Reasonably priced cat back exh for 99-3.8L

Any suggestions on who makes a reasonably priced cat back system for the 3.8l v-6?

My motor is bone stock and I dont think I can bear the wimpy exhaust note any longer. Also, can I expect better torque or power from cat back alone? I dont want to go the header route as Ill only have the car for another year or so.

Its a daily driver with the usual power steering whine-is there any way to loose that sound too?

You won't notice the power increase from 104rwhp to 107rwhp. I'd save my money


306, TFS heads, Victor EFI, XE282, Tremec, 10" tires, and NX nozzle

I'm not sure if this section is the best to ask for V6 exhaust advice.

Best thing you can do for a 3.8 is keep it quiet.

It started in the Road Race/Autox forum and was moved here.

Thanks, Dick Tracy, but to those in the 6 cyl forum, it looks like he posted it here first.

I have takeoff exhaust from a GT with a custom h-pipe on mine and love it. I'd recommend going that route, as it sounds good and was cheap enough.

104rwhp? I think you overestimate parasitic loss. You might be thinking of the 94-98 sixers. His 99 is starting at 190 crank hp, and is probably seeing in the 150's at the rear wheels
