Some time after uni exams, when it suits Tim I guess as I'll be on 3 1/2 months holiday! :D And yes we definately will have a cruise. But first thing on my list to do in Sydney is get the LPG done (GRA underbonnet kit) - fuzion seems to recomend Cresent Motorsports.

How are the Lukey ultraflow's constructed?

Are they a straight through design or offset or chambered?

there a straight through design. can get them with center to center inlet and outlet, center to offset, offset to offset. the standard ultra flow is mild? steel, but can get them in stainless too - the stainless ones are the pretty looking ones!

Mmmm, not in in my 18 years of running LPG in 3 cars from an XF, ED to my current EL. The XF probably ran close to 250,000 km on one exhaust system. My rule of thumb is that LPG usually increases the longevity of exhaust systems.
