I have this kit on my Fusion I spoke directly with MRT before I bought it and asked why they didn't do mufflers. They said they tried mufflers but it sounded just like stock does. To me it sounds awesome in person the video makes it sound way different. I think if the large resonator was deleted and you had mufflers it would make a difference but in keeping the resonator it's pointless to do mufflers. IMHOIronically, I think it actually sounds more fitting for the fusion. Much louder than stock, but not obnoxious.
Agree, small displacement = small exhaust note.I believe this is the reality. I don't think it will be possible to get this small engine to sound like a mean muscle car like I would hope.
yup... there is no getting around physics. I've heard some of the 3.5's and they can get semi-throaty, but it ultimately still sounds like a 6Agree, small displacement = small exhaust note.
A V6 (with 3 exhaust strokes per revolution) does not and cannot sound like a V8 (with 4 exhaust strokes per revolution) .
If you want the fantastic sound of a muscle car V8, your going to need a V8 to start with.
Yup... you can't fool physics. Our snails also affect the exhaust note in a significant way that you can't equally compare it to an NA engine. With that said, I do think that looking at other 'good' sounding v6 setups is a great place to start though. So far most of the exhausts I've heard on the 2.7 sound somewhat 'meh', but there also hasn't been any real experimentation to my knowledge (X/H pipes, swapping our resonator/muffler combos/etc)There are so many factors that go into what makes the exhaust sound the way it does beyond cylinder count and exhaust layout that its almost impossible to compare them. Firing order, crank configuration, bore/stroke ratio, displacement, cam, etc.
