Ride: FG MkII Xr6t Ute

Location: Brisbane
QLD, Australia

I'm assuming its more expensive cause the ute is longer/being a ba?

I paid $130 plus postage for my muffler, and $180 for a s**t branded 2.5in mandrel bent system (which i cut the muffler out of and replaced with my other one) for my el.

I suppose if getting fitted and tips welded on you might be looking at a bit more.

length rarely come's into it. it how many bends in an exhaust that usually determines price. mines a sedan and i just found the reciept i paid $550 for my catback system, and was quoted up to $800 by others

holy s**t! It must be BA's then!

I think the most i got quoted to get my exhaust fitted was $500, with prices as low as $250/300, but as i said, this was for an e series.

A ford 6 will always sound pooey with an exhaust unless you have a decent sized cam, and some more comp to make it pop.
Maybe when you hear one you like go and have a chat to the owner because i have never heard a 4.0 i liked the sound of :D including my own


Ahhh so thats what makes them pop! Saw an XF that was going nuts with the popping lol sounded good. Whats higher comp do for ur car? And how do u get it?

BA's might have a more complicated bend over the diff or take longer to install due to the IRS rear end.

That's to do with the density of the cold air, if I am not mistaken.
