I dont think the 4.8is exhaust is bolt on... But I dont know for sure. It may need some modification to work.

My 4.6is exhaust on my 3.0 provided literally no change in noise. It was disappointing. Looks great though.

Yes it bolts on to the 3.0, no you will not notice much of an improvement in sound. Do it for aesthetic

It will not bolt on - the flanges are different. Mufflers from the 4.6is will bolt on to a 3.0. I've done it, and just a little difference in sound. It's worth it for looks but not sound.
