Last update to this post: 12-31-09. All new additions will be at bottom of this post.
Seems like V6 exhaust is one of the big topics. Now I think most of us are realistic and know we will never have that killer V8 sound, but if done right, the v6 can be made to sound sporty, strong, or just plain mean depending on how its done.
I'm continuously putting together a compilation of V6 exhausts I've come across mostly on these forums. Most will be manufacturer setups. I don't plan on posting every single custom made exhaust I find, but I have posted a few that sounded a bit unique, and had good information on the setup. Hope this helps some of you out there!
First up..the GMPP exhaust
with sound and pics. Much Thanks to TeccBoxx for his time with these vids and his thoughts!
. Now from what I understand, the GMPP exhausts are made by Borla, but the exhaust installed on this car is not the same model as the GM exhaust. According to Derin11, these are the Pro-X street
mufflers. There are 4 or 5 vids spread throughout this thead. Find the Borla Camaro exhaust below.
. First post in the thread lists two part numbers. First part has a link to a page with TWO sound files...take off and pass by. But the second part has no link to a sound file as of this writing. Link Below:
MRT Exhaust Version1...aka scrming exhaust V1
This began as a custom job done by member scrming and MRT, but now MRT is selling these kits. This thread shows some videos of him testing his car from take off, pass by, neighborhood crusing speeds, and even some track testing (camara mounted on side of car).
MRT Exhaust Version 2. Aka scrming exhaust V2
View this thread to view MRT's 2nd offering for the camaro. Its said to have less drone, with a bit of a smoother, lower tone than MRT's other kit.
has posted vids of their exhausts. 3 of them for the V6. (thanks to camaro guy for the notice)

. Car also has Airaid CAI, rest all stock. Link below takes you to page 13 of a thread focused on swapping the V8 exhausts with the V6. Look for post # 306.
JBA shorty headers:
Since they can change the exhaust note I decided to list these as well. There is more than one thread concerning these V6 headers:
member mrray13's thread
member scrming's thread
(be sure to check more than just page 1 of this thread for video examples...keep in mind scrming also has the MRT version 2 exhaust installed)
