    exhaust question

    I am in the process of buying a 95 camaro, its a 3.4L and i have no clue on what exhaust kit to get. I wanted to get Borla but they dont make it for my size motor. I want to get something loud and aggressive. I also read the stop and dont ask exhaust questions but i know the differece about the kinds , just dont know what name brand to do with, thing like that.



    Thanks John.

    Uh, don't sink any dough into your v-6 is my first bit of advice. Camaro v-6's with exhaust sound just silly. If your wanting a v-6 due to gas mileage then just drive it the way it is. Is there any reason you can't manage an LT1 of the same year or even a year or two older? They are pretty cheap these days too. Your 25 man, it's time to step up don't ya think?

    You can get any LT1 exhaust kit for your 3.4 but don't expect to sound like a V8. It will rumble on idle but past 3K rpms it will sound like a V6. Trust me, I own a 3.8 v6 fbody, I had flows 80 3" CB it sounded like ass, then swap the muffler to a dynomax and never looked back. Their point is 3.4s/3.8s are intended mainly for economical use. But don't get discourage with these guys giving you some flack owning a v6 and modding your ride, some of these guys just don't see the point modding a six banger. My 3.8 fbody ran 14.7 @ 96 mph.

    A V-6 sounds great with true duals using 2 inch pipes. Of-course, you will have to install a catalytic convertor on the drivers side to make it street legal in most states. But, as I said. A V-6 sounds good with true duals going over the axle, through straight through, noise cancelling mufflers (one located on each side of the rear tub) and out the rear from beneath the rear bumper, one on each side in the stock location like on the Z-28 or SS. It is a setup that you don't see often, but when you find one, they really sound good.

    Congrats to you on buying a house. I admire the custody thing with your son too. Very responsible. I think you should just drive the v-6 camaro for what it is. Ya you can put true duals on if you want but listen man that might cost you as much as the damn car. True duals over the axel gets expensive. Throw in a cat and maybe some custom exhaust work and viola $$$. Really, save the cash.

    true duels on a v6 is overkill in my opinion....i have a 99 3.8 with a single in/dual out flowmaster 40 series delta flow with a straight pipe in place of my cat, sounds mean and throaty down low just like z, but at about 4k's it gets raspy...which is expected....im in the same boat you're in, ive got bills, a beautiful 2 year old daughter, g/f so i didnt have the money for a z or i would of been on that like ugly on diane keaton, plus i picked up my 99 a4 with t-tops and 60k miles about 2 years ago for $4k so i couldnt pass it up

    Thumbs up

    After all of that was said (&^%@%(*&(*^$) I still say that a V-6 and an inline 6 and a with true duals has a sound that is great and the power increase isn't bad either. Each (inline and V) has a different sound of-course, but both have a sound that is good. Duals on the V-6 is a setup that one does not see often because (as stated be one here on the form) it is only an "ole" 6 so why bother with it. So many people seem to think that way. Duals on a V-6 picks up horsepower just like duals on a V-8 picks horsepower. Duals on a V-6 (as well as an inline 6) produces a sound that is unique, and different and increases the horsepiwer just like the duals on the V-8 increases the power. I have had several 6 cylinder cars over the years with true duals. The power increase and the sound that I picked up with the duals was well worth the time and the dollars it took to install. Guys, don't put down the V-6 (or inline 6 for that matter) just because it is a 6 cylinder. You just might be surprised at what a 6 cylinder can do and or can be modified to do. Sometimes they can be down right awsome.

    LOL! Offended huh? Listen Napoleon, if I were to buy a v-6, it wouldn't be a camaro. If I was hard strapped with bills and lack of money then hows about a 4 door economical piece of transportation that my kids could get in an out of easily. The name camaro means 2 door sports car which in turn isn't associated with v-6 now is it? Which aslo means why put a dual exhaust on a v-6 2 door camaro when your already strapped for money? Your almost correct as far as the age thing goes... Naw 30 something guys still need v-8s. It's when I turn 50 I will look at diesels and v-10s or caddys. BTW do you think 30 something is too old to kick some ass?

    You went overboard with the insults. I hope to see an appology. I see you only have 6 posts. That is just not the way we talk to each other on this tech site. No daddy to teach you manners. Don't worry your daddy's coming soon.

    Alright that is enough of the insults and flaming. If you don't like what the guy bought then leave it at that. No need to start on him. He was asking a question. Pm's is where the flaming needs to go.

    Just get a Magnaflow muffler and dual pipes from a good muffler shop. I had a 96 V6 and I picked up a couple MPG and it sounded much better. For a few bucks more, get a SLP valance and run it out the center. Kinda trick.

    John, have a muffler shop fab you up a complete system. It shouldn't be too costly, and it will sound a great deal better over stock. I think what Huskerz1 was implying, was to not get caught up in a six cylinder "build". My advice, if you plan on building her at all that is, is, focus on the suspension and rear, first (after you have a little fun w/the exhaust note).

    Swapping in an LTx/LSx will be a breeze, and the beauty of it is, you can build the engine to you're specs (in you're new garage) while you're driving around with the 3.4. Tremendous opportunity with six cylinder F-Body's, insurance wise, especially! Enjoy you're new ride bro, and welcome.

    Whatever you do, don't put a flowmaster on it.

    I had a 98 Grand Prix GT and made the flowmaster mistake. It drones and rasps like MAD!.

    I ended up switching to dynomax turbo mufflers. they sounded much better. Not as much rasp or drone, but just as loud/deep outside.

    But, the still didn't sound "good."

    But, if you have to, dynomax or magnaflow will sound the best.
