I didnt know you used Brian at Exhaust Innovations too mate. How good is his work?

Can I ask what the specs are of the exhaust?

http://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=62595&st=0 hey karl, pics of the exhaust and hot side piping artwork are on the first page of this thread at the bottom...

after seeing his work on your ute I wouldnt go anywhere else! he fabricated me a tig welded stainless 4 inch system with a 5 in cat and 2 mufflers, the last splitting to 2 3in dump pipes for the tip. he also did the 3 inch hotside piping and customed the process west airbox for the 5 inch inlet to the compressor. brians a straight up top bloke and ill be going back for the cage and 3.5 inch piping when I upgrade the turbo.

also on another note.. CHEERS BPS FOR f*ckING MY PAINT!!!! brake fluid dripped all over the bonnet and roof...will need a respray now! bloody wankers...

Its good to hear something is happening & you can finally drive it mate, but as ive found out time & time again there will always be something. Have fun putting those braided hoses on there abit tight initially but be patient they will go on the only problem is once you do them you'll want them all done.

yeah I spent about 3-4 hours putting them on last weekend, cut my hands up pretty bad haha. and you cant get the anodised clamp covers on most of the hoses...all good though, I just wanted them for the back otherwise the stock ones would melt.

had BIG dramas....blew oil pump, so stripped motor, found the motor had standard head, no head or main studs....so I suspect some bloody poor service has stolen parts from motor.....anyways should haveit back next week AGAIN...will have full stage 4 head, 7 axis cnc port job, 300 degree stage 5 cams, inconel valves, titanium retainers, nascar walve springs etc etc...going to put m&w cdi with mercury outboard coil packs, still waiting on wheels...had the converter loosened to 3000rpm, last time was taking off like a bus until boost...so hopefully will be off tap now, hows yours brandon?

Ok, I have been reading this thread from the beginning and its a long hard read :beerchug: . Frankly I am amazed at what you have been through :hammerhead: and feel for you and reckon you are a champ for how you have taken this. :spoton:

It has been over a year, you have been through a serious amount of dough :facepalm: , been fed so many lies :op: that it is nothing short of rediculous... would you do it again? Is the result worth it?

Good to hear things are finally on there way up Quinn. Can't wait to see how you go I'm sure it'll be really impressive.

Mines being done this week as well, how about a race to 600, maybe abit adventurous lol. Any idea on how you want them to set up your daily tunes?

theres too many sh*tbags in this industry, unfortunately bloody poor service arent the only ones. word of mouth gets them in the end. your complaints on here will have cost them many, many jobs, which is sweet revenge. good luck with your results mate, the whole forum will breath a sigh of relief for you when its over and your enjoying your car.
