I was thinking about twin 2.25's. Twin 2.5's is way to big IMO.

i rang up a few plces to day it ranged from $250 to $450 just for a cat back system i wouldnt pay more than $300..
i rang up this palce called et exaust and they got realy cheAP pacemaker extractors for 350buks but they charge 450 for a cat back system which is rediculous
best thing for u to do is ring up the exaust places to get a firm price range from them

that size exhaust tubing creates a lot of loud droning in the exhaust, so i went twin 2 1/4" tubing to a large capacity muffler and its not loud @ 100kph. this is on my ea sedan. it has 2 1/2" after the muffler.

well i'm back from the Muffler place... the guy said unless your running a turbo don't worry about dual systems... due to the I6's loose too much back pressure... which mean that at the end of the day you'll loose performance...

your call but i'm not getting a dual system anymore... cause everyone i know says it is a bad idea...

A single 2.5" will easily take you over the legal db limit so not much point in going for bigger pipes. 2.5" is pretty much the optimal size for performance. If you want it louder or to have a different note play with the mufflers.

Gotta be fully sik bro??? get da mad zorst, why be like a VN driver, do your own thing, twins isnt good for I6, loud isnt good, usually drones, which sound even worse on a auto car. I saw a ute in QLD, sounded magic, only a 6, but dont know what he had. You pay for what you get.
