Hey guys.been looking at some sports exhausts on ebay and came across these 2. Im after that deep throaty note, which ive heard lukey is known for but nowhere does it say that the lukey system is mandrel bent. Does this matter? Thanks.

I'd go lukey, had on on my ef and loved the sound, who cares how it looks just find a nice tip and you should be sweet

I have the Lukey one and have now for 12 months. It does sound mean but can take some effort to get the tail pipe to align central and I had heard others who have had the same issue. Dont know about the Redback one though.
Lukey is good value for money though, someone else would have to comment on the redback one

That black paint burns off eventually. I loved my mandrel bent tuff car parts exhaust on my manual el. On the auto sounded like a long wet f@rt

If the Lukey one is actually press bent, go with the tuff parts system

I have that exact redback 2.5 inch cat back system on my manual ef XR6,with a hot dog muffler/resonator at rear.Exhaust fitter had no issues lining it all up,it has a nice deep sound with no drone.Make sure you fit a rear muffler/resonator as well unless you want it to drone loudly( I know this as I did not initially fit a rear muffler against exhaust fitter's advice).
