mufflers

what mufflers will make a 4.3 v6 sound as close to a v8 as possible? I'm not looking for the bumble bee effect.

Flowmasters sound good, I just can't stand the interior resonance... I'm going to dual glasspacks on my burb... kids are annoying enough, I don't need my truck yelling at me too...

If you want a V6 to not sound like 2 three-cylinder engines, you need a single tailpipe. Guaranteed.

go with single exhuast. with a muffler with some back pressure or you will lose some bottom end. I had a 4.3 in a s-10 i use to have. not very many mods to it and it ran 16's in the 1/4 mile.

well

As you know, a sound wave has a certain resonance at a certain given length so the longer or shorter the exhaust system the sound will change with it. Also where the muffler is placed will affect the sound. I sure have to agree with the Flowmaster comment, love the sound but hate the resonating of the muffler itself. Maybe going into a larger quiet muffler mounted in a cross wise position in the rear would work.

There is a Flow made especially for 6 cyl. It sounds like a stock 350. You want a 3 chamber whatever you get.......

Swing set pipe works good... esp if they are straight pipes

I love the magna flow... they are quiet inside but the outside sounds awesome... I think their website actually has some .wav files that you can hear what they sound like.
