Any one ever tried removing the rear resonator from an AU XR8 and just have the pipes going straight through ??. I wouldn't mind a bit more of a note, Ford just replaced the front mufflers under warranty so i wouldnt mind just trying the cut and shut method on the rear resonator??

I remember someone saying that they done this and it was way to loud. but as you have a standard exhaust i'm not sure maybe someone else can help you.

Ive done a small exhaust job on a AUII XR8 Ute. Cut the rear muffler off and piped it through. Sounds much nicer, and this ute was the 200kw model, which sounded OK to me in the first place. But it does sound better all the way from idle to redline, especially above 3500rpm. Best thing about it is that it only cost around $100, extra if you want to use the original dual tips or add a chrome tip on. :nuts:

sorry, got a bit bored and was going through old threads and noticed this one.
I removed the resonator from my XR8 and doe it sound sweet, even idling it just burbles away and now at 10000 clicks, I got the premium sound but never listen to it cause im listening to the throaty sound, if you havent already done it GO DO IT. It cost me $100 and they put the original rear chrome pipes back on, best money ever spent

I did this on both my Au XR8 and AU2 XR8 and its not that loud, just a nice sound when u floor it and a sweet burble when u back off. Put straight thru mufflers on also and u will never touch the stereo again!!

Same from me as the other guys have said - take it out! I did that on my car and it sounds sweet.

When I went to get a new straight thru muffler for my '99 V8 Ghia, I found that my rear resonator was already cut out. And here's me wanting it louder. Sounded OK then, heaps better now.
Little bit of a drone while cruising but that doesn't worry me. That's half the reason we get a V8 isn't it?

Do it do it do it do!

I'v got a EF XR8 with no mufflers and no resonator the only thing i'v got is twin cats, after that its pulled into a single 2 1/2 inch stm all the way to the back!

One thing to remember is to take your foot of the gas every time you see a cop!
