300 6 aggressive exhaust

i have a 1985 f-150 with the 300 inline 6.

i currently have a 2 inch pipe back to a cherry bomb glass pack under the front of the box with no pipe past the glass pack. i dont mind the sound its alright but i want something that sounds better

i know that you cant make a 6 banger sound like a v8 but i was wondering if there is any exhaust system that will give it a deep throaty sound.

any advice is greatly appreciated.

It's pretty hard to make a six sound like a v8. It's very easy to make a six sound like a honda civic. Ask some guys on here if they have the fuel injection exhaust manifolds or the dual outlet header with a true dual exhaust. If I had a six, that's what I would try to do if I could somehow get it to pass inspection(cat convertor(s)).

i know its very hard to make a inline 6 sound like an v8. i used to have the exhaust pipe hanging fairly low and it sound alright. but i got it hung up once and it pulled the glass pack off. so when i fixed it i lifted it right up close to the box hoping it would echo off the box and make it louder. well i was wrong. at idle and low throttle it sounds the same. at higher rpm though it sounds like a civic with a coffee can muffler so this system needs to go.

i would run dual pipes but i cant afford it right now. i was just wondering if there are any mufflers that can give me a decent sound.

if i had the money this is the system i would be using. Offenhauser 6019-DPK Offenhauser Dual Port 6-Cylinder Manifold

I don't know about the mufflers, but I can't stand to have the exhaust come out between the body and the roadway. It gives you this loud drone in the cab that I can't stand. I always try to bring the pipe out the side or out the back just a little bit beyond the body to prevent that noise in the cab.

Greyf100 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
LEave the cat, straight pipe out the back bumper...Its surprisingly quite in the cab, and doesnt get loud till you let it wind up.
