Puff or someone, what is exact size bf twin exhaust (ID and OD). I was told by an 'expert' today its 2.375 (60mm)? I actually hope it is if its bigger. Thanks.    

 

You want the stocker ay?

 

Edit: It's twin 2.25 anyhow as has been mentioned on the forum before. I measured the OD just then and it is a touch over 2.25. I couldn't get a good read of the ID cos 1) it's dark af and awkward to hold a torch, exhaust and calipers at the same time and 2) the welds on the flanges step it down to very close to 2 inches.

Thanks puff you are a champ. Yea I was a little suss on this guy he is well respected up here though. Didn't know the difference with BF cat ect. Funny thing was it wasn't in his catalog either. It showed the BA twin cat under BF.

So yea, got a $200 quote on the phone and $550 when I dropped in. I thought it was bad when I said I had a V8 now its insane at the mention of turbo. So that's $700 for an actuator install lol, $550 for basically a cat and some pipe in the same week. Don't think so, going somewhere else.

I got the tuner down $500 off quote as well. It must of sucked in the heyday with these things. Thanks again.

No probs mate. 

 

Just cos someone is a tuner doesn't mean they are any good. A bit of boost makes anything fast and will fool most people who turn up.

ok, let me clear that up my tuner isn't the exhaust or actuator guy. I bought the car with a 14psi tune in it done by a sydney tuner. When I called that tuner he told me it had been tuned to a manual boost controller hmmm. This is well known tuner. Anyway, actuator is dying as well but it has 1000cc injectors, cooler, pump and some other stuff I did so see what happens.

Edit: Or other aftermarket controller?

The fun continues, I can get my cat for $170 but the 'new' exhaust guy can only get it for $190. Funny thing is he won't get it for me unless he charges $250 + labour. But its ok if I get it he will only charge labour which I have as a quoted price :headbeat:

 

I know it changed a long time ago but why do we have to pay retail on parts plus labour anyway its all turned to :pooh:
