Make it louder? the cat back will be a bit louder than stock, should sound alright. But if you want EXTREME loudness, either remove the whole section from after your cat (will sound like a tug boat but attracts all the babes plus gets you high cause the fumes come into the cabin) or dump it at the diff. Both are illegal, but will make it very very loud.

OK, note the sarcasm in my last post..it is illegal to remove the exhaust in such a way, even at the diff is illegal. Niether sound very good on a stock 3.8 V6, so...

In terms of a cannon, read around, you will quickly determine that they only belong on pirate ships and not commodores. I would not recommend it, heard the results and its HORRIBLE. Just save up and do it properly, get the satisfaction:thumbsup:

I think its legal dumping the exhaust at the diff on a ute because theres no rear seat :thumbsup:

There is a thread on removing it. Mixed opinions from people, some say it makes the car run like **** and decreases performance, others say it makes idle much smoother and drives better. Guess it has to do with the engine condition, I am yet to remove mine, but with all the critisim of removing it, don't think I'll bother.
