    I'm looking for something loud as hell, make my little truck sound beefy. Hard to accomplish with a V6, but any ideas? I don't know anyone personally with a decent exhaust system on their truck to compare and trying to listen to the difference between clips on the internet is pointless. Opinions on which sounds the best? The deeper and louder the better.

    I don't have any clips for you to listen to but I personally have a Magnaflow exhaust. The sound is not to deep which is what I wanted. My neighbor has a Flowmaster exhaust which is a lot deeper and louder than the Magnaflow. I'm not sure if there is anything louder than the Flowmaster.

    This video contains the best audio of my exhaust. You be the judge.

    TRD Exhaust w/ DT Long Tube Headers. It's pretty deep and mean sounding in my opinion.

    buy a Cheby :D.

    You dont want your truck to sound like sht do you? Just get a good deep sound and it will sound a lot beefier.

    Welcome to TW post pics of your truck.

    if you want the loudest, cherrybomb style glasspack is probably the way to go, but they tend to not sound as good on the V6s. you'll be very happy with the flowmaster/borla route. i have a flowmaster 40 series american thunder (don't know if they make the american thunder anymore) and i love it!
