hey everyone, i drive a VY S II and im wanting to do a full exhaust upgrade eventualy. i want to replace headers, pipes and muffler. was just asking if i should be getting a 2.5" system (most people see to go for this) or a 2.25" system?? i wont be doing to many mods to the engine, just intake probably.

the real question is i have heard that for a stock V6 ecotech, 2.25" pipes are better for the engine over 2.5" pipes? something to do with back pressure or something?? any help would be great =]

thanks everyone,
sam

p.s any sugestions about exhaust system would also be appreciated, let me know what exhaust you are running if you have upgraded =]

well if you can afford it go for a twin 2.25" (im fairly sure its 2.25" or 2" ) system as from what i have read its the best system for a ecotec but its cost more then a single 2.25" or 2.5" exhaust

ok thanks mate, i will keep that sugestion in mind. might be saving for a while to get a twin system, plus i dont really want to cut into the rear of the body for the second pipe. i think i will end up sticking with a single system exhaust though.

you dont have to cut the body, twin systems follow the same path as the single.

VY ute
I'm running a 5" steam pipe from the stock manifold. I figured it was future proof since I'm going to supercharge it, then twin turbo charger it and stroke it, and weld on 4more cylinders. Once that is done I will have to get the computer retuned. I was thinking of a motec system exhaust cos I head that in Fast and furious and it sounded like it was good for 600rwkw's and I've been told that it will only use 3Litres per 100k.

Hey mate i would just leave the system as is factory system is pretty good i think the factory system is 2.25 press bent if you want some noise swap the mufflers around Lukey or something like that.
I never herd a nice sounding v6 vz though.
