    just thought you guys would like to know if you are looking for a catback exhaust i have just ordered one from my local super cheap auto.

    $120 for the cat and center muffler section
    PART # AL5-5712

    $40 for the tail pipe section (no rear muffler)
    PART # T5713

    a 'c' clamp and freight and your going to be getting a cheap exhaust system, waiting on delivery which hopefully will be by next week :) Will also be doing an installation write up and with pics :)

    The centre section doesn't come with a cat. It bolts on behind the cat.

    So $160 for centre muffler and straight through pipe to the end?
    Where do you get this 'c' clamp you speak of?

    The 'c' clamp is the clamp that holds the tail pipe to the centre muffler.

    arrived friday and i must say really looks the part, hopefully will be on a hoist otherwise its the garage floor at the mechanics for me tommorrow :( and i already had a look, its all of 4 rubber mounts on the hangers and 2 bolts on the cat flange that need to be touched other than that its all going to bolt on no probs :) for anybody else doing it the workshop manual says to soap up the mounts so they slide on easy.

    so grand total price for me was $20 for use of hoist $3 for 2.5" c clamp (from exhaust joint) $16 for chrome tip + exhaust :) very happy also will get vid up tommorrow as i had to work and dont have one at day time

    17mm bolt at the cat
    13mm bolts at the c clamp
    a screw driver to unclip the 4 clips that hold on the rubber mounts, and it just works :)

    hey thanks for telling me about this, i went out n bought the parts, put it on on friday night
    havent stoped driving her around all weekend.

    i got mine from auto one and only payed $158 for it including a c clamp

    im not to sure but am i ment to put any sealant between the two joints because it was leaking alot of condensation through the connection. ill have to put it back on the ramp to see if i have it connected in fully
