The 3 inch system is louder in the cab but i'll sort that out soon.
Car is more responsive,revs quicker and more importantly uses less fuel at low loads.It definitely needed a bigger pipe.
The auto is a bit confused now but doing a 300K round trip tomorrow should sort it's poor little brain out.
Dyno time will help as well.

Wrapped the 3 inch from the flange to back behind the CAT,it's quieter in the cab but not quiet enough.
The new exhaust is more fuel efficient when cruising country roads and stuff,but fhe auto is a pain in town on and off the gas.
I use the auto like a stick shift and it's way better than letting the box try and figure out what gear it wants to be in.

As you guys know i've dynoed the ute.
Since then i've opened up the low pressure area around the pod filter and vented air to this as well as the supercharger .Have also reset the FPR and achieved a better AFR under load but the ECU works it out after a little while and restores it to 12ish.
Also found a leak in the inlet where the join to the TB is,i went looking as i was supposed to have 10psi at 5500 when i had 9.2psi.
So now i think i'll go to a 12lb pulley to promote the power/tractive force thing.
It's all good.

Updates.
Have serviced the auto and tricked up the S5 for a firmer upshifts.Will find an electronic solution for the downshift.
Have stuck a 5/8 hose and filter to the inlet on the supercharger where the head breather usually goes,a little more air gets in.
Got my Blitsbodykits GT front bar,got it painted and put it on looks mickey-mouse.
www.blitsbodykits.com.au top shelf stuff.
PC is still menstrual so no pics yet.

This is the BA to keep an eye on, we might have been scammed once Cooky but NOT twice. No not twice, not ever again! :D :D

I hear ya it took us a week or so but we worked it out.
They don't like us DIY guys as we don't line their pockets.

Fitted a shroud /cover to direct air to cool the Supercharger and hot air away from it.Also i hooked up the gearbox fan for the Supercharger and getting cooler temp readings.
I have a test hill that i was topping at late 130's to 140,i now top it at low 150's or late 140's so something is working,was a few degrees warmer as well today.
It's all good,as the water/meth should turn up this week.
