Everyone says my flowmasters make my car sound like a sixties big block. I have headers on it to though.

Sorry man. I just realized you have a V6. Was looking at the "unread posts" on my phone. Didn't notice it was the V6 section.

Okay cool, what is the difference in x-pipes and y-pipes?

Look at LLT exhaust sticky, last thread in Flowmaster section, mid mount a Super 40 in place of the resonators, best V6 sound
I'm doing my LFX next Saturday

It is pretty hard to get a deep rumble out of the V6. I have the MRT V2.0 and I love the sound it is deeper but if you are trying to get the V8 rumble it just won't happen. I love the sound of my V2's. Here is a clip and it doesn't do it justice, sounds 10 times better in person. 3 parts spliced together, in the garage out of the wind at idle and a few revs, middle part is inside car getting up to speed just at the end of this part is cruising at 60, and the last part is about a 2/3 throttle take off with window down. There was about a 25 MPH wind from the passenger side on last part.

Cross-overs, whether they are an h-pipe or an x-pipe, are usually present to balance the flow out of the pipes. They won't really change the sound unless they have some sort of muffler type material inside them, like the resonated x-pipe that is so popular on the V-6's.

My understanding of a y-pipe would be to make a single exhaust out of a V-configured engine, or to dual out a system from one pipe to two.

I have an LLT, but I get lots of compliments from people on my exhaust. I have the V8 version Borla Atak. Nice idle, and loud when you're on it.

+1 ! I have Flowmaster axle back American Thunder and I love them! Gets the elusive gurgle sounds reminicant of 60's muscle cars. I also have a CAI, which adds to the overall tone. Each of them weigh 17.8 lbs including the provided tips, which is much better than the 25 lb. stock garbage cans.

They were easy to put on too, don't have to have a lift or be a mechanic, just a saw (I recommend a reciprocating saw with metal cutting blade).

I based my purchase on what I heard in many Youtube videos, some of which were Challengers.

Cost was about $525, can't remember off-hand, and they were bought off ebay and shipped to me, my install. I don't evan own a floor jack or stands, just used wooden ramps and backed up on them which lift it up about 8".

I don't mind people being proud of their system, but I am kinda sick of hearing "MRT" constantly. I listened intensively to examples of them and also the expensive brands like Borla, my choice was not based around how much I was willing to pay but rather which one sounded the best to me.

I read about those that went cat back and deleted cats and or the res, got 3" pipe, maybe a Mag. res. X pipe, and I feel the same way about mine as they do their very expensive system.

I actually have a brand new Mag. res. x-pipe in the box sitting here, but I figure that I like what I hear now than why change it? (as an addition to what
I have now, not a replacement with straight pipes)...and oh yeah, you SHOULD try driving it around with straight pipes so you can hear how HORRIBLE
it sounds, and enjoy the loss of low-end torque due to going way off the specs of needed back pressure.

I think maybe it's the big boxey shaped mufflers which it give it that good deep sound. Here is a pic of them:

No, but if you do a search on youtube there are allready tons of them, many with C5G v6's. The secret though, is when you watch them, not to listen to the words coming out of their mouths, or the quality of the production (Borla)..just listen to the sound and how you like or don't like it. The Jay Leno C5G supercharged V6 has this on it if my memory serves correct, that or his Challenger, either way it's still a V6 with the F.M.A.Ts, though his has the full Cat-back with larger pipe diameter. Keep in mind with supercharging, you'd need the larger pipes, stock v6 doesn't.

About the only thing I think I want on mine is maybe better tips, something in dark gray or carbon fiber color to augment the wheels.

No time to refer one which best represents the sound but here's the one showing how easy it is to install, note the test at the end, nice knowing it was engineered for this car.


There are a few vids that don't seem to sound anything at all what I have but they say they are, maybe they did it during a cold start, there is no doubt that it sounds better after warmed up. That said, this video is a great example of it's sound at about 2:20, this is worth watching as you might be interested in the others. They install a Magnaflow "true x-pipe" and delete resonators. Don't get that part confused with the very popular Magnaflow Resonated x-pipe, they are two different parts. You know how I know? Because I bought both before I found this out and sold the "true x-pipe".



But maybe if you are getting rid of the resonators, you need the True X-pipe, but the resonated does the same job of crossing over the flow from pipe to pipe. The best choice may depend on all of the other components you chose to go with. There are some posts here which say that the True x-pipe actually ads more rasp sound on a v-6 so be careful what you go with.
