Unbelievable delivery time. Ordered it 10:30am it arrived 9:30am the next morning! Got in the garage, opened the box and what a lovely, top quality unit. All polished stainless, with black paint on the welded bits, turned out to be a sinch to fit.
Undo the two flange bolts and bang off the rust and the joint falls apart. Stanley knife the old rubbers as new ones come with the kit, the whole plot drops on the floor and chuck it in the bin (this can almost be done without jacking the car up). I reversed the car up onto some 4" x 2" wooden blocks, take the new rubbers, spit on the hole and work them over the car chassis hangers, no sweat. Then offer the box up and it all slides on, bolts up tight with a nice gasket (supplied), it even hung straight first time. The rubbers afford you about an inch of side to side adjustment to line it up centre.
The left hand tube doesn't actually touch the valance, but is too close for comfort, so with the right one hanging exactly in it's cut out, simply slice a 1" half moon out above the left pipe and the job's a goodun!
Nice, mellow deep tone, and a lot rortier on pull away, can't say I noticed any horse power gain, but without doubt, the car revs far more smoothly and effortlessly right round to the red line; so you use the available power more freely. Still running on standard induction (for now!) and I still noticed it made it far more driveable and the temptation to floor it is just too much to ignore...
Top quality kit, childs play to fit and cheap as chips, bargain hunters!
