i was talking to dyno steave when i was enquiring about an exhust, mandrel bent does nothing much and isnt worth it, stainless steel, if u have ever taped stainless steel u get a pitchy sound, which means ur exhust will sound not as good, and stainless is really only for show cars.

i would like to know what is on the v6 commodore exhust which makes them sound better then any au.?


Your on some serious crack arent you?

Yeah i'm happy with my redback exhasut. Though i have two mufflers, and wanna get rid of one. Will this make it a tad too loud or is a rear resonator neccessary?
