WOW! Looks/sounds brill 8) . Is there a flexi section in there just after the 2-1 on the systen Phil, or is it the camera angle/arty filming technique/stainless surface finish?

I dont know if it showed up on the pics I sent you of my system but my (comparitively small) centre box is ramped at the front edge in order to avoid any sticky-uppy manhole covers etc finding a bit of purchase and doing nasties to the exhaust.Not such an issue on a track/drift car though.

Still in two minds as to which manifold to go for........ :)

Didn't promise the video was any good, it may have been filmed with a potato peeler.

No flex sections Richard, we decided agianst them for longevity and simplicity.

Yes, fitting the ramp / skid plates to the silencer is a good idea, and shall be done.

I'm waiting on the frim price for manifold / downpipe for you.

Pjil typo Phil, no not Icelandic cousin, probably Norwegian :-)

too much for my use tho and I reckon SWAMBO would object to the modifying the inner wing, as she has been rather attached to it and don't want to rock the boat!
