Mate you know what I'm gonna say don't ya..

FULL DUAL EXHAUST IS THE ONLY WAY!!! :D :thumbup:

Don't compromise. Get a good set of stainless coated headers (same size as mine, too big have adverse affects), and a decent set of mufflers, and throw away the rear resonators. Make it 2.5" dual all the way and you will be in aural heaven.

Yep i will certainly be going dual 2.5". The headers on my 200kw dont look to bad, they are not as pinched as the ones were on my Au.

I was thinking highflow cats with redback straight thru mufflers and no rear resonators.

do i go Stainless or plain old mild steel???

Hi XLR8,

If you plan on keeping the car for more than 2 or 3 years go for stainless... if not just go mild.

If you want something interesting that makes a lot of noise... think about twin tips - 1 either side. I know it requires the rear bar to get a peice cut out of it - but it looks AWESOME!!

:p :p

Ahemmmmmm
Whats wrong with single systems???? As far as i know single systems provide an even better scavenging effect due to the pulses being in a single pipe, straight from a custom performance exhaust joint that did my 3", looked good on the dyno also, gained heaps more power with a minimal loss in torque.. I can live with that.. Jeff Garland in belmont YOU R A WIZARD

I have to say I have resisted Herrod's exhaust because it is a single. I am a big fan of dual all the way.

Having said that, has anyone had experience doing X-pipes on an XR8? I know Zoom did an article on X-pipes on LS1, however I don't have a copy. I was going to do my own exhaust from the 220 cats back, full 2.5 or 2.25 dual stainless, mandrels, and X-pipe. I need some data to calculate the length of the X-section so I'll surf the net and maybe someone can advise if they have the article from Zoom.

I am going to use two mufflers and a resonator - can't stand droning on the highway!

On my EB i have extractors, high flow cats and a single 3 inch system no resinators. It doesn't drown but it roars when u give it some beans. I have many people comment on the beasty sound EVEN some of my holden driving mates! I think they say 3 inch is two big on a mainly stock EB XR but i am planning to modify. I will try to get a sample of it and post if possible.
