Drone at first, but fading
These sound amazing from the outside, and have since the first startup. The problem is inside the car, where these produce a notable drone at the higher loads associated with climbing grades, either slowly or up to 50 mph. It is not so much of an issue under hard acceleration though. Thankfully, the drone seems to be subsiding as they settle in. These are on the wife's 2014 V6 Auto Convertible. When I drive it, I tend to use the sport manual mode which can help avoid some of the drone. I believe that the car being a convertible may contribute to the amount of un-awesome noise makes it's way into the cabin. The hangar bars were not aligned straight on either muffler, and both mufflers needed to have plenty of adjustments made to the hangars in order to hang properly in all three dimensions. When installing, do yourself a favor and experience the childlike giddiness that comes with a few revs with no mufflers installed. The V6 honestly sounds like a complete beast when everything is off.Helpful (5)

Deep Mellow Throaty Sound
I've researched mufflers for a long time, did a lot of head scratching(big investment if your wife doesn't like the sound) and finally settled on the Ford Performance Sport Axle-Back mufflers for my 2011 3.7. I am mightily impressed as I didn't want loud, raspy mufflers. These have a deep, mellow throaty sound and there is absolutely no drone at highway speeds(75 - 80). These mufflers are made by Borla for Ford and they perform exactly as advertised. I highly recommend these mufflers!Helpful (7)

Worth every penny
These are not very loud at all. I have a soft top and wanted to add some character to my stang but at the same time I didn't want anything crazy loud. The mufflers can only be heard during first start up and when accelerating. Once you're coasting they come to a rest and you can barely notice them. If you want that loud deep throaty low end sound, then these are NOT for you. Sound is more midrange. But if you're like me and just wanted to add slight character, then I recommend them. Like I said, I have a soft top and can still enjoy my music in the cab even when the top is down. Performance ive notice just a slightly better pick up from the stock but I definitely noticed a difference. I also haven't experienced any droning problems, even at 90mph. Hope that helps.Helpful (7)

Modified '13 V6
Ford Perf. Sport mufflers are pricey to begin with, and quieter than I thought they would be. Being straight-thru, they must be efficient tho'.Helpful (10)
Weep holes I was wondering if these mufflers need weep holes drilled in them, not to stop rust since they are SS but due to thwe fact if water collects in them, it could effect the sound. Does anyone know? Love these mufflers!!! Sound awesome.
I had these installed mid Sept. Just had them off to put the factory back on for the winter. Quite a lot of water build up in just 2 months!!! Have drained them and drilled 2 small 3/16ths holes on the lower leading edge to solve the problem when they go back on in the spring. If you look at the factory mufflers they have the same 2 holes already drilled into them. Anyone installing these should do the same. Perhaps it should be done by Ford Racing!!
How much do these weigh?
Shipped weight is 29 lbs.
I have a bbk long tube header with offroad x pipe want a less raspy muffler how bad is the raspiness of these mufflers
This axle back will have minimal rasp with it and will have a deeper tone. Now with the off-road X-pipe you will still have some rasp with the car.
Do I need to order 2? The price says "$669.97 (each)" but the "what's in the box" says 2 mufflers are included. So am I getting 2 mufflers for that price or 2 for around $1340?
The Ford Performance Sport Axle-Back Exhaust is a complete axleback exhaust kit, so ordering 1 kit will get you 2 mufflers, with 2 tips and 2 sections of piping to attach to the OEM piping.
Does this exhaust increase the HP at all? If so, by how much? Is there any drone at any speed?
Axle backs will not really increase the horse power at all. You will get a little better airflow resulting in very minor numbers. However the Ford Performance Sport Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 V6) is a great sounding exhaust however drone does very on a case by case situation.
Realistically the numbers are small 3 to 5. A small increase in fuel economy depending on your driving habits.
This Ford Racing Sport Axle-back will definitely fit your 2013 V6 without any problems! Enjoy!
