Cheapest Way to make exhaust louder on a V6 camaro

Just as the title says. Could i just change out the mufflers, or does the whole exhaust system need to be changed?

Cutting off the mufflers is generally seen as a bad kind of loud. If you want them loud and still sounding pretty good i would go with the MRT v1 since they are a bit louder then the v2

This is the cheapest way. Cheap isn't always good.

I would save money, do some research, and buy a good catback

Cheap is usually not good, and good is usually not cheap....dynomax VT or MRT V2 are both good with the Dynomax being cheaper.
I have the MRT V2 because the Dynomax won't fit a convertible.
Whatever you get be sure it is designed to miss the extra underbody bracing the convertible has.

Cutting them off makes it loud and extremely ricey. Get a good sounding cat back.

I would suggest if you go MRT V1 might want to look in to J-pipes to go along with it. IMO

Brand new saws all. Good excuse to buy one. Then replace the stock mufflers with a set of MRT 2.0's and enjoy the new sound. Also saves you 32 lbs in weight.

That is what I did. Had the nufflers at home before I took delivery of my Camaro. This was 3 years ago. I would do it again, in a heartbeat.

I have straight pipes (there is no muffler, just a pipe) and in my opinion it sounds amazing and there is not any drone. It's also the cheapest option.

I have cherry bomb mufflers with a megnaflow resonated x pipe, it pretty cheap if for a muffler set up. It'll run about 400, just depends on where you get the parts. I've heard some muffler deletes that sound good and some that sound bad, it seems to be a roll of the dice.

Before you saw the mufflers off, ask yourself why you want to do it.
Please post those reasons here.
You don't spend $40,000 on a 45th anniversary convertible and then cheap out on the most important modification on the car.

Muffler delete, I love them on my SS, but I'm not to crazy about it on the V6. They are the cheapest way though.
