Bad news, GREAT news

ok so this morning my mom took my camaro in to get its oil changed, and to also get the brakes checked out since theyre starting to shutter, and i talked to her just a second ago and she said the oil and brakes are ok, but my exhaust system is shot to hell. idk who all has been keeping up with my posts, but i have the 3.8 with a dual exhaust (just discovered it to be a flowmaster), and the right side of it sat about 2 inches lower than the left, i think i have a pic of it, but anyway the mechanic said that it could leak carbon monoxide into the cabin and put me to sleep, and its about to fall off

so thats the bad news, the great news is that im getting a whole new exhaust!! she even told me to go on the internet and to find an exhaust system that i like, as she figured i would want one that sounds badass, which is exactly what im looking for im not to sure about price range, but she told me to go on flowmasters website cuz i guess they have audio clips of their exhaust systems and pick out the one i like (ive never been to their site, but ill look)

so im asking you guys, what should i get? i want something that sounds mean, and loud too. any suggestions and audio clips would be very appreciated.

oh and p.s. if theres an exhaust that would make my car sound like a TIE fighter out of star wars, let me know

GMMG is good stuff, I have Hooker on mine because it was cheap and it sounds good. Your car doesn't rev high enough to make a TIE fighter sound, it's not a Ferrari

Magnaflow makes a fairly nice Stainless Catback on the cheap...As in under $400. Shouldn't sound too whirly-giggity on a 3800 assuming you still have a cat on it...
I'd look for a takeoff stock Z/28 system if It were me, however...

That's the Magnaflow I was talking about. they have a decent tone at lower RPMs- trouble is, when a bent-six spins up they tend to take on an Evinrude from the Rescuers wail...

ok i just looked at GMMG's website, and they only have 1 exhuast system? i can only find one on their site, idk if there is more, but if this is the only exhaust system they have, would it fit a v6?

GMMG only has THE exhaust system

Not sure about fitment on a 3800. Might need some light fab work. Whoever installs your exhaust could handle it. Not sure how it would sound on the v6 though. You might want to go with something a little more tame, or else it'll sound like rice-a-roni.

the 3.4 and 3.8 sound nothing a like. magnaflow and borla are the 2 best choices for the 3.8, flowmaster is the worst.


heres mine with the Borla Pro XS.

I really like the deeper, more throaty menacing sound. I wish that GMMG had a v6 variant

I understand what your saying, but I'm in no way trying to hot rod this car. I'm more interested in maintaining it's longevity. And I do have to get a new exhaust, I might as well make it worth while. I was done doing things to this car up until now, might add a CAI, but I don't want to hot rod it

Before I say anything, I'm not bashing either, I'm just giving my opinion, sorry if it sounds mean or anything.
We've all got Camaro's, we bought em for a reason. Those reasons may be different, but regardless, it's car that is going to inevitably get modded, V8 or not.
If nothing else, an AM exhaust on ANY vehicle is far far healthier than the stupid restrictive factory set up.
Look at it this way. It may be an American Muscle, but it's V6 counterpart still puts out a good 200 ponies. For me that's enough to have some fun in. A bunch of the import have V6's and some of them 4 bangers, and they still get modded too. What's wrong with playing with your car? You don't have to have the big fancy V8 just to play.

Not true, you just have to spend an unreasonable amount of money to re-do your exhaust from the headers all the way back to the tips.

To the OP, Magnaflow is going to be your best bet in your situation.

My 3.8 sounded similar to this. You could get a real rumble out of it- under load, and below 2500RPMS it almost sounded like a V8. After 2500 though, it showed it's true colors lol.

I've got a TSP Rumbler catback on mine with no headers and it sounds great (granted it's a V8). It isn't obnoxiously loud, it's got a throaty rumble and it's affordable (got mine for a bit over $250 with no tips). After you get headers on it it'll sound menacing, but even without it it sounds perfect . Not knocking on the GMMG, but it seems like TSP gets you the best bang for your buck. My buddy's got it on his SS with longtubes and you can hear him coming from miles away, best exhaust sound I've heard.
