Gday Guys,

Remember my exhaust mod concept for loudness control? *see below*
That thread was 1 whole year ago!
And I finally completed it a few days ago but with a hotdog and added it to my existing 2.5" system...and it sounds unreal!

The Concept (January '06)

Image

As you can see I wanted the rear section to be a simple bolt on-bolt off system using gaskets. This came about because I do long trips every now and then (eg. Sydney and back) where loud noise for hours on end is annoying, but for my day to day cruising wanted the serious rumble i knew my car had to come alive. And the reso certianaly wasn't giving me "tha noize"!.

The Result (January '07)

The Old System (For long trips)
This was my old rear section which had a 2.5" pipe, Resonator muffler, and phat XR Chrome tip. It's now complete with a 2-bolt gasket. And will be used for long trips.

Image

The New System (Fat Rumbler for cruisin')
This is the louder system complete with 2.5" pipe, Hotdog muffler, and phat Twin Chrome dump pipe tip.

Image

Image

Image

As you can see I made the gasket join central so it wasn't so obvious and ugly through the wheel arch.

Image

It took so long to get around to doing this... but boy...was it worth it!

I got it all done for $210 down at Midas on Warragul Rd, SE Melb. The bloke who did it was a champ. even let me hold the system to where i wanted it to sit, while he welded the brackets etc.

And I tell ya, with my wade cam, extractors, 2.5" straight thru system and hi-flo cat it sounds unreal! I'm still stoked about it! :D
The rumble definately adds to my Fatt plates now ...sounds like a beast!!!

cheers, Matt

damn those tips look good!

most full 2.5" sports systems have that rear resonator :)

i have a straight pipe on mine and it is fine for long trips as the noise is loud but comfy
plus with wind and radio noise

i went the hotdog to avoid unnecessary police Db issues, it's pretty loud even WITH the hotdog muffler.

All my old EF GLi had was a centre muffler and the cat the rest was 2.5" mandrel bent pipe.

Truly sounded like a V8. It was tough as.

My EF XR6 has the same but it also has a hotdog on it somewhere and it doesn't sound as tough as my old GLi.

Great idea but i can only see the point to changing between exhausts if its "mild to wild". This is basically mild & less mild

Each to their own doof. I've got my reasons and its got plenty of noise for me. Any louder would just be annoying and good cop bait. Far from mild & less mild though.
