I personally like the sound of this video. He kept the system stock and added a Flowmaster 80 Series muffler.

I do like the sound of that. would it be better to do true duals or would tht take to much power away. i am looking for a lil more performance out of this system. as far as resonator should i keep it stock or use lk a glasspack?

I've personally been a borla fan. I have vibrant on my GXP but I have run borla products in the past.

I suggest Borla. Great Product with great customer support. If you are looking to do a 3rd/4th gen style camaro muffler like the FM80 you should also look at the hooker aerochamber line of mufflers. I ahd very good luck with them and a nice sound when I had it on my wifes Firbird with a 3.4 V6.

Hope this helps.

Get on youtube and listen to exhausts, thats about the only way to get close to finding something you like.

I think it would be better to use a dual outlet muffler such as the one in the video I have posted for you. True duals would be costly and I don't think you would see that much of a performance upgrade. Most G6 owners use the dual outlet muffler. And as far as the resonator goes, I would leave it alone. Just remember that if you use the wrong setup your car is going to be ungodly loud and possibly be a noise ordinance violation. You don't want a ticket for noise pollution, do you? The best options and sound I have seen/heard would be the video I posted or the GT-R system. I know its a tad pricey but its $599 well spent.

No problem. I used to work for AAP back in the day. lol. But yeah the dual outlet is the way to go. You obviously don't want to spend too much money so buying only one muffler is the first way to save money. I've never heard a Borla muffler on G6. You are right about the Magnaflow and Flowmaster on youtube. It's all people do. The GT-R is a magnaflow muffler. I like how the GT-R also sounds like an expensive sports car. You could always just keep your eyes open on this site. Maybe someone will sell their GT-R system one day. But for now, I would continue to do your custom system. Just make sure everything syncs together and you get proper back pressure.

yeah im just going to do the single muffler dual outlet. i found only two borlas tht have it the performance turbo XL, and the pro XS. i have no idea if those r for ricers or not. "if anyone knows anything about those please let me know". but other than that yeah i think im guna talk to the shop owner today and see what he says. ill keep my eye out for a gt-r system but until then im just guna have to go custom.

Give Borla a ring if thats the route you want to go. They make a single inlet dual outlet camaro style muffer. Also the Hooker Aerochamber muffler I suggested is a single inlet and dual outlet muffler like the Flowmaster(FM) 80series in the video. ITs a great sounding muffler.

Great muffler check it out man. Also it is cheaper on Jegs or summit racing. cut and paste the part number into their search and it should be about $80 for aluminized and more for polished SS.
