what system and mags?

i am lookin to get a new exhuaast for my 88 xf falcon injected it already has extractors and i am putting it into a really good exhuast shop in about 1 - 2 weeks

i have 300 - 350 dollars to spend on it.

i am lookin for a nice loud chunky noise more like an 8 than a 4.

the engine wont be stock for long so i dont want to be buyin another one in about 2 months. i am expecting at least 180 RWHP out of the engine and box that is goin in.

what sizes and what muffler brands or sizes are the best?

also i want to put the AU XR8 mags oon the xf will they fit or what do i have to do to make them fit?

cheers
todd

Re: what system and mags?

2.5 mandrel bent would be sufficient for your power needs (both now and later)

you need the AU II XR8 wheels that are made for Pre-AU cars.
I have a set of my car, a lot of tyre places seem to have them.
REAL AU XR8 wheels won't fit ur car :)

Face it - a six will always sound like a six. There is no substitute for the burble of a V8

Unhappy straight 6 owner.....

Although this may be true. You can get extremely close to the sound of an eight with a straight six.

One example I can think of was a 250 precrossflow cortina, with pacemakers, holley 500, lumpy cam, 2 and 1/2 inch exhaust into a 3 inch dump pipe.

If I had not known what the engine was I would have thought it was an eight for sure.

nah i mean i want a chunky noise not a muffled together noise like what almost every 4 has more of a rumble but not as much of an 8

what muffler would you run in a 2.5 inch mandrel bent dystem and how much would this cost on average

Re: what system and mags?

i'd go a 2.5 inch mandrel system with a single straight through muffler

as for the wheels au xr8 wheels do fit, they make them aftermarket to suit the pre-AU offset
