Leave it stock if you want it to sound as good as it can. You can't make a 6 sound like an 8.

Truck will sound like someone farting in a bath tub. Save your money, it will keep you from looking like a fool.












Well maybe.

Take a hacksaw and cut the exhaust off at the back of the cab. Not sure what that will do. Maybe louder and probably fail inspection next year.

Seriously, you can try a deep-tone muffler from jegs. About $30. turn down directly behind the muffler. Can't change the catalytic converter.

Flow-master 40 series makes everything sound good. Had them on my old V6 mustang. People thought I had a V8. Have two in my room waiting for me to put them on, one for my truck and another one for my wife's Mazda Rx8 2 cylinder rotary motor. Truck is going to be a little tricky because I'm gong to add in a cut off so at a press of a button I can run stock exhaust while hunting and the flow-master exhaust while driving down the road. Wife's Rx8 is just waiting on time to install it.

Don't do the 40 series if you go with flowmaster. Drone is pretty bad. Go with the 44. Probably the closest you can get to a V8 sound, it's a bit deeper than the 40 series. Google your trucks engine and then add flowmaster 44 and listen to exhaust vids. Keep catalytic converters on. If you go with a tip like a 3.5 inch or 4 inch outlet that's about 18 or 24 inches it will add to the rumble. That's the best and honest help I can give you bud.

I did flowmaster exhaust and cat dumped behind the cab on my '80 Chevy with an inline 6 and it sounds mean. On a newer truck it is going to be a toss up . Good luck

There is no way to make a V6 sound good.

I had an S-10 ZR2 with the 4.3l V6 and I put a flowmaster 40 and dumped it at the back axle. It sounded like a small 8. I was happy with it.

Put a V8 with turbo mufflers in it...

Seriously, nothing to do to make it sound better.

Besides keeping it quiet allows you to sneak up on deer at night much better....

Matter of opinion I suppose. They all sound like bumble bees to me. They will never sound like a nice V8.

That's why I will keep stock exhaust on my Cummins diesel. I HATE the way they sound with louder exhaust.

Some people think v6's can sound good and mean. But people who actually know cars will disagree. I've never heard a v6 with exhaust that I couldn't point out in 1/2 a second as being a v6. They just don't sound right. There's just a throaty deep rumble that you can only get with a v8 or v10, anything less just doesn't cut it. But at least it wouldn't buzz around like a little rice burner sounding like a wasp on crack that just got kicked in the nether regions.

No go back to thinking about the bolt on's for your wife and look further into new knobs for her controls.

I'm not a fan of modifying exhaust. Doesn't really do much IMO. My truck is a '91 and the cat went out and pipes got a hole, so I went ahead and replaced it. My dad built hotrods, muscle cars, etc when I was a kid. He put high performance exhaust and it did make a difference. Dodge Dakota, I would leave it as is.

I thought the OP asked how to make a V6 sound as nice as possible? I guess it reads tell me how a v6 will never sound good.
