    i notice that a lot of people feel negatively towards putting a cannon on a commodore, well that may b ok for 5L drivers to complain about them, but us 3.8 are left without any noise or crackling from out tailpipes. now i wish i could have a roaring 5L but i dont, i wanted to hear some positive feedback from anyone who has a cannon on there v6 Or has heard a v6 with a cannon to inform me on what the sound like, if a canno can make a suzuki sound tuff then y not have one on my vn(well hidden ov coarse) hehe! thanks guys

    Cannons don't make suzuki's sound tough?

    No positive feedback from me I'm afraid, if you have a 3.8 commo you don't want it looking like a rice box, you just need to add another couple of mufflers and the line. Theres plenty of v6's around that sound great without cannons.

    i dont care if it looks ricey or not, like i said its a 3.8 no point tryna make it look like a 5L muscle car, i like rice burners i just like my commodore better plus u cant see the cannon, its too low.

NOW back to business, does anyone no what i can do to the stck setup to make it louder without spending $$$? i was gunna cut the back muffler out and run a twin dump tip instead ov my vt tip now? but as far as the resinator and cat wats the plan?

    ok im not condoning the look of cannons on commies but i had a mate with a vn and he bought a jun bl cannon off a mate cheap and it did sound really good and it was jammed as far up as it would go and it still used to scrape nd his car wasnt even that low so my advice to you just put straight through pipe like my 6 i no its a straight 6 but fuk it sounds beefy just go extractors minimus mufflers and 2.5" pipe with a 3 inch tip. wont scrape anywere near as much

    if you not worried about illegalities... and you want noise, cut a section of exhaust piping out at the diff... Leave the STOCK pipe out the back, and even a cursory look under the car will show a full exhaust system...

    if you put a cannon on a commodore you are, I'm sorry to say, A complete nut job... :p If you want to blaaaaaah noise of a subaru, go buy one, commodores, only noise you SHOULD hear is the engine...

    yer true but a cannon isnt any wider in diameter than the stck muffler correct? what if i just stuck it in the place of the muffler and ran an extension pipe out to a vt tip? im not spending $$ ive spent more on this car then what i bought it for and i think its time to get real.. if i can get the same sound with a hacksaw then ill do that, in the end its more money in my pocket

    Keesh,
    youre obviously on a tight budget, just get the rear muffler removed with a piece of 2.5" installed in its place....or whatever you want to do.....
    you dont really sound like someone who can write their own RWC....how old are you?.....update: right, just checked out your profile....no one i know at the old age of 18 can write RWC's......
