Help wife wants her rs to sound more aggressive

Wife would like her rs to sound more like my ss. I know it will never sound as good but is there a way to have it sound less like a weedwacker

Yes this combination is very aggressive and low tone and not raspy. I have a supercharged 6 making close to 500 crank hp go with OBX long tube headers, flow master axle back, and you must add the magma flow resonated x pipe to remove drone. If I didn't tell people mine was a v6 most wouldn't know I've been to tons of meets and shows at idle with the trifecta ghost cam. It sounded more aggressive than a stock 8.

Mrt 2.0 and cold air sounds like a possibility thanks for the input.

Check out SLP's PowerFlow-X exhaust. My friend was totally surprised when he learned it was only 6 cylinders.

Borla ATAK??? if you are worried about drone then a touring exhaust might be more your style or if you have some extra money you could get that weird thing i think is called an h pipe or something like that that eliminates drone...

This...start with a CAI Inc Intake combined with the MRT 2...if she isn't happy then, add long tube headers.

Flowmaster and Magnflow are mostly like the standards one!! bit aggressive but no big difference!! I am still searching for very aggressive ones for my 2012 2LT but I can't find one with no drone at high speed!! I have been in one (2012 1LT) with Borla and at high speed noise is all over the place and of course you can imagine the drone!! Any help for my situation?

In Riyadh where I live now, it is always dusty, and sometimes it is super dusty like you can't see 2 meters ahead of you!! Would that be an issue if I install a CAI Inc Intake?

I made a bunch of playlists with examples of several different V6 exhausts here. Personally my favorite is the MRT 1.0. Just pick an exhaust and hit play.

No, why would it? If anything you will benefit more from it because of the added filter media and filtration. Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks and take care!

I would simply start with the MRT2 axle back if all she wants is a more muscular sound.

MRT V2 will give a much deeper and aggressive sound. It won't sound like an 8 but I have gotten nothing but compliments on the sound since I installed mine

Wanted to make sure you got it.
This is what I did to mine, and I LOVE it. I don't think you can go wrong with this set up.
