3" Exhaust Mods for AU3 XR8

I have just got my AU3 XR8 upgraded to a 3" system. BLOODY BRILLIANT!! :s2: :s2: :s2:

Brilliant sound. Just what I wanted. The engineer found that it "boomed" too much with the normal small resonator he uses on 5.7l engines, so he fitted a Kobi resonator and all is sweet.

Here is the Dyno graph of the results.



Here are the shots of the exhaust.

Yeah, we still have the standard extractors too.

Any other mods planned?

It's a custom job by Torque Performance here in Auckland. Built as a result of years of experience with the Windsor engine and what different customers want out of an exhaust upgrade basically.
