    How bout this ????

    2.5" inch X Force Cat back system, pacemaker extractors 2.5" and also pacemaker high flow cat Is this good ???? Also should I get 3" pacemaker extractors or the 2.5" ????
    And how do I swap the rear mufflers for a straight through pipe?

    straight through mufflers are free flowing mufflers... straight pipe is just pipe. Honestly - don't bother going nuts on your exhaust. Grab an SS cat back and some mufflers/pipe. More than that on an omega is pissing against the wind.

    Get rid of the whole system, just have headers, that would be loud.

    I cant help but ask why.....? Maybe if it was an SV6 at least but an omega? If u really want to waste money then go ahead and get pacemaker extractors & cats and as the others have said straight through at the rear, but its going to droan like all hell....... But in all honesty just take TinSnip's advice and get a stock SS system and apadt it to urs.....

    Buy an ss system from holmart.
    Cheap to buy and when you realise it sounds like **** you can swap the original back on.

    Nikola,
    You won't get any performance at all from an omega with an exhaust. You are practically wasting your time. Just get an SS cat back and stock mufflers. You may get a slightly better sound but that is all. It's mostly cosmetic.

    as has been said, get a cheap second hand SV6/SS exhaust, swap the mufflers out (pacemaker, redback etc) and it should sound alright. Going 2.5" or 3" will loose power and sound droney as ####.

    want it loud? Extractors, 2.5inch system centre long big hotdog, early dump pipe to road at the rear wheels (no resonator as dump is just before that)

    Got that setup on my V6, sounds alot like an 8 at low rev range, yes gets a little crackly up high but sounds mean and no where near as shitty as you'd expect. Got this on my vt.

    Shame you aint in Brisbane. Happily show anyone that doesnt think itd sound good.

    I think what you are trying to say is You personally don't respond well to exhausts...

    V6's respond nicely to a mild exhaust system, You have no idea...
