Your opinion on dual exhaust w/ V6

Ok, I've seen youtubes of V6s with Borla and Magnaflow and they sound pretty good. Not as good as with V8 though, honestly.

I'm trying to do something with my exhaust either for just replacing current Overland tip with custom dual tip or replacing OEM one with Magna/Borla or custom dual.

But for those of you who replaced their V6 exhausts with Magnaflow or OEM V8 exhaust, beside better sound and look, do you feel any performance gain? Any thougt will be appreciated. Thanks.

FYI, I'm currently running with Airaid w/ high oct gas.

I havent tried on the jeep buy honestly i have never experienced a gain in power or performance with just the exhaust. In a 300hp's engine, 5 more is not something you can feel.

I will go anyway for the upgrade. The tip you choose depends on the "tuning" felling you want.

Do you notice any booming during normal driving? And any even slight performance difference?

do you mean droning? No. The vehicle came with the exhaust...so I cant tell you if there was a performance difference. I did notice a difference when I added the airaid to mine.
