Any pics Teza?? What colour is it? Not mentioned in your sig.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.

Teza,

we want a full report on the mods once you have driven some of your fav roads. Especially cats back versus full exhaust system.

cheers

Re: BA XR8 ute.. bloody unreal!

Teza,

I'd also like to know the difference between:

1) stock
2) cat back
3) extractors + HF cats

If you can spare a moment and let us know whether the money is worth taking it from 2 to 3.

I will be getting my ute soon and am looking around for someone to do the mods :o)

Also...(the lexus forum guys do it) would it be possible to get a sound file of your exhuast note?

Re: BA XR8 ute.. bloody unreal!

I have rang em before and have a fair idea of what the prices are. What I'm more interested in at this stage is the improvements.

I have rang quite a few places...75% of them believe that a change in muffler will do the trick and the rest is just "rubbish". I have been advised that the stock exhaust is a 2 1/2 inch mandrel bent exhaust, changing it to a 3" won't make any big difference except create drone.

so many options...
