Exhausts for V6

Hello all, Got an Ls, 6 speed manual, and i need some exhaust help. There are so many different ones out there, and i dont know where to look to find the best sounding one, without breaking the bank completely. I want something thats not too loud, but not too quiet. Looking for sound, not performance. Something that has that American Muscle sound. I have a K&N typhoon intake too. Any comments are Much appreciated

Thanks

For what you want I would suggest a MRT v1 but they also make the MRT v2. The v1 is louder and in my opinion is the closest you'll get to a "V8" the v2 is slightly quieter but eliminates most drone. One other exhaust that is almost just like the v1 is the Dynomax VT but in my opinion I think I would have to give the upper hand to the MRT v1

Here is a link to my thread that has a lot of exhausts in it, it hasn't been update for awhile because I haven't had time I have been posting from my phone but I will update it soon

The MRT v2 is definitely the most popular V6 system we carry. It sounds very good especially with a good intake system.

Neither would be better for sound. If you just want sound go for an axle back. Not MUCH of a performance increase if any. Cat back will yield you some power.

honestly catbacks give you move performance and sound good but axle backs sound better. I would get Solo High Flow Cats and MRT v1 exhaust with a CAI or Roto-Fab Air Intake with a catch can and you will set

I am looking at exhaust as well and the one I like most is the corsa exhaust. a close second would be the MRT. Going with the corsa because I can get those new at my dealers cost. ( he needed pics of my camero for his advertisement. )

Is it hard to install axles? How much is it usually to install it?

They are pretty easy to install you just need a saw and a few wrenches. Cut wear the rear axle is (make measurements first just in case) and you slip on the new exhaust and use the clamps unless you weld it. If you are handy deffintly DIY instead of blowing $150.00 - $300.00 on someone doing it for you

Really I think welding is just a waste of time. All exhaust come with clamps and I would just use those as long as you do it tight enough (not hard to do). Unless you are a really good welder it's pointless

Flowmaster Super 44's are in my future.
I had them on my 2006 Impala and it sounded great.

I don't know whos car this is, but its has Super 44's.
In my opinion it sounds better then the MRT's.

Besides.....everyone has MRT's.




and the MRT v-2...(they are bad-ass though)

I am looking at the Borla cat back with x-pipe for my 2012 2LT RS. New to the Camaro Forum scene. From what I have read about the different subjects, and in-put I think this is great!

explain "drone"

As i understand it its the sound at cruizing speed.

if thats the case i want to hear my car.
if its all about others hearing it only at startup and take off, then its sorta pointless because the majority of the time driving would be the time you want the car to be heard the most?

no?

its that "fart" at the end of the rev i hate, and just takes me to "the fast and bi-curious"...
these arent rice burners.....
there Camaros
If that exhaust could eliminate that rice burner fart at the end of the rev i'd be all for it

Its hard to get a decent "muscle car" sound from a V-6,Maybe some SS takeoffs would give it a mellow deeper sound without sounding ricey?

Drone?
Yes the drone happens at cruising speeds. I have the MRT v1.0, which does have a drone at lower rpm speeds when driving. It's something you only hear in the cabin, just grab a higher gear to minimize the drone. I chose the v1.0 over the 2.0 because I wanted the louder and more aggressive sound at idle and startup. Trade off between the two.

Thats a V8 in the first vid. Your V6 will not sound like that. I personally went with the Corsa cat back. 0% rasp, and it makes your 3.6L sound like an Italian super car. Quiet at idle, awesome under WOT.
