Looking at removing the rear muffler on my 06 Bf Xr6 and replacing it with a straight through pipe.
Would i loose any performance with this mod?
Is it Illegal in NSW?
Would the car be too loud? (I want it loud but not excessively loud.)

Thanks in advanced :)

The car might be a bit loud if you do that. You could try removing the middle muffler.

found this regarding REAR muffler removal

Thanks alot for that reply.
By the sounds of it, removing the middle muffler gives it a more throaty sound, rear a more droning sound.
Any decent wreckers around sydney where i could find a full BA/BF exhaust system?

Removing the rear muffler with a straight pipe will give you a drone at 60-80km/hr, better replacing the rear muffler with a small hotdog....

Might just look at a cheap cat back or something, I don't want to do a dodgy job.

My EB has the middle muffler removed (2.5' from the rear muffler back) and it sounds pretty sweet with a deep sound (and no drone) so I can only imagine the BF would sound equally as cool.
As soon as you take out that rear muffler it is going to drone/sound crap. If you want loud just go for a 2.5' catback, at least it will still sound somewhat good. That being said, I don't actually like most of the catbacks I hear (let alone the cheapys), so many people think the louder the better and then end up with an artificial sounding, droney s**t.
