So does GTSR
So excited. I’ve always loved the colour but it’s been soo hard to find.
Nice one cuda, out of interest do the 340 headers have a better port match to the heads than the stock cast ones?
Good to know.
Yes, they match the ports nicely.
@426Cuda have you tried any different mufflers with this setup? Got my HSV headers, 100 cell hi-flow cats and hsv mid section fitted up yesterday. Sounds pretty good with the bi-modal mufflers was just wondering what else people have tried and how it sounds.
I'm glad you like it. I've been advocating this as a cheap upgrade for years. Mainky because it's cheap, I'm a tight arse and it works. Coupled with a tune it makes great torque. and sounds good. Even on AFM cars IMO.
Re you Q: I've had the following fitted to same as your setup, only 200cpi cats:
1. J pipes - far too loud and a bit of a flame thrower;
2. Marriage savers ( had supplier modify the J pipes). Still too loud and a bit raspy. I must be getting old;
3. VE GTS bi-modal mufflers. Nice sound, but ill fitting; and
4. AFM mufflers. Quieter than HSV & Holden bi-modals.
I've been running the Holden bi-modals for about 18 months now. But I'm thinking of swapping back to the AFM's, only because the bi-modal electrics are not connected and I want a quieter note at times. Particularly morning start ups and spirited driving. The current set up turns heads on cue with my right foot. Not ideal and I'm not a narcissist.
Hey @426Cuda can you post up a video/ sound clip for your set up?
I have the same set up on the mistress but have standard cats at the moment and want get a cam, OTR, 200cell high flows cats and a tune.
I like the sound a lot at the moment just what a little bit louder.
Thanks for that Cuda. I might try the bi-modal relay back in and see how it goes. It may just be the fact I'm looking for a different note that i won't get with this setup. Or i wonder how walkinshaw mufflers would sound bolted on?....

Sorry I'm an infrequent visitor these days. The older I get, the busier I seem...
Here you go. Both cars have the same system, but for the cats. HSV 340 cats on the Motorpsort, magnaflow 200cpi cats on the redline. Quite different notes. Their both cold starts so didn't want to rev them up. But as you can hear, the Redline is far louder.
what size pipes are you matching this all up to? and what catback that makes j-pipes "too loud"??
Mine always sounds a lot more cammy on cold start. I dont know how to word it but almost a splutter.

Does anyone know the part number for the front 2 piece brake rotors on the MSE? (either GM or Brembo)
Mine will be due for replacement in the next few months and I want to shop around for some prices.
Talk to DBA i reckon. they do 2 piece rotors for your brake setup dba52604gldxs. Pricey but good quality
^ link didn’t work for me
here are all DBA brake rotors and parts for VF2 redlines.
here are the DBA two piece brake rotors for VF2 redlines
hopefully these links work
Part # 92508501.
General MSE (and probably LE) query: Anyone else suffered premature wear of disc brake rotors (pads fine) - below minimum thickness at 38,000km? Anyone noticed how the whole interior "creaks" over bumps and angles suggesting the entire unibody is flexing? Anybody developed valvetrain noise despite the rocker arm recall (especially audible when cold)?
There are multiple topics here about cold start noise i.e. rattling noise. It is excess piston to bore clearance. If really bad holden should address it. In my case they replaced the engine.
