you don't neccessarily have to re-do the entire exhaust system. the muff for the most part sets the exhaust note. large displacement and more cyl do have a role. but a 4.5L I6 is not a small displacement 6 cyl by any means, very stout for a 6 cyl for sure. and an inline config is even more aggressive/fuller in it's sound than a V6 IMHO.

IDK the resources you have down under for parts, where to go and such, but go for a "flowmaster" or "magnaflow" muff app for your vehicle. plenty o sources online.

you could also go on youtube and do a search for those muffs. there are clips that have the sound of those ppl who have installed them. not all will have the sound your vehicle will produce as there aren't a lot of I6's out there. cruiser is one model that still employs that config.

another pricier option is a full cat back system. many youtube clips on those as well..

hope that helps you make your desision
