Skip on the K&N. Get something that protects the filter from engine heat like a Volant or Zabtech intake. You won't get much power from an intake and muffler change anyway so don't expect much. I run Magnaflow since I hate the way that a FLowmaster sounds on a 6 cylinder.

Magnaflow is going to pretty mellow. If you are wanting sound go with the Flowmaster Super 44.

yea i have the flowmaster og 40 series and it sounds good nice and deep at idle but kinda ricey after 4500 rpms
i did the airbox mod and threw on a k&n drop in filter it flows a little bit better but your gonna get a little suction noise that is fricken annoying but i think all aftermarket intakes do that

I LOOOOVE my Flow Super 44, it doesn't get ricey at all. Its the best V6 muffler I've heard if your going for deepness.

neither mod is worth your time or effort. Take off your heads and do some work on them.
