a guy at work is getting a new exhaust on his xr8 and im thinking about taking his old one if its any better than what i have now.

just a few questions on it...
would there be much difference?
does it bolt straight on?

sorry both ba's

not sure if the xr8 headers would fit onto the 220 :| or is it just worth me taking his cats back?

would there be much of a difference, nicer tone or anything?

The XR8 exhaust would wake your 3V up nicely. Headers are different...only one exhaust valve means different shaped exhaust port. on the 3V.
Just get pacemaker 3V Tri-Y headers and join them up to the XR exhaust.

I would say that whoever does the exhaust fitting would(should) be able to utilise your existing cats...they'd have to adapt them to the extractors anyway.
BTW how much is the lowering job? We've been quoted $480 for 4 srpings and 4 wheel alignment for my wifes' XR6T.

Cheers,
Pete.

Are you expecting to just bolt it all on or do you have a welder, drop saw etc?
Why is going to cost $1100 to lower it!?!?!

Well I doubt it.
$1100... all I can say is "The leaves must be expensive!?"
Just out of interest what would a sedan cost at this place?

The leftover could just about pay for the fuel? :wink:
