I want to get an Exhaust for my 1991 EB Fairmont.

Ive never bought an exhaust for any of my cars so Im pretty clueless.

I plan to get a 2.5 inch Redback exhaust. Mind you my current exhaust is stock standard.

I just want to know roughly how much louder this will make my car?
I want my car to be as loud as it can be whilst still at a legal state.

I dont want to blow my money if it aint gonna make too much of a difference.

Sezza,


In my opinion, and from what i've seen, redback's are a lil average on the quality and deep note... but that's just what I think. In the end, a 2.5inch will make it sound nice, but adding extractors will make it sound MINT!!!

I used to have an ED XR6, poly green manual, ran genies and a 2.5inch basic generic exhaust (no mandrel bends or high flow cats, etc). Make sure you don't keep the rear muffler and the b**ch will move like a pedifile at a HI 5 concert! :lol:

Mine was quite loud... I actually used to live round near you, dunno if you heard or saw it??? The note was legal, and an summer, on a hot night cruising, no radio was required!

In the mean time, if cash is a lil tight, go down to your local exhaust place and ask for a quote to remove your current rear muffler (if you still got it), shouldn't be more than $50-$100. that'll make it sound niiiiice!



but long story short :lol: You will have a better note with a larger exhaust (without the rear muffler) and coupled with a nice set of extractors, not only will it sound nice, it'll move too!

Funny that.

I got a quote from an exhaust place and I asked the guy there is extractors would make it sound louder and he told me it wouldnt.

So, you think I should remove the muffler and not have anything at all? Is that legal and roadworthy?

take the extractors and high flow cat out of that equation, and you will be looking around $250-300 at most places

Extractors give depth to a note.

As for removal of rear muffler, it's fine and legal. It's the one located in the rear wheel arch, right hand side.

In regards to $800, that's a mint sytem you'd be getting. Hi Flo and top class exhaust! Ther would only be a smallish difference whether it was mandrel bent or not. Same goes with a hi flow. It is after all, a street vehicle with a few mods, so don't get all wet thinking you're going to go to the moon with it! :D

id only recommend Mandrel bends as getting a 2.5" press bent system is more like getting a 2" exhaust.

with a mandrel bent system it would be better for him if he decides to do mods later like cam and head work.
