Yea i dont see why note.
I have been told for the six's that taking the last muffler out doesnt do much but i remember we had a BA XR8 Ute in at work 5-speed manual and all it had was were the exhaust goes over the diff it had the two little hot dogs there removed and the rear muffler removed as well and had a single 3" section put in half way up the diff and the rest of the way out and boy did it sound good for a pretty much stock exhaust
