Exhaust question

Hi all,
considering buying a 3inch catback system for mr BA XR8, what i need to know is this, is a 3inch system too big my XR8? Or should i go for something smaller?

This is off an xr6 too, also, are there any recorded problems with changing to this exhaust etc..

Cheers
Jim

Re: Exhaust question

3inch is about perfect for an xr8 any smaller and it will be restrictive

Re: Exhaust question

Yep, all done and sounding sweet:) The only hassle is i have to buy a couple of proper exhaust nuts and bolts as the original ford ones are crazy and wont fit, the ones i have on it will do till tomorrow untill i call into a shop and get some that fit right.

Apart from that, its great:) But the rain is stopping me from opening it right up:(

Thanks for the top dollar sale jamie....good stuff and completely happy:)

Cheers
Jim

That's good to hear. I hate selling things as I always worry that the buyer won't be happy as I've been stuffed around myself a few times.

I know it made mine sound sweet. I can't wait to get the new system to get a bit of noise back.
