The lukey system on Dave's (Thanatos') car sounds incredible, not sure on the exact specifics though. From memory, it has lukey extractors, 2.5inch cat back with a single straight through muffler, but as I said, I'm not certain...

Re: 2.5'' Redback Exhaust System for I6

my pacemaker and reback exhaust on my EL sounds wicked.

Make sure you get the straight thru muffler, not the offset one

the offset one drones hardcore (well it did on the EA)

My EB Gli has a 2.5 inch Redback system on it, it doesn't drone at all, but its not that loud either. The Lukey system on my XR6 on the other hand....... nice and loud and meaty.

If i was doing it again Id go for a Lukey. I like mine but it hangs waaaaay too low under the car.

Ripping everything out of the cat will do nothing but create an extra resonator.

I have a Redback with two straight through mufflers.
Very nice sound and as quiet as you want it to be.
