Default Anyone tried Humex exhaust?

Also known as Sterling brand. Thinking of trying a big bore catback for my BF. They make exhausts for various Ford models so just wondering if anyone's tried them?
We can't get Redback, Xforce etc in NZ, so this is one of the few options at a reasonable price.

Humex actually make a few different brands including Redback so it all comes off the same production line in Albury.

So do you think it might be similar to (or the same as) a Redback catback? What are redback catbacks like?

I run a redback cat back exhaust, from Hurricane headers and cat, the exhaust is fine, not extremely loud, but makes itself present when you want it to.

But if you want it louder, just a matter of changing the sports mufflers to hotdogs, no droning that I've experienced.

Default Re: Anyone tried Humex exhaust?

is it worth getting a 2.5" big bore catback then? are there any benefits in terms of power increase? or should I just get my mufflers replaced with hotdogs?

2.5" is a big as you should go, it's up to you really though, I don't think there's any dyno results to say otherwise though.

yep, i know about Rage, they are about 100 dollars more than the humex, dunno if I'd be gaining anything. didnt know about autopassion. will probably got to Woolf, they will custom make me a system for a grand, & they come well recommended (lots of people here in NZ have said not to buy Rage, dunno why. but it put me off a bit).
