might actually have to do something with the intake, downpipe, resonator...almost the whole exhaust system to get the sound u want. im not 100 percent sure but there are some members on here with some pretty nice sounds to their ride, check the sights and sounds section there are a few vid clips there to get some ideas

Turbo. Even then it won't sound quite like a muscle car. You want a muscle car sound? Buy something with a V8 or swap a V8 into yours.

Do you have the 3800 or the 3400 engine?

The 3400 actually sounds better. The 3800 sounds better with boost or quiet :p

Not really gonna happen regardless of what engine you have. A V6 is just not going to have the sound of an old school muscle car

Agree with this. Turbo 3800's sound the best IMO but still don't quite have the v8 sound. Even with a big cam like mine has it sounds great and I love it but still not the v8 roar...
