XForce is a good brand. Have a few mates who have an XForce system on their cars and they do sound nice and gives the engine a distinct note.

I have the Lukey mid pipe and Redback tail pipe with round muffler on my wagon and it sounds great, nice throaty not without being loud or f@rt. As for the Redback being crap there construction and mandrel bends are the best Iv'e seen, much better than the Manta system I just bought for my XR6 sedan.

is your snorkle hooked up??
if so you should fit a ba xr6t snorkle as the stock one is restrictive.
waste of time putting on a air intake like you have only to have a small snorkle restricting it.

your quite wrong there mate, the quality of steel and mufflers they use are quite good quality especially for the dollar you pay for them, to give you an example, ive had a 2.5 inch redback exhaust, 9 years old now, and its still been good for 235rwkw.
heres what it sounds like http://youtu.be/lnvmi8gX4bw

hahahaha thats funny.ive got a set of hi-tech extractors and a hi flow cat which is gutted and just bought a 2 1/2inch cat back for my el xr6 and the red back was purchest second hand a day after fitting it a guy asked me if the car was an V8.so i dont know where you got your facts about the redback being crap and sounding dull.i mean my cars an auto and it doesnt drone at all.im happy i went with the red back.

:lol: to e-penis comparison.

I have a Lukey cat back with a high flow cat and Pacemaker 4480. Also have two mufflers. I must admit the Lukey only lasted 4 years before I had to replace it early this year with 1 hole in the muffler (due to hitting something) and a small hole in the rear tailpipe due to rust. The note however is nice, not droney (I don't think) and not loud. Sounds great at low revs with a bit more engine noise at high revs. It doesn't see high revs much anyway and with more highway travels, it is much quieter at 2000RPM then some cars I have been in with stupidly loud exhausts.

Anyways, back to your e-penis wars.
