I'll start looking for a H pipe. Thanks for the heads up
Stock with resonator delete is super tinny sounding. Pair the resonator with a quieter set of mufflers. The Roush is among the three loudest.

There is mixed reviews for a H pipe with the stock mufflers. Stock exhaust on the highway is reasonably quiet even at 3k RPM. I'd prefer to have the Active exhaust, like on the 2019.

Yea I agree, I do not like that tinny sound at all. It will be a nice quiet axle back for me, retaining my stock resonator.

A couple of weeks ago I purchased a 2016 GT with a Roush axle-back exhaust already installed on it. I am not the type who likes a very loud/drone heavy exhaust. Any suggestions on what I should replace it with?
Stock stuff. Very quiet.

The car is silent on the freeway. Very nice.

Just go back to stock. A lot of these systems that everyone are mentioning are straight through. While yes some of those systems are quiet, you get on them and they BARK. And that's because they are straight through. As the exhaust and sound energy increases and moves faster, the muffling effect gets less and less.

I have the FP touring cat back. I'm quite pleased with it. If I remember correctly it may be quieter than the roush ax back that a friend had, but it barks on cold starts.

Another vote for the Ford Performance Touring axle back, with the stock resonator. Love mine, not obnoxious at all.

Try to meet up with some folks from a Mustang club meet or go to car meets and have a listen to different setups. There's nothing like hearing an exhaust in-person vs a YouTube video.

Anyone done any sound testing with various combinations? I really want to run Laguna Seca but they have a 93db limit. I know im well over that with an X-pipe and the FP by Borla Sport mufflers, I wonder if switching to the touring versions would get me even close to that? I have heard Laguna will often let it slide if your close like 94-95db, and once you know where they are checking you can just lift a little to get under.
How do they measure that... if you are at idle you will pass or even at 2-3K RPM... but at WOT you are way above that even with full factory...

I am not sure for GT's, but I just ordered an AWE touring axle back for my ecoboost, I like the sound and people say no drone and not too bad. a quieter MBRP essentially, but a GT with it could be a different story.

Not cheap though.
