That wont get you a decent set of extractors, little than anything else.
Keep saving. If you smoke, give it up.

$1000 will get you a full system. Drive in, drive out... Usually with dyno testing as well. This would include 2.5" mandrel cat-back zorst with a high flow cat and a good set of pacemaker 4499's or similar.

However you can pay less than half that depending on if you hunt around and buy second hand and fit it all yourself.

And dude... You can't make a i6 sound like a V8 no matter how hard you try... It will still only make sound like a nice i6

That was the sort of setup I was about to suggest! Decent price too.

There is nothing you can do though, to make it sound good (V8 spec) though!

Nothing beats a quiet note, I've seen guys put to shame with loud exhaust at the lights because of their loud setup. lol
