man get a redback! lukey is s**t.
if you insist on getting lukey, drive it REALLY easy for the first 150-200km, or the cheap heap of s**t will fall to pieces.

i went to everlast and they made me up a 2.5" custom exhaust with a lukey muffler, and a tip for $300. sounds good and has that drone sound at about 1300-1400rpm, so i presume yours would be somewhat the same.

How do the lukey mufflers compare to redback?
Everyone who has a redback single muffler setup seems to say its very loud, whereas people who have a single lukey muffler say how the sound is perfect and not too loud.
Im still not sure hether i want a rear resonator or a straight through rear section.

sounds like someone had a bad experience and holds a grudge, i had a redback fitted to my xf years ago to have it rattle the baffle out in about a week, so what , back to the shop another new muffler, thats what a warranty is all about, i've had a lukey do the same on a gemini before that, still was replaced on warranty, and a friend had the same thing happen with a mercury, but once again was replaced on warranty, you can't call one a piece of s**t over the others, everyone has thier own preference and for me mercury sound the best.
