    Straight pipe on a V6? *video*

    Here is a Video of a 2010 V6 Camaro. To me the exhaust doesn't sound too bad. It does sound much better than the magna flow exhaust.
    Edit: okay nevermind after listening to it over and over again. I'm not liking the way it sounds.

    Probably sacrificed some power too, due to improper backpressure (assuming they're true "straight pipes" and not a kit).

    I don't think it's possible to get a V6 to sound good. My G35 wasn't bad but compared to a V8 or well tuned I4.... meh.

    Thats true. It's very tricky to get a V6 to sound good to any V8 kinda guy...I myself am one of those...

    however...Corsa did a decent job on the kit they made for us, I just wish they would go in to full production on it.

    here is a video of what it sounds like

    Sounds good but still has that V6 thing. They just have that thin, kinda "reedy" sound to 'em. Maybe if they made a 5 or 6 litre?
    I dunno.....

    I agree, and unfortunately there is only so much a custom exhaust can do for it. Being a V8 guy though, I have to say the corsa has the best sound so far and not because we are a vendor for them...

    even if they had come out with a 5 or 6 litre it still would sound similar...6 exh waves vs. 8

    Yeah even with a 5 or 6 liter v6 I think it will sound similar to the 4.3L Vortec engines.





    Me, myself is a V8 guy that why I'm going to stick with the Stock exhaust on my CTS
