I'm a cheap bastard and do want a spend anything on a fancy exhaust :p i thinking of just putting a 2.5" straight cat back on my VN V6. anyone done this before? how would i go above doing it? how loud can i expect it to be? but i don't need you preaching all the road laws, i know them :(. i know the performance gain would be minimal but my current exhaust sounds like crap, the muffler rattles and its pissing me off.

wouldnt sound to bad but would be louder... i was told a easy fix is to remove the rear muffler, my mate has a stock VZ with stock exhaust, he removed the rear muffler and i tell u wat sounds better than wat it did before..food for thought

my vn has no muffler and sounds alright but it rattles but that is because it isnt mounted properly. It is loud enough for me i supose. but to each is own.

As in just cutting the muffler itself at the end off completely????

a straight pipe from after the cat, still want the cat those fines are very pricey. no muffler or resonator and not stupid half hoop bend, direct as possible without having to change much. going under the axle an option?

Do you think the bends would cause a restriction on a VN V6? You're living in Lala land....
