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.

I have heard this from a few V6 customers, great combination!

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.

Any sound clips of this?

I know its a different engine, but on my old 98 RS 3.8l, I had it soundling pretty close to a V8 at idle and up to 2-3k rpm.

I had an intake, headers, and a good conservative muffler. The muffler is the key!

Get the engine flowing with an intake and headers, then use a conservative muffler. Dont go for some high flow, super loud muffler.

Mrt 2 and the cai seems to be most popular. I really like the idea for giving her my ss and getting a zl1. Wonder how that will go over. Thanks for all the imput.

just so you know, the RS is an appearance package. it does not mean it's a V6. you can have an SS/RS.
