don't know about the back pressure, but i drove mine open headers basically, to get my h-pipe modified to fit on right....sounded loud and tinney,didn't notice any difference in the car aside from the noise. but maybe it would sound a little different running through the tail pipes??

Why would you -want- straight pipes? They sound absolutely gay.

Keep your cats and get some warlocks. Be like me. You won't regret it.

my friend had straight pipes well no mufflers but kept his cats and it souned pretty nasty..... all you can do to make a v6 sound better is get a set of mellow low tone mufflers and live with it taking the cats off or running no mufflers sounds VERY bad.

Warlocks. They are the best sounding muffler for our cars. Period. Hands down. Any other muffler need not apply. They will make your eyes, ears, and throat water. Gaston ran .2 faster just by uncapping them. They own.

But whatever, go with your POS bassani or flowmasters that provide nothing but nostalgic value.

Ok here are 3 videos with soundclips of my car on a dyno. The sound was off a digital camera but not bad quality considering the soource.

I have a O/R H pipe, Dynomax ultraflows and 2 1/4 pipes back to 3.0 tips. I do also have stager 3 intakes, RPM HP heads and a hot rpm cam.

I will say my car is a little louder than I would like but it is tollerable.

Without mufflers or cats it would be unbearable!!!!

You sure could! Just cut the old crappy mufflers out and weld in the new awesome Warlock ones. I have 2.5" Dynomax tails, which is basically the same thing as whatever is on GTs. Summit sells Warlocks for $65 a piece: http://store.summitracing.com/partde...rt=BIG%2D50551

Here is a picture of them installed on my car:

I already posted them once. But I was forced to take them down because my bandwidth utilization shot up to like... 2 TB/hr... because everyone in the world wanted to listen to them.

I have yet to here any V6 that sounds as good as mine except ones with Flowpath mufflers or a few with major mods and flow through mufflers. I dont say this to anger anyone and I have engine mods that help my sound along.

What I need is a good soundclip at Idle When I am at my office where I work ( Building made of solid concrete) my car can be heard or better felt vibrating in a low rumble. Not some High revving obnoxious sound but more like a Harley at Idle in a slow lope.

Now if you think open exhaust on the street sound cool well I cant help you there cause that is about as obnoxious as it comes and not to mention sounds like pure crap!!!!

Also: Those are all from inside my car. I need some outside sound clips. It sounds way better outside because there isn't any rattling/humming interior.
