Pipes redirected today, general engine tidyup, odds and sods slowly sorted, getting there, outside still looks battered but the rest is starting to preform well.

That's a bugger with the idle sound, BUT if it sounds better at revs that should keep you happy. Very Happy Very Happy

QLD we're not allowed to dump before the axle... essentially must remain along the original system route. had my pipe brought to the side behind the axle justified because the exhaust fume issue.

lookin good groover.

i remember getting pulled over by the RTA and noise tested for Db level. i got 92Db and the rule was to put the mic 3 metres from the rear of the vehicle and rev and hold at 3000 rpm. my pipes were out the sides so they didnt get a true reading. i think alot has changed but nice headers straight thru mufflers,1 bend and out the sides made alot of noise.
