2000 VX 3.8 AUTO
hi all, im new to these forums id like some help.
I recently purchased a VX commodore, and id like to install a exhaust system with extractors. Ive gotten a mixed answer in terms of the law with modifications.

1. Do extractors need a engineer's slip?
2. Extractors allowed for P plates in NSW?
3. Reccomendations on a Nice exhaust system that doesnt sound like japanese import wanna be ####

thanks :)

hey bud if u want a decent sound definatly a sports exhaust of some sort wheather its a bolt on from the cat back or tuned exhaust system, on a v6 a twin cat is a waste of time and money, they sound s**t just like a tractor, and cannons arn't that great they sound like an import, i gotta 2.5 inch bolt on from the cat back and it sounds good not anything to boast and whoo hoo over buts addds a nice note to it, dunno whats legal down there with the law but up here its sweet as good luck, let us know how u go....

Yeah, nothing stupid at all lol, my mums friend just came down for a day and has 2001 VX and has a nice sound to it, but not over the top, id consider getting the same system as her, but would also like other feedback and info on laws and regulations :(

I had a vs auto with a 2.5 inch exhaust. It was just an off the shelf brand, cost me around $300 with a basic oval tip. Sounded really nice, not like an import. As for the extractors, I heard they don't really change the sound a whole lot?

they add some performance and also add to the burble/gargle sound + the current stock ones are rusted so i do need new ones.. ive been researching for the past couple of days, extractors and exhaust "Should" be legal so im good on that front, but i just discovered cold air intakes, saw a few on ebay for $300 or so and looks like i could install my self or with car savvy mate.
