Exhausts

I need some suggestions on a good exhaust system I can put on my AU XR8. I'm not sure what's on it at the mo, all I know is it has no mufflers. I wanna see what it will sound like after the mods are done, but if I decide to get the exhaust done.. then I want to know what are some good ones out there.

Thanks.

Re: Exhausts

Not sure on exhaust systems but i know Magnaflow mufflers sound great on XR8's, also make sure you get a stainless system they sound much better than mild steel.

Re: Exhausts

Source out a twin system with an X-pipe and magna-flo mufflers ..

Good system with enough volume for a nice and healthy Mickie Webb enhanced 5.0l

Re: Exhausts

If you don't have the money do a 2.5" mandrel bent system with either mild or stainless steel (depending on your needs). If you are planning to do big mods within the next few months, then a 3" would be better or even a twin system otherwise you will be losing power.
