As the title says, i got a 2.5 inch lukey, sounds awesome. Now just gotta save up for the extractors.
I noticed when sitting at the lights after i got it it seems to struggle a little with the idling. Is this normal and will the ecu re-adjust to suit? I think its sitting at about 600rpm (in drive mode)

with your idling, the ecu should adjust in a little while, but recomend you reset the ecu and let it relearn the new exhaust, this is the best and most efficient way to go abt it.

hey,

i installed a 2.5inch RedBack to my Ea. Its not really difficault.

1 - got to jack up the car really high
2 - remove the middle stage exhaust piping
3 - remove the last stage exhuast piping
4 - fit the new exhuast in reverse step

Its just a general idea, but when changing exhuast u may need to get new bolts and a new gasket.

For me, i did notice that i didn't need to step on the gas as much for the car to move. AND yes, i thought it sounded better. It was only like 1.5 weeks after i installed the exhuast i noticed that the car reved smoother and quicker when i floored it.

ALSO, i noticed better fuel economy.

Cheers
