s**t, lots of questions from me recently :D

in the next few weeks i will be getting an exhaust/extractors fitted.

my question is. i am worried about how loud its gonna be, i want a loud meaty note, but i dont want it to be excessive, dont wanna attract attention from cops/parents who think im a knob spending money on car :wink:

so, should i go pacy comps/2.5" lukey exhaust with 1 muffler?
or the same as above, with the rear resinator?

would extractors, 2.5" and 1 muffler be well under the legal limit??

anyone in perth wanna show me how loud extractors/2.5" exhaust with 1 muffler is? 8-)

also, while im here.. is the extra money of the pacy comps worth it? im not goin speed deamon here just want a nice little gain. how much extra $$ are the comp headers over the standard ones? and are they worth the extra?

I'm in Perth and I'll be glad to show you mine, but it'll be a bit quieter than mine cause of cam and headwork.

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...

where abouts are you located smackdown?

cant be tomorrow, cars gettin lowered :D

just wanna keep the happy circle going with family ;)

grandparents are often around my car and parents may drive it too..

main concern is that it isnt gonna be able to be picked on by cops and i can come into a driveway late and night without waking people up.

I live in Wembley Downs (City Beach area).

Mine's louder than what yours would be because of the cam opening up but I'd be glad to help you out anyway.

Gimme a PM for my phone number.

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?

cheers remi! ill shoot you a pm!

same as above, whats a resinator worth?

i dont wanna wake parents up when gettin home late, cause thatll have me in bad books, especially when bro gets up at like 4:30am to goto work!

also, no one has commented yet..

Differences between normal pacy's and pacy comps? is the difference worth the price jump?
