well in all fairness the Wangara one is the only decent TTF that ive come across....

i went to 3 places before them and got quoted $330-$335-$345 for 2.5" from cat back (with CHROME tip) they all used bolt on exhausts with standard central muffler, now the fact they were trying to sell me chrome tips was a turn off, peels and flakes etc, they said 30 minutes to do the job

Went accross the road to TTF, got quoted $310 with my choice of STAINLESS STEEL tip, choice of Soft Medium or Loud muffler and they make and bend the exhaust on the spot to work best with your particular car, takes them 2-3 hours but well worth it.

But i can see why you all hate TTF, the Wangara one was the only decent one i found and was so much better then any other exhaust and tyre place. however other TTF's like Balcatta etc are just dog s**t. It all depends on who owns that particular store. As they are all privately owned...

If they bent it up there, you got yourself a pressbent exhaust.
The other guys would have been using an off-the-shelf mandrel bent system.
Mandrel bends keep the pipe diameter through the bend, flow much better.
But I doubt they actually bent you up a system there.
A 'custom' exhaust is a favourite of guys trying to flog exhausts.
Custom does not always equal good.
