I'm not sure exactly what makes the SVT exhaust different. I believe the tubing is wider (2.25" vs 2" maybe?). It gives a great tone though, low and snarly. The Borla pretty much amplified and nastified the stock tone.

Have it on the car now, and nope it's not droney. I do have the factory cat, and the Borla resonator in place, so it's not a whole lot louder than stock. I'm debating whether or not I want moar lowd, either by going ORP/HFC or removing the resonator. What I do not want is to trade the awesome deep tone for the ricey sound.
