BOSS 302 midpipe on V6

SO Ive seen a couple different threads on other forums. Didnt look like anyone acctually went through with the setup, but how would it sound to add side exit (baffled of course) exhaust similar to the BOSS 302 on the V6? We all know the H pipe adds a nice deep tone to it and the BOSS's setup has a circular baffle inside each of the side exit p[ipes so its not a true OPEN exhaust pipe. Its just an idea ive been mulling about in my head.

Interesting idea. I'm sure you could find an oem Boss midpipe for a decent price.

Ya, im sure. I was just thinking up ideas for different exhaust tone. Seems everyone has the same setups and sounds. Might be cool to hear it out, then again it could sound like complete crap lol

Probably won't help much. A lot of welding and fabrication to do. And remember you can't weld up cast iron headers without alot of work

Plus you'll have to go to the boss over axle pipes and a set of GT mufflers. For what? A different sound?

You're best bet is to get cutouts and a shorty header with a borla muffler

I think you miss read. I was just talking the BOSS midpipe. Myself and a couple others have already done the GT mid pipe. It fits just fine. Yeah you gotta cut the hybrid mid pipe out of the V6, but it fits. In fact as you place the GT mid piping over the stock V6 down pipes its a bit snug, but you have to cut the hybrid pipe just after the resonators. The V6 down pipes didnt need any modding it slips right over them.

Anyway im getting off topic, you're right though. Its just for the purpose of sound. Just a matter of whos is willing to try it out and see how it comes out.

What part are you taking about? Manifolds back or the actual center piece. Click image for larger version

That whole thing. Just cut the part the clamps to the headers(below the red line) and you can weld it on to the stock V6 exhaust just fine...but those side exits...thats the hard part to find. might need to add piping to direct it toward the back or sides.

Another thing to consider is that doing this ^^ Will likely push them a littler further aft than they are on the GT, and the side pipes exit damn near in front of the rear wheels, which means that section of pipe would need to be reshaped as well. It could obviously all be done, but a thorough cost/benefit analysis would be worth doing...

You may almost just have better luck adding your own side pipes and restrictors to the stock V6 mid pipe.

Oh definitely. As it is its hard to find the mid section with the side exits. So most likely a custom side exit piping would need to be made.
