Just coz your blasting everyone doesnt mean your going faster or going to have a great note lol.. I know we all fans of our blue oval cars here but there is SOOOOOOOO many s**t sounding 6cyl fords getting around that sound like magnas without mufflers.. pml

I would rec. getting 1 muff 1 res n if not happy remove the res at risk of drone/noise..

Considering like 90% of the fords/holdens/riceys i see around have a loud exhaust ive gone for tame yet great note; lets get over the stupid sound over function rubbish i say, good exhaust note at idle n when the foots in is all you need!

PS: if you start your car n people walk away, jump, run, cry, laugh, choke = your too loud if you ask me!

hi guys
today i took the hotdog off my redback system its much better now.
its only slightly louder at idle it has a nice note under load and i dont think its to loud..it sounds good i took it on the freeway this afternoon and it doesnt drone at 110 kph ...
keeping in mind its a five speed manual..
as ive noticed autos seem to drone under load with loud exaust systems more then manuals do.... :D :D :D

What's the difference between a hot dog and a resonator. I was always under the impression that they were ecxactly the same thing.
