Hey ive got a 2.5" lukey catbak system with 2 mufflers...

Excellent note... but not LOUD enough for me.

Ive heard that people drill holes in their muffler, etc and it makes it louder. can this be done? (as a temp fix until i replace rear muffler with straighthru piping).

don't6 go drilling intop your mufflers, instead have one of them removed and try with only one muffler! Or replace the second muffler with something less restrictive like a hot dog

yeah, deal with it till you can drop a muffler. i have only one and it is sweet.

and if you only just got it, it will take a couple of weeks to really open up. I was disappointed with mine at first, but now it is great!! :D

Depends on what muffler that one muffler is! And what cat converter you run.

Yeah I got my Lukey 2.5 about 3 months ago now.

I also had the same concerns about the db limit and I have been through many of booze buses and I have never been in any trouble, actually one cop said it sounded good hahaha.

I only have the centre sports muffler in and its a cat back system, and its has a very sweet note when driving around the city holding the revs at about 1200rpm, real 5 ltr ish.

Yet to get extractors but I think it will be too loud.

SOUNDS EXCELLENT! :twisted:
