Default Which aftermarket mufflers sound awesome?

Hey everyone!! I've got a 1999 Chevy Monte Carlo Z34 with a 3.8l supercharged and chipped V6. I've got the stock exhaust on it and cant afford a whole new system. One of my mufflers is starting to leak so I was just going to replace both mufflers. As most of you know, 3.8l engines don't sound good with the mufflers off (just my opinion, don't hate me). I want the car to sound good, low, and have a nice rumble but don't want it to shout at the world. I guess I still want it to be quiet but a tad louder than stock. I know, I'm picky sorry but anyone have any thoughts or ideas? Thanks guys and have an awesome memorial weekend!!!!!!!

Well your best bet is to search youtube and find something you like, here is what i have. No mufflers and a glasspack in place of the resonator, not what i'd reccomend if you don't want it shouting at the world lol.

Sup dude id recommend magnaflow for sure, not obnoxious but hums at a good volume as well as back pressure... Especially having a supercharged monte when you hit that gas damn it sounds mean

I'd have to dig through my records for an exact price but it was a couple hundred bucks. I believe its an 18" cherry bomb glasspack, and the mufflers were replaced with 2.5" pipe. Must have been all they had as stock size at that point is 2.25". It didn't throw any codes or anything, just fyi, it is quite loud and does drone alot on the highway.

It's still a v6 so it really wont sound like a v8, but its very loud compared to stock. A cop told me it was loud while i was pulled over for something else. Just cruising around its fairly quiet, except for around 2k rpm, thats the loudest point. I didn't notice any power gains and i'd say the glasspack is still holding up fairly well, i've had it for a little over a year.

There is a possibility you may get pulled over, depends what rpm you're turning when you pass a cop and what they think. Had i not been pulled over for another reason, i dont think i would have been stopped just for exhaust.

Wow my comment is where do you find a 3.8 supercharged engine that has been "chipped"?
