Looking to change my axle-back exhaust again.

Hey guys,

I'm going to be doing the gt500 quad-tip mod soon and I'm looking to change the sound again while I'm at it. Right now I have a roush axle-back and an offroad xpipe which is pretty loud. I'm don't mind getting something that'll quiet the car down a little, but at the same time I don't want it to be "stock" quiet. I was looking at magnaflow street series because of the deep tone but I'm worried if it's gonna have an overwhelming drone to it. My Roush has some drone but not anything that drives my nerves bad.

Do any of you guys have experience with the MF street series and O/R xpipe? Or what would you recommend?

Tons of discussion on here but the short answer is, if you want great sound and no drone, you need to buy Borla or Corsa.

No manufacturer recommendations. Just some pithy words.

Drone and noise, and a person’s tolerance for it, can be quite subjective. One persons “deep and mellow” is another’s headache.

I have found my tolerance for noisy pipes has decreased as I have gotten older, and started saying things like, “Get off my lawn!” Although my kids still tell me to turn the radio down l, so I’m probably OK.

My car came with a cat back system. When I was daily driving it or driving any distance, it made me crazy. And I went back to stock. As I turned the car to more of a track car, I put it back on.

Sound clips on the net are not representative. Best bet is to find some local cars and see if you can experience some different systems first hand.

:-)

esit to add: good luck. And have fun with the shopping process

Yeah you're right. My tolerance for loud pipes has change a bit over the last couple years for sure. I'm considering magnaflow and Corsa's least aggressive axle backs in hopes to bring the volume down a little. Going to a local car meet to check out other exhaust systems wouldn't be a bad idea.

I've considered Corsa sport and the Borla S-type. They're up there in price but if they provide the sound I want I'll spend the extra pennies.

I've had my S-Types for about 100k miles now and there's zero drone. That's why they're more expensive than Magnaflow. It's so worth it.

I have the Kook's with the stock H pipe and cats. I like the sound, not too obnoxious, but there is a narrow band around 2000 rpm's where there is some drone. Just don't cruise at that engine speed and its great. Luckily with the 6 speed manual I can just change gears to avoid it.

And this guy is right too!

Your tolerance for loud, raspy and drone can not be judged by us. For me just the GT500 ab was good enough most times. Sometimes at the track I wished for res delete in addition, but then I'd start it up early in the morning and I'd wish it was more quiet again. So you're the only one who can make the right choice for you.

I saw the Borla S-types brought up. I have the Ford Racing ones (just re-branded S-types) with res. deletes and I have ZERO drone. Not quite as loud as the corsa or roush, but still have plenty of bark and a nice deep rumble. I still have the sock mid-pipe and cats though, so take that with a grain of salt.
