2.5" Cat back with Centre muffler and Hot dog at rear. High flow cat, though a good Ford stock cat still flows OK and they are 2.5" as well or score a Dunnydoor V8 Cat, they are flanged both ends and flow pretty well. Also fit a decent set of Extractors, brand is up to you, unless your have a lot of head work etc, they are going to be very similar in RwKw increase.

Don't expect masses of power increase or "Grunt" with this mod but it will improve the breathing of the engine and combined with some intake mods you will find some improvement.

Not sure about Vic Roads rule but don't think you guys are allowed any performance mods on P plates, it that is so make sure you get a heat shield or so to hide the extractors, also will save your Brake booster and throttle cables from the heat.

Think bout it, the exhaust is one factor, the exhale. What about the inhaling? Car can only exhale what it inhales.

Man my words are dumb today, but ya know what i mean


Pretty much a car with asthma.

I have a 2.5" Lukey exhaust with 2 mufflers. The note is really nice in my opinion and it's not loud to attract unwanted attention, but definitely louder than stock. I have heard Lukey and Redback with both 2 mufflers and single muffler/resonator set up and prefer the Lukey exhaust...then again I don't like my car too loud.

Extractors is up to you, most people have Pacemakers without any problems. Have heard good things with Hitech (spelling may be wrong) headers.

High flow catalytic converters isn't necessary, but if your stock one is rooted, might as well get a new one...high flow or standard but with 2.5" flanges.
