Meanest Sounding V6 Ever

1.Ok so it holds true, I have finally found the secret to having the deepest growling v6 possible. I had all five guys at the shop agree that the difference was night and day and that the car actually sounded much better than stock v8 Camaros.

2. Drone was reduced dramatically, not increased like I was expecting. Rasp is still the same before the change.

So without further due, the before and after specs;

Before:
DT Shorties
Magnaflow Resonated Xpipe
MRT 1.0
Resonators Deleted
Rear Cats Deleted
Stock Piping
Phase Cam

After:
DT Shorties
Magnaflow Resonated Xpipe
Resonators Deleted
Rear Cats Deleted
3" Piping from Resonated Xpipe to rear end.
Phase Cam

From the results that I've heard, this is by far the best sound I've ever heard from our v6 cars and when your light on the peddle, its not loud and obnoxious. The secret is the resonated xpipe and I'm now even more confident in saying that everyone should have one installed, end of story.

So any of you who were wondering what effect there would be going with 3" pipes out the xpipe, I can tell you that the results are impressive and you will agree with me when you do this.

I'm gonna go do a video clip of the idle. Sorry but I never had a chance to wash the car from the drive home and also there were people using weed eaters a couple houses away. I drove through a huge rainstorm and now the car looks dirty :( . Anyhow, enjoy!

And yes the car finally gurgles (the sound everyone is trying to get) and the chops come from the phase cam.

Any video to hear sound when you give it some gas or a driving video? Sounds awesome at idle.

video says it is unavailable. Did you remove it?

Looking forward to hearing it.

I have to say I'd be a bit timid to install 3" piping on the V6. Not because of the "backpressure" myth, but the fact that keeping exhaust velocity high is a key to not losing power in certain areas of the rpm range.

You have good flow until the 3" pipe....and maybe that's all that is needed? But I would think that after that, the velocity is decreased because of the larger pipe.

I wonder if using 2.5" pipe would affect the sound and drone compared to 3" pipe? It might be too early for you to tell (I'm sure your foot is in it to hear the new sound lol) but I'd love to know later on if you experience any lose in low end power.

Looking forward to hearing the videos.

EDIT: OK vid working now.

Your right....does sound very deep at idle. Good stuff.

The shorty headers definitely help in that too, so for owners without them, it may not be quite the same.

Do us a favor; when you make the reving videos, please place the camera a good 10 feet or so back from the car. Too close and it won't be a very accurate representation of the sound.

Video processing right now cant wait to hear been waiting awhile to find the right exhaust sound love the idle sound though

Man that sounds sick as hell sheesh definitely best 6 I've heard. I wonder how I can mimic this on a LFX cant get headers and I havent heard anything about any cam options.

I hope these videos help people make the correct decisions when venturing into the exhaust segment. I have tried several different combinations but nothing seems to get even close to how deep this exhaust really is now. 3" pipes make the difference.

I know you probably haven't driven the car enough to tell but have you experienced any power loss? I have heard a few say that you lose a little bit of power going with a 3" exhaust. The car sounds so good though!

Just asking because I'm still debating whether to go long tubes (which I already have lol) for power or shorties for sound.

After deleting mufflers I lost some power with 2.5 piping.


TO be honest mine sounds exactly the same as yours. I have muffler delete 2.5 inch piping and res. Delete.

Other than the ghost cam of course.

AT idle and low rpm. I am curious as to how yours sounds at high rpm as mine is very raspy and our peircingly loud.

The resonated x-pipe would take care of any rasp you have and would probably make it deeper as well.

Still feels like the power is the same. Its still too early to tell. I'm gonna go out for a cruise now and see how things are. Just remember that the resonated xpipe also provides backpressure and the xpipe itself helps with scavenging.

chicagobulls, at high rpm, the car is still smooth because of the resonated xpipe. A lot of my drone must have been narrowed to where the exit of the xpipe was. Before, the convertor shrunk to 2.25" which must have made it drone hard. Now that its all opened up, that might explain the huge reduction of drone.

Don't get me wrong, there is still drone but nowhere near what I had before.

3" pipe from the x pipe to the tips? so I am missing a little bit of piping for this since I have the loudmouth 1?

I JUST ordered the x pipe. And I am making an appointment now to do a res delete. the only thing I am missing from this is the 3" pipe from the x pipe to the loudmouth 1?
