Default V6 no cats, how will it sound

I have 2006 V6, it has borla axle backs, with and X-pipe. I was wondering has anyone here ran an exhaust set up on a v6 with no cats, and how did it sound?

Also what sounds best with a no cat set up, x-pipe, h-pipe, or pro chamber?

Please give me your input, I YouTubed some videos with similar set ups, but not much luck.
Thanks

The typical response on the forums will be to keep the cats in the exhaust apparently it makes the car sound horrible with them removed.

The short answer? Like ***.

Youtube it. You won't find a v6 that sounds good running straight pipes. I'll bet money on it.

Everyone I know who removed the cats regretted it - sounded like azz is the correct description.

I guess your next option could be hi flows? Idk. Catless is a V8 thing, not a V6.
