    I scratch my head over replacement exhaust for performance on the 3.5 V6. You have all of 214 cubic inches with a redline of 6000 rpm. The stock exhaust doesn't seem to inhibit the engine revving at all. Replace the exhaust from the cat back with a 3 inch version and you kill low end torque. Isn't enough low end torque on this engine already dead? About the only benefit you will find with the stock engine is noise. And it seems that no one likes the sound these small engines make with open exhaust. Tinny Ricey (spelling on that word???). Think of a chainsaw. Small bore, short stroke. Think of the 3.5 V6. Small bore, short stroke, high pitched tinny noise. You can disguise it with resonators, but it will always be there.

    My TR6 had a small bore with a long stroke. The Abarth exhaust on it made it sound like a medium size V8 engine, and the TR6 used a 2.5 liter straight 6 engine.
