2013 v6 sound questions

I have a 2013 v6. I installed borla ATAK exhaust on it and love the sound. Obviously I know it can never sound like a v8 because that sound is truly one of a kind but what could I put on it as well to make it sound deeper and more "throaty"?

i.e. shorts vs long tube headers, throttle body, etc

Thanks for any advice

Shorty headers will deepen the exhaust note, but there are currently few options available for the 3.7. I am waiting for someone to make stainless shorties. LT headers require an aftermarket X pipe which is available with or without catalytic converters. LT's typically amplify the V6 raspiness. Some people are running LT's, catted X, and resonators ahead of the mufflers and that cuts down on the rasp. This setup will require a tune.

Shorty headers are certainly your first step in that aspect, I would say. The next would be some form of resonated exhaust from thereon. If you go to YouTube and look at some videos, you'll see what I mean. For instance, the ATAK's are loud. Plain and simple. Other than adding some resonators to your stock piping, you're not going to do much else to it besides amplify the sound exponentially.

Shorties are gonna give you a deep throaty sound through the revs.

Will shorties increase the rasp? I'm going to add resonators eventually to help reduce the Roush rasp. If shorties can deepen the tone even more I may go that route in addition to resonators.

Also, I thought ceramic was better than stainless? I could be backwards

From all accounts, shorties seem to reduce rasp and deepen the tone.

Ceramic is better than chrome, but stainless will not rust like a ceramic or chrome coated/ plated mild steel header.
