Difilippo exhaust systems any good?

Just wondering what the complete difilippo systems are like for the AU V8. I am after something nice and loud for my AU. You can check out the system on http://www.darrendifilippo.com.au/ford_sys.html

Re: Difilippo exhaust systems any good?

I have only heard good things about them. Suppose to be loud but not over the top. Do you know the cost of them? Also worth looking at the new lukey 3" V8 supersystems. I have one and think it sounds great, very similar design to the difilippo system, and very well priced.

it sounds awsome and gave me a noticable power increase thruout the rev range, and it is a little loud, but not too over the top

Re: Difilippo exhaust systems any good?

what are the advantages of having a single 3" over say, a twin 2.5" or 2.25"?

Re: Difilippo exhaust systems any good?

philstoj,

Do you mind me asking how much the 3" ute system set you back..?

I want to replace the stock, inaudible, inoffensive exhaust on my AU XR8 ute and like the sound of the Defillipo systems (I am hoping they are a bit cheaper than the Herrod Motorsport systems)

Cheers,
David Thomson

Re: Difilippo exhaust systems any good?

You will find that Defillipo is selling a Herrod Designed Exhaust for both the AU and BA.

Defillipo may be making them but trust me when I say that Rob Herrod paid for their design and jig.

Anyhows, prob best to shop around and get the price that suits u

Re: Difilippo exhaust systems any good?

Thanks guys, I am guessing the difference in price you have both quoted are based on different options SS vs mild steel, different mufflers etc...

I will get off my arse and ring a few places for quotes : )
