Exhausts

Well i have finally bitten the bullet and decided on my exhaust system for I6 Fairmonte.

Ive now got pacemaker headers sitting on my bedroom floor, a 2.5" hiflow cat sitting next to it

and to be fabricated is a 2.5" mandrel bent piping, fitting a single lukey turbo muffler, and no resonator (for the time being) if drone is annoying, or system to loud a lukey resonator will be fitted.

So hopefully by the w/end my car will be pumping out about 185kw+ (remember has full cold air setup, higher comp ratio)

shall be neeeeece

You will have an anoying drone, but you do get used to it after a while... she wont be very quiet anymore, but for the extra power its worth it....

Best wishes

pacemakers are mild steel i think and have that blue outer paint, dont think its HPC coated, coz that paint scratches off very easily.

cat is mild steel also, 2.5" hiflow

headers cost me $395
cat cost me $80 2nd hand good as new
cat back is going to be $260 mild steel

Mate knows the owner, and all the boys go to him for work. Only getting mild steel as im not going to own car for ever and ever, and current system is still perfect, no holes, no rust, and its 8yrs old. So s/s is a waste of money

South,

If your interested I got a catback done on my EF at Quickfit in Balcatta for $180

It is 2.5" mild steel from cat back with a single lukey straight thru muffler. Got a stainless steel tip which put it up to $200 but I have been very happy with their work. I actually called them for a quote orginally at 9am and ended up having the system fitted by midday.

I also used the same people for my EA a couple of years ago and had the same system plus s/s genie headers done for $570.

I have referred a couple of people on to them and they have all been happy with their work.

thanks spinsky, but a straight thru is no good for the I6, you will loose power by putting that in. the systems needs pressure to expell the exhaust, to give you ompf, straight thru doesnt have a build up of pressure, and hence want get the ompf.

plus this guy is doing something else to the system for me, i cant say what tho.

thanks anyhow. Oh btw, neighbours bf has same car as me, but ghia, and hes got same system as you, and well not to be rude, but it sounds a bit yuck to my likings. Either way, this time next week, my system will be complete
yippy!!!!!!!!!

Yep no worrries, just thought you might be interested.

Don't know about your theory with the straight thru muffler but my car didn't suffer by having one fitted. Although I have never tried a turbo muffler on it.

thanks dude

had lots of conflicting theorys about the I6 exhaust

everyone telling me different things, other companies calling other places morons etc, and the 2 most honest have told me turbo muffler is best way to go, straight will not help much at all. The other companies have also quoted me prices through the roof for systems, so at the end of the day, all they want is my money, and not whats best for me..
