    Trans am ws6

    I have a 2000 ws6 and put all new 3 inch pipe with no mufflers, when i get on it, it just sounds like a bunch of air but when i got the car the exhaust rusted off and was just pipe under neath the doors right where it y together and its had a sound. There a 2002 ws6 and it has slp mufflers and i think sounds louder than mine? Any ideas y its just sounds like a bunch air and has no tone, when its lower rpm it descently loud.

    Do you have Headers? Shorties/Mid/LTs? if your still with stock you won't have much difference in sound. Louder yes, but not any where near what LT's sound like.

    Does the other guy have Headers? SLP/Flowmasters mufflers have a rasp sound. Magnaflows have more of rumble, real close to the classic muscle car sound.

    A car with stock exhaust manifold and an aftermarket muffler will change the sound to, but nothing like a headers, ORY, and Muffler (with or with out CAT-Back)

    since the exhaust ended under the car in the beginning you got a lot of vibration and drone , since the road and the bottom of the car intensified the sound, making it louder inside the car. i currently have no mufflers on my car also but its ran all the way to the back of the car pointing straight out. less cabin noise but still sounds good outside of the car.

    The other guys car is all stock exhaust has slp loudmouth exhaust, I don't have headers nor does the other guy. Mine also has no mufflers and 3 inch pipe straight out the back, and still sounds like air rushing out when you get on it.

    you probably have the V6 WS6!

    although let me know which car is faster, because i seemed to lose a ridiculous amount of torque when I had an untuned stock exhaust(no backpressure)with no muffler, vs an untuned slp system(backpressure). By untuned, i mean the stock tune.

    your car is unbelievably loud. get a buddy to drive it past you. my car is the same way, i have the slp catback. its loud as hell when your just cruizing, but it doesnt seem to get louder when its in high rpms. seem is the key word. from outside the vehicle it has to be 3 or 4 times louder than inside the vehicle.

    Based on this post all you have done is made your car louder. No performance increase. The stock exhaust manifold, CATS, and y-pipe are very restrictive. Removing the muffler has not done anything for you except maybe a harder look from LEO's.

    Frost a member/sponsor does tuning for our cars. After you get headers and a ORY look him up and get a tune. Mine is getting it as soon as Uncle Sam gives back my $$$
