Exhaust systems

hey all. I would like some opinions on exhaust systems, am thinking of upgrading mine. The car is a falcon with mild 351 c, and originally i was running stock manifolds, running into stock single 2 in. pipe, then a stock muffler. This made the car almost as quite as your average six. I replaced this exhaust with a twin system (stolen from my fairlane), and now it sounds like it has no exhaust at all. its so bad all the mirrors vibrate, and it feels like the cars vibrating apart. Now this has me confused, because on the fairlane it was ok. a bit of rumble here and there, but generally pretty quite. The annoying thing is there is virtually nil performance difference between the two systems.

So now im considering a full upgrade, extractors, twin 2.5 in pipe, and some industrial strength mufflers. Anyone got suggestions for mufflers and headers?

Being in Melbourne you can't go past Herrod Motorsport for exhausts. You could also try Mick Webb at SVO in Melbourne as well.
