XR6 Exhaust Setup TwinSystem(tm)
I've been doing abit of research as to what is the ideal exhaust setup for the AU XR6.
To my suprise it seems a twin setup like the VCT is the way to go to extract the most power out of an exhaust.
Basically after the cat the exhuast is split into 2 pipes and it also incorporates an equaliser pipe (pipe with a blocked end).
I always thought that a 2 1/2inch cat back system was the best for the Inline 6's.
If a cat back 2 1/2inch exhaust returns a extra 8kw at the wheels
(tested on my EF) then i'm curious how much more the twin setup will yeild.
So contrasting the VCT to HP it could well be the exhaust thats making the power difference between 172kw and 164kw.
Seems Herrods are also going this twin system setup for the 6's.
