    I have extractors, through the original cat and then a 2.5 in supercats exhaust. Just has one muffler in it.
    Cost just over $500 including the extractors sounds a lot nicer then the standard system. Possibly a tad too loud as the local police pay me a lot me attention now.

    I just got a 2 and a half inch cat back. Fitted pacemaker extractors as well the cat has been gutted. It sounds nice and I'm not sure if I can explain it but it's got that tinny rattley noise when coming off the throttle when revving it. Trying to work out what causes that noise not even sure if it's exhaust or not sound familiar to anyone? On a Buick 3.8

    Sounds sweet on my cammed 304. sounds cool
    When u say 2 and a half inch twin system too lol. Dunno how a stroked 6 sounds or how
    Much it can flow but I was actually told at an exhaust place that the twin system was overkill on the 304

    Hey all,
    Seem there is a crapload of mixed opinions on exhaust here, and I honestly don't know a whole lot but I need some opinions before I decide what to go with.
    Got a 2001 VX Sedan, fairly stock but want to get a bolt on Lukey or Redback 2.5 Catback.
    I've noticed Lukey is more commonly appreciated but my other question is
    Resi or no? Oh and its an Auto. so options are:

    Also, do these systems generally have the same ground clearance or hang lower than stock? Currently Sitting on Superlows and some humps are already a b!tch lol don't wanna give myself even more grief.
    thanks guys.

    I'd go neither Redback or Lukey. Lukey was ok before they set the production to China.


    Either go a Manta single 2.5, or a Twin 2.25" off a clubsport/ss.

    Well holy crap.
    contacted NAAF. got a quote, bought the part & had it delivered just last week.
    finally installed it all on friday night. Easy as and to be honest i couldn't be happier with my purchase.
    Got a 2.5" Manta catback system with No rear resi for a riciculously good price and my god it sounds gorgeous!
    beautiful idle note, lovely growl and crackle when you put your foot down and practically no drone at all (besides when your hovering just before a gear change.. damn auto) but seriously.
    If anyone is looking for a great set up id definitely recommend Manta.
    Yet again props to NAAF. This guy is a champ. :spot on:

    Vz commodore 3.6L V6
    hey all just wondering if this cat back system will fit my vz v6 equipe commodore without causing any interference with the drive line or any other moving parts or cause scrapping on the ground (i have stock ride height)
    the exhaust also requires IRS and im not too sure if i have that, dont know what it looks like.
