Herrod I6 Exhaust System

Herrods was a quick blat up the ring road from my cousins place, so that was handy, not far from the Hume heading into Melbourne for those who might venture down for some work. :D It's a fantastic workshop, here's a shot from the outside.

Due to the guys visiting Bathurst, the place was not busy as usual, so straight onto the hoist.

Before you ask 'what's the yellow blurred thing', it's not something you're supposed to see until the Sydney Motor Show so you'll have to wait until you see it properly. Sufice to say, it's very very nice, especially the wheels. :D

After a small delay waiting for the high flow cat, the exhaust was fitted by Ashley who works part time for Glenn Seton, taken for a fang by Rob to pick up some parts (used in the blurred yellow thing) then dynoed by Rob.

Here's the result! About 123kW stock (with the bigger XR8/T-series snorkel) and about 136kW after the headers/exhaust fitted without any ECU learning. Since these are simply numbers, they fail to indicate that the car is now much better to drive, and sounds like an XR6 should!

Good questions Nip, but unfortunately, questions I didn't ask! Perhaps Rob can answer them here, or maybe minge knows from his visits?

Since it's already been shown in other threads/urls, the yellow blurred sitting next to my car is the yellow Cobra RA convertible.
