xr8 ute exhaust

just trying to price an exhaust, i was looking on the cappa site and they have a cat back twin 2.5" into 3" system for $700. but because its cat back it will only sound better it wont make the car go any better or will it? what i really want is a twin 2.5" system all the way (cappa have one in stainless steel but its $1600) oes anybody know were i could get one in mild steel and what i would be looking at paying?

also is it worth the extra money to get stainless steel, because from what i understand it only makes it sound better. and how much better would it sound?

sorry for all the questions i dont know much about exhausts

btw heres capas price list:

Re: xr8 ute exhaust

You will pick up a few kws with a cat back system but the big gains are from extractors and high flow cats.

Stainless is heaps better over mild steel. It will not only last a lot longer but will give a deeper sound.

Re: xr8 ute exhaust

Hi guys, was interested reading all the "Gen" on exhausts, Done a fair bit of investigating myself!!! seems a good system is Pacemaker, or De Filipo, Headers 2.5in
into hi flow cats & Manta SS mandrel bent 2.5 Cats back full system, dyno: 6kw gain in rear wheels in a BA xr8 8000 kms sedan, fitted with a BMC air filter in the Stock Air Box... The car went Bloody Quick, & sounded absolutely superb, with no hint of that Terrible Bark or Cackle on over run or Straight revving, Alternatively A Rhemus Rear Muffler was also fitted & Tested, slightly deeper quieter note & same KW's (6, at rear wheels) Would be intewrested to hear any other comments. Understand Manta is a WA Manufacturer, I would like to hear if anyone has more info on them?
