Exhaust opinons. Which is the best to get?

Postby Stiltzdog » Thu Mar 18, 2010 12:51 pm

Hey all,

So my mates have finally got to me and the mods about to start. tyres - Done, CAI - Done and K&N - Done.

I want to install a turbo back exhaust system for my 07 XT and wanted to know what people have got and how much they shelled out for it$$

My goal is to have something that will be tolerant in normal conditons and on the highway but when you put the foot to the ground, thats when the party should start!!

What what i have read, 3" seems a good diameter
I am thinking i should avoid cannon exhaust purely because of the constant droning noise.

Any suggestions / recomendations??

is the turbo back that much better than a cat back?

I'm assuming AVO only makes one type? 3"?

You'll notice an enormous difference with a turbo back just bear in mind you'll need a tune after you get it fitted.

I'm running an XForce 3" TBE with an oval muffler. Its pretty loud but XForce are generally cheaper than the other brands out there. TurboXS/AVO/XForce all good, depends what you can afford really.

Sweet, thanks guys,

Yeah thought a tune would be in order. Looking into the AVO now! Do you think i would be able to install myself? i have reasonable knowlegde and looks quite simplisitic underneath to pull out/install.

Xforce are usually a cannon shape?

The dump pipe can be a real PITA to fit to the turbo - if you haven't done one before.
If you're confident on your un-bolting skillz, you should be fine. :giggle:

There is a lot of fiddly bolts around the heat shield and turbo/dump pipe. If you've got the patience then go for it.

XForce make cannons and oval mufflers (with single tip and twin tip).

Just a word of advise, when you do decide on a system, maybe have the diff back section run in 2.5".
I had to replace that section on my GT Foz as the droning sound was a killer.

The main thing with any wagon/hatch is a reasonably quiter rear muffler & a decent resonator in the centre section.

I had an MRT 3" TBE with a HiTech oval on my XT Foz - it was great. An AVO will be even a bit better, especially in the collector & dump.
A reflash(tune) is a 100% must with an 07 or you will cook a cylinder &/or damage a turbo.
Regards,
Les.

I have a TCP system, main reason was because the cat is in the dump. So when the popo check they can clearly see the cat from the engine bay. Ask a cop to crawl under your car to check you have a cat in the mid pipe and hes more likely to just defect you instead. Something to keep in mind considering how strict it is these days.

invidia turboback system...

I was like you I did NOT want a canon...though I don't mind the canon sound but I can imagine how terrible that would be on a highway (+looks like sheet)

I got my invidia TBE fitted about 4 weeks ago, and im in LOVE - perfect rumble, unleashes when you really want her to, and looks almost EXACTLY like the stock STI system from behind (similar tip and muffler)
