    2-valve v6's do sound like crap. But a DOHC v6 @ 7000+ rpm is music..

    Mmmm its just not worth it imo, but if it makes the owner happy there's nothing wrong with it

    I agree to some extent. If someone is building one up then I'd say sure it's worth it.

    But cutting up a perfectly good exhaust for no whp gain, well then I'd have to say no.

    But as you said it's theirs to be happy with.

    So Op, have @ it.

    Dropping the cat for a strait pipe will bump throttle response but mostly that will be it on the butt dyno.

    It's hard to achieve a desired sound on a stock 3800 cam.

    Honestly OP, a late model z28 muffler will give you a desent growl and won't rattle your teeth out in the high revs.

    I personally used a stock replacement 1992 z28 muffler for the 350 sbc and had pretty good results.

    Gives a good sound when under power and won't scream, "hey look @ the me and my diesel f-body!"
