Usually to get a v8 sound you need to have a v8. its that simple. but if you have a v6 you can enhance the sound by putting a different muffler setup. By doing this, visit a local muffler shop and ask to get a straight through design muffler put on your truck. what this does is lower the restriction of exhaust coming from the motor. Thus produces more noise, and gets the sound desired. Also magnaflow and Borla will add a nice note to your vehicle. Not only can you change the muffler but the headers as well. they typically dont alter the sound but very little, although it does give you more HP and torque. But just replacing the tip wont do anything for you, but for looks only. Be sure to tell the specialists what kind of sound you are looking for buying a muffler from a shop. I hope i was helpful to your inquiry, Jon.

Is performance affected if you remove baffles fron reinhart slipon pipes?

The baffles in slip-on mufflers do more than just reduce noise; they also work to create a backpressure that helps to evacuate the combustion chamber of exhaust gases. Removing them will have a negative effect.

Is there more horsepower running without a muffler?

no *Correction - Reduced back pressure does usually result in more horsepower. Some cars run with resonators rather than mufflers which reduces the noise without as much back pressure, thereby increasing horsepower.
