Location: Balwyn
VIC, Australia

I got a BF XR6 and i wanna amp up the noise a fair bit, without spending 1k on a full exhaust. Im not after power, just a meaner sound.

Thinking about removing the rear muffler and replacing it with a straight pipe, is this gonna make it sound a fair bit better? also because its a BF is that gonna muck up the second O2 sensor and cause my "malfunction indicator light" to flick on?

thoughts anyone?

Cheers

just the back end of the exhaust should be fine and not efffect the oxy sensors.

if you wanted a meaner sound shoulda got a V8. 8-)

Would be nice if there was an off the shelf sports system for the BA Egas.....

It has to be custom made... Which obviously adds to the price....
