hey guys thinking about swapping my stock muffler with a resi. its a whole 2.5 inch system with extractors just and a resi right after the cat. i had the straight through muffler replaced back to the stock one cause my dad hated the noise. but that was a few years back. so what are your opinions on a straight through 2.5" with twin resinators??? if anyone has vids or pics of there setup that would be great!

cheers, jason

Sounds like a piece of f**k s**t.
My mate had that setup on an EF he bought, manual with a cam, and it just sounded so displeasing it wasnt funny.
You'd never have picked it for a Falcon six, it sounded like some hyped up 4 pot.

On my Eb Ghia I6, I run pacey extractors, 2.5" AC delco cat, 2.5" pipe to a straight thru muffler, then 2.5" over the diff to a redback resonator. I fit the resonator to get the noise down to a legal limit. The car has a stock cam, and while it doesn't sound too bad, it would sound much better with a cam in it.

Two resonators = NAY from me. Wouldn't sound all that good, without a muffler....

Cheers

Its even an insult to the "little engine that could" Massey Ferguson and its cousin John Deer.

Holden only territory.

could you re-type that so it makes sense?

are you wanting to add a resonator onto the existing system, or replace a muffler with a resonator that im guessing might be on the car?

if you want it semi-loud then a large straight thru muffler & a resonator will be plenty enough

if you want it to sound mega s**t & loud, then twin resonators will suffice

If you want a tinny, speedway, demolition derby sound, then a single resonator will do

If you want a smooth, quiet mellow sound then 2 straight thru mufflers & single resonator is the g.o.
