    Would this be too loud? What is closest exhaust and setup be it xpipe etc to come close to straightpipe sound while still being legal because an actual muffler is on.


    would this be flowmaster outlaw and xpipe?

    what comes close to a straightpipe sound while still having a muffler for legality is what im trying to ask here.

    Thanks!

    I had a 2016 3.7 with Flowmaster outlaw axle backs and a x pipe. It was loud and raspy. I later added bbk shorty headers and it was a little deeper but still raspy and loud. If you want the closest thing to straight pipe then the Flowmaster ab and x pipe will do it. If that ends up being to loud you can always put the stock resonator back on it will still be loud but not crazy loud, or you can try to find a resonated x pipe.

    Make it sound good man. It is possible with a cat back. Nobody likes a obnoxious straight piped sounding V6.

    No offense..

    If you delete the cats run Dynomax Turbo Mufflers to make the car not sound like a raspy mess and be sure you run a good tune. Straight pipe V6 anything just sound bad by nature though it is preventable if well executed.
