Just having a bit of a think here when i saw this pic:

Do you reckon if you got a set of common redback extractors, cut off the extra piping after the 3-1 joiner and whacked turbos on there, would the extractor piping start to sag after a while due to the heat?

as long as you had the exhaust system brace and the extractor pipes wernt thin walled then it should be fine.
would be better if they where atleast 3mm thick walls

yea didn't think that'd fit in a commodore, maybe moving the engine forward but waste of time losing handling etc, its looks very good though nice an symmetrical
