errr farily sure with pacies (and probably others) that due to them being longer that the standard headers (longer overall pipe length) that the cat has to move from its standard location.

Yeah the extractors a longer, but moving the cat back even further, helps. Dunno what the reasoning is, but they've got before after dynos and it makes a small (2-3KW) difference.

I'm yet to redyno mine.

fusion i reckon ur tips look pretty sweet, im looking at getting dual tips when i can find an exhaust fitter who aint lazy and will cut the rear bumper (properly), and im gunna ask 'em if they can have them protruding a bit (like yours) from the rear bumper, i reckon it looks sweet as...i emailed joe@crescent and he gave me a good price compared to others, for pacemaker comps and 2.5" mandrel bent, although i gotta ask him about a dual tip now....lets hope he can do it, if he can he's got my business...

wot ya gotta remember when ya get things for cheap is that, the cheaper they are the cheaper the quality of product, and not just that, but there is so much competition these days between company's and franchises and stand alone businesses that prices can only go so low do u cost of parts/products to the fitters, i personally think for a decent exhaust with extractors and without a high flow cat u will be paying $900++

$900 was what I was quoted, then the FM discount dropped it to $840.

Not always the case mate, I mean the quality of my Lukey exhaust and pacey extractors is gunna be the same weather I pay 800 from Moonah Mufflers, or $1,500 at Exhuast and Suspension, as it's the same product. Price doesn't always reflect quality, speicially when the items made elsewere and is the same product - just oen place is trying to rip me off.
