This video at 4:40 sums it up best for me. It think it sounds awful (imho) and is entirely too loud, especially for a V6.
Yea, I think LT's even with resonators might be a bit much as a daily driver... People already know I'm coming from a mile away, don't need to make it even more insane. So at this point the shorties are looking enticing. But it leads me back to the very simple question. Is there a point to them? I know LT's will make power, lots of power... How well would the shorties do with stock xpipe and cats? Granted I could swap those out for performance cats or go catless, but at that point why would I not just go LT's... I'm not so concerned with power and torque, but I'm also not just buying these for sound.... Anyone have an idea of what kind of gains I can expect with stock cats and x with my atak mufflers? Would it be as noticeable as for instance my ataks were (I felt the difference when I put those on, as opposed to my CAI which was mostly just added engine noise IMO).

I know if I actually wanted more pull I should get some 3.73 gears, as I still have stock 2.93 or 2.73 or whatever they are... But that will come later when I don't have as much highway driving in my life...
