There are a ton of threads about exhaust so maybe do a search. Also check out YouTube and see what others sound like.

Check Youtube like Lou advised^^^. There are many videos of 3800 exhaust, keep in mind that our engines are raspy at high rpms with certain setups!

Default drop mufflers

Like stated above. There are plenty of threads posted here on exhaust. What I have done and will be doing as a total package. Drop and replace the 'U' bend, drop the resinator, high flow cat, no mufflers. Right now I run with out mufflers. I love it. Some guys drop the cat. Not legal. I won't do it. Even though in Olympia WA. we do not do air quality test .

well here's mine.... it was windy so it overloads the microphone when i rev it (to 6250 rpm), its not really raspy in person unless i really pin it and wind it up fast
I need a better camera - YouTube

and here's a flyby
closed course flyby - YouTube

but i have to say it'd be a lot more fun if the exhaust was completely silent and all you could hear was the crazy high pitched supercharger whine when i fly by... it'd be so fun

honestly if i could do it over i would go with the zzp 3" catback with all the quiet stuff.

and for those saying the 3" would be too big for a stock engine, it's not, as long as you have those (fire starting) manifolds on there they are the bottleneck causing the back-pressure so you dont lose much down low<iframe style="border: 2px inset; width: 540px; height: 250px;" tabindex="1" id="vB_Editor_001_iframe"></iframe>
