Making my 2008 V6 louder

I have a 2008 V6 Mustang with the following upgrades:
-single Borla axle back exhaust
-shorty Steeda headers
- K&N cold air intake
-BBK 70mm throttle body
All of which has been bama tuned.

Given all my after market accessories, I am still not completely pleased with the sound of my mustang. My question is what are additional upgrades I can do to give me that low raspy rumble coming from my mustang. Thanks.

I have considered the idea of camming it, but based on research it seems nearly impossible to find a camshaft for a v6 mustang within the 05-09 range. Could anyone help me on this?

Welcome to AFM-Looking like ARMANDhammer8 beat me to it on this but if you're looking to make your V6 louder as well as pick up a small bump in HP check out a set of Long Tubes Headers and an Off Road Y Pipe and you're good to go! Definitely hold onto the Borla Axle Back as well because it can still be used! Let me know if you have any other questions and I'm here to help!

great answers everyone!! Our rear axles are definitely a keeper and for good measure. We're known for our top quality and amazing sound. As far as adding on to your volume and performance - I would recommend our headers with x pipe - especially if you live in a state where performance is "friendly". enoy and happy motoring!
