Re: Herrod Exhaust for XR8 - Who has had one fitted
Dear maartes -
Just got my 2002 AU3 XR8 back from Brad Garlic Ford in Sydney - Had the full front to back herrod installed. The guys at BG were great. They had time to talk and explain to you and appeared to have done an excelent job - No, it is not one of the cheaper items to buy, but it certainly makes a difference to the sound.
Only had it back a few days now, so still learing the differences between the old and the new. One thing I did notice was the area in the 2 - 2.5K area as you lightly step on the loud pedal (I have been told that it is possible to tread softly on this one), then you hear a sucking / gurgling noise... not sure if this is the norm or further investigation needed on my part...
Perhaps I will have to visit my mates at Brad Galic again, and ask them if this sound is the norm under these driving conditions. Let us know if / when you decide......
