New 2.5" lukey exhaust w00t

Just got fitted this afternoon a bolt on, cat-back lukey super system. Single Ultra Flo muffler, all mandrel bent 2.5" pipe, and man does it sound awesome. When you're just idleing, it's almost stock, but just nudge the throttle and its got a spine tingling burble at low revs (<2500) then starts growling over 3500, just barely legal volume. Cost me $260 fitted at Aussie Exhausts (excellent service BTW) in Albion brissie.

Have to admit before i got it fitted I was a bit worried as a guy I know with a VY S ute gor a super system but sounds absolutely sh*t and gassy, and sounds like a clapped out lancer, but mine has a very meaty note, and should get even deeper once it breaks in, even 8ish. Sorry for the rant, I had to brag to some sympathetic ears, all my mates here are commowhore owners.

Big nada compared to my old 2.5", which was mandrel bent, 24" hotdog, single straight through muffer (no idea on brand, cam with it), rear resonator. Really need extractors and HF cat to notice anything.

Does the note change much once it has bed in? If so how long did it take?

Re: New 2.5" lukey exhaust w00t

sorry that its a bit off the topic but if i got a complete flow through exhaust (including extractors (probably pacemaker) and 2.5' luckey) would there be any droning? or would it be better if i have a resonator or muffler because i do quite a bit of highway driving, and the droning would become quite annoying after a while...

thats a nice price for ur exhaust man, good to see you like the sound...
