Question Exhast Sound

Im a few days away from ordering my exhuast, it seems that most Fords i hear with upgraded exhausts and/or straight piped seem to sound like there gargling under water and sounds horrible, kinda like its missin out almost. Im not to sure exactly how to explain it but with all the Ford guys out there someone has to know what im talkin about. Im curiuos as to what causes this and how can i fix it to where it actually sounds good and not like the trucks drowning

If you have a good friend that does custom tunes, you can change the sound a little. But like it was said before, just keep the muffler on.

I like my exhaust LOUD and you get used to it fast. If you keep the windows up, you don't hear it as bad.

Me and a friend were tossing around the idea putting and H-pipe similar to what the Mustangs have to try and prevent smoke from coming out one stack before the other, but should also smooth out the tone since that is why the mustangs get there sound from.
The only place to really put and H-pipe in though, would be in the up pipes wich could help smooth out the flow into the turbo aswell.

If you were to put it the up pipe wouldn't get what you want. The hole purpose of the H pipe is to smoth/mix the exaust after the muffler, thats how they get that great sound. Or if you had true duel you want the mix the exahust just befor the exit.

The purpose of and H-pipe is equalize the backpressure between all 8 cylinders. And if you look at a Mustang, the H-Pipe is BEFORE the mufflers!!!

Also, with a cat you wouldn't get that noise. Listen to the 6.0's. But who wants one of those? (cat or the 6.0l)
