So my 2.5" stainless Xforce exhaust showed up today - I wish I could be happy about it but that's not the case. I'll let the photo's do the talking

The whole exhaust seems like it's hanging way too close to the car, the rear muffler hangers don't match up at all either. What gives?

Had EXACTLY the same issues with my Xforce system on a VY sedan.

I had to bend the mounts on the car to suit. Dodgy as.
Dislike them allot.

I have also noticed that my mates cars that have xforce exhaust have aligning problems. Particularly the tips at the back hanging low and to one side

Along away, I opend the door and swung off the sill to kick it to one side, and the used a 4ft pry bar to bend it down.
Biggest HEAP OF **** system I've ever seen.

I've been pretty vocal over the poor quality for a while. Suprised you havent seen my rants :p

Considering Pacemaker charge $650 for a cat back system, it makes me wonder how Xforce can justify selling their heaps of **** for what they do...

I read that it sounded Like a riced up honda with it's balls dipped in curry somewhere...

I really wanted the pacemaker stainless system, but they don't make it to fit Maloo's so I thought I'd give this piece of **** exhaust system a go - I should have just bitten the bullet and gone Difilippo.

Looks like I'll be the one swinging off a bar tomorrow afternoon.

Thats who I got my Pacemaker system through. They're a good mob. They should come to the party.
