Exhaust thoughts

I know this has been covered a few times but I want to hear the opinions of I6 owners of what exhaust setup is going to give the best sound. Which particular brand of headers etc. Im not too fussed about the performance increase(although this is nice) I just want the ole six to rumble as much as possible. sort of a burble at idle and a nice full sound as the throttle opens. Does this make sense?? if any one can include sound clips of their systems that would be great too

Re: Exhaust thoughts

If you want the best sounding setup then lukey is probably the way to go.
I'd say pacemaker headers as well or you could get the JMM race series.
If you want to hear sounds then on the lukey webpage i'm sure they have all the audio files for their exhausts
Here is the sounds for an EA
http://www.lukey.com.au/default.asp?...SOUND&catid=43

Eh that URL doesnt work.
Just click the link at the top left

Re: Exhaust thoughts

If all you want is sound, go a lukey.
If you want some sound and More go, get a Redback.

No offence, Kerry, but what you been smokin', mate???


You're obviously talking about cat-back (coz redback doesn't make extractors. lol), but the piping is the same, and the mufflers don't make any difference to performance (provided they are both straight though in design).

The only difference is that the redback muffler is physically bigger externally, so it reduces the volume a tiny bit more...


For those who haven't heard it already, here's my car with Lukey extractors, 2.5" piping and a single Redback muffler...

Re: Exhaust thoughts

Oh I should just add that for all those people that are apparantly downloading the above sound clip to use as their own...

NOBODY IS GONNA BELIEVE THAT THE ABOVE SOUND CLIP IS A HONDA CIVIC, NISSAN EXA, OR ANY OTHER 4CYL POS.

I've had reports from three different people, that their mates had a copy of the same sound claiming it to be something else. hahaha


Cheers,
Dave

Re: Exhaust thoughts

No offence taken dave.
I was talking about the cat back.

The system i put on the car after the one i sold you was a lukey, it was just loud and didnt make any difference to the old system.
I got rid of that and put in the Redback and the differance was great.
It was quieter at idle, but had a nice note, and sounded nice when you booted it.

Lukey isnt what it used to be years ago.
they are owned by Walker and all the mufler cans are imported from the US, thenthe ends welded on here.

Redback is 100% Aussie made.

Re: Exhaust thoughts

Hmmm, it's interesting that you noticed a difference...

I went from lukey to redback and didn't notice ANY difference in performance... but it went a bit quieter... (still too bloody loud though. lol)


Maybe there was a flaw in the muffler you got or something??


A while ago a mate of mine got a muffler (different brand altogether) that had a problem with the mesh stuff inside, and it meant that it reduced the diameter internally to about 2"... just a thought???



Cheers,
Dave

Re: Exhaust thoughts

How many mufflers are you running Dave?

To be honest i prefered the system i sold you to the Lukey.

My Redback hes a center and rear straight through muflers.
