Subject line says it all really. Looking for something to make it sound a bit more like a real V8 and be able to handle some planned future enhancements (up to say 250kw).

Would particularly appreciate any before/after dyno info available.

TIA

I run the Remus cat back system, on my BA Pursuit and I had one on an AU XR8, and if your after a V8 Supercar sound then Id recommend it, but they're not cheap, I have tried others and they were too quiet, even Herrods one's are quiet.

I don't have any dyno figures, but in an Auto magazine here in NZ they took a brand new HSV to a guy who has a performance workshop (And he's a Ford nut). And they ran the car on the dyno before they put the Remus cat back and BMC filter on it and after they did the mods they had a 14.7kw gain at the wheels.

But a guy in our car club did a full exhaust system and he took the cats out, and he put his BA XR8 on the dyno and it had 231kw at the wheels and about 4 months later he put the cats back on and he still had 231kw, but he wasn't running a Remus. :D

Thaks FJ. I'm not really after something loud, just want it to sound a little more like it should! :-)

No worries mate, Do they have Rage or Coby in OZ??, they still give a nice note, and I have found no real difference in sound, between Mild or Stainless steel either, they say Stainless doesn't rust out like mild, which is true to a point, I have a 16yr old Nissan farm truck which has the factory mild steel exhaust and its covered in cow s**t and I haven't got a hole in the exhaust yet. and it never gets cleaned, :lol: :lol:
