Anyone ever pay attention to the Nissan exhausts on the Z, G35 and their truck? I think that it definately has the best exhaust note for a 6 cylinder vehicle. Its melodic. Other companies need to produce like that. I havent personally heard too many AEM Lotus exhausts but it appears that the Larini may have the best note from the videos that I have seen.

My favorite 6 cyl. sound is from my former 2.7l Porsche Boxster. Sounds great at high RPM. That was in stock form.


I know a guy who autocrosses with me with a spec Boxster. Has full exhaust and de-cat. Sounds beautiful.


So IMO, the current Porsche flat six (2.7, 3.4, 3.6, 3.8)is the best. The GT3 sounds good in videos :p

My Stage 2 on my Lotus (4 cylinder) is the best note around.

Throaty, not raspy or cheap sounding.

Stage II sounds awesome except at low (3-3.5k) RPMs.


At 4k and above, it really wakes up. I am gonna try the Larini with Euro grilles soon :D
same with my Von Hep, it has a bit "deeper" sound than the stage 2, but sounds amazing on the 2nd cam everyone says it sounds like a "crotch rocket" LOL

I6s always sound better than almost anything else short of v12s. Listen to a well-tuned BMW I6, an old 240Z, or even older Jaguar E-type, with appropriate exhausts of course.
If you've ever been lucky enough, savour the note of a highly-blown I6 - like an ERA.

350z or any infinity sounds real bad.

I love WRX/STi boxer exhausts! Sound badass.

I agree about the Nissans. Sounds like someone with a sinus problem moaning in a tin can but it's a distinct sound that I can recognize as another G35 drives by.

Also agree on the Porsche and STi Boxer engines.
