LOL @ banarcus. Outside the engine I'm not fussed banarcus its the block, heads and internals I want Ford at the heart of my car.

Jeff I'll still be getting quotes with and without headers. If I can make another 5rwkw from a change of headers I will do it but for 1 or 2rwkw I won't bother.

Got another reply from APC.
I did ask for X-Force cats and hooker mufflers but he ignored that and went for this system.


Quote:
To build you a stainless steel twin system with magna flow cats and mufflers
with the magna flow X pipe it will cost you $1750
To build you the same system in mild steel with the magna flow mufflers and
cats and X pipe it will cost $1200

Yeah i had dramas with them too when getting quotes many years ago before i started using Dom.
Heard of alot of dramas people had with them too, all first hand no rumours.
If you really wanna try someone else try Lee up at Mindarie Exhaust Centre in Mindarie.

I think I'll just try Dom next. Hope he is back at work now.
Will have a chance tomorrow to go up and see him.
I'll let him know you recommended him.

I don't reckon we'll see 13s. I reckon a low 15 mid 14s tops.

Only cause I'm a crap driver.

I run how it the car is on the road too so I go with 38psi in the tyres 3/4 tank of 98.

If I take a second off my previous best of 15.8 I'll be a happy man and I'll think my money was well spent.

See if I set a low goal I never disappoint myself :lol:

Are you manual or auto Timmeh? I might try and come down this Wed too, as it's probably the last chance I get for a while.

That is a good way of thinking timmeh.

I tell you what though, with an aim of a 14.8 you wont be dissapointed.

I reckon to get 14.8, you'd probably NEED to miss 3rd a couple of times... :D
