Take the exhaust manifolds off of the heads. That will be loud.

the 3.0 just isn't a loud engine, to be honest.

Maybe if you got new cams with some serious lope and ran open exhaust.

ur a dork! a muffler is designed to quiet or resonate sound. Therefore the loudest muffler possible is none at all. You want loud... run open headers. It will make ur ears bleed while u drive. its sound like **** but it'll be loud.

I ran 2.25 inch duals on mine with 3.5" stainless tips. It sounded good and had a nice cackle when getting on it. People who say it doesnt sound good without a muffler usually just cut it off, pipes ran out the back make a huge difference. That, or get a flowmaster super44.

Good idea. Get help from Bose so they can make a small little V6 sound like a V12 with their acoustic wave technology.
