Mods done. . .

-suspention uprade with new bushings , ball joints , SL springs & some KYB shocks all-round.
-wheels (18's or something)

Hey all , today i fitted my nice new shiny exhaust but i'm a bit disapointed as it seems to be lacking in mid range power (it's barely noticeable ) and has a little drone however it is more responsive .

Would anyone here know how i can to give it more of a crisp sound ? and would fitting headers help with that ? Will post a video of it shortly .

Cheers

when i got my catback done (2.5 inch redback system) it took 2-300kms before the sound got a bit deeper... so you might notice it change....
