I love the sound of my V6 with Roush axle backs for 2 reasons:
1. It's loud as heck
2. My wife won't drive it since I put them on

This is awfully subjective. But the post above is exactly why I didn't want to get any axle backs whatsoever. No offense to you. But coming from previous V8 mustangs before, I know that sound is just part of the equation. My '94 chopped like it was going to stall any second half the time. But I couldn't hold a candle to a stock coyote.

That being said, with respect to the 3.7 in particular, it has a unique, almost exotic sound to it. It's almost counterintuitive to what most people would expect to hear out of a mustang but, it sounds good nonetheless. Now, if only there were a way to eliminate that god awful popping on deceleration, I'd really enjoy opening this exhaust up - just a tad. I can't say I'd fathom that spending $600+ on average for an axle back is tantamount to gaining any respectable difference in horsepower over stock but, if I happen to come across something that retained the nature of the stock system but simply increased the volume a tad (Corsa, perhaps), I just might take the dive.

I like the sound of the V6, but I like the sound of many types of engines. For displacement and its technology the Offy 4 Cyl they ran at Indy was one awesome sounding engine. The stock exhaust note on the Mustang does improve with age, as I can testify based on the 53K mile. unit that I traded in for the 14. However, contrary to what someone said earlier, I have heard stock mufflers paired with off road x/h pipes and its like the same notes amplified. I think that is the route I will take as it adds volume and hp.
