It depends on your set up/ tune, etc. IN GENERAL... I heard some good things and bad things about getting those for a V6. For one, I heard there's a more pronounce "rasp" sound. And unless you plan on adding a power adder (turbo, supercharge, or nitrous) you are basically wasting your money. But I think they are sweet. My suggestion go on youtube and search for V6's with longtube headers. Some sound good and others.... well, you be the judge.

i have mac ceramic coated long tubes to a true dual gt takeoff setup. sounds better than any n/a v6 i've seen. helps the raspiness go down after you break them in. haven't even thought about changing my exhaust ever since they went in. i saw about 15-20hp and 10-15tq

That's good to know. Well, it seems that you may got what's it offered. Sometimes you have to wonder if the claims are true. I was told that my x pipe will give about 15HP. My HP didn't really change at all. I got more torque...but I'm happy too.

The pace setters are going to sound completely different and won't give the same performance. The ceramic coated macs are OEM quality with a great sound. Well worth the extra cash. If you get regular stainless steel they'll probably rust through in 10ish years
