it won't ever save your money mac makes long tubes and h's for the six 2chamber flow are as close to a 5.0 as you can get at idle but once the revs clime it's all v6 rasp . check out 3.8mustang they have sound clips to help ya out.

I agree. You'll never get the 3.8 to sound like a v8, but you can make it sound better. When I had my sixer, I had a stock GT exhaust system welded on. The 3.8 sounds pretty good with the stock GT mufflers. You can find them pretty darn cheap too.

Also, don't waste $$ on headers. The stock manifolds for split port sixers flow remarkably well. In fact, some of the v6 guys claim the dynos showed no real gains with headers until the engine was putting out serious power (blower, etc)

We did a set of jba headers on a 4.0 sohc ranger, there was no hp increase and a loose of torque under 3,000 rpm,s. I don't know about long tube headers, but shorties are worthless on a 4.0.
