Holden VE HSV Senator - exhaust note
This flagship HSV received the APC full upgrade -- extractors, high flow metal cats and the custom APC sports Exhaust system.
With our tuning on the APC DynoDynamics Twin Retarder chassis Dyno the car developed just on 346kw at the flywheel.

HSV VX Clubsport Burnout, in a private carpark. The audio and video for this clip are about a second out of sync, but it's still a decent skid :)
HSV VE Clubsport R8 Custom Exhaust
HSV VE Clubsport R8 (6.2L LS3 M6) - Custom Exhaust. Mid muffler and resonator delete (replaced with straight pipe) with x-force straight through sports mufflers on the rear.
The best thing about this setup that there is no drone!! Yep, with the stock mid pipe in place there was some 'resonance', not enough to call it drone, but it was there. Now there is nothing at all. Sitting on the freeway at 100kph is very quiet.
