Just wondering what a stock vs with broth the mufflers removes would sound like, I don’t want to do it and it sound like pure crap but I want to make my car sound better until I get a better exhaust and headers

It will sound = not good.
Very not good.
Don't do it

(and I don't care if it's V6 or V8, as my answer stands)

Drop the middle but keep the rears if you must do anything.

My point wanting to know if it's a V8 or V6 was because OP is considering a louder exhaust, after trialing the straight pipe. V6 with loud exhaust I can't see it sounding any good. V8 on the other hand.
Although if a V6 can be made to sound ok, id be interested in knowing how.

Will sound shite whether it's stocker v6 or v8....even with just rear resonator deleted sound is ordinary it will then have horrid drone.

I had no resi but full muffler and it sounded shithouse, especially at highway speed. I have considered trialing a different resi to get a better note but for the cost of it probably not being any good I have never bothered.

Even though my baby cammed 304 in vp ute sounded decent from outside with straight-thru muffler....drone inside cabin was unbearable.
