The 3.8 in my 02 stang sounded exactly like my GT.....until I turned it on.
Honestly, I've tried different setups on a few V6s but nothing is going to have that V8 sound. I had a 2-chamber Flowmaster on my 3.0 Ranger. It sounded nice and throaty at idle but once the revs built it started to sound a little "ricey". Switched to a Roush exhaust and the tone is mellow but still sounds like a 6.
The CTS is a nice car. Since it doesn't have the "V" emblem on it I would put it back to stock and enjoy it for what it is.
