Re: Custom made open exhaust... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I'm not positive you'll get the same types of sound from the 2.8 V6 as you would an older car... with all the work that goes into making modern engines light & giving them good flow characteristics I think a lot of the things that gave old engines soul is missing. In my head, that motor is going to sound like a tinny VQ... not good. :) A glass pack may help deepen the sound, but on a track car I don't think it'll last very long. Heat in the system will probably melt it relatively quickly. Seems like an annoying maintenance point. I don't recall what the V6 system looks like, but I'm imagining it has a muffler and a pair of resonators... I'd probably try it with one of the two removed and see how that sounds.
