Herrod Exhaust vs D&T Exhaust

I want to get a stainless steel cats back exhaust system for my AU XR8, and I have narrowed my choices down to a Herrod dual 2.5 inch system with the X pipe (installed by Maughan Thiem Ford Adelaide) or the D&T Performance dual 2 1/4 inch system.

They both claim I will get ~10 rwkw from their systems and D&T Performance will dyno the car before and after. Both systems are similar in price, so thats not a factor.

I would like to know if anyone has any of these systems installed on their car, and what they think about the sound, performance and quality of the system.

Thanks!

Re: Herrod Exhaust vs D&T Exhaust

This is the system Herrod designed for the T series, IMO I would go for the Herrod one,if it's S/S you are after than you will have no problem's or quality issue's and the sound is awsome.

Re: Herrod Exhaust vs D&T Exhaust

I own an au2 xr8 ute, i bought a dual 2 1/4 inch system from d&t, they also told me i would gain around 10kw. I had my car dynoed before and after but i lost 6kw with d&t's system compared to the ford factory exhaust. I live in newcastle and if i was sure id get my money back i would post it back to them.

That's interesting, have you done any other mod's to your vehicle,if not maybe the exhaust is to big for the engine.

I definetely do not hink that the exhaust is too big for the engine.
2 1/4 should be perfect for a stock car.
If later mods are anticipated I suggest a 2 1/2.(must have X pipe)

I have a cat back dual 2 1/2 meeting at the diff into a single 3" in my 220kw TS50, the sound is very crisp, and no booming at all, I will never change it.
