confused exhaust system xf falcon

HI,

I am trying to decide what to do with my xf falcon exhaust system and was wondering what it would sound like with a canister exhaust, kinda like what you see on skylines. or would it sound shit with such a large motor?

Thanx,

Re: exhaust system xf falcon

Don't bother with the type of "Cannonball" style exhausts that you see on imports. They were designed for imports and thats were they should stay. As BLO GMH said get a decent set of extractors, 2.25" Exhaust if the motor is stock, 2.5" if its modified. Personally I'm a fan of the lukey mufflers, a nice grumble down low but up high a screaming growl that will turn heads. Have a look around wrecking yards for a nice cheap set of extractors (I picked up my genies for $66). Good luck...

Re: exhaust system xf falcon

i personaly think that a majority of cannonball or jap style mufflers look shithouse on falcons and would point and laugh if i saw one besides they dont rev anyway, not that you can fit them to an e series

As above would be your best bet

Re: exhaust system xf falcon

so canister mufflers are designed for higher revving cars?
