Re: Exhaust shops in MELB
Rare for Barney to stuff it. I've seen quite a few sets of custom headers made by Barney. He's even modified my extractors.
Yes he's still in business, Barney works out of Hallam Performance. My XB's system is a 12mth old Barney's Exhaust's exhaust.
2 1/4" if it's a very mild V8 and trying to keep semi legal. Which yours aint :)
2 1/2" with balance pipe should waken it up nicely. A set of 4-1's wouldn't hurt either.
With that cam I personally wouldn't change the manifold. As it'd soften the low down, which would require more rpm.
Your next step single plane wise would be a Weiand Xcellerator.
Also if your cars an auto? It'd be very fast with a 3000rpm histall and 3.7 gears in the bum. <--Prefered setup for strip. Should blow off my current best 1/4 time or get damn close.
I did think of another exhaust place. There is a new place opened up in Amberley Ave Dandenong. They do street/strip systems etc. Quite a few nice cars in there when I last looked. Might be worth a try? Feed back would be appreciated if you do?
 Forgot to add your borderline on requiring an electric fuel pump. To keep up with the fuel supply. Mechanical pumps only cope to about 5800.
