city. surry hills / redfern area.

gotta get an exhaust to go with new headers. i have been reading up about 2.25 vs 2.5 inch, and i'm not sure what to go for. it seems 2.25 is the better option.
i dont want it loud until ya put the boot in to it. might have to get a cat and 2 mufflers i reckon.

any thoughts on that?

i have been quoted 440 for the exhaust, 350 for the cat. seems a bit steep, but i only been to one place so far..

help appreciated guys!

don't go a 2.25" exhaust, there would be no point in doing the mods you are doing. Go 2.5" system with good mufflers. If you want it quieter, dont use off the shelf lukey or redback systems. Get some magnaflow or hooker mufflers put in.
