Yet another BA XR8 exhaust sound

My BAXR8 has been fitted with a RAGE system from NZ (South Island somewhere). The whole thing is bolt on from the cats back with everything (bolts etc etc) supplied. Starts off with a 2 into 1 (3 inch) collector through a small muffler, over the diff and into a slightly larger muffler, then out the back. 3 inch all the way... sounds awsome on song, but you cant hear it in 5th gear at 100kms - so no drone when travelling. costs NZ$850 fitted... got a couple of quick sound files here...

Computer in boot, boot open, rev:

Computer in boot, boot closed, 1st, 2nd (5500+ RPM):

Im trying to get a remote mike to tape to the back of the bumper, insted of in the boot... Let me know if anyone wants to hear any other 'states'... I can also get some pics..

wow, sounds awesome!! Became the proud new owner of a BA XR8 about 6 weeks ago...............what a motor vehicle. I never knew that I could have a love affair with a car but I am. Have put 4300k's on the clock already and don't look like slowing down.

Re: Yet another BA XR8 exhaust sound

Sounds very nice, simular to the exhaust that got done on BS888's XT infact. Teza mate, upload those sound files ASAP! Very keen to hear :D

Re: Yet another BA XR8 exhaust sound

Well here is my current setup. It is a little rougher than the ones posted here. Quality of file isnt as good either. Won't suit everyone's cup of tea but its what I was after :o)

True dual 2.5 inch system ALL the way. No balance pipe, no merged sections.

Probably a little bit too bighty...I may try putting on a balancer at the front section. The stock system has a very neat balancer so I might try putting that on.
