good sounding exhaust for 03 v6

my cousins got an 03 v6 auto, and he wants it to sound meaner, is there any exhaust that will make it sound v8-ish? i dont know anything about what exhaust sounds better. also are there some easy bolt ons that are worth while for the 06?

thanks, ryan.

JBA makes a set of headers for that application specifically - might add to the deeper american muscle car sound that people enjoy in their cars - I cant put up a link but if you go to JBA's web site it will show you the example of them

Like said above, it's never going to sound like a V8. At idle mine confuses a few people because it's very deep and raspy, but as soon as I rev everyone that even remotely knows about Mustangs can tell it's not a V8. For a relatively stock V6, headers aren't worth the money, as the stock ones are surprisingly efficient up to around 300+hp which I doubt your cousin will be making anytime soon. Also tell him not to touch the cats. Gutting the cats on a V6 mustang = instant honda civic sound. Trust me, I know. Keep the stock headers and cats, and have a custom catback welded up. I went with dual Flowmaster 40s and couldnt be happier.

Depends on your opinion of "good". I have a Bassani cat-back dual system on my 95 and to tell you the truth, I think it sounds like crap. It sounds a bit fart-pipe-civic-ish.
