DJR duel exhaust

I was down at Herrods the other day to get prices on a few mods for my BA GT, I was asking about a full exhaust system for it, as i have one on my BA XR6, Jeff told me that he could sell me the same set up as the DJR car ( Full exhaust only ) for $3600 = 2.5" stainless, HI flow cats, with duel twin tips. Who needs a DJR car when they will sell u all the parts to have it done to your own BA XR8, GT or GT-P

Re: DJR duel exhaust

I had a good look at it as they had one up on the hoist, I'm a welder by trade and i can tell u that i would pay $3600 for it. It wouldn't be worth getting some one to make it up, with all the f***ing around needed to do the job right, you may save some $$$$ but loose the quality. Then again in paying $6800 for 2 piece Brembo brakes 355x32 fronts & 330x28 rears.

Re: DJR duel exhaust

Shane.

You must have more money than sense. I can't justify that amount on any exhaust. I have built a few over the years, all in stainless, mandrel bends, and if I were to build one for someone...(if I could be bothered) there is no way I would charge any where near that amount. From headers back including cats, it's no more than a days work, and maybe $300 dollars of material (excluding cats)!
BUT, I suppose it's your money!!!!!

Herrods exhausts are suppossed to be very good. Everyone raves about his exhausts. I heard there is a substantial gain in KW. Anyway, the guys that can afford to buy a GT's, run it and maintain it can afford these systems.

Did that include modifications to the rear bumber for the dual pipes cut out?

Re: DJR duel exhaust

Herrod certainly knows he's on a good wicket when his customers actually take pride in paying ridiculous amounts for rebadged products.

Re: DJR duel exhaust

A piece of pipe is a piece of pipe. There is no magic to it. The only thing that sets exhausts systems apart is the design and workmanship.

From what I hear Herrod's design and workmanship are excellent.... so yeh you'd expect to pay a "bit" more.

But I still think over 3 grand for a set of pipes is a bit dear....
