    VE SSV 6.0 Manual
    Hi all. Yes I've searched for the answer. On this forum, Google etc etc. Spent many hours (literally) reading threads, but can't find a definitive answer. So here's another exhaust question.

    I bought a VE SSV off a young bloke a few weeks back. While I love his enthusiasm, and enjoy the sound of a loud V8, the 3 inch cat back exhaust he fitted droans . I don't think it is a quality system. Not sure what type of mufflers are on there as nothing is branded. Normally it wouldn't bother me, but it DROANS! Sometimes I can't hear the backseat passengers.

    So here is the question. I've been offered an almost unused standard VF SSV Redline exhaust system. Will it bolt straight onto a VE SSV?

    Thanks all.

    Provided you don’t have a ute, it’ll fit

    The only difference between the VE and VF exhausts were the clamp v flexi join to connect the rear mufflers to the middle section

    Other than that, hangers etc are all in the same spot

    It should fit, but there is a slight difference with the rear oxy sensor positions.
    VE has rear oxy sensor in the cat back, just aft of the cat/cat back joint.
    VF has the rear oxy sensor mounted in the rear end of the cat.
    If you use the full VF exhaust it shouldn't be a problem.
    If you're just using the cat back, you'll need bungs welded on the cat back to mount the VE rear oxy sensors.

    Excellent. Thanks very much gents. I was worried about both the oxy sensors and hangers. Much appreciated.

    Ok, next related question....anyone know what size the pipes are on a VF Redline exhaust? I'm hoping to bolt it up to a set of HSV extractors.

    Factory cat back should be 2.25".
