Buying a Exaust for my XR

Hello fellow ford enthusiasts...Im am wanting to buy an exaust system. I have rang a exaust shop "Custom Exaust Specialist" which is close to the Gold Coast. Anyway he has quoted me 1850 for a full stainless sytem for my XR6 HP AUII. These are the detials he gave me. 2.5 inch system, mandural bent with Pacemaker Extractors and using some race muffler, mentioned something about a "Fell" something. He sounded very convincing on the phone and spent bout 10 to 15 minutes explaining the detials. So what im wondering, is this a lot of money for a full stainless system. He also said to me he hasnt done any of the new AU's XR6's before but has on earlier ones.

Does this sound alright for the price. Im not very mechanically minded, so any advice on what questions i should ask and what to look for when buying a system like this would help ppl.

Cheers ppl

Cassius,

I just got two quotes for the same system that you are after for the same car, an AUII XR6 HP.

A HM header and exhaust for around $1200. This is from an online store so you still have to get it fitted (See my post "Opinions Please")

A Pacemaker system will cost the same as above fitted and if I was after more performance they will fit different headers (didn't say what brand) for $50 extra.

OMG!!! you guys are getting hell ripped off

i was quoted $750 for pacemaker headers, with mild steel 2.5" into 3" with hi-flow cat, and some kinda race muffler, mandrel bent

my mates is mates with the owner also, so that made a difference

but then a genie full mandrel 2.5" with cat, extractors muffler and resonator was $820, including two dyno runs.

this is in Perth btw...

no way would you spend what that guy quoted you for an XR6HP.

what aussie pete got done recently i could get for about 2k fitted, and made etc etc.

and your being quoted 1800+ for a simple exhaust system

You said the magic words

Things are a lot dearer on the East Coast. Since there is more demand, they up the prices. Sad but true, I'm quite happy to pay around $1200 but for what they quoted Cassius forget it!

South, you are quoting a mild steel system, stainless always costs more. The headers probably aren't coated either.

My complete Herrod system cost me $1800 (with Tickford club discount) and as far as I'm concerned, it's worth every cent.

a stainless steel 3" from the turbo back, with hiflow muffler, your original cat, gutted if you like, mandrel bent is $550 fitted for a VLturbo, or $750 with a hi flow cat

so the s/s isnt much dearer as you can see there....

If they are gutting cats, they aren't exactly a reputable shop then are they? When I said stainless, I meant the entire system!

How did VL Turbos come into it?

OK... this is going back a bit...

3 years ago I bought Genie stainless extractors, and Genie 2.5" mandrel bent stainless exhaust with 1 turbo flow muffler. It was $1000.00 all up (this was NOT trade price.)

In the last month I have done more exhaust mods....
I got Pacemaker... big bore extractors, in stainless with jethot coating. That was approx $550 (I paid less cos I sold the exhaust place my old Genie's).

I also got hi flow supercats, for $190 each. I got those cos they have a 2.5" opening, which is a little bit bigger than the red backs (2.25" opening)
