hey all,
i have a 2001 series 2 au xr6 non vct and had an exhaust but it's all burnt out now and sounds like S***.
so,
i have a question,
what would be a better all round choice,
Redbacks 2.5" or a custom made exhaust from Exhaust Brothers?
they are both the same price $350. or if anyone knows somewhere else to get a exhaust done cheaper or better quality for it and could let me know would be great!
I am located in Geelong but willing to travel if its a great sounding exhaust

Performance wise there shouldn't be a difference - they should both be fine - it'll come down to the sound which is something you can only assess by listening to the type/s of exhaust you're considering getting.

yeah, i've heard the redbacks down here and they don't seem to be that much louder than standard to be honest. especially at ide, but i've never heard a custom exhaust from Exhaust Bro's either so it seems to be a choice on whats available on the day or a random selection at this stage.

Keep in mind Redback comes with three options for the rear section that go from loudest to quietest (and cheapest to dearest):
1. Straight pipe.
2. Pipe + Hotdog.
3. Pipe + muffler.

I don't know what type of muffler that would be tho - presumably a perforated pipe thru body type but I don't know for certain.

The custom place will be able to do pretty much same as any of those options.
