    Right guys and girls in the next few weeks maybe month, I am gonna be getting myself a noisy exhaust system..

    Now i dont have a clue on what to buy but i know i want it loud although not illegally loud..

    I have been informed manta are good, I really only want cat back for now but have also been told that the my hsv clubsport doesnt have a off the shelf ctaback like normal vz commodores??

    Anyway has anyone any suggestions on what i should do i dont want to pay loads of money out for an exhaust and i would prefer if i could get a 2nd hand system/cat back....

    If you want noise on a budget, go for the Xforce system.

    Yep. You can pick up a second hand XForce catback for a few hundred bucks. Have a gander on ebay, there's usually heaps of second hand catbacks on there.

    I have an Xforce fitted on my car, cat back, and it puts out a pretty decent sound! Makes the 5.7 sound like a V8. With standard gearing though, it does cause quite a bit of drone in the cabin when cruising at 80km/h. If your car is manual, just change gears ha! Since I had mine tuned though, the drone is no longer there! The Xforce does help the engine pull a bit harder through the rev range (as all decent cat backs should).

    And Yes, it should fit a clubby no problems.

    Most if not all off the shelf cat backs won't fit on the HSV Z's as they are different to all the HSV VT2-VY2 exhausts.
    The diifference (sound and size apart) are the first joint in front of the centre mufflers.
    On all Holden VT-VZ V8 and Hsv VT2-VY2 the pipes are in a Y shape where as on the HSV VZ the pipes are togetheron a single dual flange.

    This pic what the front section of the catback on pre HSV VZ's look like apart from the twin tail pipes .

    I'd get the Manta over the Redback any day (if they were the only two to choose from).

    if you want to spend money on the other hand go di fillipo. manta cat back is pretty loud and sounds good. but now i have a full system it sounds way better. my cat back was brand spanker for $1000, straight through centre and rear muffler, louder in the car but not as loud for the coppaz to hear it.. unless you always give it shit like me. di fillipo would be more. depends what you wanna spend. your quote for $650 aint bad. i had to pay freight and for modification. i think thats why i paid so much

    No except for the HSV Z's all the rest have the sameY shape starting point and flange size for cat backs.
    So any HSV VT2-VY2 catback will fit any holden VT2 onwards V6 0r V8.
