Check the site sponsors on the forums here, XFORCE has prices up.
But I'm pretty sure they're about $600. This will also save you in the future, if you decide to go chasing power. You won't need to upgrade at a later date.

ive got an xforce 2.5' mild steel. couldn't be happier with it, sounds great for a NA 6. theirs no drone, and even with the window down its not much louder then stock when cruising.

heres a switch... i ended up getting a 2.5 inch cat back Hurricane. I was assured by the exhaust mob that it has a nice note , aggressive rasp when giving it the berries :twisted: , and can hardly hear it when cruising :D (no drone).
I will fit it to the car this weekend and see how it goes.

go the dual 2.25" they sound much better and will flow more if you are wanting more power later on.

You don't want rasping, it sounds horrible. You want a mild growl, and then when you boot it, it roars its tits off. In the end, it's up to you :)

thats exactly what my redback is like.. i can sit at the lights and have no exhaust note at all..and cruise with a mild note but once u open it up it has a real bark behind it...ive had 4 people ask if it was an 8 lol...very impressive brand redback. 2'5 Redback 1 muffler no resinator.

having a quiet note untill u open it up is good because of police dont look at you aswell..

Well, fitted the pipe this morning, and am very happy with the result (i took photos of the old next to the new and will post later) straight away when you start the car is sort of sounds like an 8, but ..not. hard to explain but i can highly recommend Liverpool Exhaust. The system was exactly as sold to me, and that is a nice bass at idle, a grumble when driving and a rasp when giving it the berries... and no drone when cruising.. very happy with the result :D :D

See the difference in size (and might i add weight) in the two pipes.
The missus just took the car down the shops and i couldn't help but go out the front and hear the sound the car made.. once again, i am very happy with the hurricane exhaust.... now to save up for headers and hi flo cat
