for an inline 6 engine, jsut a waste of time, as it all goes into a single pipe first, so just put a duel tip exhaust if that gets your joleys. and because of teh fuel tank you can't have a pipe on either side.

If its a V8 it will be roughly around the $2000 mark.

It was for mine. I was quoted only $300 difference between mild steel and stainless so I would go stainless if you get a similar quote. The quote included Pacemaker headers, stainless tip, cats and all labour.

I guess the headers arn't stainless in yours Timmy. And just for your info he's posted this in the '6 Cylinder Workshop', safe to assume it ain't a V8...

Timmeh had a thread asking the same questions a couple months ago... and about exhausts in Perth - do a search for that thread.

Full twin exhaust you are looking at $2k like he said anyway... and thats cheap!

wouldn't cost anywhere near $2000 if your just after looks and a note. Just change the muffler and get a chrome tip.
