Can't see YouT from current location, but I figure it'* an XP build etc.

Fab..if you want your car to sound evil and do evil things all you need to do is save up money.

I've worked on or built:
Turbo Regal
MP112 SC'd GTP
450hp+ Bonnevile
Custom Regal (my current)
and lots more.

Nearly anything can be built in the garage.

Music to my ears? The 3.6L direct injected V6 with twin dual overhead cams, variable valve timing, variable intake timing and 300 hp naturally aspirated. When the car takes off and gets over 3500 rpms, the variable intake phaser switches runners and the cams phase making the engine scream up to 7k rpms all while the fuel is directly injected to the cylinder and lit by a coil on plug ignition system.
It'* a mechanical symphony.

I also get a hard-on every time I hear my turbo slowly spool in this video

And of I will never forget the sound of my old '96 (RIP)

mmm nah that caddy sounds too raspy and ricey to me in my opinion. i like the throaty lopey idle of the xp with dumpers it fools everybody thinking its an 8 but its really a 6. i wonder how loud that is in real life though. i know the 455 h/o in my dream gp shakes the ground and i mean literally and thats with the dumpers open. my dad had a 92gp but it was a plain jane se 3.1 and the only options it had was ground effects, dual exhaust, steering wheel mounted radio/cassette, buckets, and foglights.

Any v6 sounds raspy on the high end. Only way to make a v6 sound good is keep it at idle or turbo it.

It fools them at idle, when you get on it I think the 3800'* don't sound that good in my opinion. Unless you're running a turbo and the front and rear header are equal lengths dumping into a turbo then it doesn't sound that bad. I had a flow master on my regal and I really didn't like the sound of it so I just went with gp duals and it sounds much better.

I know this is the wrong board to say this, but any 3800 no matter what you do to it will still sound like a lawnmower.
