They sound ricey IMO..it's hard to get a real good sounding muffler on a V6. I'm very happy with my takeoff's however.

its not a horrid sound, its an ok sound until 3k rpms then it gets ricy sounding but not horrid.... just about any aftermarket mufflers will sound the same on the v6.... at least all the ones i have heard and spintech seem to sound worse than flowmasters also. i would go with an oem gt take off exhaust and then you can change the mufflers out if you choose later on, this way you can give it a shot first and see if you like it.

The reason I like my takeoff's so much is because I don't get a drone while at highway speed. And it really isn't loud...just sounds good when I get on it, esp around 2500-3000

perhaps i will just get a take-off and have the shop weld it on up and fab some hangars.

or i could just go mufferless. would that sound horrid with just cats and straight pipes?

or how much should it reasonably cost to have a GT welded up in place of the y-pipe? cuz i got quoted like $300 somewhere.

yea, Brad's mach 1 takeoffs sound really good, being not too loud and no rice.... I am soon to have a local muffler shop put on some "mellowtones" which are supposed to be like flowmaster but sounding much better for a v6, and a little quieter

Takeoffs are the way to go. then if you want something else muffler wise, you can just swap them out. I've got takeoffs, and I'm going to leave them with the factory GT mufflers. I don't htink there's much if any HP to be gained by swapping them out, and I like the tone. They're quiet at idle, but they sound really aggressive at WOT, and not ricey like some of the aftermarket stuff does. And they ARE all stainless. I'd have to say it's the smart way to go.

I paid 127 for the takeoffs shipped to my door, and 100$ for the shop to weld/fit them up. A custom fabbed H pipe was included in that 100$.

i'm definately lookin more for sound quality and benefit to future upgrades than immediate power gain. cuz right now my sound just seems way to mellow. my friend's POS saturn sounded more aggresive than my stang today at the stop light at WOT.

Ditto man, I have dumps with 40 series and just kept my cats on, actually dosent sound to bad, I think it sounds pretty aggressive when I step on it and I hit about 3500-4000 rpms. If I get my camera fixed ill record the sound of my exhaust for you. :cool:
