Gday Fellas,

Got a few questions as im looking to get an exhaust pretty soon just chasing some more noise on the car. Im looking for just a loud rumble like my old VR's exhaust had it was a mecury 2 and a half catback with just a hot dog and tip no muffler

Im looking to get the exhaust of ebay because they look like they're the cheaper prices. But which brand should i go for?

Cheers

WOW Dude you got slightly ripped off. For a VS probably a Redback or Lukey... Wouldn't buy cheap exhausts off ebay, generally will sound crap.

The ones on ebay are lukeys/redbacks but which one would sound better? What gives more growl etc.

Wont lie, you kinda did get ripped nal. Ebay you can get redback exhaust $200 pacemaker heads for $500

I think redback gives a bit more of a growl then lukey. Have had redback in my last 3 cars and I can't complain. Really its down to personal choice.

I got my exhaust done at tide bros in Newport top notch work I got pacemaker extractors put on, high flow stainless cat, 2.5 inch all the way through with twin rumpus at the end and only one muffler sounds amazing been asked while at the lights if it's an 8 :) idles perfect with perfect growl especially around 3000 rpm
