Re: ba xre ehaust mod

Did you say "min droning"? Hmmm. Oh well, you don't want my system...lol.

Are you after a decent 2" to 2.5" cat back system? If so, you are usually looking at approx $350.00. It's all you need for a nice note with not too much "droning". Performance, that's another story.

Re: ba xre ehaust mod

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm no drone and cheap...unfortunately for the BA XR8s they don't go hand in hand. (well depends how you define cheap)

The BOSS260 is notorious for droning (lack of V8 lumpy burble) unless you start putting in some decent mufflers/resonators/hotdogs...but then price goes up.

My suggestion is to go listen to as many systems as you can before jumping into a decision. What sounds good to one person may sound sh!te to another.

Re: ba xre ehaust mod

Hi again mw260, No Drone on a Herrod system. I would guess to say 80% of people that have an after market exhaust on there BA's on this site would have a Herrod system.
Ask them about sound and if they experience any drone...

Cut out the rear muffler and replace it with two hot dogs.

Re: ba xre ehaust mod

If it's cheap you want, remove the rear muffler and expect some drone,obviously removing mufflers is going to give a sound increase but don't remove the front resonator otherwise the droning will be ridiculous.

Re: ba xre ehaust mod

If you are going to remove mufflers on the xr8 do what Genebaby said.
I know of a xr8 owner removed his rear muffler lost power no back pressure.
