I've done some research and watched some videos but I'm still not sure on what I should do. I've got a bone stock 2013 XR6 being repaired and I want an exhaust that will give it a nice deep tone without it being too loud or droning a lot. What would it sound like if I replaced the first and second mufflers from the back with 2 12" hotdogs? I might think about power gain mods later down the track but nothing to serious.
I don't think you're going to get much deeper than that. Resonators may help, but I don't know if they make them for 2 1/2".
You are right. Just had a listen with headphones. So if I replace the 2 rear mufflers with 12" hotdogs it should sound similar to this? There is a small muffler/resonator? After the cat will that affect it in anyway? I appreciate the help.
Re: FG XR6 N/A need help with deciding on an exhaust
Up until now, I never really looked for after market resonators, turns out they do exist and you can get them in 2 1/2. I have a Pontiac Grand Prix with a 3.8SC under the hood. The exhaust uses a 2" resonator in series with 1 7/8" mufflers. The primary purpose of the resonator in this application is to deepen the tone. Across the street from me is a 2012 Mustang with a 5.0, at idle, it's hard to tell the difference between the two. However, when you get on them, you then can hear the difference. My 3.8 still sounds muscular, but the 5.0 does have 2 extra cylinders. I found an article that explains some of the differences, maybe it'll help.
