BA XR8's Made for twin system??

I was at a shop next to a Ford dealer last night, there was a BA XR8 with the back wheels up on ramps, so I got down and had a quick look under there. Where the rear muffler is on the drivers side is, there is another spot exactly opposite side, where a muffler will fit perfectly! There is even a mounting bolt sticking out from the chassis, and nothing underneath the floor to stop a full twin system from bieng run the whole length. The rear bar is even made for another tip on the left.

Is this just a Fluke, or did Ford actually sorta actually design this to happen??

Good point. There'd be a lot of exhaust from the V10 so twin pipes might be the go there. :s3

Re: BA XR8's Made for twin system??

Aaron, if you caheck out the site for D&T exhausts under the BA XR8 section, you'll see a pic of a blue BA XR8 ute with a twin system on it. That car is owned by a guy I know from work and I practically see it everyday!
Gives me a horn everytime. That system he has on that car is supposed to give the car an extra 30rwkw accodring to the D&T site!

If you were cruising down South road, Glandore, Cross rd overpass anytime during the weekday I could let you know if he is around and you could check it out!

its sound really nice and throaty when the foot gets into it. Not loud enough to attract unwanted attention but enough to turn heads!
