    super suprused the pacemaker fits up to the dpe exhaust, its gunna sound amazing btw,
    what cats are they, are they the dpe ones or pacemaker ones, the reason i ask is that the dpe headers have a longer collecter then the pacemaker ones so im hoping she fits up nicely!

    You're right the Pacemakers are shorter, I found out when I was bolting the catback on and measuring. Just took it to a local exhaust place and they extended the cats by 200mmish, all bolted up nicely. No engine light either.

    and it sounds INSANE, has an old school sound to it despite not having old school lumpyness. but its soo deep which is great, super happy :D

    Ill try get a quality mic so I can do a sound test for yous

    I was expecting the O2 sensor code sometime and it arrived today, so gotta get a tune now. Any places in Adelaide that do tunes? can't afford dyno yet

    Runs fine and gets the same fuel economy so doesn't matter for the time being

    some recent pics, still haven't done paint correction... my DA polisher broke :/

    loving the exhaust more and more each day, sounds F#cking insane! couldn't be happier

    [​IMG]

    here is the tips, yes they aren't aligned correctly but had dramas getting them on. The DPE tips don't even fit on the DPE muffler.. had to use shims so they would stay on.

    getting a lot of positive compliments from neighbors and random people at the shops, always seeing people at the traffic lights checking it out. Really makes peoples heads turn :)

    i had my tips completely cut off and rewelded as miss aligned/to long tips drive me nuts.
    You can always get an exhaust shop to move your tips as i dont think moving the muffler will fix it. Resized_20170730_174640_2138.jpeg

    So saw this is FB this morning, nice to know our "public servants" are doing their job well. I have never respected police or the government and here's a reason why
