The yella terra ones i'm talking about are only new, they're not on their web page yet. They're supposed to be a direct bolt on to the factory stuff. Well thats what the article said anyways...

I got bad suspision that the extractors sold to me by you know who arent kosha!!!

I had a good look today underneath and the pipes become very constricted at most turns.

Not a good thing trying to keep all that compression in.

Its like trying to hold a stinkin Fart in the lift, basically it slowly makes its way out, and god does it stink!!!:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

HERROD - had their headers (coated) and 2 into 1 stainless system fitted at 1100 km. What a difference!!!!

Have done long (400km) trips with no resonance problems.

These guys have it perfect!!

Forget the rest, go with Herrod. At 110 km/h cruising, very non intrusive, a rev's great tone. Decceleration in 'change down/engine braking ' mode gives great 'sucky burble'. Would rec this system to anyone who wants quality. Give them a call!

Just an update on my cars exhaust which started this post.
I ended up getting the single 2 1/2" straight thru Lukey for my 2 into 1 system.
Sounds great. Old style single system V8 sound. A bit of resonance in the car but nothing too obtrusive.What do I care...that's why I bought an 8 isn't it.
Very happy:cool:

Rastus; Yes I have a 3" and it does resonate abit in the cabin.I have been in another car with a more expensive & bigger, 3" s/steel muffler much much better.

D&T Performance.

Here's copy of an email i got from them about an exhaust for my car. I asked if that price included cats and was told my car already has twin cats and that the stock ones are pretty good. Their product looks good, but a bit too pricey for what you get in my opinion if it doesn't include cats... When i get the cash i'll be going the herrod system.

Guys, just wondering if any of you have heard of DT Performance (exhaust systems) in SA.............
Their website is http://www.dtperformance.com.au/falc6.htm
I don't know of anyone with a DT system but their systems do look like a real professional job.Expensive though:(
Myself and a guy from work talked to them (phone) a while back and got some prices. Apparently the send a lot of stuff O/S also.

The AU1 doesn't sound like these DOC. The 220 engines really sound superb with the big headers, cats and the twin system. If you maintain that it really DOES sound like a strangled chicken I'm quitting my job and applying for a job at a chicken abottoir ;) :nuts:

BTW - I found Berkley (spelling ?) straight through mufflers always gave me the nicest sound (inside and out) without being too loud. That was on my XW GT, XB GT (side pipes !!) and XD ESP. Don't know tho if they're still available.
