Hi there,
I've been a member for a little while now, however I haven't made much of a contribution to the forum. I thought I would kick off by showing off my pride and joy.
I saved my arse off for this car, originally I had a VT, had that for a few months, then upgraded to the ute just before series 2 came out.

Bodykit: Standard
Engine Type: 3.6L SIDI
Engine Mods: Standard
Exhaust: Standard with OPG rear mufflers
Gearbox: 6 Speed Auto

20inch Wheels (not sure what design)

Extractors and cats
Speakers/sound system
DRL Headlights

Who did you get the mufflers through & have you got an audio/video clip of their sound?

You can get em off ebay for 500$, easy to install. Ive had them on for about 2 months and they're pretty loud. They have some drone and are borderline fart cannons. Im looking at getting xforce 2.25 exhaust put in after i thought i could get away with a cheap ebay solution.

TommySV6Ute, as mentioned before, I got the mufflers off eBay for $460 from Original Parts Group.
This isn't my car, but here's a vid of them...
YouTube - SIDI SV6 with OPG Quad 3" Mufflers
They look pretty good, but as previously said, they're rather loud, but while cruising on the freeway and such the noise level isn't much greater than stock.
When at idle you can hardly tell from inside or out that the exhaust is different, but once you give it a boot full it's very loud, but it sounds good for a 6. There is drone between 1900-2500ish rpm.

Thanks rusty, the sports bars do look good, it's funny, I've had people pull up next to me at the lights and ask about the bar :)

Thanks Jim.

A mate bought Magnaflow mufflers, they are a lot more mellow in the audio department but he did describe a noticeable low end increase while driving.

Still trying to find what I want.

Yeah it took me a while to decide what I wanted, mufflers, cat back, brand all that.
Sorta wish I saved a little more and got a cat back system, but at the same time I've heard just replacing the rear mufflers is enough on the stock system.
I like the look and sound of the Hurricane mufflers, but haven't been able to find them, only seen them in youtube vids.

So I finally got around to putting 20inch rims on the car, got them with tyres off a mate for $2200, tyres are pretty much brand new, so I couldn't turn down the offer, got a few good pics of it today.

Please, no negative comments about the grille, if you don't like it, don't comment :)
