2012 V6 exhaust choices not named Flowmaster

Ok so I want to upgrade my stock exhaust on my 2012 V6 but Im not happy with what Ive seen out there so far in terms of sound. I want the deep muscle car sound and everything Ive heard so far has more of a high pitch "rattle" sound. Like angry bees. I want that deep GT sound. Any ideas? Ive listened to every video of Flowmaster and I just dont hear what I want. I checked out Pypes and they sound the same. Corsa is too expensive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

How loud you want your exhaust is also going to be part of the decision. I think part of the problem is that you want a v8 muscle car sound from a v6 powered car which is not really going to happen. You don't have 2 more cylinders and the displacement to make the low grumble that you want from a v8 engine. You might be able to get somewhat close if someone else knows of something for a v6 that approaches a deep tone but generally a v6 will always produce more of a raspy or high pitch "rattle" sound like you described.

I tried Bassani axle backs and now have Borla S on my 2012 V6. You'll get more people seeing the thread if you use the 2011+ V6 forum, though. Personally, I liked the bassani, lower growl , but they definitely have an interior drone. My wife couldn't stand it, so now I just found some used Borla- S axle backs, and am trying to sell the bassanis. The Borlas have a higher pitch, but no drone. Like everyone says, you won't get a V8 sound. Funny, though because I hear some pontiac V6's with a low sound. Wonder how GM did it? I am getting shorty headers, so I can keep the stock catalytic converters, and I hope the sound gets a little lower and meaner.

I put 14 inch magnaflows on the 2012 v6 I had. No drone and a great sound. You have a v6. Deep and rumbley is not really part of that.
