Hey guys,so as the title says,after cat & exhaust change it only made the inlet manifold leak much worse,so ordered some fg inlet manifold gasket kit and a new fg cold side heater pipe and used the fg manifold from the xg + K & N panel filter and got to work on making it all good,working well so far smooth low idle (compared to nearly 1500 rpm with the leaky ba bbm) very nice throttle response.

Thought I'd take a vid of what it sounds like with the pacies/venom cat/middle delete pipe and rear redback sports muffler before I add a middle redback muffler,will do one after too.

Hey guys,the ba engine has adapted well to the mods so far (the more I drive it the better it gets) although its not possible to get the full potential from what I've done so far without a tune-it does make me wonder how the engine would react to using the E-flex E85 set up as it is now.
Anyone got some input on the E-flex with similar mods?

That's very good mate. I doubt I will be doing anything similar any time soon as my BA eng is too old.

Thanks Papa smurf,the fg manifold really unlocks the potential of the barra-really nice to drive now.
You mentioned before you were going to lower your BA,Im wanting to do the same but don't want to go to low-so I'm thinking maybe just lowering it to XR spec with some good shocks-any advice papa smurf?

Cheers Johnny.
