    I dunno what I'm going to do. I might go to a guy in town sometime and tell him to give me a price on something deep but not to noisy. Just whatever brand...

    Re: Best exhaust on V6.

    i have jba headers and a flowmaster 40 duel outlet. it sounds really commanding and deep on idle-3000 rpm, then it gets louder and a little higher sounding. It makes a good bit noise though. I had a dynomax on it, but it was too quit for me. It sounded nice tho.

    I had an SI/DO Flowmaster 40 on my 4.3 S10 and it sounded great.

    Re: Best exhaust on V6.

    It's probably going to be magnaflow or flowmaster for sure..

    Yeah people are always saying there is no way i have a v6. That flowmaster is about the best i know of. Like i said untill you give it some rpm it will be great.

    I enjoyed my Dynomax cat-back. Great tone, none of the nasty raspy crap the 4.3 is notorious for. I think it sounded better than the flowmaster dad had on his Astro.

    I went and talked to a guy in town today and he said that he could do it tommorow. He said that the cherry bomb had a good deep sound and for the dual exhaust it would be about $240.

    Re: Best exhaust on V6.

    IMO a true dual exhaust with glass packs is gonna sound terrible. It will just be noise until about 2500 RPM where it turns ricey. Go with the biggest Magnaflow you can find, and it might sound alright. With a 4.3, the best exhaust is the stock one, as far as i'm concerned and if I ever put on a new exhaust it's gonna be a full single exhaust with the magnaflow muffler and the factory style exit.

    Re: Best exhaust on V6.



    my setup sounds ok for a v6, but its got horrible drone in the cab from ending so short (about 12" past cab) whatever you do, dont get a flowmaster 40series... it sounds ok idle but otherwise sounds crappy on the 4.3's (what i had a few years back). Spintech mufflers sound good on the 4.3ls, as do magnaflow

    and no the cop isnt real, i was messing around with windows movie maker when i edited

    except ever since i totaled the front end, i got a black hood and a crappy looking dented bumper since all the parts to fix was out of pocket and I really cant justify spending $250+ on a new bumper just for my daily driver (the crap on the door is a reflection off my 51 buick



    and a reflection

    yes 20's with 275/45 almost bald Goodyear GT II's in the back and newer general grabber uhp's in the front (excelent tire)
    really not much noticable difference between the factory steel rims and tires. they weigh almost the same. A little slower at take off but i didnt do it for performance
