GTP exhaust on a standard XR8 ?

Any comments on if it's worth replacing a standard BA XR8 exhaust with one from a GTP ?

Looking for a bit more noise...

Say no more then :) Thanks.

The GTP piccy shows dual pipes between the 2 mufflers, I thought the XR8 had a single, but I'm 600ks away from my XR8 at the moment and couldn't double check...

Re: GTP exhaust on a standard XR8 ?

Yes, they are the same Shanes..
An easy and cheap way to get more noise is to remove the rear muffler and have an exhaust place make a nice set of twin pipes out the back. No gain in performance, but it will give you more noise. Cost would be between $100 and $200.

Personally I would get a full or cats back system if funds permit. There are many threads on here about BA XR8/GT exhaust systems if you do a search.

l wouldn't just cut the rear muffler out and have straight pipes as you will lose performance as you will lose back pressure just get them to put a couple of resenators and this will give you a good note. l had this done before l got the quad pipes.
