hi, i've got a 2.5" single exhuast on my au 5ltr auto, is it worth taking the rear muffler off and putting in a straight through pipe. would it drown heaps?? and would it be too loud.

When I bought my XR8 I had to get it blueslipped as It had ACT rego and I was changing it to NSW.
They reckon it was too loud (it was), so I had to get it quietened. Another straight through made SFA, but thats what they wanted put on there.

Windows up at 110ks does it drone in the cabin? I have 2 straight through lukey's but wouldn't mind it a touch louder...
