I am thinking of getting an exhaust put on my XR6T and am just wondering what my options are. Obviously APS have an exhaust but according to them you need a Unichip too with the exhaust.. Herrods are an option but is that a specialist turbo exhaust or just a one size fits all exhaust?
Any one done anything to their turbos in terms of exhaust??!
I have a Herrod stainless steel cat back exhaust for sale if you are interested. It was on my XR8 but my dad has one on his XR6T and it sounds tough and was good for around 12kw at the wheels. One size does fit all because the XR8 and GT share the same exhaust except for the tips. The APS exhaust is a bit overkill and may bring the boost up to a level where the computer may sense overboost and start cutting the power back.
Antony, the factory exhaust is quite good. Unless your going to change the cat and put a much bigger one, in like Brian, your better off just replacing the centre muffler with straight through pipes. Thats all i have done and you heard it on Sunday. If thats too loud you could get a couple of hot dogs put in the pipes. I got mine done at Fastfit in frankston, they do it for about $150. Pm me and i'll link you to a thread i did on it with photo's and everything.
Interesting Geea, my dad has an XR6T as well and he chopped the middle muffler but it didn't sound that great really. Maybe it is cause he grampa drives it when i am near it! Looks like the middle muffler is going..
Got a quote on an Herrod cat back - $1400 - hmmm maybe not
I've heard an XR6T with the centre muffler replaced with some straight pipe and I thought it sounded shit. Maybe my ears are un honed to a weel sounding turbo motor, but damn I just thought it sounded like a ricer on steroids.
1999 AU XR8

152.2RWKW (APS dyno)
Switchable Shift Kit, K&N panel filter, Lukey straight thru mufflers, momo gear and steer,
DBA slotted rotors/Bendix ultimate pads (front), Pioneer MP3 head unit and BA XR carpet mats.
depending if you want more power or more sound, there'd be plenty of things out there. you local mufflr hop can probably find something with more meat in the exhaust ote, but if its power you want, i'd take the APS exhaust
