magnaflows tend to make v6s sounds really Supraish, so im not sure what sound your going for. Try the magnaflow site and listen to v6s, try the CTS and a mustang if you want. And even try the G35. Just play around on the site and see if you like the sounds that are comming from the v6s. Obviously they are going to be different but it gives you an idea

Just from comparing catback vs. axleback, it looks to be 2-3. But don't quote me on that.

your v6 would be the only one in the world if it sounded like a v8. I've never heard one sound like a v8. Somebody even posted a camaro recently running straight pipes and it did not sound good. 100% not like a v8.

Unfortunately, if you do not know someone with the exact same set-up there is no way to find out EXACTLY how it sounds. You need to let him do it and if you do not like it, when you hear something better, you replace it. It is the Bad part about being an early owner of any model car.....you get to experiment and set the standard.

Yeah, we've heard your car with straight pipes. I'm not so sure it sounds like a V8. Although it may sound different in person then from the video.

Which mufflers did you go with? The XR-1s I pointed you to? Borla also makes the S-type, Turbo, Turbo XL, and Boomer series mufflers (and they even make two types of the XR-1, sportsman and raceline, though there seems to be negligible flow difference, just loudness).

And seconded on the vids ASAP.

In all honesty, most of what you pay for a name brand is quality product. A lesser product will still get you results, but they might not be as good. Per horsepower, it will cost substantially less. At the same time, it will not be backed by R&D or a warranty from a reputable company.

The odds are that you will be very happy with your cheaper exhaust. There is always a fluke chance that something will go wrong.

• Cheap
• Fast
• Reliable
• Pick 2

Here, you've chosen cheap and fast. Reliability is up in the air, but the exhaust won't cause your car to blow up, so you're fine.

I also want to encourage everyone to stop worrying about the sound of the exhaust. Performance is what counts. It doesn't matter if it sounds like singing chipmunks or a space shuttle. Power is a measurement of work over time. A roaring exhaust has nothing to do with it. If you want cheap power, a custom exhaust is a great option. If you want guaranteed reliability, expect to pay for a name brand to back your product.

I'm interested as well. I fully support getting flowmaster delta 40's if you haven't made a choice yet. I don't know the difference in how an H pipe will sound Vs. an X pipe unfortunately.
