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.
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.
