This here is pretty much what mine sounds like, although my magnapacks are the 6" round version so have a deeper note and not as much crackle. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9jQ1qregk4

I went 2.5" dual with a 6" round Magnapack on each side, no cats, 4-1 headers. Sounds like god is having sex and makes baby jesus cry. Should sound even better soon when the new heads and cam go on.

All you need to make your EB sound like the main street of Toowoomba in the 1970's is remove the mufflers all together and install 2 x hotdogs in each exhaust pipe(after the cat's of course...)but don't know how you will go bending the passenger pipe to the back - if you really want the classic twin exit look. 2.25in pipes will give you that classic "blaaattt" when you use your right foot. The cat will silence this quite a lot(remember when we didn't have to use them!!)but a high flow item might give you a bit more resonance in the tailpipe.

Toowoomba apparently had the best quarter mile in Australia racing up Ruthven Street between Russell and Herries Street - was a hoot when you were a kid window shopping in the evening with your parents. Why isnt life like that anymore - it was all about respect for each others rides and long hair and tee shirts...ahhh the fog of remeniscing... :lol:

Classic sound and nothing like it in full song...the noise nazis will love you though.

old school v8 generally had small dia pipes like 2in and chambered mufflers and no balance pipe, I did dual 2.25in on my AU XR8 without a balance pipe with 1x hotdog each side and it sounded very oldschool, but a bit flappy at high revs, http://www.youtube.com/user/ebv8#p/u/1/jkN_eQHnW2w
I then fitted a cam then it sounded very nice but still flappy so now i got redback megaflows 1 per side and a balance pipe and its smoother now but looses volume high in the rev range for some reason. sounds more like a modern v8. next i'm going for a big single with an uneven merge pipe length to give it a burble (like the way subaru's get that lumpy sound)
similar sound to my old EB turbo v8 http://www.youtube.com/user/ebv8#p/u/6/bd3vmf6LC_o

i remember back when i had my 350 chev in a HQ I got a different note with changes of carbys, eg. a quadrajet, 450 holley sq & 650 holley DP. the 650 DP sounded the best and i don't know why,
so to get the best sound I think you need not only exhaust but heads and intake mods also
