Well l just put a cat back 3in XForce exhaust on and l am very disappointed with the sound.
Went on youtube and that sounds good l will go with that, yer right. You can hear the sound of the exhaust when you
get up it,got the missus to drive and could hardly hear come in the drive way.Drive it at 60ks and it sounds like a standed one.

Did you get the one with the adjustable valve?

EDIT: wait for it to carbon up a bit as well.

Buy a cam - you'll hear it coming from 8 blocks away


Maybe invest in some extractors and hiflow cats they will help with the sound

sounds like xforce may have made some slight modifications to eliminate exhaust drone when cruising around at low rpm's.

Sounds like an improvement, xforce are known for terrible drone at low revs/cruising speeds.

Like everyone else said, let the exhaust bed in a bit, it will get a meatier sound soonish, also check that your car is the same as what you heard online manual/auto, cam/stock, extractors and cats etc There are lots of different things that effect the exhaust sound. Check that they definately did the 3" too because it should be pretty loud.
