Today I got a 2.5" Cat back exhaust of my EL futura with the single muffler, sounds really good. Just wondering if anyone has heard of the brand "Zetti"? thats apparently what i have fitted, all i know is that it's australian made. What do you have?

I took mine to a dodgy exhaust place because they were cheap. Asked for a 2.5" Redback. Got a 2.5" Supercat. But eh, s**t sounds good and gave me the kind of power/economy boost I was expecting from a catback. No real complaints.

I'm umming and arring about whether I want to buy extractors and a high flow cat for mine... Would it make much more of an improvement as opposed to just a 2.5" catback with the startard headers and cat converter? (in terms of sound/performance)

Sound becomes much more crisp and deeper, will increase power mainly with just a tune

If you're looking for instant power gain, upgrade your intake, advance your timing, get a 3.45 LSD, etc. before you install extractors and a cat. If you're looking to do any serious mods like cam, turbo, etc. then extractors are essential for allowing the engine to breathe as much as it needs to.

They'll make the exhaust note much crisper though, and you'll gain a little economy.

Awesome, well i've decided I'll leave the the exhaust until I do any mods that warrant needing extractors and a cat.

my car is cammed and chipped, but i picked up the exractors for stuff all so it was worth it.
extractors will give you better power over standard aswell as make it sound nicer, the cat it more wankfactor then anything, but my factory car had colapsed so it was needed.

If your going to do an exhaust system may as well do it properly with a full system (extractors, cat and exhaust) you will gain 15-20rwkw. Makes the engine breath easier and have better fuel economy.

2.5" Lukey cat back with 2 mufflers. I like mine quiet hence the 2 mufflers. Personally, I think hi flow cat is not necessary, especially if you the rest is stock (intake/cam/etc), although extractors and cat back will allow the system to breathe better.

Have always used Lukey, so not sure how well other brands go.
