Comparing Exhausts between sedan and ute

Gday guys, i just did another quick skim through the exhaust threads as im trying to gather as much info as possible on as many cat back systems and headers as possible, not only for my own benefit but for the benefit of others in the same positions as me, as i dont have the dollars to go doing 100 dyno runs to work out whats best, all i have to rely on is other peoples experiences.

In saying this im just wondering when people are comparing the difference in kw's and different sounds between systems would there be differences in having a ute or sedan(are they set up differently)??? Also alot of you are compaing boss 290's with 260's, would this also throw a spanner in the works in saying one may respond better to a certain system than another??

Hope im not confusing anyone

Re: Comparing Exhausts between sedan and ute

Good luck Fordy. I've been doing the same exercise and it's involved a LOT of phone calls. The tricky bit is trying to sort through what's BS and what's not. I'd be interested to see what everyone else has to say as well. Fordy, PM me if you want and I'd be happy fill you in on what I've found out so far.
