Exhaust is cut off from y-pipe back.

I have a 96. Auto. 3.8. Still have the stock exhaust system except no muffler cherry bomb of sorts swap. While doing some over haul work I found the previous over had the whole exhaust welded into one large section. Poorly done as I broke it off at the end of the y pipe. First notice the cars power increased massively. I thought with less back pressure. As for just the y pipe it would run poorly. Exhaust wasn't clogged cats are still good. Why? And for a replacement. I read a lot about true dual exhaust systems? Any opinions or suggestions?

His year sounds really good with the prochamber midpipe. I think that an offroad h will make it sound more like a v6.

Right. I forget he has the single port, not the split port


But with that "Sounds like a V6" comment, well what else is it? It IS a V6. Embrace it, and show it off. It will never be a V8, but who cares? Make it your own. Make it faster than a V8. And it will always have the V6 rasp in the higher RPM's. Nothing will ever make that go away, unless you get a V8.

Im trying to save him from everybody saying his exhaust is a fart can, to do that you have to make it sound as close to a v8 as possible

There's no way around it. The V6 has that high rasp, and it always will.


The set up I was talking about will make it sound similar to a V8 on idle, and low RPM's, but we both know that once you rev it past 3K with Flowmaster's or MAC's it will sound raspy.


Only way to fix that? Cams. Get a cam and you will keep the same volume most likely. I'm getting cam work done on my vehicle in the summer. Can't wait.
