Turn Downs on a V6

I am pondering the idea of possibly going with turn down exhaust on my 98 v6, my rear right side exhaust is vibrating against my frame on the underside of the car, and am needing to have the weld broken going over the rear axle, and re-welded and thought... I wonder how turn downs might sound on the car, to save some money on paying a weld job to be done...



Has anybody heard a V6 with turn downs before with my similar setup, I have a 99 GT Exhaust/MAC H Pipe/2 Chamber Flowbasturds...

Thanks!

- Jeff

Charles can you tell me if you have any pictures from a under side shot like of the car up on a lift or sumthing?

curious how the mufflers are supported once they are trimmed back after the outlets on them, like do ya take a bracket and weld a piece onto the muffler and then onto the frame of the car for support?

so they are supported for movement and when you go over bumps and stuff?

Turn downs are basically, just after the muffler outlet there is a piping turned downward for the exiting exhaust and then you normally wont see any type of pipes under kneath the rear bumpers unless someone welds there existing exhaust tips to fill in that place, as most do sometimes with GT Bumpers or Bumpers designed for dual exhaust with rear standard GT+ exhaust.

DUDE....Do not go turndowns! It'll sound like a John Deere Tractor! Especially on a V6 in 1998....go true dual with a pair of flowmaster's...throat note with the HP...you get no back pressure from turndowns or side exhaust with no muffler's and actually end-up losing HP.....in 1998 3.8L's can't afford to lose any more HP! 8)

Note picture I posted above, true duals with H pipe, 2 Chamber Flowmasters, and the cut just shortly after the outlet with about 2inch pipe still going straight ( less dirt flying up on car then, instead of having a turn down cup link on there ). and feel like I have a tad more power to the car now, since removing that extra weight of the pipes. and sounds pretty good I must add.

Don't know Jeff, with your rear bumper cover made like it is, I would get tailpipes back on it asap personally. If nothing else for looks, that looked good.

I am gonna get the tailpipes cut into place, and welded so they still look as if they are there when looked upon.

so the look will still be there...

id rather have nonfunctional tailpipes that looked good than a bumper w/ dual design and no pipes. I have see a foxbody V6 with one dummy pipe. it was obvious one was real because the body kit had a hole for the pipes to go through, and one was very black and dirty from exhaust. the other was spic and span!
