    So what is the answer? I'm putting 2.5 inch KPM cat backs on my sportwagon. Go see Paul at Elite on Beatty Rd Archerfield. All his staff have exhaust systems. He can show you and let you hear what might work. But beware...Paul will do his best to sell you something

    The best answer to the ops question is...

    NONE! Don't waste money on pointless V6 mods.

    My wife's car sounds like my VE when it's switched off too. Any higher in the rev range and it sounds exactly like the 4 cyl it is. It's like getting a huge booming bass with 2" tweets - just not going to happen and pointless pretending it will. For the record: Loud does not = sound like V8.

    My 6 doesn't sound like an 8 through the whole range. I said that at low rev's it comes pretty damn close i reckon. Really lumpy and pretty deep note. I'll try to get a video up at some point of it. Can't wait to get a v8 when off p's -_- .

    Keep in mind you're running with a different engine to the current run of commodores. The buick 6 sounds VERY different to the current one.

    Wouldn't bother buying better cats for a v6, grab some secondhand off a v8 slightly higher flowing. I have 400CPI cats from an ls1 on mine, didn't cost much and flow a bit more, crackles and pops :)

    Alright guys I am trading in my omega for a ve Sv6. Now in order to get the loudest sound with deep note on my new sv6 with no drone will this work for me????

    2.5 inch X force catback system with pacemaker headers/etractors, high flow cats, removed resonator. Did I miss anything ??????

    The front end of my exhaust seems to significantly reduce drone when cruising, 70-100. Which is fantastic compared to the rubbish system I had on my last car.

    Pacemakers >>>>> Twin Cats >>>> Twin 2 1/4" >>>>> Single 2 1/2" the rest of the way back.

    Its bloody loud when giving it the boot but when you're maintaining rpm between 1300-1850 its pretty quiet.

    SHould I also have the centre / front muffler removed????

    Also is it true that the smaller the length of the rear muffler the louder and how about the inlet size. WHat is an inlet. Does a bigger inlet improve the sound of the car????

    Mate.. honestly.

    Heres what you SHOULD do if you own a SV6.

    1. Replace mufflers (pacemaker, redback, difillipo etc) I have pacemakers on mine in stainless.

    2. Headers/Extractors. I bought mine for $395 from the distributor in dandenong south. Then got it coated in castlemaine for $250

    3. Cats (if you must) 100CPI cats are the best flowing, probably abit of overkill, id go with ballistic's or even the xplode ones on here. probs around $300-$400

    4. Cut out the hotdogs and crimp section in the stock exhaust and replace with stainless steel 2.25" pipe. $50 (if that)

    DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE. If you go out and 'upsize' to a 2.5" or 3" exhaust you will be loosing power and fuel economy UNLESS it's turbo/supercharged.
    The exhausts on the SV6's are pretty much perfect cept for what I mentioned above. Don't waste your money on a $2000 catback, it's uneeded.

    Look, you have been given a lot of decent advise in this thread and obviously you don't want to take it. To me it sounds as if you want the biggest, loudest fark-off exhaust known to mankind rather than a decent low growl you could have. Go get some pacemakers, bash the guts out of your cats, a 3 inch system to the rear mufflers and then get those (I think they are called) 'J pipes' people put on V8s. Thats the only way you will get the god-awful noise you want.
