Some people have done it and they like it. They hack the stock muffler out, put in a replacement pipe there, and they like it. Or they do a whole new cat-back and don't use a muffler. But at high RPM's, it sounds ricey, but so does any muffler on a v6 pretty much. I've not done it and havn't heard it in real life, just going by what folks say that actually did it.


If you just unbolt the piping after the last catylatic converter, it's LOUD, it's annoying, it robs power, and sucks the fuel alot more. I've done this, and it's not suggested at all. It sounds cool for a whole 5 minutes. lol.

One word. Gay. As said above you will lose low end power.
