Just go a 2.5" exhaust. I'd reccomend Lukey, most people prefer just the centre muffler and no rear resinator.

If you have a large budget then there are better (dual) options, but not really worth it on a VN/VP V6.
most people prefer a drone....

rear muffler no center...

Either way, you're better off with the both imo, you just have to choose the right mufflers, but most people don't want to spend the money on two good quality mufflers. They just want the normal $250 fitted exhaust. It'd generally be much louder though without the centre muffler and just a rear resinator than the opposite way around.

i just bought a system for my VN V6..
it a 2 1/2 inch cat back with a hotdog followed by a straight through muffler with twin dumpies..

it sounds like an 8 .. i love it... but just a bit worried its too loud..

the guy said its just over EPA level and its the closest he can get it to legal...
cost $250...

Go the Lukey system. Your local Midas will be able to do it for you in about 2 hours or so. That's wat i've got on mine. Sounds okay. Has one muffler and dosen't drone really. Its loud enough for a V6. No matter what exhaust you have, it will never sound like a V8.

Lukey Systems are made thinner and sound more tinny.. Redback are a far better make...
my mate had a Lukey catback system in his st8to.. lated 1 year till it started rattling and the honeycomb type material in the muffler broke appart... he was told that lukeys products are pretty thin...

its up to you tho.. whatever you preffer.. im just telling you all i know.. so u know...

cheers...

I have advance headers, high flow cat, lukey mandrel bent 2.5" with one straight through middle muffler, with a x-force noise suppressing tip (dual layered, perforated insides) on my VP, there's almost no drone, can only really hear the exhaust with the window down or if you've got your foot down.

yeah i had a stock exhaust where i removed the resonator and put a 4inch pipe there, drone central, not that loud though. YouTube - VN Commodore Home Made Exhaust

i bought another exhaust to do it the other way around (remove muffler but keep resonator), hoping it would remove the drone. never got around to it though.

the best sounding exhaust i've heard so far on a buick is the stock one :)
