Ride: EB1 Fairmont Ghia T5 Wagon

Location: Seven Hills, Sydney
NSW, Australia

Hi, I have Pacemaker extractors, high flow cat, and a 2.5" redback with the main muffler and a rear resonator.

IMO it sounds great. Can hear it burbling away while dawdling at 60k and doesn't drone at highway speeds.

Most on here will not recommend hollowing out your CAT as it is illegal and bad for the environment. Bad Form!!!

The standard cat will actually flow good enough if you want to retain it to save a few $$$$$, but otherwise any 2.5" cat will be more than adequate.

The wagon really does not have the room at the back for a twin tip, and finding something to suit can be difficult, due the bend right at the bumper. It needs to be REALLY short.

You can check out my wagon build from the link in my sig.

Cheers
BenJ
