man but I sounds like in import and with an intake people will call you out on the sucking noise saying its a "turbo". Just my .02 man.

If someone thinks you have a turbo from that, they're an idiot. And an intake does make the engine sound meaner... to the passengers. I don't think you can really hear it outside the car. It's the same reason the GT's have a sound tube. You hear the combustion of the engine from the sound traveling up the intake manifold and out the throttle body. It's a very distinct sound similar to an exhaust and makes the car sound more aggressive in the inside definitely. If you had an intake, you should know this from personal experience.

I don't mind the tuner sound at all. Anything is preferable to raspy, drony crap.

Intake= air sucker. Exhaust= air blower. Somewhere between those magic happens and sound is produced and heard via vibrations into the ear canals. I've heard intakes on a few model ranges and they just don't change the tone overall just the loudness. But sanguin( trying to remember name as I forgot how to spell it. My b) knows his stuff. I mean, he did make a working rigged CAI. That's ingenuity.

when i bought my last sixxer it had a DC exhaust on it from a tuner...sounded better then a lot of aftermarket mufflers for the 3.9L. i'd say if you like it OP go for it. your car so you have to hear it daily so drive what you like, and don't listen to anyone else

Cut the sound box off of your V6 stock air tube. fiberglass the open hole, re-paint. I did this on my 2011 V6.

Take it for a ride and step on the gas pedal. You will have the same sound as the sound tubes of the GT's.

One weekend of work. Takes time for the fiberglass to set; sanding, and painting the tube. No extra HP or MPG, but you'll get the sound of the acceleration you're looking for, and have lots of coin in your pocket, as this cheap mod is much less than a CAI, plus the CAI's do nothing in the way of HP gains on our V6's. There's a Utube from "Jay Leno's Garage" where he interviews a 2013 Boss 302 with a Ford engineer. Google it and watch it. The Ford Engineer states that a CAI does nothing in the way of any HP gains on the Boss 302. Same as the V6. This stock air box was done right; can't improve it.

If you want sound, then do the mod of cutting off the sound muffler (square box on air tube). I'm lazy in taking pictures of these sort of mods, as it takes time away from doing the work itself. Easy mod to do on your stock intake.

Where is the sound tube located?

No "sound tube" on the V6, but was installed on the GT's. Perhaps my wording was not good. I should have said "sound muffler"

One popular mod is to install the sound tube on the V6's; this requires drilling and installing a 90 degree fitting (on the sound muffler part of the stock air tube; it's the square looking box molded onto the air tube), then buying the sound tube from a GT owner. Most GT owners remove them. Don't know exactly why; some say they are "cheezy", some remove them when they go the way of a CAI.

Another way to get the "sound" of excelleration is to simply cut off the muffler box of your stock air tube (tube that runs from the throttle body to the air filter box. This square box acts as a muffler to silence the air/combustion noise when the right pedal (formally known as a "gas" pedal) is pressed hard.

For about 3 months, I ran with the sound tube mod. I then got bored one weekend and cut off the "muffler box", fiberglassed the hole, and am currently running with that. Plenty of "sound" when you hit the gas pedal, plus lots of extra money in your wallet, as the stock air system already flows great amounts of air, and it's already a "cold air intake", as it draws cool air from the front of the grill. Same sound with this mod as installing an aftermarket CAI, but for lots less in shelling out money. I like that part!

So, two choices for sound.
