After putting it off for the last 4 years ive finally got around to ordering my Pacemaker comp headers, got em installed today. However just a few things which the guys missed, but will get it sorted out soon, im gonna have to buy a new exhaust tip, and the exhaust itself is sitting crooked at the back for some reason.. :?:

Also i think ill get my hotdog removed and just go back to Muffler+Cat its very quiet compared to what it was before but on the other hand i have no drone what so ever which is great! the old 1600-1800rpm and 3000rpm drone is now a lumpy growl.

But the performance was the biggest surprise!! :mrgreen: Its soo good, once ive got my intake sorted and a decent dyno tune etc. ill repost my rwkw figures.

Just thought id let everyone know :mrgreen:

Well, got the exhaust sorted, dunno why but the piping seems to be pretty nackered, found out it was mild steel...so the rear exhaust piping has just about had it. didnt remove the hotdog as i have decided to replace the whole system from cat back. Looking at a full stainless steel system with one muffler mabe a resy or a hotdog but at this pointwill just see how it goes.

So that will be happening next week hopefully, not sure what im going for thinking either X force or lukey atm. But either way it will be stainless steel and 2.5' mandrel bent. :roll: ugh more monies. Thats $1600 in last 2 weeks ive spent on her lol. :(

Yeah one reason im getting stainless steel is 90% of my driving is all short trips, so if i get another mild steel cat back exhaust it will just rust out again like my one i have now.

Just called the guys at Di Fillipo and i can get a (mild steel) cat back exhaust for $480 + freight which would be another 100 mabe to get it down here. Or The stainless steel for roughly double that price.. :P

Nice Di Fillipo have quality stuff so you wont be dissapointed. With the intake pipe $400 is alot check out my pics and see what i did. I got it made for $120 and i already had the EL intake bend. You could just go down to a wreckers and grab one. Its pretty cheap and works well.

Yeah i already have the bend as well (brand newie sitting in the shed), but im looking at something alot more professional looking, and something that will dess-up the engine bay as well. im gonna scrap the idea of the Sequential scoop, but looking to make a modified airbox & pod heat guard. not sure how yet but ill think of something. :roll:

Thanks for the replies thou!

With a freighted price of over $1000 just to get a stainless cat back system and not inc fitting :shock: . i think i mite opt for a di fillipo mild steel cat back system. im pretty sure id be happy with something like that. :)

No worries, i'm pretty sure they will both work the same, just the stainless will last longer. You can let the next person who buys your car worry about it. :P
