BA XR6 Exhaust help needed
Hi all - im ordering a Herrods exhaust on Monday for my BA XR6 but still havnt made up my mind which to get.
1) cat-back mild steel
2) cat-back staineless
3) full system
im saving for a house at the moment (in Sydney) so moneys a little tight but with the good ole tax return i just couldnt resist. Herrods have assured me that if i go cat-back now, then the only differnce between a full system is a hi-flow cat and extracters, which can be purchased at any time in the future (when funds permit). So really the only decision i need help with is cat-back mild or cat-back stainless???
i plan to keep the car for a fair while, and am not all that concerned about the power, more about the noise (or lack of it!)
- stainless costs 50% more than mild system ($500 compared to $750), and some (unreliable sources) have suggested that stainless gives a better (quote: "sweeter") sound. is this true?, and is there any sort of weight difference??
- sweetest thing about all this is i get to keep my warranty as its fitted by ford!
any help would be appreciated!
