VP Commodore Executive V6 Series 2 '93
Does any one know of or recommend an exhaust shop in Sydney that does a reasonable exhuast upgrade for a stock VP V6 non-IRS sedan. I'm after a good exhaust note/sound more than anything else, but also wouldn't mind better driveabilty, etc. As a full-time student my budget can't stretch much further than $500, and I am not too worried about extractors, just after a 2.5 inch system. Thanks

Theres the usual suspects RedBack Lukey system. But can't help you in your area sorry.
But can tell you i have a redback system and am very happy with it. I got to pick the sound with different hot dogs till it was what i liked so it gives off a burble that gives it a touch of a different sound next to other systems.
Funny story my brother was in at a mates house i didn't know the house, I drove past and he told his mates that was my brother he rang to prove to them it was me:D. He says it's got a unique burble i think it's the hot dog.
Get into underground car parking and set off some alarms:p

if anybody tries to charge you more than $300 for a catback zorst its daylight robbery.

they're off the shelf items, no more work required than grinding the old off at the cat and welding the new one on .. plus an bracket or two ..

i got mine for about $250-$275 from memory .. it was well over a year ago though.

yeh always shop around when your looking for an exhaust... everyone here in canberra were asking around the 300 mark for a redback exhaust without rear muffler, then found a guy in melbourne selling the same exhaust for 225 delivered. thats heaps of money to save and to put towards other mods, so remember to look around...

I got my redback catback for $320 with the two mufflers and i was not happy with the note so i got the resinator removed. another $40 so if i was you i wouldnt get a resinator in the 1st place. Sounds sweet as now.

Do you find you redback exhaust with no rear muffler sounds best just over 2500rpm? My sounds awsome accelerating at 2500rpm just wondering if anyone elses does. Mines a 5sp by the way.
