~$600-650 would be my guess mate.

Resinators are worth about $80

Paying the difference between standard pacies and comps will all depend on where you want power and on the amount of mods you'll be doing later.

If you plan on cam work, buy the pacis.


By the way Gaz, you have a PM ;)

Pfffffff! If you pay more than $500 fitted you are getting ripped off! I got mine for $450 fitted!
Resinators are about $50.00 starting price. Depends what kind - hotdogs are cheaper than the muffler style ones.

Keep in mind that we're in Perth here. Everything costs more! All i know is that I paid $950 for PH4480s, walker hi flow cat and 2.5" mandrel bent lukey system with 1 muffler. Then I forked out another $80 for a stainless steel tip.

Keep in mind that I'm in Tassie so prices should be the same as they have to air freight everything in!

Actually, now that I start thinking about it.

You're probably right. $450 for the pacies, $200 for cat, $300 for zorst and fitting. Yeah, thats about right.

I got quoted $80 for a resonator, not that I needed/wanted it.

just go with one muffler for starters, and if u decide its to loud, add the rear resinator later...

i have only one muffler on mine, and have never had any problems, its only loud when u put the boot into it...


thats pretty much wat i was gonna go for, something not too excessive wen ur just crusing along, just a deep note and a little louder, but gives a good roar wen u put ur foot down for ur own satisfaction!
does ur setup include extractors or not??

also if decided that the single muffler is too loud, wat are u lookin at cost wise to add a resonator later on?


nah i dont have extractors yet... i got quoted $60 for a resinator if i wanted one added on later... on highway cruising it is not excessive at all, u can barely hear it if u have the radio/stereo goin... at 100-110km/h it just purrs.... only noisy over about 2200rpm....

my car has pacey 4480's a lukey 2.5" zorst, high flow cat, and one single straight through muffler, i got pulled over by the cops for a random breath test, and the cop who tested me said my exhaust sounded really good..hahahaha, i think as long as it doesnt shatter windows or blow ear drums as u go past, cops dont give a s**t really
