    Hi all

    Now this might seem like a stupid thread, but i know that alot of people are searching for a specific sound. The perfect exhaust note is different to everyone. Its just preference.

    Months ago when i was looking for that sound i searched high and low to find what i wanted, in the end it was basically a youtube vid that helped me.

    I invite anyone with a V6 to post their setup and a video or recording of the sound so that people wishing to get the same note know what to get.

    Mine is a custom 2.5" catback, with glass pack muffler and rear hotdog resonator with twin 2" tips welded on. The powerhouse is an ecotec

    Its a good idea which has been floating around for a while now. Biggest problem is, we need a set of standards on how to record... Even then with different equipment and encoding settings its very difficult to get an even playing felid.

    However, i have uploaded a clip of my car.

    Details: Holden Commodore 1993 VR V6 Manual
    Exhaust: Pacemaker Extractors into 2.5" Exhaust system with rear resonator.
    The clip doesnt really do it justice, as you hear too much background noise/distortion.

    YouTube - Holden Commodore VR V6

    This was filmed with the camera directly behind the car, about 1.5m away. In real life, its a lot deeper and you hear the idle a lot more. Not bad for a 6.

    Cheers, Errol.

    I agree, as a musician i believe that the only way to get a true recording is to place the microphone under the exhaust pipe. This way the air movement will not distort the note or use something to stop wind feedback. (place a sock over the mic for instance)

    I placed my video at the angle shown, with the built in mic and all worked out fine. I recommend this is how its done, that way the camera will also be fairly close
    Unfortunately there was a train going through at the time of the recording.

    I got it done at NAR NAR GOON EXHAUSTS in Melbourne's South East

    It cost me $265 + tip which i supplied.

    At 4000-6000prm it sounds basically the same, but quicker and louder. Ill make you another recording if you want... Ill do it tomorrow

    hey John, what sort of rpm does your car idle at? just sounded a little high in that clip, its sounds good though.

    ill have to grab my mates camera one day and record a clip of my exhaust note - maybe even try get a drive by clip coming on boost to hear the exhaust then :yeah:
