Default anyone do JUST a muffler delete ?

as in replacing the muffler with 'straight pipe', leaving stock resonator.

(or maybe you removed resonator too)

wondering how good / bad that sounds...
I don't mind loud if the sound is good.

OK well I have done this;
and not surprisingly,
the sound is not that great .

typical V6 "blatt" sound.. ugh..
not *too* loud, but does resonate louder at certain rpm's..
and burbles / pops on overrun.

I will try swapping in a (spare) 3" flowmaster small chamber or a 'cherry bomb' -
hopefully one will knock down the blatt

the one muffler I would consider is the shorter round dynomax superturbo. I have found these to be very near stock sound but flow way better than stock. If it turned out to be a bit noisy, I'd replace the second muffler with another similar configuration superturbo.

did you note any mpg diff with the delete?

thanks juma for the suggestion.

I *just* did this only 4 days ago, so havent seen any trends.

but I would be *really* surprised if there was any measurable FE gain (or loss) from this mod...

I have the mufflex delete installed and love it. There is some drone when MDS engages but this can be turned off. I will be removing the resonators this weekend also. The truck runs and and sounds killer!

I replaced the stock muffler with the Mufflex single exhaust aggressive system. I'm very pleased with the sound, no drone and there's just enough sound at a low tone that it sounds good. It does have a louder note when you hang your foot in it and that is what I wanted. It does not sound like a pissed off chainsaw which I have heard a few V6's sound like.

I contacted Mufflex and they said that they didn't have a system for the 3.6, after doing a little research everything I found said that the 3.6 and 5.7 used the same size pipe so I just went ahead and ordered it. It fit like a glove, took about 15 minutes to put in on my lift.
