Got my Herrod Exhaust fitted today

A big thank you to the guys at Herrods and Gregory's Ford in Bradden for fitting the exhaust today.

Loved every minute of the drive back to Sydney and the bulge in the car had nothing to do with the bonnet (after all, it is a Turbo).

This is my second car with a Herrod stainless system and I'm sure it won't be the last.

I don't know what power I've pick up. I'd like to get it on a dyno now. For the XR6T they are only doing a Cat back exhaust. So you aren't looking at a great gain. Typically you are only looking at around 10 rwkw.

This system fits XR6Ts, XR8s and GT/Ps. In fact, mine came off a GTP as I bought it second hand. He drove past me as I was stopped at the lights going to the dealer and it sounded great on the Boss290.

For the Stainless system, Herrod will supply and fit for $1300, Ford dealers add another $100 - $200.

I had a full Herrod Stainless Steel System on my AUII XR6. Extractors, large cat and 2.5" exhaust. The gains with that was fantastic. The mid range torque I pick up really transformed the car, and the engine note was something else.

I don't think I have much choice. The tips are welded on and I don't think I could get a single oval tip similar to the standard one that would fit over the twins.

The tips are larger than I thought they would be.

theyre always welded on, they usually just cut it back down the pipe a little bit and put a new piece on with the tip on it

Usually it's just a tack weld, these are fully welded on.
