Just bought a sweet 16 with a v/6. It doesn't have overboard exhausts. Wondered if anyone has a feel for how a V6 sounds with overboard exhausts and if silent choice would be available as an addition.

It has more of a Va room like a bus, sounds pretty decent at idle speeds but that is about it.

Sounds like it is not worth the time or money. Thanks.

My first Donzi was a 1999 C16 with V6 and it had the Corsa through-hull exhaust manifold and tips.
It was not loud.
It did sound throaty like any other performance-oriented V6 with (for lack of a better analogy) a glass-pack muffler. Since it was dual exhaust it did have a nice harmonic to it.

It will never sound like a small block V8, though. I followed the C16 with a C18 with MX6.2 MPi with stock through-hull exhausts and Corsa tips. When under hard throttle it sounded like a nice small-block Corvette with a performance exhaust.

My next Donzi had twin 454 Mag HO's with through hull-exhausts. It had a Quick and Quiet exhaust system. With the exhaust switch open, that one sounded like the front row at a NASCAR race. LOL!

So true. Can't make a v6 sound like a v8. Weird but true
really can't say why. Just the way it is

With through hull exhaust no one would ever "wonder" if you had a V8........If you have ever heard a V6 camaro or V6 mustang with an exhaust system you would know exactly what I'm saying:yes: BIG difference from the V8.

If you listen carefully, you can hear the V6 in the 16 I was driving. Mostly when the "photoboat" is pretty close (about 1:36 - 2:05 in the video). The background sound of engine is the 454 in his boat.

Definitely NOT a V8. Sounds almost OK at idle. Anything above that, not so good if you like the sound of a V8.
