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.

I never heard a mean sounding V6. I think she's out of luck.

Just because you haven't doesn't mean there isn't. Ill get a sound clip I got rid of the ghost cam so I can't show off the amazing lope that it had, but the superchager makes up for it

I am told once a week that my V6 sounds GREAT.

Here is a clip of me at the track.

Mods are listed in the signature.

This pass I ran 13.664 @ 100.88

I guess you didn't state what year she is driving. First off MRT V2.0 would be my choice also as I love mine. Now, you didn't mention what year, 2010-2011 you could add headers but I can't tell you what the added sound would be. Okay with that said, 2012 LFX engine you can't add headers since they are integrated into the head but you can swap out the catalytic converters for Solo's HFC's. For me it was a hard decision because of cost but I did add them and still have seconds thoughts on the cost of them. But, they do add a slightly deeper tone at idle and a more aggressive sound when you are hard on the throttle. I would start with the V2.0's first and if money is no object and she wants a more aggressive sound then headers or HFC's. JMO.
