Gt500 exhaust on a v6

I've heard good things about doing this and the couple of videos that I've heard sound pretty good . Has anyone done this ? Does anyone have a good video of the sound ?

I alsio went the route of a GT500 exhaust. The pipe that connects the muffler to the "over the axle" tube will need to be cut from your existing V6 pipes and welded to the GT500's that you buy (unless there's an aftermarket that sells them for a V6). Any muffler shop can do this; it cost me $80.00, and they even did the install after the welding. Shop around for them. I paid $150.00, used. Here's a pic of the weld I'm refering to, and a shot of them installed. A sound clip is really useless. You need to hear them first hand on a V6. They are great; not loud, great idle.

They look nice, I am curious to hear how they sound. I have been thinking of doing this set up for a long time.

The GT500 tips are larger in diameter and length then my stock V6's for sure. Maybe the pic does not show this clearly.
