Default 2 1/2 exhaust

hey guys im planning on just putting a 2 1/2 inch straight thru pipe on my VK berlina (6 cyl) and got a quote today for $450 for the 2 1/2 inch and $350 for a 2 inch.. is this the normal prices or does it seem a bit expensive..

and can anyone recommend a good exhaust shop in the blacktown area please?

Hey Danny, why not give our sponsor Penrith City Exhaust a call and get a quote for comparison. Ask for Eddie and tell him Club Commodore referred you, he'll look after you.

Regards,
Matt

Speaking about exhausts...I'm not to familiar with exhausts but my VT V6 has 2 1/2 inch exhaust and i notice it has a muffler in between.... this might sound dumb but does straight through 2 1/2 inch mean there is no muffler?

My last SS had tri-y's, thru 1 cat & into a single 3" system with 2 mufflers & was at least 10db's over the legal limit when it was cold, closer to 20 when it was nice a warm.

I'd hate to test it when I was running it straight out of the extractors LOL

yeah straight through prob would be way to loud....i want my exhaust to sound different though, not just a typical VT with a 2 and half inch exhaust you know? aparently 3' sounds like crap....would twin exhaust sound crappy?

If you are putting a straight through exhaust guy's just remember your performance and economy may suffer you need back pressure if your cars are standard. its ok if you have plenty of performance work done to your motor but its just a thought you can do what ever you like its your car make it sound the way you want it.....
