New exhast for V6

Guys, I want to put a new exhaust in my V6 IOM and was wondering what you all would recommend. I know I can't get that burly V8 sound, but Im sure there is something out there that will give even a V6 a more "beefy: sound to it. I have listened to a lot of different set ups on YouTube, but can't quite decide.

just put on the "cheap" pacesetter tfx cat back. WOW. Amazing quality and sound for under 400 bucks. I was blown away. Install was like 45 mins. No welding no mods. Just bolted up. Heres a video (not mine)

Keep it simple with a flowmaster or magnaflow axleback along with mag. resonated X-pipe. I guaranty you will like it.

Pacesetter usually has some nice parts sound quality wise remembering from the 4th gens. I personally would want to hear a few more sound clips of that pacesetter kit before passing judgement knowing how much audio can tamper the true sound and the video did make it sound extra raspy like a ricer, but at the same time it really sounded good at idle.

Magnaflow always makes great parts so I would probably recommend them as well as one you may want to really look into.

I don't know a whole lot about LLT exhaust system upgrade options but I've seen several V6 Camaro's that sound ridiculously nice for being a V6.

In my opinion modding the exhaust on the v6 doesn't make much sense anyway, I don't think you'll ever get a "beefy" sound from a v6 and car people can tell right away from the sound what engine you have. I like to keep mine quiet, that way people aren't sure if it's a v6 or v8,

if you really want to do it keep this in mind,, if you buy a cheap set-up with the aluminumized finish it will only last 3-5 years if you drive in winter weather.. plus I don't think clamps are ever adequate for an exhaust system, they always rust and come loose, you'll want to have the system welded.. Pace setter does make nice low cost stuff..

for these 2 reasons I would recommend getting a Stainless system that will last for the life of the car and have resale value if you decide to sale it later. Also the polished stainless mufflers look like $1million hanging from the under the car..

also it's not fair to judge by that video above because it was recorded in a garage, it will sound completely different outside.

I'm pretty happy with my car with just the CAI intake, it has enough sound by itself.

2012 1LS Silver Ice - Mods - SS Strut Brace, RX Catch Can, BBK CAI, TRS Bi-Xenon HID's, Blackout Grill, RX65 Radar Detector, 700watt 4 Channel Amp with Kicker Speakers, 4Pack Gauges Added, 30% tint. Baer Drilled Rotors & pads, 20" American Racing. Awesome car.

I agree with cyber punk, I would rather it be quiet. I don't think they sound good with aftermarket exhaust, if it was a v8 then we would have a different story. Good luck with your choice.

100th post woohoo!!!
