Location: Sydney
NSW, Australia

Car already has Genie extractors with full twin 2.5 inch exhaust all the way through. It has 2 massive mufflers on either side of the car (not sure on the brand) it sounds ok when you poke it, but on idle its really quiet.

I’d like to change the mufflers to something with a bit of a 'rasp' like the old school v8's, and have it be a little louder on idle, but I don’t want any drone!

Any suggestions?

Two stainless Lukey Ultraflow mufflers will fix that.

I have a stainless Magnaflow on my ute and it sounds real old school with the twin 2.5" system.

Magnapacks with an X-pipe, sounds glorious.

Deep crisp idle, but barks and roars when you put your foot down. No drone, no horrible annoying noises.

i put a magnaflow (2.5inch single) on my sprint. sounds awesome, loud and crisp, but not offensive. absolutely no drone. also picked up a few HP over the old flow master.
