    Default V6 exhaust...

    Hi! I want change the exhaust to my Skinny. the configuration is

    Manifols -> [CAT] -> [SIlencer] -> [Silencer] -> [Silencer] -> [Silencer]

    I think..

    Manifols ->[De-Cat] [a little silencer] [straight pipe] -> [end muffler]

    What diameter can I use? I want that sounds great but no very noisy

    [this is a 145 exhaust] I think this little silencer for retaining out gasses and not lose power at low rpm.



    I have a SuperSprint end muffler, I only need change the exhaust outlet but no works on rear bumper hole

    Hi Fer,

    I'd go with a 2.5" system to be honest, should be able to cope fine with the power of a standard V6. Are you going to be sticking with the standard exhaust manifolds?

    And I think just the 2 silencers should be ok, might be a little on the loud side without the cat there. I'd take a look on youtube, there seem to be a few V6 videos up there with aftermarket exhausts.

    i was using in my v6 supersprint rear silencer, and it was the only one silencer without cat.

    very nice noise, not loud

    I had a similar, a large rear box but nothing else to the cat, lovely rumble and not too loud using 2.5" pipe.

    I first tried it with a smaller rear box but it gave me a headache!

    Thanks Steve!, yes, I think I will use 2.5, I will leave the stock manifolds. in the future I want to do a full stainless exhaust. but in the far future.

    Ill try make plug & play for a cat

    Im looking videos.

    Thanks Suzumushi! You have a supersprint for a model o generic? I dont know what car is my Supersprint.

    Was being used in a 145QV, a friend who not used it gave it to me. He bought it from a guy on the 145 UK forum. But is not on the catalog of the 145.

    Thanks Wrinx! Then without cat, but with a smaller front silencer should compensate for noise.

    another vote for 2.5"
