You'd probably have to cam it, it's hard to get the V6's to sound nice with sounding a little ricey.

Wouldn't camming it only affect the idle noise?

It changes the sound all throughout the rev's.
The right cam and exhaust gives it a real nasty/intimidating idle.

The cam is what makes the biggest change, but LT headers by them self do make a difference.

You should get the rear ones removed.

If you have cats it not an off road pipe, be careful on removing cats. Some states you will not pass inspection with out them. Deleting any set cats from a newer car like this will cause a check engine light.

It depends, the v6 usually tends to be a little raspy in general no matter what. But if your doing an h pipe with no cats and a set of flows you should be alright it will be loud too.

Yea your right it does... I might look into high flowcats just for emission purposes, u think they may be worth doing

As far as i can tell h-pipe is better on a v6. Basically removing the rear cats will make everything louder. If you like your idle noise it will get a bit louder

Yea my goal is not to have it sound like a v8, I just like a deeper sounding car I'm not really into the raspier sounds not really my cup of tea. Don't get me wrong they sound good but I like the deep tone. even if I had a v8 I would do an h pipe instead of a x still becuz I like the deep tone that it makes.

Idk I have heard good things about these high flow cats, but is it really worth it on a street driven car? I can see if your really trying to get out as much power as possible from your car then yes but I do love the sound of a good exhaust. It's a tough choice there.

The new 3.7 engine sounds really bad compared to this engine and the 4.0 in the 2005-2009.

I have heard a few 3.7s with after market exhaust and they sound okay down low but after that not so much. Might have been a bad set up tho

mid pipes arn't even needed with these engines, you could just go divorced duals and it would sound like an H pipe.
