The 5.0L V8 found in the VT Commodore was the last of a long line of Australian built V8’s, stretching right back to 1969. Producing 179kw, the stock exhaust system generally gave these engines a somewhat muted exhaust note. By fitting a Manta exhaust system, the true character of this iconic Aussie V8 can be released, together with extra power, torque and responsiveness. All exhaust systems will also fit the 5.7L HSV stroker engines.
There are a number of options to suit all requirements, tastes, and budgets. A cat-back system is the ideal choice if you’re after improved sound, while a full system will give the maximum increase in performance, and also improve the exhaust note, making it crisper and louder. The single 3″ is a great choice if you are chasing better sound, and improved performance, while the twin 2.5″ does tend to sound a little deeper and throatier. The dual 3″ is the ultimate system available for the 5.0L VT V8, giving the greatest flow, and a roaring unbridled exhaust note that will send any enthusiast into raptures. All systems are available in aluminised steel, or for the ultimate in longevity, stainless steel which carries a 10 year warranty.
