Give Lambros some time, strictly speaking I wasnt meant to sell it so soon as Lambros is sourcing a flange so it bolts up rather then welds up. That could take a week, the guy at HiTech made a copy on paper of the stock flange and the exhaust is being sent to Bathrust to get made up in the factory (flange included)

Spoke to Lambros today--it looks like it will be 3 weeks before install.

Kris, you never answered my question. What is it about the mid pipe that your gf didn't like? Does it drone? Too loud? This will help some of us who may be thinking of doing this mod.

Spoke with Lambros on the weekend at Hi Tech Exhaust and he informed me that his retail price for the custom mid pipes as fitted to my car will be $950 if anyone is interested.

That is removing the two centre cats and resonator and replacing with 2.5 inch dual pipes to 3 inch single pipe before axle.

Well Duncan.... I was sort of infront of the less spirited drivers...myself included..

Very hard to take in the scenery with the speed limiter kicking in..
