Hey guys, I'm looking for a deep sounding exhaust for my Gtst 32, just want to know what will drone a little bit, give the rb20 a deep note to it, and not have a raspy obnoxious exhaust. Thanks

Hey mate, you ought to be upgrading your exhaust system to increase performance not only to get better sound as you ought to nvest your cash on a good exhaust not any Autobarn/eBay one that might sound good.

Anyway, if you are willing to spend some cash for both performance and a better exhaust note then I recommend you look at brands such as Apexi, HKS, Fujitsubo and Tomei.

I have a 3” Apexi turbo-back exhaust and it sounds really nice but not too loud.

You need a budget, decide between an over the counter brand or custom and what dump pipes set up / catback or full system etc?

As if buy a Jap brand exhaust with a 2.5" restrictor inside it (like they nearly all have).

1. Choose mufflers.

2. Build exhaust at shop.

3. Skid off into sunset.

The JASMA mufflers will obviously have restrictors, but OP is after sound upgrade, so 2nd hand JASMA cat-backs shouldn't be out of the picture. Don't get X-Force though. Get two fat mufflers and get an exhaust shop to install it as GTSBoy said.

I've been looking at a HKS Silent hi power, and a Greddy Power Extreme, but I can't find a decent sound clip of the Greddy. Standard dump pipe, Blitz Front pipe, and not sure on the test pipe. I've been looking on Nengun

 

Thanks for the replies guys, I appreciate it as I'm new to the scene

Hi mate,

Here's the HKS Silien Hi-Power one you mentioned: 

If you want a more tougher droney sounding one...I highly suggest the Tomei Extreme TI exhaust:

I'm out in the Central NSW and the roads aren't the best and was advised by a mechanic, family friend, not to go with the Titanium because of the roads. Wondering if the Tomei Titanium would hold up, as apposed to a Stainless Steel HKS and Greddy options, also want to keep it stealthy to avoid unwanted attention, Cop lives at the end of my street :/

Unless you live in Antarctica, a titanium exhaust is not going to wear. Sound wise if you’re worried abito sound then why upgrade to a louder drone sounding exhaust in the first place?

Custom exhaust from good local exhaust shop, reasonable size mid muffler and varex remote control muffler at back.

Leave home quietly without waking up the neighborhood or old mate copper and then release the hounds when all clear. My 2c.

I prefer mild steel over stainless, less raspy and deeper sound imo. Titanium = great=$

Titanium will make it raspy n obnoxiously loud.
Jap brand exhausts are shit. They hang low. Test pipes are illegal
As above go to a local exhaust shop and tell them what u want. They can make it fit snug up against the body and they won’t have any step downs in them

I've been told that cars before 1990 are not required to have a catalytic converter, so a test pipe would be perfectly legal. According to this mechanic

It doesn't exactly help when I've bought the car with no exhaust at all. Not even a manifold. I'll blue slip the thing with a Cat if I can, but after that... There will be a little less choking the old girl

You can always get a temporary exhaust then take your time looking around for what you really want.
