I have a stock ef falcon.

What would I have to get done to get a decent rumbling noise out of it at idle? (I owned an XD falcon years ago and miss the sound) Would I have to only get a sports exhaust etc?

Don't wanna spend too much though.

extractors exhaust and a nice lumpy cam will give you a sweet note.

i've got exhaust (with resenator removed) extractors and stg2 cam - for that, i couldn't see why you wouldn't be happy with the idle it has! i'm still trying to get it just right, but at the moment, its still pretty good - runs smooth enough, and has just enough there to let you know it aint quite stock... :wink:

LOL! the only mod i have done to my XR was remove the resonator. That and LPG = very very lumpy idle, sounds very V8sih if thats possible for a six :roll:

Even on Petty it still sound pretty good but the LPG idles lower so it sounds way better.

less timing, more fuel, big cam, and exhaust.

Cheapest way 2.5 catback Zorst with no resonater. Better way the above plus the cam & headers! That will cost though! :idea: P.S Gotta LUv XD's
