Hey all you tight arse's out there and those like me who can't decide what exaust system to go for yet GET THIS DONE!!!
I had my rear muffler cut off just after it comes over the axle and two pipes welded on straight out the back, sounds awsome, no drone just rumble.
Plus had it re dynoed after on the same dyno in Shootout mode and it made
239.0kw stock 246.6kw no muffler! Apart from no rear muffler there are no other mods at all. Not bad considering the exaust placed charged me $160.00.
I think thats a bit pricy. But then again look at the herrod system $3000 and 20 kws. So for an extra $2840 you'll get 11.5 kws.???

Wouldn't you love to say that about your car?You loosers
I did this and my bum-o-metre reported a loss in power and it droned like a bastard if I was doing 70 in 4th. 70 in 3rd no problem, it was fine if the revs were high. A couple of hot dogs instead of the straight thrus made things all better...just my experience....
Genebaby surprized to here you didn't like yours! I'll go test mine in 4th now! Maybe its cause yours is an xr8? Anyway good to see your a fellow Canberran!!! Will catch you at the next Club Meeting as I plan on joining! See you there and eager to here your exaust! Cheers BB-GT.
Cool, I'll see you next Thursday. I'd be interested what you thought with a couple of hot dogs in the back of yours. I'm very happy with the sound of mine now, not too loud but loud enough when I want it to be.
