2011 V6 Exhaust Time

Hey fellas,

I'm needing to get a new exhaust. It's been a while since I was first checking into them when I first got the car over 3 years ago.

Been doing a lot of research and listening to sound clips and videos to decide, but I wanted some feedback from you guys who actually have or heard these in person.

From what I've seen so far, these 3 I like so far:

1. Ford Racing Sport
2. Roush
3. MRT

I don't want anything crazy loud, just somethin to give it some more sound than the stock system.

Thanks in advance!

Allied resonators....available nationwide, about 1/2 the price of the ones you mention (BTW they build most of those for those mfgs) deep tone, low rumble and available in 10" to 38" lengths and any diameter you would need.

I didn't think they sounded crazy loud. Then again it's hard to tell from clips on the computer. Thanks for the input!

I'm sure people with the Roush mufflers will chime in. They are very loud in my opinion. Heard a V6 with them the other day.

I'm also searching an exhaust for my V6, and I was between Ford Racing Sport and Magnaflow, but I think I'll be going with the Ford Racing Sport. Like others said, Roush is way too loud for me.

I too have been looking at new ABs. I really like the Borlas but, as with the Ford's, very expensive. Best I found them for is $566 but still pretty steep. Will be interested to hear the other options.

Roush crew checking in.

They are loud as hell, but its good on a v8.

Would not recommend for a v6, would probably sounds like a weed whacker.

+1...I definitely agree. Might as well cross roush off the list now.

Thanks for the info guys - looks like I'll be crossing Roush off the list.

When I was first looking a while back, the Ford Racing Sport is what I was pretty set on although it is pricey.

Anyone have any experience with the MRT axlebacks?

Where did you manage to find them for $566? I haven't seen them anywhere near that.

Borla Touring and FRPP Touring pretty much the same and as far as I have heard the quietest of the aftermarkets.

Deep at idle and under 3000rpm but some growl when you get on it. Some resonance on the highway at low rpms in 5th and 6th, like 1700-2000rpm, have to stay higher rpm's to be quieter.

Roushs I have heard kind of raspy.

Ain't going to sound like a V8 but sounds decent, its too quiet stock!

Ford Racing Sport! best thing I've ever bought. I can't tell you how many guys hear it on idle and say "5.0?" obviously its nothing like a 5.0 while driving but it sounds great. id say classy loud under normal acceleration and on full throttle it definitely turns heads. every time I'm in a tunnel i have to drop down a gear and go. people say who am i trying to impress when i go full throttle… and the answer to that is I'm impressing myself. love ford racing sport
