Lampoon,
Did you like the sound of the magnaflow?
Mine is a 07 with the 3.6 VVT. I am looking for low tone.
not that "ricer" noise.

yes.....I put a magnaflow flow through in place of the resonator then the single in dual out 2.5" in back. I thought it sounded awesome.
I was never really happy with the pipe work or welding and the tips I got wernt very good. So when I had a chance for a GT-R system I jumped on it. Its a touch louder as it doesnt have the flow through
muffler but the tips are extremely nice.
I recommend the 4" flow through to replace the resontator then the single in dual out in back.
Also get the best tips you can. 4" fits the valance perfect and looks awesome.

So if you cant afford the GT-R or just wanna do it yourself go that route. 2.5" all the way.

Thats my recommendation.

What was the cost difference...?

I see that the GT-R is about $700...what was the cost on the Magnaflow w\ flow through?

Knock $100 off that if you go register on the other G6 forum and contact Sam (the owner) over there.

but yeah I think when all was done I paid about $85 per muffler, and $45 on the tips and
$100 labor and pipes. So I think I saved about $150 or so.

Keep in mind I now have the GT-R and its construction and product was so superior to my custom job that it wasnt funny.

I quite don't have the cash on hand to buy the GT-R exhaust. Instead I would rather just have a magnaflow or flowmaster muffler installed with single in and dual out. Could possibly add a glasspack if necessary.

I want the tone to be warm and at idle it should be barely noticeable, but once on the road and towards WOT it should keep that warm tone with louder intensity. I've never been a fan of the cracking and popping, or even the really aggressive sound. I just want it to be a little louder and aggressive. The stock exhaust is definitely quiet as a mouse...

I went to my local shop for a quote on how much this would cost and they stated that it would be better to get an aftermarket exhaust system (like the GT-R) due the the lack of space under the car. They said they didn't have the pipes for it, and creating the custom pipes would cost more than I bargained for. Then I went to another shop, where they gave me a $240 quote but didn't look under the car, assuming that it was an easy job.

Time to revive this thread.

So I got a quote from Josh at Classic Performance and he said that it would be 679.99 + 112.46 for shipping. I am interested in more of the aspect of adding exhaust more so for performance rather than sound. Does anyone know how much this system would add to performance?
I also went to http://http://www.louscustomexhaust.com/ and they told me that it might be in the ballpark of 1,000 for true exhaust system. I am not sure which route to go with this. Any recommendations?

Go with the GT-R. I have it, love it, and have never heard a bad review of it.
There are no HP/TQ numbers for it, however I can tell you for sure that there is a noticeable increase in low end and mid range torque.

What engine/year do you have, and what is a "true exhaust system"?
If they are talking about true dual exhaust, then that would involve a set of headers as well, in which case something sounds fishy because there is no way you'd be able to get a high quality set of headers and exhaust for 1k.

[QUOTE=BORN2SKI;72219]What engine/year do you have?QUOTE]

I have a 2009 G6 GXP 3.6L.
I talked to the guy out of work and he misunderstood the fact that I want dual, he initially thought I had single output. So he said it would cost a lot more for it than 1000. You think I should go with GT-R then?
