exhaust system

I went looking at lukey exhaust system today i seen a few i like but not willing to spend a great deal of money as of i got to get the car service and need back tyres.
I want something with abit of a noise i was thinking of getting a lukey tail pipe would that make abit of a noise. I also spoke to mate he said that i should get a lukey muffler box i think it is the box that the tail pipe come out of it anyway he said that would be enough to get a noise or have both the muffler box and a lukey tail pipe. Just need something for a bit of noise for the time being.

would do u guys thinks

Re: exhaust system

If you're mainly after noise, just get a 2.5" cat-back exhaust with one muffler, Lukey, Redback, whatever. The end tip makes no difference. You'd be looking at anywhere from $260-330 fitted. Oh, mandrel bent is the way to go as well

Re: exhaust system

Are you talking about a cannon muffler?? If so, big no no for your car, leave that for the imports. As xrated said, just get a 2.5 inch cat back :)

Don't even bother until you have the money for the cat-back system.

Re: exhaust system

Has anyone noticed a diffrence going from an off the shelf press bent 2.5" system to a true mandrel bent 2.5" system?

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: exhaust system

Well i just bought the Redback 2.5" cat back and fitted it myself, easy as pie. Love the sound and really picks up a lot more, so i will be going ahead with the pacemaker extractors as well.

Re: exhaust system

VBtruk ive done the same thing as you at first i had the catback redback exhaust 2.5 which wasnt too bad but once i got the pacemakers on them its alot better. Sounds louder,very nice note and noticed a difference in power. Overall im pretty happy with it.
