seem's pretty cheap. emailed him and asked him if he had pics and what the note of the exhaust sounded like. this is what he said

"It is brand new, once some one buys it I will order it from my supplyer, so sorry I can't send a photo, both my brothers hav them on thear cars it is a fearly deep note and does give the car abit more power. wade "

what you's think??

At that price,if he is genuine,grab it with both hands now.I suspect he is talking about extractors only-check up!

At that price,it would pay to investigate,as extractors alone are worth much more.

I paid $140 for my lukey exhaust from the cat back straight through pipe. It gives an awesome note and doesnt drone at all.

He's selling what it says, an exhaust system, not extractors.
It's not that cheap, i think mine was $160 for the 2.5 inch Lukey cat back with tail pipe.
They don't sound too bad either.

ohk, so maybe it would be best to inquire at my local exhaust shop and see how much their asking for one.

anyrthing better you can recommend than a lukey 2 1/2"?
3" too loud?

3" on n/a is prolly overkill. Too much air speed is lost, and the gases will escape slower.

Think of it like blowing threw a macca's straw, and compared to a postpac tube.

So a system is not the full exhaust? imho,it begins at the head,and ends beyond the rear bumper!

kwaussie - That's fairenough, and I kno where you're commin from mate.

But if someone says "exhaust", it'll just be a catback system.

Just the way things are listed or talked about. If someone refer's to extractors they'll be listed as "extractors / headers". :D

sorry, but the price isn't that good/amazing. It's about right for a just supplied system - speciually when you consider he has no holding costs since he hasn't ordered it yet.
If any of you were in Hobart I would supply the same thing to you through work for cheaper.

lol, dont i feel dumb, i just bought this dudes one last nite, he then explained to me just before that the "lukey" was on back order, but If i wanted one today(like I do) then he would give me a redback.

Claimed they were exactly the same, just one doesnt have lukey written on it. What a crock of s**t, I had redback, i dont want another.

So yeah, if anyone wants to buy through, be prepared to wait a week for the lukey.
