All slotted together great..a breeze to fit. You have to make a hanger for the nearside backbox..i happened to have a bit of m12 stainless threaded bar that worked a treat. All in all took about 3 hours.

Sounds very nice, actually quieter at low revs than my old standard zorst..which turned out to have been blowing quite badly:smile5:

Thanks to Charliecd001 for the great deal on the system (y)

Thinking of painting the tips black..wadda you think.

Just need a Pid brand infil panel to finish off:D

Just a straight piece of m12 threaded bar 4 inch long with 2 nuts on.
On the drivers side the hanger is there attached to a hanging bracket..the same bracket is on the nearside but had a plasic blanking plug..i just removed the plug and inserted the threaded bar.

Someone has been busy!!! Looks good mate, think I will have to sort something for mine some time soon! Makes a hell of a difference to the rear of the cat having dual exits. Does it feel more responsive???
