Hey man, I did this to my 3.0, but mine was blown so it made it sound like a v-8 in the sucker and didn't really do anything as far as lost of power! Had a really nice rumble to it! But either way, you will lose some performance based on what you want to do..As soon as I took my SC off, man, I will tell you now, totally different world! You will have to get an KnockOff O2 sensor to give the computer false readings on A/F ratio to keep it from giving you CEL light all the time! Not quite sure where you live, but make sure you can hack the Cats off before you do so! B/c you won't have any if you do DI/DO b/c of the lack of room to do so!
Don't get me wrong, but it sounds great, just don't know about the performance wise for it! If you plan on addin a SC, great then go for it, but I wouldn't suggest doing it if you haven't done anything under the hood! My guess would be you would lose high end power b/c of it!

I would be cutting off the DI/SO cat as it has no O2 sensor after it and replacing it with 2 pipes. I would stick with 2.25" pipe to keep backpressure and hopefully help performance.
I was wondering on what your guys's opinion on this is and whether it would actually help performance over stock. Also would it sound ok being that its only a v6? Anyone have sound clips? Also would an 11" muffler be ungodly loud? would a 14" be better? I want it loud but not super cant hear the radio on full blast loud.
