Probably one of the best mods on a V8. The straight pipe just unleashes that V8 burble on startup and idle, and when you put your foot down... glorious sound!

I was quoted 80 from someone who does it locally.

.....Has anyone cut open the back box, gutted the gubbins and run 2 straight pipes through. Keeps the OEM look, no issues with MOT and more burble?

Question Are we counting the 20 interested folks or what?

If I know the cost I would commit.

Being committed is what I is good at... M.

I got a back box from our forum sponsors a while ago so I could gut the internals. So far I've removed the top of the silencer casing to see whats inside and how to re-pipe it inside, sorry dont have pics yet, but theres only 2 pipes need cutting/replacing in there, one pipe looks easy enough to replace but the second pipe looks a bit more involved because of the angles/routing of the second pipe as inside the silencer itself is just pipes and baffle plates which need to be removed before I can install new pipes in there. Hopefully pictures to follow but please dont hold your breathe as the weather has been so good I've been spending most of my free time out on my bike lol!
