I bought this Magnaflow cat-back exhaust for my 2010 Fusion 3.0L SEL because 1) I wanted to replace the plain factory exhaust, 2) can't go wrong with stainless steel construction and 3) it looks amazing - especially the huge 4in tips. I've heard plenty of sound clips of various 2010-2012 V6 Fusions with aftermarket exhaust systems and the Magnaflow seemed to be a nice compromise in sound. Most importantly, Magnaflow did not compromise in the quality of their product. I'm 58 yrs old and I also grew up during the Muscle Car era. I've owned several hot-rodded Mustangs that I’ve raced on road courses and I always come back to Magnaflow for my vehicles - including my 2001 Kenne Bell Supercharged Ford Escape 3.0L V6 4X4 XLT. I have not personally experienced any drone with this exhaust. Instead, it creates a finely tuned European V6 sound akin to a BMW M3 at WOT that I very much welcome and enjoy. At initial startup and idle, the exhaust has a nice deep, guttural tone to it. This exhaust combined with my Steeda CAI Power Pack and custom Steeda 93 octane tune are what this Fusion needed to wake it up and she gets up and goes now. Also, it won't wake the neighbors up at dusk or dawn like my 2006 Kenne Bell Supercharged Mustang GT with too many mods to mention here does - my Mustang also has a Magnaflow catted Tru-X X-Pipe. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.
