3.7L Custom Exhaust Suggestions

Ok, so, I absolutely hate the sound of custom exhausts, there I said it. Usually, given the choice, Ill take the stock exhaust note every single time. Sadly that is not the case on my 2014 V6. While the exhaust note isn't bad, its not that different from my Dad's Rav4...and that's a problem. So my question is, can anyone suggest an aftermarket exhaust system that will give me a bit more of a mustang sounding tone without that gaudy "I just dropped 2 grand to make my car sound like something its not" tone?
Apologies to exhaust guys, that's just my opinion
Thanks

I went with the FRPP sport mufflers because they were Ford parts.When I first installed them they sounded just a little more aggressive than stock and had none of the aftermarket problems. Once I added the longtubes, they came into their own, The car now sound aggressive, like a performance car should, and still no adverse effects. A lot of the guys I hang around with have other set ups, and all of them like the sound of mine. The car has very good manners and when you want it, it is there.

Ive heard the FRPP sport axle backs in person. They have a deep start and idle. Very similar to stock. When you hit the gas it roars (as much as a v6 can) more than it screams. But its still I think a nice subtle upgrade over stock.

I've heard the Borla Ataks with LTs, Catted X, and Resonators. Those were a lot louder with much more popping. Deep too but I dont think youd really be into having your mustang sound that way. Atleast from what youve described.

If you don't like aftermarket exhaust sounds but want your mustang to sound like a mustang when you get on it, just get an Airaid intake.

If you want your mustang to make sounds all the time (including idle and cruise), then get exhaust.

watch from 15 seconds to 20 seconds or so to hear an Airaid hole shot with the windows down:



I get many compliments on how good my car sounds from other autocrossers.

I personally like the Borla Touring system, but I'm having quite the issue with the cost. It seems... way too expensive for something that doesn't really do anything. Firstworldproblems

GT500 style spoiler. Rear tint. Plasti-dip wheels. Bama 93H tune. Now looking for a Borla Touring setup that won't cost me way too much!
