(Total 6 million cars sold), 3 million with problems, 2 million in car yards, 1 million satisfied government users. why am I not surprised.

My friend had an SS Ute built in early May. It's been sitting in a paddock since then. Still hasn't got it. Meantime Holden puts on a big party for the 6 millionth Holden. HELLO HOLDEN? Customers!!!!!

you know how some Holdens, like the SS and HSV's have a grouse sound sorta like a thumpa or a deep big block Chev noise. How would a XR8 sound with those Mufflers.. what do ya think

I know what you mean. Thing is what sort of mufflers are they using? Used to be Lukey everyone went for but the new Lukeys are just a name - division of Walker now.

The answer would be awesome, but I think the trick is more in pipe lengths and making the pulse timing work. I think that's why T series and XR sound so sweet now. In fact, it will take a lot for me to change my exhaust!

Geez Doc, are you talking about the few Holdens getting around with aftermarket exhausts or are you just taking the piss out of Holden and that piss poor exhaust note from factory. .;)

I've heard some sweet sounding XRs, but what DOC is referring to is a different type of sound - more like someone growling from the back of their throat rather than out load (figuratively speaking). It lacks that top end note most louder exhausts have.

I heard a GTS300 today with Genie mufflers and it was SWEET! Not quite the sound I think DOC is talking about though!

Mufflers? nah. You want the good old idea of twin system, hotdogs, and no balance pipe. Now I know what you mean......
