i have a AU1 with the good old standard exhaust. want a new exhaust from the cat back but dont know what kind to get? looking for some thing that gives a nice rumble when cruising but also something loud when i take off from lights. i have heard Redback 2.5" are good, but should i get a straight tail (hotdog) or a resinator? any other brands ect?
any help would be great
thanks chris

P.S im looking around and been told i will need to spend around roughly $450-500

Red back 2.5" with 1 muffler probably a Lukey and NO resinator...should be less then 400.

seriously go extractors.... its not illegal and it wont make alot of difference to loudness....But will give you a nice increase in power. If you decide to get extractors get PH4480.

so having extractors wont give me a canary or anything, i have been told it will. and will it change insurance at all, especially with the new P plater laws?
