Ring Highpoint Exhaust (right next to Highpoint S/Centre) - 93186688 ask for Stat.

He did my XR and I'm more than happy with it.

LOL i just have a stock exhaust system atm, the resonator has been removed and the exhuast still sounds bloody awesome. Makes as much noise as an aftermarket exhaust too.

No drone either :wink:

EF XR6's came factory with a 2.5 pipe so yeah. But i will upgrade.....eventually.

Extractors should cost ne where between $300 and $800 for a reasonable brand. Get them done with a ceramic finish too :wink:

Eb series 1 1992.

Just replaces the stock (and completely rusted out) exhaust with a 2.5 redback with the single muffler in the middle, no muffler on the tail pipe. I also replaced the cat as when I got under there I noticed two massive gashes in it. I replaced it in order to get a rwc as the old exhaust was ruined.

I want to chuck some headers on there now. Do I have to weld the headers to the cat? Or does it bolt right on. Looking at some pics on ebay it looks like the pipe from the headers will extend right past where the cat hangs. I plan on putting it on myself so yeah, was hoping i could avoid welds.

Cheers

Sorry to ask again. Maybe my post was too much to bother reading. Will I have to Weld extractors to my cat converter or do they just used the same bolt pattern?
