My wife would like a little rumble on her red G8.

Hey guys,
I really don't want to spend a ton of $$ on a cat back system on my wife's car, Just wondering if anyone has removed the rear mufflers and replaced them with something like Hooker aerochambers or flowmaster super 44's on their V6's. I was thinking of just cutting them off and welding in a set. What do you guys think? Should I remove anything else? I have to leave the cats in place for emission's here in Canada.
I did this on her 06 Pontiac G/P with the 3800 series 3 engine ( flowmaster 44's) and it sounded pretty decent. Not sure how this would sound on the G8 V6.

Any advice would be appreciated !!
Cheers
Eric

Thanks G8 Chick !!! I really don't want an x-pipe put in I have heard they sound kinda rapsy in the V6's. I was thinking of just cutting the rear mufflers out with a sawzall then welding up the flowmasters or Hooker aerochambers. I had good luck with them in our 06 GP but the G8'S are a different set-up. Just not sure if it would make much of a difference in sound with leaving the rest of the stock set -up.

Just get 4, 3/8ths lock washers and put them between the oval muffler connect flanges, you will be shocked how perfect it will sound

Thanks for your input guys. I haven't made any decisions as of yet, I do believe I would loose some low-end torque just cutting the rear mufflers off and adding super 44's or aerochambers. I may throw the solo axel backs on it this spring as many of the V6 guys have mentioned they sound decent anuff.
Cheers
Eric

Cheers buddy!! I don't know what I would do without her LOL. I have built some crazy cars over the years, nothing newer than mid 70's. Even thou I blew alot of money at times along with engines/trans/ and rears my wife rarely complained. Many of my buddies can't believe how good I have it. I must say I made a great choice in life marrying her.
Cheers

That's a cool little deal I must say, The problem with it is I couldn't listen to Deep Purple's Highway Star on my radio when this is on. I'll have to pass and get the real deal in the spring.
Cool idea for the mustang guys non the less.

Not a lot of drone at all. It's not too loud just enough. Putting x pipe on also so that will make it a bit louder.

I removed my mufflers while installing my rear cradle inserts, mostly just to hear what it sounded like without them. Unfortunately (or so i thought) both gaskets fell to pieces leaving a decent gap between the flanges. Re-installed everything thinking I would put the gaskets on order and install them another time, but when i started her up it had a nice purr at idle, and when stepping on the throttle I was pleasantly surprised! It's not perfect, but for a FREE mod I am extremely pleased.
