You can get similar performance from a standard XR8 or Turbo exhaust!

couldnt find a second hand xr for under 350
not after more power just have holes in the exist one .
i want a better sound and stainless isnt stuffed in 6 months of use
and the price was cheaper than i could get mild so :)
put a lukey air filter in today and it goes heaps better maily cause the other one was shagged and choked full of sydney dust from the previous owner,
dirtiest filter i have ever seen and the car had just been serviced.
i am dreading what the sparkplugs wll look like
this is why i trust no company .
mechanics are good for rego checks imo everything else i do or learn to do myself unless i cant do it myself or afford the tooling vs getting them to do it

To get that " Rumble ", comes from aftermarket camshafts.....like a 108*-110* LSA.

I have a Manta 2.5" quad cat back on my and it has a slight rumble, but it is nothing compared to my mates 351 XC. If your after what I'm after which is the ground shaking rumble than an exhaust wont do it(from what I've been told).

not a chace in high hell you will get one of these modulars to sound like a big lumpy 351.
