Ride: EB1 Fairmont Ghia T5 Wagon

Location: Seven Hills, Sydney
NSW, Australia

My exaust is the Redback catback 2.5" system with one main muffler and a rear resinator.

With my windows down I can hear the car at idle, and when driving at city and highway speeds, the exhaust tone and volume is easily audible but not annoying.

If the windows are up you can hear the exhaust, but it is very quiet in the car, and you can easily have a normal conversation with the other passengers.

I have been in a couple of cars with only one muffler, and we had to raise our voices to talk to each other, and it was quite loud.

maybe its the added sound protection they put in the fairlanes but i never had that issue, the one thing i love about the wagon is its whisper quiet, when i plant the foot all you hear is raw motor, and it turns heads more then a loud exhaust believe it or not..

in the wagon im probably only removing 1 resonator and leaving the rest the 2.25 exhaust..

while we are on the talk of this, what one is better to remove? the front or rear resonator to get a nice note? it would be front wouldn't it?

ive experimented with exhausts a bit (sorry to hijack your thread btw liam lol)
and i removed the rear muffler from a stock system and fitted a pod and it sounded quite nice when giving it some
it was only a lil more beefy than stock at idle and cruising but when you floored it you could hear it more and it was as you said, more of an engine noise than just exhaust.

ive even had an exhaust with stock big centre muffler and a middle resonator inplace of the smaller centre muffler, with no rear muffler and that was a lil louder again but nothing crazy.
just sounded quite nice.

both of those were with cat installed though.

dunno mate, i fitted 6" speakers that slot straight in the speaker holes, just had to drill new mounting holes, as the original speakers had 3 screws and my new Kenwoods have 4.

good luck mate!

huggie, i paid $80 for mine from Ronza on the forum here -- bargain considering they're $300 new on fleabay! (even more of a bargain at $50!)

did u have troubles fitting yours with the bottom hooks not locating all the way in the corner, stopping the parcel shelf pushing all the way in??

i had this trouble today and ended up cutting little notches out the back end of the shelf where the blind hooks are, to allow the shelf to push all the way in.


cheers,
spud

Just as a note, I'm now getting a company car from work so I'll be selling this DA LTD due to no space in the driveway :(

PM me if you're interested, as this isn't the thread to discuss it.

I'll link to a proper add soon :)

cheers,
spud x
