    Well, you could just run a straight pipe.

    Personally, I like the sound of glasspacks.

    It's not the loudest thing you could run, but I've had a single-in/dual-out Flowmaster 40 setup on both my vans. It beefs up the six cyl tone.

    If you want to make it as loud as possible, straight pipes..but since you live in PA, cops and neighbors might not appreciate it.

    If you want it to sound good, install a good cam with a profile that gets the idle quality you want, run some headers that mix the exhaust pulses in the way you want, that alone can change the sound quite a bit and toss in some good mufflers so the noise level is tolerable.

    I found hooker max flow mufflers are the ticket to a good sound. No droning and raspiness is substantial reduced

    for the six, if you really want the cool sound, look into getting headers too. Langdon's makes cast iron headers, and you can also get tube headers from clifford. Another option is to find a welder who can work with cast iron and "split" your exhaust manifold.

    Here's the clifford headers (pic borrowed from Jrinaman):

    I'm running stock manifold to crusty pipes to rusty basic muffler with huge hole where the rear round seam split wide open. It all looks perhaps original. Sounds like a big fart when I punch it to go up a hill, otherwise quiet LOL. But future plans would be the Clifford headers to flowmasters*. There is a guy in town with an early 60's Ford pickup with a 300-ish inline six with dual 2 barrels and headers, don't know the mufflers, but it's pretty darn loud, sounds almost like a V8. I think that is what you're looking for.

    My 108 with 307 V8 has stock manifolds run to a single pipe to a single flowmaster then out the side. Has a real nice distinctive V8 note but not overly loud.

    Rat exhaust

    I have a rusty down pipe with a flex pipe slipped half way up to a 3" adapter 2' of pipe, a tractor muffler from the local farm and fleet, 4 more feet of 3" pipe a short length of 3" flex pipe and another foot or so of 3" pipe for a tail pipe. So basically what ever you have laying around can become an exhaust system with 10 bucks worth of clamps adaptors and flex pipe! 😉
