Here it go’s. I don’t like the sound of any off the shelf catback, or a loud V6 in general for that matter. However, pushing for more power I know the skinny factory set up wasn’t doing me any favors. So, I set out to put together the most free flowing exhaust possible while trying my best to keep the volume down and tone deep and low. I’m far from an exhaust theory expert but have been researching this for a couple years. The general consensus among those who know far more than me is that in turbo applications the best exhaust post turbo is none. From there I knew 3” would be perfectly acceptable so I went for it. On to X pipes. I used the 3” MagnaFlow Tru-X crossover X pipe. I know there is much contention about their viability on an even firing V6, and even more so on a turbo where you lose the individual exhaust pulses. But, I believe there still may be some scavenging from side to side to take advantage of. Even if I’m wrong, I don’t see how it could hurt and if nothing else I’ll take the fact that they do help mellow the overall tone. Moving to resonators. Everything I’ve heard about their deletion is once gone, you get drone. I didn’t want either but needed something else there because for no other reason it would be way too loud with just the X and mufflers. So I took a page from my ‘60’s FE experience and put dual 4” body 22” long Thrush glasspacks on in place of a resonator. And finally, exiting through 3” MagnaFlow (cause deep and mellow) mufflers and factory style 4.25” tips. The set up. (Concise) 2.5” PPE catted downpipes 2.5 flange to 3” pipe 3” MagnaFlow Tru-X Dual 3” Thrush glasspacks 3” MagnaFlow mufflers Now for the result. For the sound I was hoping to achieve, couldn’t be happier. Honestly, not a ton louder than stock in decibels but far deeper and certainly more aggressive with a minimal amount of V6 rice. Performance, according to the butt dyno, most definitely noticeable. Feels strong. Where I failed... miserably, drone! About 1,600 rpm to around 2,100 it’s pretty bad. So, a Helmholtz resonator is most likely in my future. Overall I’m happy with the outcome and the sound is actually pretty decent... acceptable...for a V6. Far from obnoxious but still lets you know it’s ready for battle. Forgive the muck, it rained on the way home from picking it up. Video link with cold start and drive by’s.
