Re: My '13 WK2 V6 sounds LOTS better now, all for less than $100!

Any sound clip yet?

Although I really don't believe you can get a good v8 type rumble out of these v6's.

But I'm hoping so.

No; sorry. I'll try to get my son to do that.

It definitely sounds like a V6 and NOT a V8.

In the summer of '03 I bought a new '04 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. I LOVED that 'car'; it was the finest vehicle I had ever owned, and with 1st-rear ratio of almost 5:1, a 2-speed t-case, a very versatile variable-ride-height air suspension, and an off-pavement package, it was HIGHLY effective off-pavement.

But it was quiet, sounding not at all like a high-performance 450HP V8. On each exhaust bank, it had a turbo and 2 cats. Both exhaust pipes dumped into a HUGE stainless-steel muffler behind the rear axle. So off to Mighty Muf'ler the Cayenne went, where, as a first attempt and to see and hear what the result would be, we removed the muffler and replaced it with a pair of straight pipes. (I have to get going very soon; will post pics this afternoon.) The result was the sounds of a high-performance V8 that made just enough noise to sound FABULOUS. My Cayenne was the envy of MANY Cayenne owners I ran into at the Porsche dealership and at Porsche Club meetings.

I just wish my JGC sounded like that, but it's a V6 and not a V8.

I'll bump this and post a video in 24 hours. Love the sound now, just slightly louder with a burp burp but hardly and drone on the highway. Cost me 25 for a black tip and 10 for pipe.

Oy, that 3.7 exhaust sounds burpy. Whatever works for you I guess.

I just added the Gibson axle back system to my 3.6 and it sounds much better than it did stock. Definitely doesn't sound like a Honda and it added just the right amount of noise to hear it at start up and under acceleration in the cabin. Nothing obnoxious.

(You can probably guess that you guys aren't going to get any sound examples from the OP, as this is thread is looong dead since the last post.)

Someone's already made a video for the Gibson, so I don't see myself making another one.

I have been thinking about the Gibson for a while! Hmmmmmm how much was the cost from the muffler shop to do the swap out?
