I am looking to get a loud exhaust system with no drone preferrably one just below or even on the legal limit when i put my foot down
it is for a V6 (3.8l) VX SII Executive commodore and so far the only results i have found are from mates who have said to get a lukey or redback system with 2.5" high flow cat & pacemaker extractors.

can anyone help me out on how to make it as loud as legally possible and which brand lukey or redback ?? also does any1 know a good place to take my car in SA who i could take it to and they would give me exactly what i am asking for on here? im thinking profix. im looking to spend around $1500 max

redback single muffler will drone, redback with rear hotdog will not :)
or my mate just got a gen 3 redback exhaust on his vz and it sounds ok, that was custom fitted, cost him 550 im pretty sure
then u get some pacemaker extractors ;)

Leave the stock system on it if you want it to be legal, I dont think any aftermarket system will be legal sound or emissions wise.

yeah its not the emissions im worried about i dont really care about them, i just dnt want to be defected for having it too loud im not sure the legal DB of sound it can be though thats why im rthinkin about taking it to profix and telling them what i want and see what they reccomend

Well there's not much point spending $1500 a system, if its just gonna sound like the one you just took off the car is it. Now if you dont care about sound then the pacemaker, hiflow cat with a 2.5" system will be the path to take.
