    why start a new thread when i just answered in your other thread...once again, be patient and save your money up...if you can find a V exhaust for free or under $100 then that would be ideal

    The 3.2 benefits from going true dual. Id snatch up 3.6l exhaust resonator, and have 2" pipes run from res. To 2 seperate single-in/single-out magnaflows. That is what I would do on 3.2

    Picking up this old thread. Installed the Magnaflow cat-back dual exhaust for the CTS-V on my 3.2 2003. X-pipe and end-mufflers with 2.5" piping. Had a very hard (and loud) sound out of that combo. Added 2 seperate single in/out magnapacks as suggested above. Now it has a round deep tone, a sporty roar with acceleration and a nice rumble when on the highway. All n all - this works, sounds good and looks cool.

    By the way - installed LEDs exterior but could'nt get it to work in taillights and front turn-signals - the fuses kept going...

    Next up - the Volant CAI.

    You won't get a baritone muscle sound from a V8. Best you can do is straight pipes + Magnaflows. Or anything + Magnaflows.
