i have spoken to 2 different places and i have 2 different opinions...
im looking at either removing, or replacing the center muffler with resonators.

1st guy said to use resonators, because straight pipes will be too loud.

2nd guy said to use straight pipes as it wouldnt be loud enough if i fitted resonators.

so now i cant make up my mind...

i want something that will sound good, and not too loud or droney...
i was wondering if i could come out and possibly meet someone who has done it and hear it in the flesh, im in out liverpool way, id be willing to go out for a drive to hear what you have...

thanks

I love my set up but it's a bit loud.
I've gone a 3 inch with a free flowing muffler and a resonator out back,i'm thinking of another muffler at the back to quiet it a bit ionstead of the resonator..
Sixes will allways be droning along unless you split the tail pipe and get some harmony out back.

i wasnt really looking at doing the whole catback if i didnt have to, as the standard system still supports a fair amount of power...

hey vince... how about my exhaust?? its not too loud but is efinatly noticable... keeps the stock exhaust right through to the rear tyre's.. where it splits into a quad system.. so looks great aswell... 8-) $150 second hand on ebay.. and got mates rate's of $50 to paint/spot weld and install it... :wink:

warning though... i still have my centre muffler... of which im sure you need atleast one.... my XRT achieve's it's loudness with just the rear muffler missing.. -Both the centre and rear muffler removed might be a bit loud for your liking...
