    V6 with V8 sound?

    I ended up leaving the exhaust pretty much stock, other than putting on the pair of Flowmasters. Will post a video at some point soon for others to see. It sounds pretty good with the 3.6L that GM put in that car.

    Wanted: Saab 2.8L parts

    I am looking for Saab 2.8L High Feature V6 parts, such as the turbo, heads, intake manifold, ECU, and transmission from either a 9-5 or 9-3. I do not have funds currently, but will trade the heads, intake manifold, ECU, and almost brand new transmission in my 2005 Buick LaCrosse CXS (3.6L High...

    Saab V6 Turbo onto 3.6L?

    Aaaaaand... Someone beat us to the parts. Didn't get a chance to go down there with money until yesterday, so we missed out. The turbo and related parts had already been pulled from the Saab. At some point, there WILL be a performance thread for my modifications to Jumba the shitty LaCrosse, but...

    Saab V6 Turbo onto 3.6L?

    V6 with V8 sound?

    Thank you for that tidbit I hadn't noticed. I was just hoping to avoid having totally experimenting, as I have a bit of a small budget for the project

    V6 with V8 sound?

    Current thought process: 2.5-3" pipe. Modify the underside so I can hang dual pipes, and use a pair of H pipes to hold them together. 1 dummy and 1 real. Either remove the flexible pipe hose thing GM put on the current headers and make new combined pipes, or just go with new headers to match the...

    So new mufflers and headers?

    V6 with V8 sound?

    I am looking to modify my daily driver to sound more like my vintage car. It has a 3.6L V6 in it, and the other has a 390 FE in it. What changes do I want to make to my exhaust to get that sound?

    Semi new from South

    Hi y'all! Newish car guy, high school student. Have a 2005 Buick LaCrosse CXS for daily duty, and a 1966 Ford Thunderbird that serves as both project and precision event car. Been looking to modify the LaCrosse to sound and feel more like the Thunderbird, which is the main reason I joined here.
