do you mean volume or how good it sounds?

I got the new lukey on my BA and it sounds friggen awsome and goes a little better too. Grumbly when your opening it up, but drops dead quiet at cruising speed. Perfect exhaust :)

I have a redback 2 muffler system in my AU wagon. Has a deeper note and a little louder than standard, without being overly loud. Cost was $380 installed although for a sedan you're looking around the $300 mark.

The EL I just wrecked had a Redback single muffler system in it, and it sounded good was much louder and definitely defect material, but still sounded good, and was reasonably quiet when cruising.

got no idea on brand of mine, probably just an in house exhaust made by an exhaust shop. not even all mandrel bends which i asked for, but damned if i don't love it. feels so much better, and it's really what you need after sitting on extractors and hi-flow cat for 6 months. just bolted up to the old mounting point. was cheap too, about 280 i think fitted. even threw my first double legger a few nights ago, so i guess my open diff is shot. sounds great when you double clutch 3rd to 2nd coming into a corner with a little throttle blip, the backing off crackle is amazing.

I'm running factory at present but I'm thinking I'll go the Redback 2 muffler setup, coz I don't want the car to be loud, just go better. Cops are a pain in the a** on cars as it is without gift wrapping a defect for them, lol.

I got a 2.5" catback system comprising of a 'Supercat' single muffler and a Redback straight-thru rear section. Cost $260 all up and makes the car feel more responsive and sound tough.

PSA, $280 off the self sport system. nice deep bubble & it does not drone like the other over rated systems.

the sound is different all together. you hear one redback you hear them all cause everyone has one. boring!!!

Mine is homemade, cost about $550. Thats extractors and all. Heres some pics. It isn't too loud or too quiet, and has improved the power. The extractors are the Pacemaker 4480's. The CAT is a modified BMW unit. I made the cones for the CAT out of s/steel.
