Exhausted in Brisbane

I have a stock AU 5.0L and want to go twin... can anyone recommend a good exhaust place in Brisbane that really knows what they're doing enough to give me what I want (not what they want to sell), can get it right and all at a good price?

Re: Exhausted in Brisbane

Re: Exhausted in Brisbane

I've had quite a bit of work done at a shop that does custom exhaust systems at Salisbury. Rick is the owner, and he's named the shop probably the least flattering name I can imagine....

Cut Price Mufflers !!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm taking my AU 5.0 ute to him on Friday. I'm leaving the exhaust manifolds for now, just getting him to replace the mufflers and go for a larger single system. Personal preference, but I like the note of single systems better than dual. In any case, I'll let you know how it goes. If it breathes a bit better, and sounds a bit better - great ! I'm not expecting to made any substantial power gains - it's more for the sound. Of course, I'm justifying it by saying that I'll probably get better fuel economy from the better breathing system

Re: Exhausted in Brisbane

Thanks Q777... it sounds familiar, I may have passed it a few times. I'd be interested to hear how you go. I may even drop in to see Rick on Saturday (if he's open).

Re: Exhausted in Brisbane

He's on the corner of Granard and Beaudesert Roads. Easiest if you go outbound on Beaudesert road - he's the last shop before the intersection. Tell him you were talking to Craig with the Cobra. May or may not get you a discount, but it's worth a try !

Re: Exhausted in Brisbane

Don't Go !

I dropped in to see Rick today, and he's sold his share of the business. He's only doing radical custom work now, so he won't be available to help you with your system.

Sorry for the dodgy information. I hadn't spoken to Rick for a couple of months....

Re: Exhausted in Brisbane

Thanks for the heads up Q777. I had planned to go over tomorrow but will just have to go to Bunnings instead (damn it). Good luck with your system mate... who are you going to get to do it now?

Re: Exhausted in Brisbane

Ummmm.... I'm going to try a friend who owns a truck exhaust shop. He's supplied me with heaps of material for other projects, and has always done great deals for me. I'll let you know what I come up with.

Sounds weird to go to a truck shop, but his guys do excellent welding, and he sells the full range of exhaust products. See what happens!
