Hi guys, ive recently purchased a 2009 FG XR6 in dash green, and I am wondering whether a catback exhaust system is worth it, and will I have any issues from the police as a p plater.                I was thinking of purchasing this exhaust (https://www.deaperformance.com.au/p/Store-Wide-Sale-Excluding-XForce/Falcon-FG-XR6-Sedan-2.5-Inch-Catback-Exhaust-Syste/ST219HD-246D-TIPS) , and I am wondering whether it is legal for p platers as it is illegal to have performance enhancing mods, and I don't know whether the police consider it is a performance modification, due to it not actually being an engine mod and wont do anything but make the car sound a bit better. if that's not a good exhaust could you recommend any others.

Thanks.

if you want the car to sound good, then yes, a cat-back exhaust is worth it... but if you want to avoid police attention then any sound or obvious visual mods are going to cause attention to be gathered... but it really depends how often you drive at night more than anything :)

 

there's no worries with illegality with regard to a cat-back exhaust other than potential "too loud" problems.

Will do, also another quick question, do I need to tune my car or is it fine because I always see people saying you need to tune your car after putting a new exhaust on it. Thanks.

nah, not a cat-back... and also you can change the whole engine-to-tip exhaust on an N/A without tuning it.

Thanks mate. Was a bit confused because a lot of people were saying their cars weren't running properly and others were saying it didn't change anything and were running fine.
