yeah, it looks and will sound like a wet s**t f@rt
get a 2.5 inch system single muffler mounted before the diff. cannons, are a good way of wasting money and making your car into a piece of s**t. the only thing they are good for is a bolt on noise maker for nannas mirage.

I agree, cannons are no good unless you want your car sounding like a pesky skyline or wrx.............or worse.
When it comes to mufflers/ exhausts it pays to do your research. I guess it all depends on what it is your trying to achieve and how much your willing to spend. On my 5.0 I have pacemaker heads, twin magnaflow cats merged into a single 3 inch system that hooks over and finishes at the diff running a redback muffler. Sounds good at idol with a nice roar when I plant the foot and its never bothered the boys in blue either. I am however thinking of swapping the red back muffler with a magnaflow muffler.

Cannons are gay and sound like s**t. I have extractors . Hotdog after the cat then muffler then I have it dumped at the diff cos my exhaust used to rattle on my diff. It sounds good

Hahahaha funniest s**t I've read this morning!! Cheers mate

To the OP. I suggest getting full exhaust system with 2.5" or 3" redback tips. Has a nice quiet rumble whilst idling, but like someone said, once you plant it, she f**k roars like a motherF**ker

can tell you that i haven't regretted splashing out on a 2.5" redback catback. has a low beefy growl when pushed but also has a meaty cruise note. idle it sounds mint. just a bit over street legal i think. 1 muffler and a resinator at the rear with a stainless oval tip ;) worked out great.

DO NOT GET A CANNON FOR A FORD OMG! If you want a cannon then go buy a Honda so that it goes as good as it sounds.
Also, everyone in this thread is saying just how awesome their 2.5" redback cat-backs are. I just got quoted $470 for one including the tips and installation. It has 2 mufflers but the guys was saying how the front muffler has a resonator inside and that the rear muffler has 2 resonators. Will this still sound the same way everyone is describing it? Nice on the idle and tough at WOT?

Ride: 5.0lt NF /351 ZD Fairlane

Location: Wattle Grove
NSW, Australia

My muffler guy told me the best thing about Fords is that cannons don't fit! as he was fitting one to a ricer stocky. the further fwd you mount the muffler the better the sound that is why they sound like "wet f@rt".
My NF 5.0 has Advance headers to 2.5" stainless sports cats then to single 3" with one small Redback muffler, I bought the system 2nd hand and got it fitted cost about a grand fitted incl. new cats, but it idles nice'n'throaty but when you plant it it really barks :twisted: and who cares about droning it's too loud to hear it ! :lol:

Thanks mate. Do Lukey's just sound a lot tougher? So buy just running the 2.5" Redback cat-back (I'll try see if they do Lukey) will I get that low rumble at cruise and that nice deep grunt when I give it some?
